pet sitting, art class and editing a my story for a magazine

I was pet sitting last week for Lady a 14 yr old rat terrier - who looked for her family the whole time I was there.   this is a photo of me and lady - she didn't want her photo taken and kept looking down

 My friend Joy came to visit on Aug 25th to go to Long Beach with me.  I got to take a class in making polymer clay necklaces  - I made all 4 of the necklaces below.

 I am having my journey of being a photographer with breast cancer published in 2 magazines.   One is my hometown magazine Fort Mill Magazine and the other is Breast Cancer wellness magazine.
 I am not a writer so it was hard for me to find the words to put on paper and then trying to go through the photos I have taken over the last year was a challenge.
I am hoping the articles look good and make sense. 

September is almost here!!

I can't believe it is almost September already - last year at this time I had made it through 3 chemo treatments - dyed my hair bright pink, shaved it off, went through a hurricane and a bad chemo cause throat infection.  
It's beautiful here in NY today - awesome blue sky and nice breeze - I feel fall in the air.  I love fall apple picking, pumpkin craving and this year Palm Springs with the Shutter Sisters!!  Woo Hoo.
Looking forward to the Palm Springs trip - I missed it last year since I was in Chemotherapy but I am ready this year!!! 

Last year for Halloween I was Charlie Brown since I was bald - this year involves the 60's and zombies!!!!   So looking forward to fall.

Zombies in Long Beach, NY - trying to catch up on posts

Zombie crawl was so much fun to be at and take photos of - I met great people and wish I could have stayed for the walk on the Long Beach boardwalk but I had to go walk a dog I was pet sitting for.

and those are just a few of the photos I took

Long Beach photo Session with L and A

I had a great time with L and A last night in Long Beach, NY.  We were there for Christmas Card photos so I can't show those but I will show you some of the other photos.  We had a great time at the beach and playing in the sand - thanks L and A for letting me photograph you.

Misc Photos

I am redoing my website and while looking for photos I came across some I forgot I had taken.  I have got to get better with posting on my blog - I take photos everyday it's just finding the time to download and post.  I promise to get better.

Bulldog near Union Square - love that face

Halloween 2011 - I went to a local flower nursery and got this shot during their halloween sale - i didn't have chemo that week

shot this while on my BC journey in 2011 

Walking to Chemo session in October 2011 I saw the heart in the sidewalk and in Photoshop wrote LOVE

In April of this year I went with a friend to Philadelphia, PA and past the 5 Ptz on the way - its a building In LIC, NY that is nothing but art- Graffiti

This was taken at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA which was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cell blocks and empty guard towers - I loved that the 2 Jewish men walked up to the walkway and were in my photo - they kind of look like prison guards with their hats on.
