The Weeeee Beastie

We have two squirrels that we think must be siblings. They chase each other around our backyard manically, coming close every time to nipping the other’s tail. David has taken to zip tying our bird feeders together in an effort to stop them from dumping all the seed to the ground, which is their other favorite past time.

I have a holly tree directly outside my office window . . . and a bird feeder underneath. This little guy spent the better part of the morning the other day leaping from the branches of the tree, balancing perilously on top of the shepherd’s crook holding the feeder and then, once balanced, peering into my window at me.

I took up my camera and peered right back.

Taken with my Nikon D5 & my 50mm f/1.4 lens, which lives more or less on my camera. 😉

Almost Twenty-Five

Meghan will turn twenty-five next week. I’m not quite sure where the years went to, but they have been filled with so much learning, so much laughter, so many long talks and so many quiet times, too. I read millions of words to her during her childhood and told stories upon stories about my family and David’s to her. Memories of growing up with her have been floating through my head lately.

So many life times in the span of twenty-five years have been lived.

I feel as though the tip of the iceberg has barely broken the surface

pictures of my life

Lunch with my best friend, the type of friend that will ask you if she has guacamole smeared on her forehead as you're trying to politely eat a really messy and a really drippy grilled cheese sandwich and not having much success, cheese smeared all over your hands and arms. You look at her and you both burst into laughter because she gets you and you get her and you both love each other for all your quirks and weirdness.

Playing with new lighting modifiers and losing track of time. Always a wonderful thing to happen, knowing that you're so immersed in learning new things that time stops and stands still.

Mountain biking and daisies blooming and locals cleaning out ponds and hanging out on street corners. A found feather, milk and cookies and a food shoot that went well, my first one.  

And decisions rolling around in my head as to where to take my photography next, as well as this space.
