in photos: the last few days

I have loads of favorite photos from *last* summer that I never posted, but anyway.  A few favorites from today and the last few days.  I may never catch up on this blog, but for now I'll keep at it.  I may have time to write again, I may not.  Right now, I am experimenting and honing some photography skills and it feels SO good.  Beginning with today and going backwards in time:

:: Like our dog, she plays in the sun-spot.
Or, like me, she is searching for the light.

 :: Tonight we sat on our property fence and watched an air show.  Hazel always has something on her skin; she says it makes her beautiful.  Facepaint, tattoo, markers, pb&j...always something.  Today, appropriately enough, she had two (smudged) rainbows on each cheek.  Love wins.
:: Picking rhubarb and planting raspberries in the garden.


:: Playing with the half-grown chicks.  (Oh, man, I haven't even posted on playing with the baby chicks!)  Juniper is a wild, high-energy kid.  But you would never know it, watching her handle the chicks.  



:: Hazel is mostly mellow, but you have to watch her.  She may try to put a chick on her head.  


:: Summer solstice found me chasing butterflies and fairies in the field.  





:: On this morning, I happen to catch Juniper dressed up as a queen and taking care of her little princess.  
:: Note the tattoo.  
:: Friends playing on the porch: 3 girls and a boy.  
:: Hazel's magnificent morning halo.  
:: Sister love.  
 :: Juniper has a super sensitive scalp.  She doesn't want a haircut, but doesn't like me messing with her hair much.  So this is constant, Juniper holding her hair away from her face.
Until next time, 'night.

  1. Your photography skills have taken a huge jump because each and EVERY image is stunning. My favorite, still, is Hazel's bed head. Reminds me to pick up my camera in the day-to-day of it all.

  3. These are so beautiful, you are a great photographer! We might have to pack up and come your way in the fall for a family photo session :)
    I gave up on "writing" on my blog long ago--I just use it as a way to share my photos with fam/friends now, but I *wish* I had the time management and talent to write like other bloggers do. Maybe someday...
