The squirrels have been running wild in the backyard hiding their nuts for the winter. House has been busy trying to catch them. I'm actually surprised he hasn't caught one yet. Although I would rather he didn't. A couple of years ago I found him with a sparrow and the back end of a bunny in his mouth at the same time. True story. That adventure costs me $500. The bunny gave him a nasty stomach worm.
He loves to watch them from the base of the tree. I actually saw him paw the tree. Perhaps he was trying to tip it over. Smart dog for trying.

This post is geared towards photographers. However, if you're here to visit the blog (thank you), please stay and read over the article. Perhaps it'll resonate with you the next time you take a photo.
I take pictures everyday. Every single day, lots and lots of photos. What I love most about photography is that each new day brings a new adventure. And nothing beats the anticipation that grows when that next shot is brought to light. I'm very passionate about the images I capture.
With that passion some trouble may be lurking as well. What am I talking about?
Have you ever passed through a No Trespassing sign to get "that shot"? Have you ever entered someone's property without asking first? Or, have you ever photographed people without their permission? I've walked away from several situations in which I felt like I was violating someone or someplace. Are some places off limits?
So, as a photographer I ask you, how far will you go to take a picture?
According to Webster it's a short period of sleep/a brief nap.
Studies have shown that taking catnaps will help you live longer. Additional health benefits are explained in this article. You don't necessarily have to be in bed to take a quick snooze. Read more here on how to squeeze in a quick nap.
Adam and I are working on this project together. I'm behind the camera and he's my subject for the series. The whole idea is to show you, with images, various locations that you can sneak in a few minutes of rest and enjoy the scenery around you.
***My brother is pictured above. I've been going through some family photos and thought this would be a good way to kick off the series. Later this week, I'll release the first photo.
Three photos of the boys that were taken the day I got my new camera. That was back in January. I finally took the time to sit down and teach myself how to transfer them to the computer. This may sound like a simple task to you, but coming from someone who's been dependent on a point shoot for years, it was a huge accomplishment.
This camera continues to amaze me at the images it captures. Funny expressions and all.
