This mixed bowl of wax and stone, artificial fruits has been in my wife's family for decades. Some pieces are South American and others European and were collected during my father-in-laws Army tours to Brazil and Portugal.

Normally this isn't my typical style of work, but I wanted to try something different. I was in the creative mood. This image was taken in Florence Oregon. We had gotten up early to catch a sunrise. But were instead, met with foggy and dark morning. I think that the fog, actually adds to the mood of the image.

I was out walking this week with my husband and my son, at the trail we go to to show Orson the cows (which he loves) and on the way back from seeing the cows Orson and I were playing and I had turned my camera off but was wearing it, and chatting with my son about leaves and rocks and the snail shell Todd had just found for him. I looked up and saw Todd had bent down a small maple tree (they are like rubber) and before I could even think he had let it go and when the tree snapped up all the leaves stayed behind and hung in the air for a split second. It was amazing to see and would have been an incredible shot. Needless to say I missed it. But to humor me after I chided him for doing something awesome and not warning me first he saw there was one leaf left and pulled the tree down again so I could catch the single leaf before it fell. He looked as we walked for another tree small enough to bend, but it was a once in a lifetime shot and I missed it. But the image is sharp in my mind and Orson giggled and giggled.
Missed the shot, but had a moment.

Though this may not appear to be a historical site at first glance, this is a bridge at the George Washington's Distillery and Gristmill in Mount Vernon, VA.

Leave it to the toddler to find the only puddle in a hundred miles during a record setting drought.
He had a happy day.

Normally I choose to shoot at the beach during the "golden" or "blue" hours, but I found this particular scene irresistible. The sand and sea foam had me. I shot low for perspective and depth to showcase the waves crashing on the sand.
