Belly Dance Style with Flair!

I found this great little bottle and I ran to take it home!  I began to think of various fun uses for it.  Here are a couple of photo's I have tried with one of my belly dance friends from a photo shoot we did a while back.  I am hoping she likes it!!

August 26, 2012 - Models and beer

I was fortunate enough to be a part of the local Flash Party Crew in August.  It was held at the ranch,  we had 35 models 20+ photographers, along with make up artists and hair stylists.  While I was able to participate, my boyfriend and his buddies brewed beer.  It was quite the fun day!
Here are images for the models & others to enjoy.

It was a warm day, beautiful blue skies and an opportunity for photography and creativity.

 With any photo shoot, there is always behind the scenes fun!!

 Beer making will never be the same!

Three in one???

How about that?  From silence to something...something in the form of three entries in one day.  I suppose it would be more interesting if they were spread out.  As I sit and wait for my kind boyfriend to finish up his duties at work I found myself with a little time (*gasp*) which NEVER happens - and ended up being able to actually breathe for a minute and POST something!!  Woo!  Hoo!
For the first time in at least a year, I had an opportunity to participate with a local group and photograph some models.  I was fortunate enough to have them out on the property where I live, which was super fun.
This is one of the photo's I took.  It was after the shoot and she was talking to the other photographer, and something just made me raise my camera and hope I could catch her just the way she was...

Maybe there is hope yet...  I can't answer that right now.  But, at least I got to shoot several models, hang out with some ol' photographer buddies and take a bunch of photos.  All while my boyfriend brewed some beer with his friends.  It was a fun day!

Have you heard of this author?

If you have not heard of River Jordan, I highly recommend you head over to your local bookstore and find yourself a new read by her.  http://www.riverjordan.us/  Here is a link to her webpage, just reading her Q&A touches my heart and her blog brings me laughter. 
I hope you take a moment to discover her work!

Street Photography

I am not the most confident when it comes to street photography.  I have given this gal my full attention and respect is for this lovely individual: http://observatory.designobserver.com/accidental-mysteries-08-05-12.html Vivian Maier "
Accidental Mysteries, 08.05.12
In 2007, the discovery of an unknown street photographer by the name of Vivian Maier (1926-2009) rocked the world of art photography. While infirm and near death, the former nanny/photographer was unable to make the payments on a storage locker, and the contents sold at auction. Consequently, there were three key people who ended up with the lion’s share of the work — all of whom recognized the quality of the work right away."
Just had to share as those who enjoy art, hopefully will enjoy her images.
