Sunrise in the Backyard

Haven’t really done much on the web these last few days. Elder girl going to prom, her 18th birthday, and getting ready to graduate in a couple of days. Time flies so, soooo, sooooo fast. A couple of mornings ago I was walking by the east window and saw this scene. Grabbed my camera and […]

DESPITE STRAIGHT LINES - June 27, 2011 - 3:27 pm

This is a really beautiful frame with the natural rays pushing through the branches and light fog. Really well captured.

WSHS Seussical Slideshow

I took a few shots at the musical last weekend and made a compilation of them for this slideshow. The actors and the choreography were beyond compare. I applaud them all and would have been actually applauding except that I had my hands full of camera. I did not record the actual sound track so […]

Looking at these slides made me feel like I was sitting in the front seat watching the play all over again, your shots are amazing, I love the emotions that are captured on the kids’faces! Also, the lighting makes the cat look scarier and Horton sadder. Thanks so much for doing this Lee, the seniors will have it forever. Kristen did a superb job choreographing the dances and she was a beautiful bird.

WOW!!! That was amazing! Who makes the costumes? The kids? The hairdos on some of those gals were just astounding!! Loved the background music but found myself wishing for the real sound track. Kirsten looks adorable!! All that “daddy pride” is well justified!! Give her a congrats hug from her Aunt Chris!! Terrific job on the photos!!!

Kirsten’s Last Play in High School — and it was a hit!!

Kirsten co-choreographed the musical “Seussical,” (see how easily you switch into Seuss-speak!!). She also performed as one of the bird girls which is the shot below. The kids all did an awesome job, I think that the timing, choreography, acting, singing and dancing were the best I’ve seen in a student production. And better than […]

My Children – Once Again Having Patience With My Portrait Practice

Actually, this time it was the Elder Child who needed a “senior portrait” for one of the groups she is in this, her last year of high school. Sigh. Big sigh. Anyway, I said I’d do the senior portrait if she let me do some other stuff. My assistant, as usual, was Kelsey. She helped […]

Beautiful daughters, buddy! LOVE the wind shot of Kirsten! It took me a second to figure out those are socks on Kelsey’s feet! For a brief moment I thought she painted her feet in a crafty binge!

Beautiful portrait and I love the second shot 🙂

Flowers & Bees

The azaleas are blooming which is problematic for my allergies but I really like the bright colors. We have white, pink, and red–I wish they would last all  year. Of course, there are lots of critters taking advantage of the blooms. Here a couple of them. Taken with a macro lens, 105mm, f/7.1, 1/2000.

Wow! Nice job, Bro!! Best picture of a bee I ever saw! Our bees look different from yours. You have black & yellow; we have brown & beige. Is that one a bumble bee, not a honey bee? Can’t tell the size of it. Love the bronze metallic tinge to the wings!! Great camera & talented guy behind the lens!
