The Hunt

Do you remember the simpler times?  The times when we didn't have 200+ channels to choose from? (Thank goodness because I was the human remote) The times when it wasn't necessary we have wifi at our motel or restaurant.  The days before YouTube, chat rooms, online dating, portable phones, apps, GPS, the list goes on and on. Those were the simple times..... 
On my way home from a photo session in Lipan, TX last week, I noticed this abandoned home.  It was pretty run down, but still had a few items of life left behind.  In the main living room sat this old console television. From what I remember it looked just like the TV we had when I was young. You remember, the one with the dial that only had a few channels.  I also remember after we'd turn off our TV a half moon would appear and my brother had me convinced that it was a real image of the actual moon.  Made sense to me. After all, at that time I thought people lived inside the TV anyway.  lol   
Exploring these old homes and various structures gives me a peaceful feeling.  I admit, it's a bit of an adrenaline rush but once I'm in I feel at ease.   Not knowing what I'll find or what kind of photographs the site will offer.  I compare it to those who like to hunt. It's no different than the folks who are quietly looking for that next-big-buck. Those in search for the deer with the wider/larger horns with more points than the last one they shot.  It's the same feeling I get. I'm always hunting for that forgotten treasure that everyone just drives past everyday.  An overgrown, decaying structure that once sheltered a family from storms and someone called their home. It's all about The Hunt.....

Man Of The House

A husband had just finished reading a new book entitled, 'You Can Be THE Man of Your House'.
Finding new courage that he never knew he had, he stormed into the kitchen and announced to his wife,
"From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house, and my word is the 'Law.' You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, bring it to me , and when I am done eating my meal, you will clear the dishes and serve me a scrumptious dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me, and we will make love the way I want! Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will put on soothing music, wash my back, towel me dry, and bring me my robe. You will massage my feet and hands to relieve any last bit of tension in me, so that I can sleep like a baby ...... Then, tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb my hair?
The wife replied, "The funeral director would be my first guess, unless I have your butt cremated...

What The Duck

Funny of the day by "What the Duck FB page"

Without naming names, I do recall people who once questioned my decision to try and be a photographer or the notion of quitting my job to pursue it full time...  :/

Doing It In Style

 There are so many details that a bride must consider when planning her special day. Besides the big stuff like location and food, the decorations are pretty important as well.  What decor will perfectly set the tone for the special event?  Everything from the pew bows to the table centerpiece at dinner. There's a lot to consider.   

Besides the bride and groom, this blog series showcases some of the other details we've captured at a wedding....the decorations.
