Had a blast spending an hour with these beautiful preteens. Two are my own twins (biased much?) and the third is their shared BFF!
Last night a group of my former photography students and I went to Windy Point to photograph the skyline. We didn’t think we’d see the fire from there, just the smoke. In a matter of hours the fire had climbed over the next peak and was visible from our vantage point. As of 10:00 am today, people are being evacuated from the area at the base of the mountains. In this photo you can see the fire cresting the ridge (far right).
Here we are as a group earlier in the evening. You can see the smoke pluming behind us.
For years I have been wanting a Lensbaby. I first heard about them when I noticed a college’s new twist on portraits. When I asked how she took the images, she said, “with a Lensbaby!” I thought, “what the heck is THAT?”
Needless to say, I immediately looked into it and ever since, have been waiting for the day when I would own my own. Well, that day has come, and I must say, this fun, creative lens was worth the wait! It takes some getting used to (all manual focus on a tilt!), but what better way to crash course yourself than with highly spirited, fast moving Arabian horses?
This summer I bit the bullet and bought a brand new Go Pro. I’d been wanting one for years, especially during some grand adventure when I’d think, “Man, it would be so cool to record this on a Go Pro.”
Since my purchase, I’ve barely put the thing down! Currently, I am working on a vlog with a fellow teacher which highlights inspirational teaching practices, but in my spare time I am having a blast recording the fun activities at my school. Here’s a quick video of the class cheers from Spirit Week!
