Three cheers for new camera batteries so I could download my photos! Click the photos to make them full size.
As I mentioned before, Rachel & I were blessed with a photo shoot by my talented friend, Alice. She allowed me some target practice in the flowery field also. I liked this "batter up" pose.
Please forgive this unflattering Alice angle. Look upon it recalling all the bad photos made of you (I'm thinking of ME here) & she looks faaaabulous, daaahling.
We had some cool props in addition to God's created wonders & the property owner's, uh, to quote the kids, "stuff" : Rachel brought her hat & wore her freshly polished boots. Alice provided her grandfather's chair & the frame borrowed from Pam - another fantastic artist with a blog you should view. -- She had a huge photo shoot happening the same day. Alice encouraged us to get to the field early before the lighting was perfect for all the other shutterbugs.
I learned about lighting for photography: shade = good.
Too much direct sun = bad.
Rachel seemed to enjoy being the center of attention since you know she is ignored all the time here.
I like this one best I think.
Who knew red, purple & yellow - not to mention green, could look this good together.
Well, yes, I know He knows...
Here's the back of the field. The flowers are finished for this season but, Lord willing, will remind us of our Great Creator's artistry again next year.
