Fishing at Freedom Park


While walking around the pond at Freedom Park,
we saw some kids and their Mom with a friend fishing.

This is Rivy after looking in the cooler filled with small fish...
I think he wants to pick one up...

...............................................................................................
This girl was so cute and sassy.


 brotherly love....

Showing off the catch...  and just being plain silly.

Walk About...

Freedom Park
Walking about at Freedom Park in February...
Some trees are just beginning to sprout new Spring leaves,
While most are still bare.


Bridge Over Troubled Water

.............................................................................................................................

The late afternoon sun is low on the horizon,
casting brilliant amber light on the bare trees across the pond.
The Winter breeze of early evening
 is blowing soft ripples across the water.

I love this light.

......The Other Side......
When you think the grass is greener on the other side...
it's really just weeds.

Just Pictures..

While the ThreeSixtyFive project I joined in 2010 was challenging as far as meeting the posting deadlines; which I failed miserably.... the challenge of finding an interesting daily subject was quite exhilarating.

Since I was so lousy at the posting part and usually managed to post about once a week,
I decided to try a "52 Weeks" Project.

Can you say boooooring...

I always have way too much material for one photograph a week.
I  wound up posting at least 7, sometimes 10+ pictures each week...
I'm pretty sure that's not actual protocol for a 52 Weeks Project.
And I still have the same posting issues.
So on that thought.... 
I have decided to abandon the project, and just SHOOT!
.............................................................................
This week I'm sharing my most recent Dog Sessions.

This is Max, an adorable little English Bulldog.
I had a great time with Max. He's very well trained, which makes my job so easy.
He smelled good too, which is always a plus!
You can see the inclusion of Mom's legs in all of Max's best shots...
he felt more comfortable with her close by and therefore
he was more cooperative with her in the shots.
ahhhhh such a sweet little smush face!
............................................................................................................................................................

This is Bailey.
Just a pup, only nine months old.
 Bailey has not yet attended obedience shool and was quite a challenge.
I don't think he's ever seen a camera before. Not one as big as mine anyway...
He seemed quite freaked out by it, everytime I raised it to shoot.
Oh, but he is sooooo sweet. Such a little love bug.
So tall and gangly; just a big ole puppy dog!
Bailey does not like to be indoors during the day, so he didn't smell quite as nice as Max.


I had a hard time keeping focus during the outdoor session. He kept running away...
I hope to have a chance to re-shoot wth Bailey.
He is a Beautiful Boy!
......................................................................................................................................................
.......................................................................
No dog set is complete without my own pup included.
This is Zeke...
He's almost 14 years old now... It's rather sad to think about that, sometimes.
He's been with me since he was a tiny little babe, just 7 weeks old.
I love him dearly. We have been through some stuff together.
Through thick and thin...


Zeke used to love sitting and posing for the camera. He'd sit and stay.
I'd make a whining sound and he's cock his big head...snap!
These days he'd much rather ignore the camera.
I think he pretends it's not there.... and he is soooo over the whining thing...

When I have the camera in hand these days, he is always looking away.
Sometimes when I call his name, he'll draw his ears back and give me this uber disdainful look....
Zeke @  13 weeks.... whining charm in use....

...................................................................................................................................................

This is Sarge....{not his Real Name}
 this is an uncommisioned shot.
He is on the other side of an invisible fence... hence the happy look. {sarcasm intended...}
I pass him every day on my walk...he used to scout the street from atop a car that sat by the driveway.
That car is gone now, so he now keeps his vigil from the lawn.
He's sure a beauty... I've seen his owner playing with him, and he looks healthy...

Beauty, Light, Horses....

As usual, I'm so far behind in posting....
We all know a picture is worth a thousand words,
so I'll let these images speak for themselves.
I hope you enjoy my most recent Session, with my very favorite horses.

Sister Shoot


These two beauties are the daughters of a friend and fellow photog.
We went out and about and landed at Lynches River, on a warm Sunny afternoon in early February.
Lynches is one of my favorite places to shoot.

 We landed here on this old tank, after finding a dead bird on the bench down in the gully.
 This background should be bursting with the reds and greens of new birth by now.
Time to go back!
