The Most Animated Little Girl in the World

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Over the weekend, I attended my niece’s birthday party.

I don’t have girls, so I don’t know much about the face sparkles or doing little girl hair or twirling.

But I do know that my niece is deliciously fun to watch in all of her divaness.

Bette Midler, eat your heart out.

I have to admit, I cried a little when I saw this image come out of the hopper.

That’s my Mom on the left and my “favorite big brother” on the right. And the photo was taken on my birthday.

I don’t always check to see what the images look like after I click the shutter. I seem to do best when I just relax and start shooting.

This is proof that I was VERY relaxed.

I think it had something to do with the margaritas.



Can You Hear Me Now?

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

I love LOVE this image.

From the hat to the wood paneling to the suspenders to the mystery of what they were whispering to each other that afternoon — I love it all.

Between the two of these guys (my sister’s father-in-law on the left, and my father on the right), there was over 160 years of wisdom sitting in my mom’s living room that day. Add to it the age of the living room itself — the walls of which could tell HUNDREDS of stories — and the number leaps to well over 200 years.

Whether or not they heard what the other was saying, though, is the true mystery of the day.



A Rare Glimpse

Meet Benny. A.K.A. “Benzilla.”

I am rarely able to get a good shot of Benny, as he has two speeds: Fast, and Speedy Gonzales. This photo was taken as he was running down the stairs to watch his brother play football. Thank you, Nikon, for your exceptionally fast shutter speeds.



His Happy Place

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Meet my father, Frank.

Frank is in his happy place — lounging on the backyard patio he built with his bare hands in 1961. As you might imagine, Frank’s happy place is much happier with an ice chest full of cold beer and the company of any (or all) of his seven surviving adult children.

Get your laugh on, Dad.
