It's a hard knock life

Just encase you wanted some more of the chickens here are two more that I had time to play with.

Miss E's quotes of the day.
"Can you find my skates Tia Tanni, Can you find my skates?" "I just did a fart!"

Chickens In the Wind!

I know you all have been wondering where I have been so I thought I would put up a post letting you in on a few things I have been up to. My trip so far has been busy busy busy. The kids keep me on my toes and want to be at my side all of their waking moments. So I thought I would get up a little early and hide from the chickens. I knew my time was limited so I here are just a few images that I had time to play with. The mother chicken is up and I think we are going to escape before the others wake up . Hope you like!

Playing with these guys you don't need 24 hour fitness.

Red Hot weekend!

Over the weekend I shot a wedding along with some family pictures for the group. It was so so hot. I put SPF 70 on twice and still ended up with a sun burn that matched a tomato. Here are a few from the first session.

Oh for those of you listening in Seattle I will be there shortly! If you want to schedule a session it isn't to late!

Version 2

Version 3

6.. 5..4..3..2..1 Let the chicken part begin!

On the way to work in the morning I usually take a few minutes and call the chickens in Washington and wish them a good day. I know it has only been like 6 months since I have seen them but there is something about chickens in the sunshine that just makes me happy. Knowing that the littlest chicken can now run and play in games with the rest of us is going to be so much fun. Oh please let it be sunny and warm in Seattle, I have grown so fond of the sunny southern California days I don't think I could take a week of rain and no chasing chickens outside.

Here is one of the chickens from a few years back when I decided that they needed a little bit of art and color in their lives. Also so fun to see how far I have come in my photography in the last few years.

Friday night with the A's

Tonight I went to the A's game and finally had the perfect lens to shoot some great action shots with. Don't ask me who won or even what the end score was I was to busy in my own little world. So in my book it was a great game, a great game to get some action shots.

Happiness for my ears

Over the last month or so I think I have bought like 10 new albums. Here are two that friends turned me onto.

Nothing like good music to make the time pass while working for the man.

The results are in!!!!

Today I got the results from the OC fair on what pictures made it into the fair! I was so excited, to think I was considering not entering this year. I am so happy I did. Here are the two photos that made it into the pro category. Come and visit them at the OC fair in late July. Oh what frames and how big am I going to print?

Gold Metal: Sprinkler Event

Yesterday I went out and visited little Miss M and her brother(s). A little disappointed that it was to hot to go on a walk so we turned turned on the sprinkler. Miss M loves the water and if there was an Olympic event in the sprinkler I think she would win a gold metal. Over the summer hopefully she can get in some swim lessons so we can add Olympic Gold Swimmer next to her name.
