Very pretty! And thank you and your fab husband for having an RSS feed. Now you appear magically on my start page. Wheee!
You’re right. The photo reminds me of the Sandias. I wasn’t always from NJ… did a stint in NM. Boy, do we ever miss the west. Especially when we see shots like today’s.
Oh man, I miss the west. The West is the best.
If you squint real crazy-like, you can see a Mars Rover bouncing along the horizon…
Awsome pic, those mountians are incredible.
I got nothing to say.
You know the conversation yesterday about it’s not the camera, it’s the person taking the pictures…well, I think it’s also not the dooce effect that makes these pictures great, it’s still the person taking the pictures. I take a ton of pics and found Heather’s explanation of the Dooce Effect and tried it out on a bunch of my photos last night – from faces to landscapes, to objects – and none of mine even came close to comparing to hers.
If you want to try it Bekah, just google “Dooce Effect” and one of the first that pop up is from Heather.
Beeyootiful. I love the colors!
It looks cold…. icy cold.
In addition to categories A, B, and C, there needs to be the following:
D. a request for something
So, today I’m doing D.
I second the motion put forth by Mrs. Stray (#24 at 8:23); we’ve definitely got to see some of these Santas.
By the way, doesn’t checking the photo update feel a bit like checking your stocking for presents during December? or was my family the only one that put little things in stockings on the days during Advent (candy, stickers, simple stuff)? It was always a big thrill to notice the lump or feel something that crackled before we headed off to school. This is a bit how I feel looking for new pics or blog posts. treats!
Oooh! I love it!
hellooooooo jon! (echo echo)
do you think he heard me?
beautiful picture. makes me want to move to Utah and live in a cabin in the woods.
I live in central Illinois – also known as the asshole of the midwest. When we go over a bump in the road my two year old says “whee – a hill!”. It’s so sad. How I long to see something even remotely mountain like. Here we’ve got all the conservative republicanism of Utah, but without the scenery.
Some of those windchimes look like little people.
Asshole of the Midwest, huh?
I used to live in The Armpit of Massachusetts, which I thought was the best geographical designation ever, until I heard someone refer to Florida as “America’s Wang”
So what’s Utah, I wonder?
The Cabbagey Boobs of The West?
It was SO past 8 am when I posted that, eastern time anyway. I didn’t get UP until well after 10 am. Not sure what time that is in SLC.
I mean , I fantasize what it would like to post all early …but that’s about as far as I go. Getting up early sucks. I trained this babe of mine to get up at 8 am, nurse, and promptly fall back asleep until 10. Shit, my husband even brings her in. All I have to do is pop out a boob and go back to dreamland.
Frankly, I know Dooce will be here when *I* get up. She is dependable like that.
Bet you wanted to know all that huh.
…and again with more cow bell!
What a beautiful picture! Do you have a “far away” focus feature? Whenever I try something like this, it always focuses on the foreground item no matter how hard I try to get it to STOP IT! This camera has it in for me.
I just had to comment to say that NO ONE ever understand when I say ‘span time’ and I love that you do it, too!
*Danielle* – “It was always a big thrill to notice the lump or feel something that crackled”
Seriously, girl, you should have that checked out with your doctor.
Lovely photo as always, Dooce!
— Mom, who gave you that Santa?
I think that effect is called the “50-year-old postcard filter.” It’s in there, I swear!
p.s. – My best friend that I’veknown since we were 7 had her first baby like, 5 hours ago! BABIES ARE AWESOME!
Cool pic. always a good one!
Cool pic. always a good one.

sorry. I couldn’t help myself.
cool pic. always a good one!
/impossible to resist!
My God, I just jumped on a bandwagon. Forgive me.
PS Those windchimes totally remind me of cowbells now.
i won’t say it. i won’t say it. i won’t say it.
I have to agree. I have no idea how single parents do it. Especially those that get little support for their children and work full time to make sure the bills are paid. My hat is off to them. Perhaps we could all dig a little deeper this holiday season and give to a local charity benefiting low income families? I think I will.
Well, here’s how *I* do it–I watch the Egg Song until the pain goes away…
Oh, and vodka.
I would totally hire you to professionally take pictures of my kids for Christmas photos. You are truly amazing!
Stop counting off like schoolgirls lining up for free candy.
“Yay, I’m 6th!”
Who gives a rat’s ass?
Here, have a rat’s ass! It’s on me!
Grinch, Much ado about nothing.
Road Rage much?
This is what I imagine a cold planet Mars might look like.
I’m almost certain I’m 77th. Yay! (?)
Most every picture is like a little preview for my trip out there in January. Can’t wait!
you are fab and i love this sight! Thank you for sharing your life!
Me thinks someone’s heart is two sizes too small.
grinch, i thought you were funny. i’m totally sick of the “whoo, i’m first!” crap. sheryl, i have no issues with road rage, before you ask.
leta’s in double-digits! yay! happy 10 months, oh most coveted and adored child of the blurbodoocery.
I hear that 83 is kind of a slut, and no one likes her much. oh, wait…
Savannah– Oh the irony. Hehe
Savannah, I thought the sluts *were* the popular girls.
(Anna, I love the way you type your name in all caps with spaces, admiring the visual and audio, symmetry.)
with regard to single moms – i say it all the time, these women, these remarkable women who parent their kids on their own (and sometimes single dads) inspire a sense of awe and wonder in me because i do not see myself surviving the weekend of single parenthood. there needs to be far greater social regard for parenting in general and especially for the single moms out there.
let’s hear it for the single moms.
I also think single moms are amazing!! I have no idea how they do it.
Dooce your pictures of the Utah landscape are amazing!
Wait. When did you go to Tibet?
