As I sat outside on the kitchen door stoop this evening, I glanced over and saw that the daisies were starting to bloom.
I grabbed the camera, thinking all the while that I have very much missed the creativity of photography, and how far behind I am getting in my learning of this craft.
Deciding that the daisies were deserving of a blog post, I thought of Meg Ryan and her character’s description of daisies. It was then that I remembered that I had already used “aren’t daisies the friendliest flowers?” for a post two years ago.
Ah well, they brought a smile to my face none the less.
As did Louie. His face will make anyone smile.
Louie and Daisies.
Comfort at the end of the week … and before the long weekend ahead.
What a lucky guy!!
He rides around in this padded cart and his motorcycle drivers told us that they go nowhere without him.
I’m telling you … it was so cozy in there, I almost wanted to get in there with him and ride along!
Isn’t he a sweet old guy?
And since my camera is in the shop (no photography) and my bike is totaled (no rides- are you feeling sorry me yet 🙂 ) I’m finally posting these photos which have been in draft since September.
As I walked out of the office at the end of the day, my mind was focused on the pending photography shoot of a friend’s elderly dog. I was feeling a bit apprehensive, not having had much experience with animal photography. Dexter is much loved and will soon not be with us. Adding to that apprehension was the fact that I wasn’t very happy with the photos I’d taken the day before.
When climbing into the truck, I saw the sun shining through these leaves. The colors were so like fall … in the beginning of June. As soon as I pressed the shutter, I knew I’d be happy with the result. In fact, I really couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I posted all three!
And that was just the boost of confidence that I needed to go visit Dexter.
I’m not sure I captured the personality of this sweet old boy. What is it about a dog? No matter how much in pain or how hard it is to get around, a dog will still wag that tail and try to make the people around him happy.
What a guy! I’m so glad I met him.
This is the final post of three that features photographs from one beautiful afternoon session on a farm (and actually, the photos in this post were taken at two different farms that are down the road from one another).
Meet Clyde …
Hickory lives on a farm down the road (I am reposting his picture because I like him so much!)
There’s a spring on the farm where Hickory lives …
and a rock wall nearby.
