Leadeth Me to Greener Pastures

The mimosa in the back is strikingly beautiful in this early evening shot made with my 300mm.

Since the record-breaking rains of May have finally abated, I was able to wash my car. I am always happier with my car when it's clean.

With my wife Abby visiting her sister in Arkansas, I am trying to clean the house a bit in addition to my outdoor activities.

Abby and I have vacationed by ourselves before, but it’s still a slightly odd feeling when we spend days apart.

Abby knows that I often finish my outdoor work and grab a camera as the golden hour approaches, to make images like this one down by the pear tree.

As I left work yesterday, I heard a scanner call about a horse out of its fence in Byng. As I got close to home, I saw this.

The last couple of days I’ve been able to work outside, and the rains of May have given me the green pastures of June, which are beautiful to work and wonderful to photograph.

Last light graces the tangle of barbed wire I leave on a post in the south pasture.

Max the Chihuahua is his usual doofus dog self, but any time Abby is gone (most recently for a 10-day hospital stay last month), Sierra waits at the door for her. It’s both nice to see familiarity and devotion in a dog and sad to see how much she misses Abby.

Our Chihuahuas, Sierra and Max, wait on the front porch for me to finish with my outdoor chores.

  1. Had the pleasure of briefly visiting last weekend. I can’t remember a more beautiful June.

  2. We’d love to come out and visit y’all some time. I’d like to see/photograph “the farm” again, especially with it being so green. Maybe next year. Looks like you’re coping with temporary bachelorhood pretty nicely. Wonderful photos. I especially enjoy the shot of the car in the car wash; reinforces the idea that a photo can literally be made anywhere of any subject and be of interest.
