A Bit from a 2009 Sunset Abandoned Building Adventure...

This building is located in the county of Massac... 
I had the opportunity to photograph it in 2009 on the "Laidlaw Sunset Adventure".  I'll go into very little detail other than that because I don't want anyone to get in trouble...

Seniors - Thomas


I had SUCH a fantastic shoot with Thomas last week!! 

 Thomas was one of those fellas not entirely excited about having Senior portraits done, but considering it more of a necessary evil.  




Generally under these circumstances I ask that the semi-willing subject bring a couple of shirts and 60 minutes worth of 
willingness...

In my merchandise shop at Cafe Press I have created an item or two... My challenge with that is that I try to choose a fantastic landscapish scene, but I do want you to be aware that merchandise can also be created for you... i.e.  if I happened to catch a great candid of your child on their school float - I can make that into a magnet, deck of cards, java mug, etc for you, post it for you, send you the link to it in my Flawn Ocho store and you can order it right from there and have it shipped directly to yourself or someone else. Kaboom, done! And the shipping time is rather quick!

Tractors, Tractors Everywhere!


One of my favorite portions of the parades around here would have to be the parade of tractors...  These people work hard in the good, the bad and the ugly of weather to prepare their farms and plantings and harvests and whatever all it is that they have to do to get us our groceries...

Meet Carl...



I was out on the Porcho the other afternoon ... which is the patio that borders the alley... and I heard a sound that was a bit of a scratch with a chomp thrown in here and there... I looked all about and finally spotted Carl... that's what I named him, Carl the Squirrel.  



I absolutely could have appointed him something more fantastic and creative than Carl, but for some reason.. in that instant, as I retrieved my camera and stepped back out onto the Porcho - Carl seemed to fit.  He was a laid back fellow, just sitting there as Shazbot and Sha Na Na meowed at him from below... 


Now about a week later, Carl is becoming a fixture and is on the alley nearly every time I got outside.  He's been busy this week it seems running back and forth with nuts that I assume he's storing at home, wherever that is ... most likely in one of our front trees... 

I was looking for a squirrel quote to wrap this up ... but I didn't find one that tickled my fancy ... so I'll leave you with some squirrel fun facts...

  • Squirrels can jump a distance of up to 20 feet. They have long, muscular hind legs and short front legs that work together to aid in leaping.
  • Squirrels in general are found on every continent except Antarctica and Australia.
  • Squirrels can fall up to 100 feet without hurting themselves. They'll use their tail both for balance and as a parachute.
  • Squirrels eyes are positioned in such a way that they can see some things behind them.
  • The word "squirrel" means "shadow tail" in Greek.
  • An adult squirrel normally lives alone. But will, in severe cold, share its nest with other squirrels to conserve body heat. Once the temperature rises, the guests will be on their way.

Part 2 - Glimpses of my FIRST visit EVER to the St. John Church Ice Cream Social - 2013

This is Part 2 of glimpses of my first visit ever to the St. John Church Ice Cream Social... You can see Part 1 HERE...


The Ice Cream Line... which pretty much never empties, but it well worth the wait! 



Some of the amazing people responsible for pulling off this event... 


Below are some random shots I took around the gathering...




I'll take a spin through and see if I've now rounded up all of these photos... I'll either bring you the rest of these tomorrow or some other goodies from my hard drive that are waiting to be seen...

Have a grand and groovy day!

Glimpses of my FIRST visit EVER to the St. John Church Ice Cream Social - 2013



Though I was "raised in the neighborhood" and had heard of it for as long as I can remember, I had never attended the St. John's Ice Cream Social until this year.  As the date approached, I was thrilled when I learned that this was a regular thing for Evan and he was planning to attend...


This view was one I knew well due to pulling out of Jefferson School nearly four million times over the course of my life... But it was just phenomenal to see all of the traffic of those attending.

As reported by WPSD-TV, the event has taken place for 70 years
and proceeds go to benefit local families in need.

I  caught some folks sitting about visiting 
who were agreeable for a quick shot... 




This shot, I thought said so much ...
people visiting and seeing people they haven't seen in ages just as far as the eye can see ...



One of my favorite shots of the afternoon ... the official meteorologist of the Comer family and many of you, Beau Dodson and his mom, Judy.  I have known these two since before I was born and I was so happy to run into them... 

This is one of those events that you just shouldn't miss...

A "Loungy" Day and A Picture of the River...


I said to you yesterday that we might jaunt off to the First Ever Lusk Creek Cook Off and the Downtown Music and Arts Festival in Paducah... but I'm afraid we didn't feel quite that ambitious.

After lunch on the screened in patio, a couple of segments of that newish show, World's Worst Tattoo's and a bit of catching up around the house we did talk ourselves into running to Paducah on a couple of errands and I was delighted to see the sky begin to come into focus as we made our way onto the bridge...

Enjoy!

A Few Shots from the Massac County Relay for Life...


I'd love to get in the habit of slowing down a few times a week to bring you the photos I randomly catch here and there... I spent an hour or so yesterday scheduling posts for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays which include one or a few photos from a particular session... and I'm hoping to fill in the blanks with goodies caught while on road trips, events and the like... 

Part of this weekend's plan is for Evan and I to try and hit the Lower Town Arts and Music Festival in Paducah Kentucky and the First Ever Lusk Creek BBQ Cook Off... If our plan stays in place I'll be bringing you images from those in the coming week... 

Below you'll find a few shots from last night's 
Massac County Relay for Life held at Fort Massac State Park... 

A shot of the luminarias and boothery...



Mendywright and I shared an absolutely DIVINE funnel cake made by these folks... 



A shot of 'centerfield'...
