Don't we all feel like this sometimes? A little fun mixed with crazy hair day? That's all I can say about this.
Some silhouettes that I captured of my son. I love playing around with photography. Lately I have had to do most of my photos from my phone. I like how they turn out, but I wish I had the higher resolution of my SLR camera. Anyway, I do love the feel this photo captured.
No I don't mean get away from me or anything like that, I mean at times we need to get away from our daily routine and re freshen up. That is what I did this past week. Just my family and I went to enjoy Pinetop, AZ for a bit. Loved the cooler weather and the pine trees everywhere remind me of my home town, but smaller. We enjoyed bike riding, horseback riding at Snowy Mountain Stables, and hiking trails. I completely forgot about my normal life for a while. That is how it should be. Forget and refresh. Here are are a few images of my time there. I can't wait to do it again. The worst part of leaving reality is coming back. lol.
I love taking portraits. They are fun and can give a good story about a person along with some personal character. I was just having some fun with my daughter as she was posing for the camera. She always has a great smile and does great with pictures. That's the best way to be able to capture someone in their comfortable natural state. Whey posed too much it can be awkward or unnatural in some cases. I'm glad I was able to capture this moment in time. That's what photography is all about. Those little moments caught in time to help us remember. That's another reason I love photography so much. Moments in time...
Solar Eclipse 2017. I was not fortunate enough to be able to be in the spot of totality. I was at work and did not even have my good camera. So I used what I had, an iphone 6. This is what I got. It was still exciting, but I really need to make the effort to see it in totality on April 8, 2024. Either way these are a few shots I got. the lower one the camera didn't capture it, but the lens flare did. Kinda cool. Anyway, I hope anyone watching had a great time. I know I did. :) Nature is just exciting.
Kinda raining with clouds around yet letting the sun shine through. I had to stop the car. I got out and took this panorama of a double rainbow on my way home from work yesterday. Magical and breathtaking. It's like the road leads right under it or to the pot of gold at one end. To me just seeing it was my pot of gold.

I don't really like the idea of Halloween, but taking all the meaning out of it it was always fun to dress up and get candy growing up. The same is true with my kids.
My younger kids love to dress up and Batgirl wins again. I hope you all stay safe out there this year and have fun.
