It's always amused me that there is Dance Dance Revolution at the library.

I'm still here!

Long time no see, right? I keep completely forgetting to post. I'll cite school as an excuse, though it's also because of work, and because it rained almost the entire week. Anyway, this is yet another old photo. It's League City Elementary School. And my car gets a cameo!

Turtles in the pond

It's been a while since we've seen any animals, so here are some cute turtles swimming in the pond in League Park. The pond there is fenced in, so these guys are permanent residents. I love how their little noses stick out of the water.

This is an old one that I did for my Fundamentals of Photography class. Some might recognized it because I linked the digital version of it on an earlier post... this is the film version. Anyway, the lantern is found hanging outside the front door of the Old Fig Factory in Old League City.

FYI, this was shot on T-Max 400 on a Pentax ME Super. All the white spots are the fault of my scanner... I spot toned what was the original print and there weren't many of those. I've got dust on the inside part of my scanner's glass... I photoshopped the most noticible stuff. Stupid scanner.

Another old picture, I'm afraid. Saturday was too miserable to take photos after all. Also, sorry for missing Friday!

This is behind League City Elementary School. It was taken over the winter break... but there's cartons of milk in those crates! Did they just get left outside all of the break?

I think we need another book sale...

The Helen Hall Library has a book sale a couple of times a year... and this is what is piled up in storage so far. Unfortunately, the poor room will have to hold out until the first weekend in May. Good luck room!

Once again, a photo taken in the projection room at the Helen Hall Library. There were some projector accessory boxes setting on the counter and I thought they were kind of cool.

Jingle my Tengu

So... Maggie decided to jingle the tengu bell on my digital camera's bag and told me that she was jingling my tengu, which sounds wrong in a way. XD Here's a photo. This all happened in the projection room in the Helen Hall Library before the anime club.

I'll post some better ones soon, I'm sure. :D

I'm even busier than I thought I would be with school, and it was only the second day today. Besides that, it's been too miserable to get out and take photos the past couple of days. So, here's another photo of that baseball field I posted a bit ago. Sorry it's not very good. Rain or shine, I'll go on another photo-taking mission this weekend!

This shouldn't be allowed

It's not supposed to get this cold this far south in Texas.

The center of League City is Main Street, along which can be found lots of cute little shops. Unfortunately, it looks like this particular shop has closed, judging by the "For Rent" sign in the window.

Tomorrow's back to school for Li and I. We'll work hard to make sure we still get to take lots of pictures for you all, though!

I've mentioned this photo to many people, but I've never shown it to anyone, so here it is. Eli, one of Maggie's dolls, spent the night and I played with some of my toys... the result was that only the Star Wars toys were left standing, and Eli looked rather worried.

And if ya'll are wondering, this post is not, in fact, backdated! I really did get this right at 11:59. XD

I couldn't resist posting another picture of one of my dolls. This is Branwen again. I finished up her newest outfit today, and I'm very happy with how it turned out so I can't help but want to show her off.

Warm tree

Everytime I see this tree, I think it looks like it has a big sweater on, and I see if very often. Those vines have creeped up the trunk over the past several years and now they've completely covered most of the main trunk part.

Texas loves its history, and the Texas Historical Commission has historic markers all over the state. I believe there are at least three in League City. This is the one in League Park, explaining a bit of the history of the city and the park itself. If you click on the image you should be able to read it!

Fairview Cemetary

Fairview Cemetary is one of our historic Cemetaries in town. It isn't that big, but several of the graves are from the early 1900's. Unfortunately, the bright blue and yellow trash cans kind of stick out.

Hitching Post

This is back by the shopping center I posted a picture of last Wednesday. They put hitching posts up to add to the "old west" feel of the place, though the image is kind of ruined by the pavement and the garden hose, I think.

Near League City Elementary School are League City's old Little League fields. They're still used occasionally, but more recently a larger complex of fields based on famous major league stadiums was built elsewhere. I remember when my brothers used to play Little League, so I prefer these old fields myself.

That's now how you use a see-saw

I'm still mostly sitting around in the house feeling bad, though I am better than I was. Anyway, here's an old one, taken once again in League Park, of Maggie's feet on the center of one of the see-saws.

This is the old Saint Mary's Catholic Church in downtown League City (across the street from Helen's Gardens). It's still used occasionally for weddings, but the congregation has long outgrown it. One of these days I'll post a pictures of its second building and the current one.

Bridge on the playground

Another shot at League Park! The main play area is pretty big; there're all kinds of things kids can wear themselves out on. Here you can see one of the slides, the bridge, and the strange, circular monkey bars. There used to be a completely different one when I was little, but I don't really remember it that well... I want to say it was wood and metal, though.

Old West

Beside League Park, someone built a shopping center made to look like an old Western town, complete with false fronts and a psuedo-wooden sidewalk (it's really concrete with board lines etched into it, and painted brown). Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be doing very well. Some of the shops are still empty.

League Park

To go to the parking for League Park, you have to take this all the way around the park. For some reason, there isn't a direct entrance to the park off Main st.

Happy New Year!

This is one of the stands at the Little League fields by League City Elementary.
