Week 9 Tennis


This week I got to visit my extended family, on my dads side. The entire family except mine lives in the same town so whenever we visit it it a family reunion. David of course got everybody together to go play tennis. Not knowing tennis very well myself I mostly photographed it but even that was challenging because I wasn't very good at predicting where people would be so I could be ready for the shot. I did manage to get a few nice ones though this one being my favorite, David looks like he is working so hard hehe. Earlier in the week back in Missouri I photographed at the dog park and got this neat one of some dogs roughhousing. I like how the dust surounds them creating haze and adding to the sense of motion and activity. I also finally made it out to the coal plant in town to make some photographs like I have been meaning to do for awhile. The totally blue sky was a little bit hazy but the timeing was good right before sunset.

Week 27 FGC!

I have so many favorite photographs from this week. I was at FGC(Friends General Conference) so there was loads to photograph and I was in a photography workshop so I was even more photographically active then usual. I worked very hard to slim down the hundreds to just these few very best. The last two you need to know a little bit about the Quaker activities durring FGC. The first of the two is of wink which is a wrestling and kissing game. I wont go into the full description here but check out this article that talkes about it, http://quaker.wikia.com/wiki/Wink_(game). I will say however that it can be extremely photographic but is a good challenge to photograph successfully. The very last photograph is of one of the AYFers(Adult Young Friends) participating in the ritual celebration feast at the end of the week. It is done in worshipful silence and you can NOT feed yourself but have to be fed by others, and you get to feed others :) Loads of fun and a great way to wrap up a bondin…

Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers.
