Capturing life's most precious moments

Friday Photo Funny

I had a shoot this week with FIVE people and FIVE dogs.

It actually was really fun, and the family are some of my favorite people in the world.

The dogs looked this way, and that way, and ran away...

But what are the chances I'd get a picture like this?

They look almost well-behaved, huh?

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Bubba got an ear infection.
A pretty good one.
And since it had only been a few weeks since the last bad one had ruptured his eardrum, the doc immediately put him on antibiotics.
Penicillin this time.
About a week later, we got him ready for bed and noticed THESE!

Ummm....that can't be good.

Silly mom didn't think to stop the antibiotics

the next morning they were even worse, so we took him to the doc.

Who said he was having a severe reaction to the penacillin.


Something else to add to Bubba's list of "things I'm allergic to"

While traveling through California at night, I saw the most amazing full moon. Luckily, my camera was handy, so I took it out and starting shooting.
Have you ever tried taking a picture while going 85 on the freeway at night?
It's no easy task, let me tell you.

Unless you're in to the snake-like headlight blurs.
You can't use your flash because it will reflect off the windshield.

You can't use a tripod, for obvious reasons.
You can't exactly stop in the middle of the road.

You can't predict when you will come across a nice big road bump, either.

I guess it's just hit and miss. Pure luck, I suppose. I shot, and shot, got frustrated, changed settings, adjusted lighting, and eventually gave up because nothing looked quite right.

When I got home, I put the photos into my (not-so-trusty) computer, and found this one. Right at the beginning. Before any frustration had set in. Sheesh... It's not anything amazing, but considering the others, I kinda liked it.

Maybe I'm luckier than I thought.
