I was taking my friends’ family photos the other week. We were at this awesome-looking stone building at Highbanks Park in Columbus. I was trying to have them sit together on the edge of the stone because I thought it might add good texture. However, getting three kids to sit and pose perfectly in unison was about like herding cats. The parents were pretty much always on and waiting for the camera. Which helps. It does. But the kids were all about doing their own things. Ends up, I pretty much like the resulting natural photos better.

I have this photo as my wallpaper right now. There’s not much to say about it really. I just like it. It’s from another one of those peaceful boat rides on Cross Lake. You can see (hopefully anyway) that you don’t want to get too close to the trees without inspecting for wasp/hornet’s nests. They are kind of everywhere and they were freaking my nephew out. Truthfully, they were freaking me out too. I do not want to be at the receiving end of an angry flying insect with nowhere to go but in the water with a possible gator or two. But as long as you avoid that catastrophe, it’s a pretty great ride.

Among the trees

When I am among the trees

Another shot taken on Cross Lake in Shreveport, La. I love going out on this lake in the aluminum boat. Sometimes there are gators out there. Sometimes there are hornets nests in the trees. There are always lots of fish and beautiful egrets and herons. And there is always peace.
