More of the horsies!

And this one is the mom of the above horse (the same one from the previous post with the story references)... she has big blue eyes!!


There's a first time for everything...
I've been around horses before... and have even ridden a few... but I've never photographed them so when my friend Traci told me she was going to her coworker's home to see the horses... well, I jumped at the chance to invite myself too! : )
Here are a couple to tide you over until I can finish editing.

*insert excited squeal here*

My new Canon 40D and 60mm macro lens!

I bought them from another photographer last week... so they are new to me! I went to take photos of horses and two Australian Shepherds this weekend with a friend so of course I had to take my new stuff!

I think I broke my neck though... two cameras might have been too much for me.

An Apple A Day...

So I realized (while at the chiropractor... and mine's the best! We ARE going to fix my 80 year old bendy neck!) that Max gets a lot of attention on my blog... and Professor's face is all over my office (he's so darn happy!) and even the cats, Uni and Clementine, have been getting quite a bit of face time on here lately...
Poor Apple.
She's been left out... but just photo wise. She's the one who gets to sleep next to me at night!

Without further ado, heeeeeere's Apple!

Oh... and me. : )
Facebook style... you know, holding out the camera and snapping the photo of oneself? It's actually really hard to do with my camera... it's heavy (but I love my battery grip) and I don't have a macro lens (yet!) so it's hard to focus so close.
At least I didn't take it in a mirror...

Let there be Cupcake!

I had been looking forward to my session with Cupcake, a 10 month old Chinese Crested, for two weeks when I finally got to meet her. She definitely lived up to my expectations... she is SOOOO cute!
I absolutely LOVE her fluffy white head o' hair, and her freckly neck, and that TAIL!
See for yourself:

I can never resist a furrie grin! And big ears are my serious weakness...

Cupcake let her mom put this cute bow in her hair... but it didn't last long. I think she's probably a pretty tough cupcake under all that pink! ; )

Cupcake has a cupcake squeaky toy that she doesn't get to see too often these days because she likes to eat the stuffing out of the hole she tore in it's side. But the stuffed cupcake had to come out to play Saturday morning and boy was she excited to see it!

And last... what I think is a really neat "oopsie" moment:

Enjoy Cupcake!
