Fun Monday, The Anniversary Model

Happy 1st Anniversary to FUN MONDAY. One year ago a single photo request from Vicki in Oklahoma and Peter in Willowtree, NSW Australia, inspired what has become to many a weekly necessity. There have been a multitude of subjects that share a common denominator: FUN.

Last weeks host passed the duties forward to the original Mistress of Ceremonies: Catch The Light.

Vicki wants us to look back to January 22, 2007 at that first post, My View From...

But, wait! There is more. If you look now each can throw in his/her first blogging post for no extra charge. Mine was June 11, 2006 and had an inspirational title: My Dusty First Hello!

In case your curiosity is still not satiated, I have uploaded two pictures from last night. These are photos taken with my new Christmas present. The one on the right is my very first night shot.
( I promise I'll get better at it.)



A warm welcome at my front door to all those participating in Fun Monday - and an enthusiastic invitation to the rest of you who aren't. Check out the list in the sidebar at Catch The Light and HAVE FUN!

So we post a picture from our front door? Got it! I'm playing! Hey ... that night picture was good! It lit up the porch, but the amazing thing is that it picked up the stars! I have great respect for that, because my camera doesn't even pick up the light from gigantic buildings at night! Ooooh Aaaaaah Fabulous new toy!
I'm looking forward to seeing your fun bag.
Thank you for your hilarious comments you leave. You are just too quick, and I love it! So glad I found your blog! Wendy

I am NOT curious at all, (lol) but I have to complain, I don't see very much out of your front door !!
Gattina said…
I forgot, you started exactly the same time as me !!

Hey I didn't know that about the dust! I guess you learn something new everyday.
I like your pics and they way you displayed them!
Beccy said…
It's fun reading those first posts and I love the night photo.
Willowtree said…
Great pictures Pam. I guess the sprinklers don't get used much this time of year.

I'm off to read your first post, but I suspect I already have.
Peter said…
Nice photos Pamela, just fancy there being snow in them!!
Robin said…
I remember how novel I thought you handled the FM last year; the "poster" makes your photo look so "official".

LOVE the night views of snow falling (love any views of snow falling...especially if I can reach out and touch it :/).

Can you believe it's been a year?
Hootin' Anni said…
Brrrrrrr, I love my warmer clime in the coastal bend of Texas better. LOL


The photo of the night time snowfall is terrific. I love that one!!!

Happy Fun Monday.
ChrisB said…
It's funny you should take a night shot because I also did that but didn't post it because I thought it wasn't clear enough!
Sandy said…
Beautiful pics, Pamela. I like that Vicki had y'all link back to your first post.

It's like getting to know you from the start. Of course, the rest of my day will be spent catching up.
nikki said…
I need a new camera that's better at taking night pictures!!! Brrrr, the snow makes me cold!
mjd said…
Thank you for the warm welcome; your hospitality seems to melt away the cold weather. I do like watching birds take a dust bath.

You didn't have a small group that first time either. In my mind it was only about 5-8 people that first time, I see it was more like 20 and I love the "Pamela in her Pajamelas" Too funny!

Love your current shots too. Looks like you're having fun with your new camera. :)
Beckie said…
Your first post is fun! Dust and birds from the very beginning - that is great!

I like the night photo. It snowed here all day, but then quit in the afternoon.

Have a good week!
Kaytabug said…
Your first post was fun to read! I really liked your first FM picture, "As viewed by Pamela in her Pajamelas" cracked me up!!! This years photos are beautiful!!!
Funny, but no matter how much I enjoy photography, I don't think I'll ever be able to properly operate a D-SLR. I just don't have that level of talent in me.
Linda said…
What's wrong with the night picture? You can see the snow falling and everything! The one with the wrought iron fence is lovely too - it looks like you live on an estate!
jientje said…
I love that story on the dust!
You also have snow there! We haven't had any all winter, here in Belgium!
Karmyn R said…
Well, it is cold enough to snow here - but of course, that means the skies have to be clear, so no chance of snow.
Sigh.
Wish we could get some of that pretty snow down here.
Love the wildflower pics below, by the way.
Happy Fun Monday anniversary and thank you for all your comments on my blog!
Alison said…
I love your pics..the night shot is great!! Your first post was wonderful!! Did you keep some dust for the birds??
susan said…
And all this time I thought you were just a lousey housekeeper!

I love the night time snow shots. They are quite lovely.
Robinella said…
Your front view is just as nice as your rear view. Hey, if I were a man, that would be risque! :-)
ped crossing said…
If I had more packing peanuts, I might make my yard look like that. We get so excited about a skiff of snow. My students stop everything if they see even one snowflake.

I think the night shot is just fine.
Michelle said…
Beautiful snowfall!!
Christine said…
Pamela, your night photos are so beautiful. Great shot with the snowfalling!

Loved your first post, how did I know it would be a lovely story about dust and birds. :)
coloursofdawn said…
I love the winter night photos where the snow is spotted in the photo and the background is so black.
Kathleen Marie said…
What a fabulous present. My camera is simply and extension of my arm and my eye... Love it!

The photos are wonderful... Lots of snow here and a whole 0* at present. Cold!
janet said…
cool photos, pamela. have fun learning the ropes with your christmas present ;-)
Kila said…
Happy Anniversary! It's been fun :)

It's hard to master photos of snow falling. (While at work today, looking outside at the falling snow, I kept wishing I could capture a decent photo of it for you all!)
Cynthia said…
I have snow envy again!

I have a surprise for you at my blog!!!

Hi Pamela,
I see you live East of the Cascades. The place I call my real home is my house West of the Cascades in the Seattle area. My husband and I are living in Southern California in a Condo because of his job right now. Thanks for stopping by my fun Monday!
I have found that night photos are a bit challenging. I do love seeing how the snowflakes look like snowballs falling.
Joy T. said…
"Pamela in her Pajamelas" LOLOLOL too funny! The photos are great, it's not easy catching snowflakes on camera :o)
bermudabluez said…
VERY nice job with your new camera!! Love your pics, Pamela Pajamela!!
Snow!

*sigh*

One day I want to see snow again.
kitten said…

I was watching the news the other day and noticed the weather guy for Spokane was talking about snow for Idaho and Washington. We have a friend in Mosses Lake and he was saying it is cooler than normal this winter. But, snow falling is always beautiful. It is when it gets very cold, blowing, and you have to shovel it when it doesn't look so beautiful.
Enjoyed your post!

Loved all the beautiful flowers in your previous post!

Lovely.....I like the way the snowflakes look like stars shining.
Debbie said…
Great shot of the snow falling.
