2009 -- A Photo Journey

As 2009 comes to an end, I'd like to share a few random photos I took during the year. When I look at these photographs, it's like taking a trip back in time as I recall the days I took them.

JANUARY: Narcissus is one of my favorite flowers. They are in their peak blooming season here in Mississippi, and I hope to capture some with my camera soon. I took this picture last January.

FEBRUARY: Close up shot of a monument in the Vicksburg National Military Park

MARCH: Headstones resting under the branches of an old dogwood tree. Taken at one of my favorite places to photograph in Vicksburg -- the Vicksburg National Cemetery, located in the Vicksburg National Military Park.

APRIL: The inside of a Snapdragon blooming in our courtyard

MAY: One of the first hummingbirds of Spring


JUNE: Cotton Blossom near Lake Providence, Louisiana

JULY: July 4th Celebration, Vicksburg

AUGUST: Mississippi Delta Sunflower

SEPTEMBER: Twisted Crape Myrtle trunks in the Vicksburg National Cemetery

OCTOBER: The seed pod of a Dogwood Tree at the Old Court House Museum, Vicksburg

NOVEMBER: Oak Tree in Vicksburg National Cemetery

DECEMBER: Light dusting of snow on a Japanese Maple Leaf in our courtyard

I'm looking forward to a new year of rambling with my camera and discovering and capturing in pictures the places I go and the things I see along the way. I hope you will join me.

I love your blog. I grew up in Jackson, Ms and have lived in GA for over 30 years. Todays pictures brought back wonderful memories of MS. MS will always be "home" to me. To you and yours a very happy and blessed 2010.
