It's a Wrap!

I finished my the shoot for Plantation Patterns.
It's the outdoor furniture company that I was shooting some photography for their catalog.

I took the final pictures early this morning. The setting was gorgeous. A house, which was formerly a barn, in the rural area of Helena on the edge of Bibb county. I will have more on the barn and a tour on Tales from Bloggeritaville.
I thought I would share the final picture from our shoot today. What a peaceful scene.
I can imagine having this view to enjoy on a daily basis!

On a HOT day, such as this one.....there isn't much that is more refreshing that a cold cola from an icebox.

The Georgia Aquarium

I won a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. We went on Sunday by charter bus. We were fed breakfast and watched the new Alice in Wonderland movie on the way. It was good. When we arrived at the aquarium we were given a Behind the Scenes Tour. It was very informative and enjoyable. Then we had a couple free hours to explore ourselves. We had a nice time.
Jack's favorite part...the movie. Go figure.

Friday, June 25, 2010 what cost?

I won't lie, I cried like a baby as I captured these photographs (along with close to a hundred others).
As a lover of both the ocean and of animals and nature, I am physically sick and disgusted at what has become of God's creations. I can hardly speak of it. But I made an attempt to at Tales from Bloggeritaville.
But I can also share what I have seen with my own eyes....and through the lens of my camera.
This is my beach, my home. It's where I played as a child.
It is now my children's playground. Or it was.
It was fond memories for so many, now polluted...raped.
And this....this is why I cry....a gut wrenching cry.......

Over or Under Dressed?

Stark Contrast: Workers in protective suits for oil cleanup in the gulf drive past young surfers playing in the water.
One question, "Where is momma?"

Water Spout?

Mother and I watched from our balcony as a funnel cloud quickly began to form and then disapate almost as quickly.
Interesting! But I've always been a "weather girl".
Dear Rosemary Lucus, I still love you.

"Cushy" Job

Today was the first day of shooting a magazine for Meadow Craft Outdoor Furinture. Today we shot cushions, gorgeous colorful cushions.
And it was H.O.T.
I don't think I have ever sweat as much as I did today.
