Eye See You


Eye See You

On Father’s Day weekend, we had a big family gathering at my brother’s home in the country, where the shade trees are tall and the pace is slow. It was the perfect June Sunday afternoon for a feast of steamed crabs and shrimp, pork barbecue, chicken, hamburgers, and every side dish imaginable. After lunch, I grabbed my Nikon and walked down to the pasture to join the boys who were taking pictures of the horses with my old Nikon D50. I was enjoying watching them have fun snapping photos and wanted to capture the moment. I hoisted up my camera, zoomed in and took this shot. So, where are the boys? Look closely, they are standing there on the fence looking at this beautiful horse. They say beauty is in the “eye” of the beholder.  Indeed it is.

Friendly Pig


Friendly Pig

My son has always loved pigs. Don’t really know why. Maybe because they are extremely smart animals, and he’s pretty smart too! Anyway, I found this shot in a stack from 2007 that I thought captured the feeling I have today — excitement! It’s Friday and the start of a three-day holiday weekend. Heading to the rivah with Jenny and Nikon in tote. Farmer’s Market tomorrow, which usually provides some good subject material for photogging. Happy shooting!
Camera specs: Nikon D50, 35 mm, F/8, 1/250
