This weekend, my photo league will be doing a photo walk at the LaRue Farm in Lewisville.

I went by today to take a look at the place, and snapped this quick shot.

Two different photos today…

One is Thomas, a Welsh Cob who is one of the therapy horses at Riverwood where I volunteer on Wednesdays.  The other photo is of the lights at the Italian restaurant where my daughter and I ate tonight.

I had my third vintage vogue photo shoot tonight, this time with the lovely Heather!

It’s getting harder and harder for me to keep up with this blog.

I’m taking photos every day, but the speed of my life has made it difficult for me to post them. I’m going to make more of an effort to keep up, but we’ll see what happens.

Four months into this project and I’m starting to rethink it.  My initial purpose for doing this was to have a photo log of my 50th year.  I’ve accomplished this so far, so that’s good.  But my underlying goal was to improve my photography by making myself work, forcing myself to pick up my camera every day.  That hasn’t been so successful.  I’ve found myself just taking ordinary photos to make sure that I get something up on the site.  I’m not pushing myself to take extraordinary photos.  That comes when I have a job to do, or when I have a stretch of time to really focus on my photography, which isn’t very often.

So today is an ordinary photo.  I’ll keep trying, though, and we’ll see how it goes as the year progresses.

We found a stray dog today on the way back home from my mom’s house.

He was standing in the middle of the road, confused and without any kind of identification.  We asked the neighbors if they knew who he belonged to, and they didn’t know. So, at my daughter’s begging, we took him home.  He is a sweetheart and we have enjoyed our brief time with him.

I put ads everywhere and contacted all of the local shelters.  I think we’ve found his owners, so fingers crossed!

My antique doll collection creeps most people out.

I have hundreds of dolls that I collected throughout my childhood.  I love their faces.  They don’t scare me at all. Some of them are so expressive.  So I decided to work on a new photo series called Life to the Lifeless.

Here are a few shots from today.

I’m back in the studio tonight with another Vintage Glamour shoot.

This time with Andrew, who did a great job of looking like a 1940s mob boss or suave actor.  Oh how I love studio work…
