Down on the Farm

I love when fall is in the air. The nights start turning cooler and the skies are bright blue with beautiful fluffy white clouds. That's how Saturday was. So I grabbed my camera and took a trip to the Dudley Farm Historic State Park just west of Gainesville on SR26. The working farm dates back to the 1850's and is a great "snapping" place.
Old Mr. Tom Turkey was the highlight of my day. Strutting his stuff back and forth between his hens and me. There where flowers galore and plenty to see around every corner. The homestead consists of eighteen buildings, including the family farmhouse with original furnishings. It was a wonderful way to spend my afternoon. For more farm photos visit my website at

My Snappin' Place

When it seems everything in your world has turned upside down, the best thing to do is grab your camera and start shooting!! That's where I found myself today.
My getaway? The banks of the beautiful Suwannee River. I can't think of a better way to right my world then by taking in the beauty of God's world. I drank in the peace & quiet and just clicked away. So when things get rough as they always do, grab your camera and go find your own snappin' place! Check out my other weekly photos at

How About a Bubble Bath!

Life is full of color if you just slow down long enough to see it! While washing some old bottles outside last week, I started to see bites of color in the water. Thousands of tiny bubbles started to form and float around. The sun was just at the right angle to highlight them. I grabbed my camera and started to frame them in the viewfinder. To my amazement, not only was the wide array of colors awesome, if you look real close you can see the reflection of our giant oak tree in the bubbles. God truly loves to create beauty all around us!

My Own Back Yard

It always amazes me the beauty you can find right outside your own front door. I just got a new Canon camera and went outside to try it out. What better subject then a multi-color selection of butterflies. They where everywhere! As I was trying out the focus and zoom, I managed to snap this shot. Butterflies are truly amazing creatures. They are really worth the patience it takes to get that really great shot! Check out my other weekly shots at
