Utter Insanity

Thats whats going on at my house today..
We have 3 guys here preparing the yard to seed it with grass, They came with one big truck, and tractor and a bobcat. Now add to that my husband who dug a huge hole in the yard so we can build a 3 car garage, he is beetling around in our bobcat. Now add to that...2 double trailer gravel trucks, which are hauling sand in ( to fill the hole of course). Thats what my yard looks like today..thank god the kids and I are off to a wedding...LOL

yup...2 bobcats, 1 tractor, 2 gravel trucks and 4 guys... I'm OUTTA Here!

I have been STUNG!


DH brought them home with him last night.... I got them set up and managed to take 5 pics, before the kids got really angry and thats was it. I only used the one with the giant softbox, I figure one light at a time for now!
I cant believe it, Everytime Amanda would show me a photo, I was in awe of the HUGE catchlights and the skintones etc.. I told her every single day that I was inlove with her Bees..
Thank goodness they only took 1 week to get here...amazing..from TN to alberta in a week, the books Im gonna be sending Petra will take longer to get to Ontario than that Im sure...Stupid Canada Post! What fun bees, more metering in it was all trial and error last night til I got it about right! item to purchase will be a light meter...down the road tho...way down the road...once I earn some money from a shoot, and buy a full year membership at the photography forum. LOL

Here's a peek!...IM in love already...

I love lines!

OK I really loved the lines from that wooden I went out hunting for some railroad tracks with a gentle curve in them!..Lookie what I found just by my old home! We headed out for a drive, and I figured I would go down to the tracks by where I grew up. We used to ride out horses along these tracks all the time as kids. Obviously not very many trains on them!
Ry had a HOOT!, she was dancing, and singing, flapping her arms like a bird! It was hard to get her to sit still, even for just a second Thank goodness for high Shutterspeeds!

The sun was out pretty full force, there was a slight overcast butnot very much, taken about 12 noon, on our way to the park! Hee hee thats how I bribe her all the time...We can go to the park, but first mommy needs to take your picture for a few minutes OK? She always pipes back in with a high pitched "SURE".

She seems so lost and lonely in this one, I think its my favorite of the day!

New pics of Filly!

LOL Heather..notice I called her Filly! thats not her name...poor thing still doesnt have one...we really just need a barn name for lucy or ruby or something, anything other than "filly". We turned momma and filly out into my front paddock, all plank fence.HOw wonderful it is to be able to see them all day, running, grazing and sleeping in the sun!

The color in these is a bit off, she isnt as brownish as she looks there..she is more mousey gray, but I havent figured out how to 'adjust' browns in PS LOL...
