Portraits at Play

On Thursday it was a chilly, breezy day at Stephens Lake in Columbia, Missouri. The Tran kids came ready to play in the recently fallen leaves and climb in trees and swing on swings and dance around and enjoy each other. I LOVED photographing the three of them and capturing each of their own unique personalities. At the end of our time together I realized that I never want to stop playing in the park.

    Ashley - I love looking at these cute kids! They are truly enjoying life and you captured it. Even though I was there, you still surprise me with all the little details that I didn’t notice at the time. Great work!ReplyCancel

    http://www./ - I was on a big historical fiction kick earlier this year and found several books that I am now totally obsessed with:Rules of Civility by Amor TowlesThe Paris Wife by Paula McClainAlso, not historical but insanely good (warning: you will cry): The Fault in Our Stars by John Green Those three are, hands down, my favorite books of the year (and as an editor, I read a lot of them). They would also all lend themselves quite well to group discussion.ReplyCancel

    http://www./ - “A more effective, lower cost way to control forest pests in the long term is through biological control…”Such controls are now used to control everything from the looper moth (a forestry pest) to gorse. By the way – according to Maf 80% of PAM finds in West Auckland were on wattles. Not surprising as in Australia, where it’s a native, it is known as the “wattle moth”. They don’t consider it a pest there.ReplyCancel
