Being a Tiger is still better than being a Gamecock!

Having fun working with some old images tonight. Here is one for today. We didn't get the gift that Tiger fans wanted today but maybe it will come next week. Here an image for good luck. Merry C

Another Bench

Another bench--the leaves tell the tale. Once a spot to sit on a summer's eve--a bit too cool on these fall evenings--and dusk comes too soon. Winter is close behind--maybe I'll get a chance to capture some snow on this bench before spring makes its way.

Say hello to Jack-my sister Donna's Caryn Terrier-He is quite a character. He loves to hang his head out the window while riding in the car. He if full of energy but sometimes in the evening will settle down for a snuggle.

Red Barn

One of my favorite shots from our trip to Boone via Charlotte. Went to Charlotte to vist my sister Donna Lynne--then from there to Boone to visit my niece Danielle. While D.L. ran a 5K for Danielle's sorority, Anna (baby sister) and I ventured to Valle Crucis, a quaint village near Boone, and I found this shot. Anyway--I love old barns and this one was in the perfect spot for a picture.

A long way to the top

A couple of weeks ago we took a day trip to Tallulah Gorge. It was a lovely fall day and the leaves were just about at peak. To get to the bottom of the gorge you can walk down about 900+ steps. The problem have to walk back up. My 50+ out of shape legs barely made it. But that wasn't the worst part. For the next 5 days, my calves hurt so much I could barely walk. I think I will stick to trails from now on. They are a little less wearing on the legs.

Just Precious

I enjoy taking photo of toddlers. They are never worried about posing and just have fun in front of the camera. Caroline was precious and and easy subject. And what amazing blue eyes.

Today I took family shots of Bethany, Adam, and Caroline. It was rewarding and fun. I actually took 448 shots. Out of those there are probably 25-35 that I really like. Some of the lighting was too harsh but I am working on editing. Caroline was perfect and so happy. She was an easy baby to get shots of. I think Bethany will be please with some of the shots. And I am learning lots in the process.

My blog posts have been few and far between lately. Lots to do both at home and school. And since I started with my couponing addicition, I am spending lots of time cutting and planning. But I am saving lots of money. I finally got around to getting some shots. This is one that I took last week. These silos at the end of Highway 187, just draw me in. In the evening the setting sun makes them glow against the darker sky. I have posted a similar image before, but I like this one much better. I especially love the contrast between the older brick silo with the rust at the top and the slick newer ones.

Meredith and Reese have a lot of Charleston prints in their home and Reese loves Shrimp boats. This is actually a shot he took with my camera when we were in Gulf Shores 2 summers ago. I editing the image to bring out some of the colors. It turned out pretty well. Gulf Shores, Alabama--July 2008. Taken by Reese Alexander-son-in-law.
