Blogging Has Opened My Eyes to a World of Beauty, So Here's 2008 Through the Eyes of My Camera

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with M & M Realty of Brevard Inc. BK629999

 I just wanted to take a moment to reflect back on the beauty of 2008. I love taking pictures. And blogging keeps a camera in my hand everyday now.  I have seen beauty through the camera's eye that I don't know if I truly saw before.  I just wanted to share the incredible sights my camera has shown me this year. I had so many beautiful pictures, I had a hard time choosing which ones to use.

You have some beautiful pictures! I especially like the one of the steps leading down to Melbourne Beach. I've never been to Florida. Seeing these pictures makes me want to visit someday.

Hi Victor, We don't and won't ever have snow as far south as we are.  My daughters would love to see it someday though. I'll have to get them up north sometime. I suppose snow is great to visit, but not to live in. Stay warm!

Hi Amy, If you've never been to Florida, you must make a point of coming sometime.  Let me know and I'll show you where I took the pictures going down the steps on Melbourne Beach.  Take care and stay warm.

Hi Old Lady Miss Mary,  How you doing?  I hope you didn't stay up too late last night - I did only because I picked my daughter up from a party at 12:30.  I guess I'm the one that's getting old!  Thanks for the compliment on the pictures and thanks for your friendship here.

Hi Lou, Oh, so you knew how bad it got in some areas of Melbourne from TS Fay flooding.  It was the worst rain we've seen in 50+ years.  Hope you are well and have a wonderful New Year!

     Sandy, those are all such really awesome photographs! You really nspire me!!! You are off to a good start for 2009!

     More photography is one of the Top 25 Things to incorporate into my life and business for 2009! The biggest problem is... there are so many must have techno-toys these days to have with me. Let's see now: Treo, Garmin, Flip, Digital Camera, Laptop, Ipod, digital recorder, portable printer. I guess I need to put them all in a rolling case because my daughter "made" me switch to a smaller purse last year! :-)

Hi Pat, My camera goes with me EVERYWHERE I go, no matter what...and it's only a cheap $100 Olympus that does everything automatically.  It's amazing what I see with my camera in my hand.  It is a MUST HAVE for me!
