A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!


Autumn colors on a winter day

Autumn colors seemed to come out today on January 9th of 2009. Not something I really recall seeing in the past January's in Westwood/Pinetown, at least not this brilliant in color, or perhaps it was with the help of the sun on this more than bright sunshiny day in January! It was quite easy to decide what pictures I would be posting today!


Ahhhh but this was something I have been trying to do with my little camera since I bought it a little over a year and a half ago. I wanted a full moon, at the time I took this last night, google claimed it was 98% full.I have tried this shot to numerous to count. My moons are never round, I m not steady enough and the camera really is not meant for this kind of picture taking, and I do not have a tri-pod. I was absolutely thrilled shitless when this one came out so well. I took a couple dozen and only this one came out.
So I would like to share it here. I am so thrilled with it.
It must have been luck.

I have tried way too many other times and it did not work to be anything but LUCK.
I will take LUCK!!! 
I did not do anything with this picture on Picasso, no adding light,  none of that. This is exactly how it came out.
It's weird, because I AM beginning to think that perhaps the moon IS ROUND after-all. 
Because up to tonight, the moons I see in my camera lens don't ever resemble a circle, LOL!!!

To capture that moon without a tripod, and the cable for the shutter button is a wonder. I have tried many a night picture in the old days when I was running wild with my 35 mm, and always had problems.

Howdy Hi!
I would love to hear what you have to say. Why not leave me a comment?

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
