Devin is my youngest (about to turn 10). To get a serious photo from him is quite an accomplishment. Usually I get photo's like this . . .
My nephew Eddie is cute as can be and is pretty good at letting me take his picture. As long as he can see it on the back of my camera right away! This second photo of Eddie was taken at the airport while we waited for our plane to take us to Florida.
As we flew to Florida I'm sure I embarrassed my sister every time I sat with my camera pressed up against the window of the plane. I was just so captivated by the cloud formations we passed. And I couldn't pass up a chance to get this shot of Mt. St. Helen's and Mt. Rainer.
One of the things I love about photography is the ability to make ordinary things beautiful. These 2 photos are of weeds that grow in the field behind my house. I have the top one as a 20x30 print on my living room wall. And as soon as I can find a frame I'm going to put the bottom photo up as well.
My first car was a white 1989 Mustang with a moon roof. So I have a special place in my heart for Mustangs. While shooting some pictures of the cars at Oktoberfest the owner of one let me get into his car. I captured this photo of the steering column.
Messing around one rainy afternoon I came up with this shot of the "Dead Man's Hand". These were supposed to have been the cards Wild Bill Hickock was holding when he was shot in the back.
I went to the Woodburn Tulip Festival a couple of times this spring. I went once with a photographer friend and once to take a class on macro photography. Even though the weather did not cooperate, I enjoyed my time there and plan to go back again next year.
This is one of my favorite photo's. I entered it in the Oregon State Fair and now it is hanging on my wall.
After Thanksgiving I took a job taking pictures of Santa at an upscale mall. On our down time I would look out the window, of the Santa house, at the huge Christmas tree. One day I noticed you could see the mall reflected in the ornaments. So I brought my camera . . . . unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to get the shot with out MY reflection. :)
