I had a Five on Friday planned to post, but after spending the last day editing a month’s worth of photos… I wanted to share my favorites of those instead.

100 Happy Days

August 9th, 2014 No comments

Yesterday, I finished a 100-days-long photo challenge on Instagram.

100 Happy Days

The challenge was the take a picture of something that makes you happy for 100 days straight. An easy challenge, right? Well… it did get a little difficult at times, when I felt I was posting the same things over and over again. But in the end, if it makes me happy, who really cares if its redundant?

Like I said, they are posted to Instagram as well as Tumblr with full captions. Below is a slideshow of all 100 photos as well (sans captions).

All these things make me smile still today! So here we are 101 days later, and still the 100 Happy Days challenge is making me happy.

Would you take on this challenge? If so, let me know! I’d love to follow along!

LOVE taking photos of old cars! It was a gorgeous day… HOT and dusty. I earned myself a nice sunburn (my first in over probably three to five years). My nephew took second place in his category for his car. And I got to spend some great time with family. All-in-all a fantastic experience.

Blood Moon Eclipse

Blood Moon Eclipse

Sometimes, things can’t be captured fully in photo form. That is a hard thing for a photographer to admit. But tonight… tonight was one of those times.

The night the moon turned red. A blood moon.

I always think of the movie Practical Magic when I hear of a blood moon, of as they said, “Blood on the moon.” They didn’t have to explain it signified danger ahead.

I don’t fear a blood moon, though. I view it with humbling wonder. It was totally worth sitting out in the middle of my parents yard with the dog, bundled up and wrapped in a blanket to watch this occur. To see the moon slowly fade, then turn that deep blood maroon. Stunning.

I didn’t realize, going into tonight, that this is the first of four times this will occur in the next year and a half. It will next occur on October 8th, then again April 5, 2015, and then again September 28, 2015. Doing my homework, this phenomenon, while rare, did occur before… in 1909-10, 1927-28, 1949-50, 1967-68, 1985-86, and 2003-04.

Interesting, no?

No matter how often it happens, though, its still an awe inspiring thing to watch. For me, its the whole experience. The dogs barking in the distance. The light wind. Wrapping up in a blanket, camera in-hand. Some people think a blood moon signals the end of the world… and if it does, well, at least the world ended while I was living and experiencing the moment. Why fear such a thing? Embrace it. Be thankful for it. I say God is the best artist, and nature the most amazing canvas. Tonight was just an example of that fact, and I’m so glad I took the time to experience it.

Forget March Madness… April is here!

April 5th, 2014 1 comment

March was crazy.

It had travel…

 15/47: Luggage

Concerts…

 10/47: Roots & Boots

 Events near and dear to my heart…

11/47: 2014 Music City Muscle Walk

Dental appointments…

21/47: Sedative

A fantastic photoshoot…

18/47: Family photoshoot

And the arrival of Spring and its allergies…

26/47: Blooming

But April will be far crazier.

I literally — LITERALLY — have only 3 days this entire month that don’t have something scheduled in them. Be it work, events, get-togethers, meetings, photoshoots… there is something every day except three. I’m tired just thinking about it! Tired, but also exhilarated.

I’ll sleep in May.
