This is not just for photographers in my area. I can send it to any one in the United States.

I saw a the first comic on MCP's blog and thought it was really funny. The comic strips come from it is really cute and may start posting them a few times when I don't have any thing new to say. Here are the first three I saw and thought they were worth sharing. Plus today is Sunday so it makes it even more perfect to post these.

Our family reunion was Labor Day weekend here are some pictures I took on my last day there. These were taken right behind my grandmas apartment. She lives in a retirement home and we came in the back way instead of parking in the front and walking through the center to get to her little apartment. When we pulled up my mind started rolling. Actually I did not go in and say hello for the first 20 minutes we were there and ended up going back out for a few more minutes before I sat down and had a talk with everybody. Here is what I captured...

Labor Day Fun

Saturday, September 5, 2009

Braxton and I took a break from our family reunion and went outside to enjoy the sun. We woke up to a nice thunder storm and are due for more rain this evening hopefully it stays away. Here a picture I took of him. We had a mini session in the hotel room this morning when it was the two of us. Will post a pic of that soon.

1963 Impala

Monday, August 17, 2009

There is a show on CBS called Gary Unmarried. If you haven't seen it is funny and this year it will be it second session. In Garys house above the mantel he has a picture of a red 1950 car. The photographer only captured the head lights and the side of the car. Ever since I saw that picture I have wanted to try to see if I could replicate it. I am not much of a car person could not even tell you how to change a tire.

Yesterday I was sitting in my room watching some videos on another photographers blog and he kept posting photo challenges, 15 minutes photo sessions with one lens. He was using the 50mm f/1.8. Getting inspired as I was watching video after video decided to get out of the house for a few. I knew a few places that were some good spots and have never had the time to really get out and see if I could get creative. While I was driving where I wanted to go I saw this 1960s Impala sitting all abandoned, rusted and calling for me. So I set out with my camera and my 50mm f/1.8 and went to see what I could capture. Here are a few images. More are posted on my facebook,myspace, and flicker. I will post the whole series on my site soon.

Back to school..

Monday, August 10, 2009

Before school starts on August 12th and the clothes start looking worn and used thought we would go out for a mini back to school session. Here is Hannah in one of her favorite new outfits that she got to pick out. Hard to believe this girl just turned ten years old a few years ago. Summer went by quickly it was filled with trips to grandmas house, camping and lots of soccer practices.

This session was actually done a few months back but was going through some folders and found these. She is cute and had a lot of fun.
