5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


I made a commitment this week to getting up early and capturing the morning "golden hour". Monday was spectacular, Tuesday was good, Wednesday was gray, cloudy and windy, Thursday it was raining. But Monday made the whole week worth while!

Find No. 2


You just can't go wrong with blues, browns and greens.

Find No. 3


It is good to not plan your menu for the week and buy too many groceries. You just never know when your refrigerate is going to crap out on you. Less is more is my new philosophy.

Find No. 4


I have a lovable new photography assistant. He works cheap, just for dog biscuits. One little problem with him, he has a tendency to eat the photography props.

Find No. 5


Cranberries make wonderful photography props, as long as your assistant doesn't eat them.

  27. Lovely photos and lovely pup. There is a visitor next door and they brought their golden with them, but this golden seems to have missed the boat on the golden personality and seems to hate everyone. Weird.

  31. Thank God and Dave for a house generator; I live too far from a grocery store to jump in the car and drive across two mountains, especially in a snow storm. Your first 2 photos are absolutely amazing...very well done. visiting via A Rural Journal.
