Letting go is hard to do. But sometimes it’s for the best. I got this guy when he was just a long yearling – full of vim and vigor. I had big plans for him. But things didn’t turn out like I’d planned. And really? That’s okay. Because bringing our little ones home from China and homeschooling and running No… Read More
Sunday Snapshot: 14 from 2013
I did it last year. The year before. And even the year before that. It’s sort of a thing, I suppose. And, since 2013 doesn’t want to be left out, here are my favorites from the last year. Not necessarily technically my favorites, from a photography standpoint. Just from a mama’s standpoint. 1. Princess Vivienne. 2. My incredibly silly pony…. Read More
We’ve been having some extraordinarily beautiful days around here. It’s been so beautiful, I’ve been finding all sorts of reasons to spend as much time possible outside. Like Poet. He’s just 3 years old and still a baby in so many ways. But he’s looking so big lately. So mature. We got him as a long yearling and he’s grown… Read More
Okay, I admit it. I might have a leee-tle bit of an addiction. But I just can’t help myself. When the sun is getting low, and Poet is hanging around the fence… I am simply unable to resist. Must grab my camera. Must see what he’ll do when I point it in his direction. Every now and then, he’ll even… Read More
a new day
I haven’t been taking many pictures lately. And it doesn’t help that even when I try to take pictures these days, I somehow can’t even manage that. Oh well. But today is a new day. I’m feeling oh-so-grateful. Hopeful. Joyful. Because, well… God is good. On the verge of celebrating the birth of our Savior, there is so very much… Read More
The girls and I were out the other day feeding carrots to Poet. As soon as the carrots were gone, they moved to gathering the few remaining dandelions and running back and forth, feeding them to him one at a time. Then they were gone. And the girls were done. But Poet wasn’t. He stood and waited. And waited. And… Read More
rock the shot
Recently, I began following several photography websites. Jasmine Star. Digital Camera World. Rock the Shot. What can I say. I’ve got photography on the brain. And this month, Rock the Shot is having a photo challenge for pets. And I just couldn’t resist putting up this picture I recently took of Poet when I went out to work on a… Read More
the last week
It’s the last week of the 8-week photography class I’m taking with my friend and photography mentor, Lisa. It’s been a fabulous ride. She’s pushed us in so many ways. And the final push? Self-portraits. And yes – this is about how I feel about attempting one. Trying to honestly capture myself in a photograph is something I’ve never, ever… Read More
Because he makes me smile. Because he allows me to photograph him relentlessly. Because he doesn’t talk back. And because his funny face made it into the top 10 on I Heart Faces Pet Face contest. So many cute pet faces featured… undoubtedly a few over there will make you smile.
The theme for I Heart Faces this week is Pet Faces. And I just couldn’t resist submitting this as my entry.
