This picture was commissioned by Reese as a Christmas present for his dad.  Reese found the spot and I took the shot and edited the image.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.

It was a dark, dark night...

I think I have posted this shot before--but it just seems appropriate as Halloween approaches.

Sweet Sadie and Jittery Jack

I entered these pictures in the Pet Project at the Anderson Arts Center. I didn't win anything but it felt really good to see my pictures on the the wall of the gallery.  I felt like an artist.

I visited the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte this summer with my mother and sisters. It was very inspirational.  An amazing man who has touched lives all over the globe.

Too Long

Oh my it has been too long. I vow to get back to posting regularly. School has me drowning in work. But I do not want to neglect my photography. I have been concentrating on people shots lately. I like this one.

The Lake-Our Favorite Place

Ronnie and I spent Monday-Thursday this week at my parent's lake cottage. It was a relaxing time, except I had to go to school every day. But Ronnie cooked supper each night and we listened to the frogs and crickets, fished a little from the dock, and enjoyed the peace and quiet. I had a pretty busy week at school so it was a nice respite each evening.

Grandaddy is standing guard

Saturday was Prom Night. While we were taking pictures of the girls, my dad was sitting in the yard with his 22 rifle shooting starlings that try to take over the nests of his purple martins.  Sydney had to use this time for a great photo op.

Forsaken Bridge

This one is for you Donna N.  Cry Baby Bridge--south of Anderson
Here is a bit of the legend as taken from Wikipedia: "There is a "Crybaby Bridge" on High Shoals Rd, just south of Anderson, SC. High Shoals Road crosses the Rocky River at the high shoals point. The bridge which crosses the river is known by locals as Cry Baby Bridge. The local legend (which is repeated in nearly every county in South Carolina) tells of a woman and her infant who died in a car crash off the bridge. By crossing the bridge halfway and repeating a chant, one can hear a baby cry, or a woman scream, or see a ghostly car pass. The story of Cry Baby Bridge has certainly reached urban legend status."

Pennsylvania Countryside

I love looking back through my files to find image in my archives.   I always find a jewel that I didn't really see before. This is a beautiful farm in the Pennsylvania Amish country. Taken on our trip home after dropping Meredith off in New York--January 2007.

Wistful Wisteria

Wisteria--a member of the pea family--considered an invasive species of plant but always so beautiful this time or year.

Red Bud--My Favorite

I love the red bud tree in my yard.  Each year I watch in anticipation for the blooms.  This red bud is at the Clemson Botanical Garden.  I have never seen a tree bloom this way.  I am not sure if it was pruned purposely to cause the blooms to be so close to the limb.  No matter, it was very unusual and very lovely.
