over the weekend

The heat returned with a vengeance, the humidity creating a haze across the area. A sweaty, sweaty run before visiting a local bike park with a friend to practice on boys young and old(er) working on their jumps and whips over the small hills of dirt dotting the park's landscape. I can never get tired of photographing mountain bikers and their tricks.

Lunch out with David before hitting new bike trails 45 minutes west of town for biking and hiking and photo ops. We hit them at the prettiest time of day (and later I had the best shower of my life!).

I attempted and succeeded in making my very first home made Boston Cream Pie, complete with home made pudding sandwiched between the cake layers. It took me five hours, two attempts at the pudding and three separate washing ups, but I think David and Joe like it, seeing that there is only a quarter of the cake (pie? which is it?) left.

This week is shaping up to be pretty busy, but a fun kind of busy. I have a headshot session tomorrow morning, a hands on demonstration at our local camera store of the new Nikon mirrorless cameras that were announced last week that look pretty amazing. Thursday I may be shooting a practice portrait session with my friend, the house mother of the AOPii sorority that I often shoot with, before shooting my first sports portrait session next Sunday at a mountain bike trail north of here. I'm really excited about this one, the subject being a local kid who has raced in all the previous Enduro races that David and I have shot so far this summer. I think it's going to be a lot of fun.

 I hope you all have a terrific week!
