Three Little Men And A Mommy

I had so much fun photographing Erika's boys. So sweet and what beautiful smiles! All of them. What was so touching was how they interacted with their mom. They LOVE their mom so much and it showed. I was really happy that I had the chance to catch their sweet expressions. Here are some of the results.

Can You Stand One More Heron?

This is one of my favorite shots that I took of a Chincoteague heron in flight. I LOVE the detail in the wings.

A spider has apparently been spinning his web near our back door. It looked pretty cool against the outside light.

I Love Herons!

One early morning a few months ago, I decided to walk to the pond that is a short distance from our home. There was a cool mist above the water and, low and behold, sitting near the edge of the pond was a blue heron! I don't know why I love herons so much. They are not the most attractive birds on the planet, but they fascinate me so. I guess part of the fascination stems from the fact that they don't look all that large. Then they get startled and start to fly and I am always amazed at their huge wingspan. I think they are pretty cool creatures!

Fun with Kathi Hansen

This was one of my favorite shots of Kathi. I used a watercolor filter over the picture and just love the outcome! If you click on the photo, you'll be able to see all of the "painting" detail.

Published Piece

Imagine my surprise when I looked at this past week's "Pulse," from the Prince William newspaper, and found that my photo (along with two from other people) had been chosen for the front page. I was beginning to lose hope that it would ever make it in because I had submitted it quite a while ago. Patience is truly a virtue!

Always a mess to clean...

This was one of my recent projects in my class where we had to take a macro shot and then "shrink a person" to fit in it somehow. Here, my friend, Leah, is sweeping up the excess pollen from the flower! Thanks, Leah, for letting me put you to work!

Coca Cola, anyone?

This is my latest creation from my photo class. I love the "movement" of the colors.

Lindsay's friend, Noelle, asked if I would take a few shots of her son, Emre. Isn't he adorable?

Creek Near the Stone Bridge

This the creek that runs near the Stone Bridge.  It had started icing over.

Starry Sunset

The was taken near the Stone Bridge, in Centreville, Virginia.  The lighting was nice and the star came out nicely with the help of the setting sun.
