Photos, photos and more photos!!!!!! [Feb. 25th, 2005|11:10 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
All right!!!!

I've uploaded some photos from when my little nephew Theodore and my sister Kachina were visiting! I have a lot of family members and others here at LJ who might like to see them, so I thought I'd post them here =)

While they were here a week or two ago, we went over to Disney's Fort Wilderness (yes, yes - we go stay at the Disney resorts sometimes even though we live right across the street, lol) and stayed at a wonderful cabin there - I posted some pictures of that too (I know I have some Disney nerds on my list who might like to see that, hehe).

In addition, I have a bunch of photos from around town of plants and flowers and things that I'm planning to use as photo references for nature scenes, etc. Since it's winter for a lot of my LJ friends I thought you might want to see some good tropical-ness, hehe.

There are a LOT of photos here, so it might take a while to load. Dial-up users are warned!!!

Click on the cut link below to see them!


Here are the family/cabin photos!




















And here are the Florida nature photos


























I will probably be painting in not too long - when I start you will be able to watch me HERE on the webcam =)

awww i love seeing photos you post :) Theo is ADORABLE! His eyes are mesmerizing! He looks so intelligent! How old is he?

And those nature photos are amazing. They look like something out of a book. I cant believe you live in such a paradise :) And that cabin looked way too much fun, I absolutely love staying in little cabins ^^ My family and I used to rent one some winters for a long weekend and it was heavenly :)

Btw I'm so glad you're feeling better I was worried about you.

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO!

Thank you very much!

If there was one colour to describe Florida, it would definitely be "green"!

What a precious little one Theo is!!! He is so adorable! I love that cabin. That's what I would like to build when I buy some land. Something simple and close to nature. :)

Those nature photos are awesome! Being a nature lover, I am enjoying looking at them soooo much! Thanks for sharing Jasmine!!!

I would love a little place like that myself! It was so quiet and cozy there, even though it was in the middle of Disney World, lol.

Thank God, I don't have dial up..hehe. Theodore is a cutie pie!!!! I love the stick up hair in the first photo!! I'm sooo jealous of the tropical flowers you have. I'm so sick of winter/snow/cold. I'm moving to your house...hehe.

LOL - yeah, I think I'd be on everybody's hit-list if I didn't put the pics behind a LJ-cut there, hehe!

He's a cute little fellow - he's very loving, too - he kept coming up to me to give me hugs and kisses, hehe!

The first picture of Theodore is so adorable!!!! All of them are but the first one really stands out.

The fifth picture of the plants & flowers, is that jade? Love the roses, beauiful!

I love that picture - he looks so much like his mom - they have the same colouring.

I'm not sure what type of plant that fifth one is - some kind of succulent, almost like a cactus.

VERY cute baby XD!!!!

And those are some beautiful pictures of Florida. I have to go way way west or north to see places like that :( South Florida is so developed. Bah. But now I want to go to Flamingo Gardens because that's a very well preserved area.

The roses are from a trip to Leu Gardens here in Orlando - it's a beautiful botanical park.

I'll have to travel more through South Florida - I've been down to the Keys a couple of times, but we haven't been able to do much traveling since we moved here - we had a very unreliable car, and now no car at all, hehe. I'm going to buy something nice and reliable in the next week or two, I'm antsy to go on road trips down here!

THEODORE!

He's so cute! And he's grown since I last saw him but he's still cute and his eyes seem to show even more wisdom! I don't recognize those bleeding heart like flowers, are they bleeding hearts? Your roses are perfect images! The cabin pics are so envious, I can smell the whole atmosphere! My most fave pic is the one of Kachina and Theo how beautiful! This was a very thoughtful post Jasmine, thanks :) xoxox

Re: THEODORE!

Definitely wise beyond his years =)

I'm not sure what those flowers are - I'm still not too familiar with the southern/tropical plants. I bought a couple of books about plants and flowers here in Florida, I'm trying to learn more about them!

*SPUTTER* Theodore is so adoreable--the first picture, especially, with his hair all spikey.
And those flowers are absolutely beautiful-- No wonder you're so inspired to paint such pretty things.
