What I Love About July

July is turning out to be pretty awesome!  The weather is great.

We’ve made hay for the second time on the waterways.


We finally got the back forty baled for the first time this summer.

We did about 700 square bales and 13 round bales.

I had an amazing crew come and fill my barn.

July is looking pretty darn good right about now.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday where the letter this week is J.  J is for July.

Photography Interests

Animal and nature photography will probably always be my first love, but my interests have expanded.  I want to keep growing and challenging myself as a photographer, so I’ve expanded into photographing humans. I know… who’d have thought.  My nephew and his finacee asked me to do their engagement photos as a warmup to their wedding in August.  Here are some of my favorites.  We started at my farm, made a quick stop in town, then went to his farm and returned to my basement studio.  You can click on a photo to enlarge it.

I have to admit, I think I could like going pro with portrait photography.  I’ve really enjoyed the recent sessions I’ve had.

I’m sharing this with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter I.  I is for my photographic interests and intent.

I Made it Home

I am happy to say I made it home safely from my trip to New York.  I had a wonderful time with my goatsisters.

It’s a whirlwind of two days before I have surgery on my toe.  When I’m done with the surgery, I hope to get caught up with everyone again.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter h.  H is for home.
