Here are a few more pictures from the December photo shoot I did. This is Andelynn. She and Kim have long blond hair that has trouble staying in place. Good thing it can be fixed in editing software! Next time we will get out the spray bottle or the mega hold hair spray!

Annika was a part of the photo shoot I did in December with Kim and a few other girls. Notice the mood ring in the pictures. She has a smile on her face in both so what do the colors green or blue mean? I hope she had fun. I have gotten permission from Annika's parents to post her picture. More to come later.

Many of us commute to and from work each day and some times that drive gets boring! Well take a camera with you and stop (safely) along your route to get a picture or two from your commute. I have been driving past these areas for some time now, I finally took a camera along with me! With some extra time and good tri-pod I was able to find a new way to view my long commute. This was taken with a point and shoot, Olympus Stylus 1. It does a great job for a small portable camera. I love it. The distraction of finding a picture help me make my commute more fun. Next time there is a back-up for hours on the freeway I hope I have a camera with me! Enjoy your commute!

I am realizing I don't post as often as I used to. I have found a new years resolution to work on! Time to look in the archives again. What else will I find?

They say any crash you can walk away from is a good thing! I'll bet money this does not apply to model planes. Think of the number of hours it takes to assemble a kit, painting etc... all to lose it in the last few seconds of a flight. I've been told the hardest thing to master while flying models is always the landing. I can see why! It could have been worse! A broken prop and busted landing gear is at least fixable. Better luck next time friend. I be honest, I'd like to be around when there is a big crash with camera and telephoto lens at the ready!!

Here are three photographs take with a medium format camera, the Pentax 645. It is awesome for portraits and landscape shooting. I am amazed at the depth of field you can get with this camera! Some of my pictures didn't turn out well because the depth of field was so shallow. I kept it a sharp focus on the eyes and let it go from there. It crazy to go from an APSC sensor, my Nikon, to medium format of the Pentax. To be really good with the camera, I'll need to spend more time with it. Pentax has the best price and great quality for any of the medium format camera. Check it it out! I'll bet you will like it too. I wouldn't mind having one myself.
New and old together!
Any one want to be the "Iron" from Monopoly?
Out at Garr's Ranch on Antelope Island, you can tour the farm house, barns and grounds. It was a working farm up until the 1960's, I think. It gives use a glimpse of what ranch life was about. It has new (to the time period) but old (to us now) modern conveniences. You can see some of what I mean in the above pictures. Oh, I love the modern washer and dryer! My wife wishes I would do more of the laundry!
While visiting Antelope Island with some friends, we went to Garr's Ranch. There are lots of things to photograph in and around the ranch. The horses are in a pen just north east of the house.
Just has I was about to snap the trigger on the camera, this horse moved! It shook its head to move off the flies and other pests, but looks as though it is talking like Mr. Ed. (Mr. Ed is an old black and white TV show. It was before my time too!) He might be saying "Hey no pictures! " , "Stupid paparazzi!" or "Do you have an apple?"
