Happy August 1. Happy long weekend to my Canadian friends. And a good friend is celebrating a birthday. Birthday wishes coming your way.
This week’s collection is mixture of images. There was no travelling, spent some time in Studio 13. Practicing with my Lensbaby Composer. Our flowers are starting to bloom so I have lots to practice on. I’ve included a few barrel racing and rodeo ones taken the weekend of July 18. The one of the steer wrestle did quite well on Instagram. My assistant the Trail Camera caught an encounter between the resident fox and our visiting raccoon.
I’m thinking of creating a “Western Images” page of rodeo, barrel racing, western accessories and horses. And a “Treasures and Keepsake” page. I’ve included a few of these shots in this week’s collection.
Another week in the book. It was a hot humid one here. The Boy and I spent a lot of time in the house. Sunday wasn’t too bad, which was a good thing as I spent a few more hours photographing the rodeo slack. Lots of pictures of cowgirls and cowboys riding gorgeous horses. The trail camera did an awesome job of capturing our deer and the foxes that share space with us. I did manage to get pictures myself of a doe and later two fawns. Due to the high temperatures we spent some time creating in Studio 13. I hope you enjoy this week’s photos. We had fun taking them and editing them. Till next week!
This week marks the half way point of July. Summer is going by really fast. Most days the weather doesn’t realize it’s summer. Nights and mornings are pretty cool. The Boy and I went on a rode trip and broadened our horizons and add new content. Found some more wall murals in a small town. These are pretty old but I think they are still wonderful. My assistant the trail camera took some wonderful shots of three whitetail does. I’ve included quite a few of them as there are so beautiful. Such big eyes. The first rodeo since Convid9 appeared happened this weekend. I went and photographed some of the slack Saturday AM. It was a night rodeo so that makes it a no go for me. I’ve included a few from the day. Nice horses. Good riders. Hope you enjoy this weeks collection.
This week The Boy and I were out and about. We both like road trips. We saw two large wall murals. One was called “Market Day”, the other “Dinner in the field”. My peony bush has decided it is time to bloom. It is about a month later than plants in the city. I spent some time with one blossom in Studio 13 using different backgrounds. I have a favorite wonder if you will? No barn would be complete without a barn cat and we have Barn Kitty, the tabby. She decided to come out and see what I was up to. We visited a man who I will call the Gopher Whistler. He does his whistle and gophers come from all over for the bread he feeds them. For him they are very tame. The are cute but can cause a lot of damage. Here are shots from our week, again, a bit of everything. Hope to see you next week.
