Peachy at Farmer’s Market

Kelsey and I were back at the Market after a several month absence. It was hot–at 8:00 the temperature was already 90. Kelsey went to the Ashton Farms stand where this young lady was cutting peaches for folks to sample. While Kelsey tried the different types, I took pictures. I loved the bright red hair, […]

[…] to the Farmers’ Market again; Kelsey and I went to the Ashton Farms stand again (picture of Ada Ashton on July 25). Their peaches are awesome. They also have other fruit but I can’t seem to tear myself away […]

Of course you should have taken the shot!! I LOVE seeing your pictures! You have a real knack for finding pretty young girls, I see. Thanks for the explanation about the privacy thing. Now I don’t have to wonder about it! Do we suspect that this is an Irish lass? Red hair, freckles, etc. Sure looks Irish! Maybe she can give Kyle some more dancing lessons!! 🙂 Keep up the postings! I’ll be back soon. Love ya!!

Ready, Set, Pose….

So…we were at SeaWorld. The family was in line for a ride that I wasn’t interested in riding, so I was wandering about. I was taking shots across a waterway of a man with a pack of dogs when just feet away from me, a young woman began posing for another young woman and then […]

If people are out and about, they have no reasonable expectation of privacy and so you don’t need their permission to take and display their photos. Generally speaking, you can’t sell their likeness without their permission. Sometimes I ask, most times I don’t. In this shot, I did not ask, in the one above at the Farmer’s Market, I did.

If someone sees their photos on my sites and asks that it be taken down, I would honor their request. But no one ever has. Probably because there are only two people on the planet that visit the site! Thanks for being one of them.

Very pretty girl! Like you, I’m fond of the beat up old tree. Question? If you post pix of people on this site, do you have to ask their permission? Just wondering. And should you have taken the shot? Who in the world could stop you????? Big Smile!

Ready, Set…….

The waves that day were pretty good…there were a lot of surfers heading into the water. They would come to the cliffs overlooking the beach and decide where to hike down, I think based on the number of people they saw on boards in a particular area. There were many in the area that we […]

Timely captured and great title 🙂

Surprise Wave!!! Surf is Definitely Up.

So…I am standing about ankle deep in the surf taking shots of surfers. I see two women walking toward me, walking in the sand above the waterline. They are talking with one another, not really paying attention to the surf. I wondered if they would notice the size of the wave coming at us. Hmmmm. […]

This is one of those pictures that my eldest child says I should not take. We don’t agree. Obviously. I am not sure I could have posed this any better. The waves were very high and the surf was labeled “moderate.” When I waded out, the ocean was doing all it could to take me […]

Since neither you nor that lovely girl drowned, I guess I would say “Yes, you should have taken the shot.” But could you please be a little more careful with yourself??? Thanks!

California Surfers — And more

Just back from wandering about Southern California. Went to the desert, to the beach and to LA and San Diego. Took many pictures. Lots of landscapes and “things” but I also shot people, walking, swimming, prancing, smiling, etc. My eldest says that I shouldn’t take pictures of people unless they ask me, I say….nay, if […]
