Springtime in Dallas

I spent some time this afternoon photographing two adorable little sisters.  It was a beautiful spring afternoon...not yet too warm, and a nice breeze was blowing.  Their mother took a small quilt outside, and placed it on the grass for the baby.  The older sister ran around the yard, laughing as the wind whipped her hair around her face.  It was a relaxing afternoon, two little girls without a care in the world. Some of my favorite photographs are these black and whites.

Here's a color shot, just to bring back the brightness to a perfect little slice of time.

Iggy Style

I've met a lot of nice people online, but Holly Joy is one of the nicest!  I first "met" Holly when I ordered a coat for Rose the Rat Terrier from her Spoiled Bratzwear line.  Holly is the Chanel of Canine Couture...every bit of her work is of the highest quality. We then became facebook friends, and as I continued to add to Rose's wardrobe, I began to feel like I'd known Holly forever.  Recently, I took a weekend trip to Jerome, Arizona.  Having lived in Arizona most of my adult life, I knew that Holly Joy was just a hop, skip and a jump back down Mingus Mountain in Chino Valley.  So, off I went on a little field trip.  Holly and I hit it off right away, as I knew we would.  Her pups are all hilarious, sweet babies...all Italian Greyhounds except for one.  Here are some of the photographs I took while there.  I can't wait to go back!  Holly's love and dedication to her dogs warmed my heart.  Thanks for a great afternoon, Holly!

Easter Magic

Today, I got up before sunrise, and went for a walk.  It was Easter Sunday, and a glorious morning.
As the sun rose, the little town of Jerome, Arizona was bathed in the most beautiful morning colors.  It was a difficult choice to make: watch the sun rise, or turn in the other direction and watch the town glow and come to life.  I chose to do both.

Even the view from a bicycle on top of a truck was spectacular.
The weather was perfect...not too chilly, but not late enough in the day to be warm. These are the images, the stories, that I encountered as I walked down the hill and back.

I hope you enjoyed the walk.  My next assignment is to figure out how quickly I can get back to Jerome.
