Beauty in the Morning

I am so thankful I live in a beautiful area. Sure, we are rural. There are pastures and tobacco barns all over the place. The roads can be dangerous if you are not a defensive driver, and even then.

But, it is such a BEAUTIFUL area.

Just another reminder to always be ready to take the shot.

This sunrise was at an intersection and behind me. I didn't realize the beauty until I turned to check for traffic. Absolutely amazing!

Sunrise Painting

As a photographer, I admit that getting "the shot" is not always easy. Sometimes you miss the shot, other times you are not prepared.

This morning, I almost missed the shot. I do not carry my big camera with me all the time. (There can be a major discussion with that, but not today.) However, I had my phone with me.

I took the shot.

I like to think I did not miss the shot.

What do you do when you see "the shot" and don't have your camera?

And don't get me wrong, I miss several. There were several other shots I could have captured this morning with the fog and the tobacco barns that were smoking through the valleys of the country on the way in to work.

Still Shooting

I was hoping to share today about having the privilege of taking the individual and team photos of some amazing kids that play for PALS. Unfortunately, the rain came in and games have been cancelled today. They will carry on next week.

Working with special kids brings joy to my heart. It is not because I can pat myself on the back and say "I did something good today." It is because these amazing kids have so much to offer. They are brilliant. They are overcomers. They are compassionate.

Needless to say I was disappointed to not have the fortune of spending time with my friends today.

I do still shoot photography. I am available for hire. My schedule is crazy for the next couple months as I complete my Master's Degree and graduate in December.

I do want to share what I believe is a great photo that represents the calm in the storm. A unique opportunity to catch considering. I was thrilled to capture this, this morning.

This is my sweet Angel. We rescued her February 18, 2014. She is a very loyal and loving beast that does not like to be challenged by what she deems as inferior animals. I rarely capture a good photo of Angel, and this morning I took advantage of her resting. I believe the photo captures her wild spirit and her youthful exuberance. Yet her mysterious calm creates peace.

Have a great day! I need to get some writing done to sooth my soul.
