This afternoon, while out searching for the perfect "Window" shot, Jevan and I spot the horses across the field. He quickly begs "Mama, Mama, can I run over and see Cinnamon?"
"Sure go ahead" I reply.
Off he runs as quickly as he can. Within seconds his hat, actually Dallas' old cowboy hat, is spinning off his head and heading for the ground.
He screeches to a halt and places his hat as tightly as he can, there's tons of poop on the field and he doesn't want it to end up green.
With both hands holding it down he darts off again.
Things appear to stay put and he's almost made it over to the horses.
Bliss for a boy... hat on head, horses at hand :)
Back in the barn corral I see one of the white horses standing by the old maple tree. It's amazing this old tree is still growing but it hangs on year after year. I think this shot looks like something out of a fantasy book and Sydney said I should clone a horn on the horse so it looks like a unicorn... I think I'll leave that up to the imagination.
As I was saying earlier Jevan and I were looking for the perfect "Window" shot. That's this weeks assignment over at DPS "try to make a window appear interesting." Did you know that trying to photograph a still six year old is impossible? Yup you might as well try brain surgery because you'd have better luck. I took a few shots of Jevan and most were blurry or he is looking pretty uninterested.
Take this one for instance:
Oh the excitement screams from his face ;) I'd show you the others but who wants to see blurry pics?
I'm getting frustrated and losing patience... hey I never said I was the perfect Mother :) But then my highly photogenic loves her picture taken and will do whatever I want daughter comes along. If you only have sons I feel for ya 'cause daughters always try to please their mother's no matter what.... well until they hit the age of 14 and then they don't get their brains back until they're about 25... really.
So where was I? Oh yeah, looking for that perfect Window shot. Scouring the ranch I find a window intact, a rare thing! Ooooo the excitement, lol. I tell Sydney to stand in the window, look out, snap about 10 pictures, and I have, what I think, is a great shot. Yup thank goodness for daughters :)
