Just shots that made me happy.  Not portraits, not even clear or good in this case.  Shots like this are sometimes the ones that mean the most.  The first shot is my dad and my grand-daughter, quite a generation gap...but they seemed to have quite a bit in common after all.

My neice and her boy wanted photos done while I was shooting some of her senior shots.  Let's just say some of the posing ideas were not my choice, but I do recall what it was to be this age and they were kinda cute together.

Gone to the dark side...

Lauren decided to darken the hair.  What do you think??

No Trespassing

Those signs are totally optional and completely easy to clone out of my photos.  It was so amazing to walk around downtown Fredericksburg and see all those historically old buildings with my niece and take these photos.

Found treasures...

I almost deleted these by accident.  I'm glad I took a second look.

Sweet colors of home...

For those of you who are no longer in the Burg and miss this time of year, and for those of you in is a bit of Fall color.

Little Man...

I just got back from Virginia and look forward to posting a couple of those photos for you.  In the meantime however, here's a fresh little face for ya.

I love that the Daddy's tattoo reads "Hope" right where I was editing.

National Oh-So Graphic....

Saw this fellow in the parking lot in the middle of torrential rain.  He just stood about dancing on his prey waiting to make sure it was dead.  I hung around trying to shoot the hawk and it got scared off by another vehicle passing by.  When I was done with the drive-thru he was on the ground in the grass having his lunch as well.

Just a walk around the ballfield.  Texas doesn't get much in the form of Fall--but we do have it and we are in it's midst right now.  If you don't believe me, check out the stores and their stock of Christmas goods. (Just enough to make me panicky --the next few months are going to go fast)
