I am back! Mostly in one piece. On my way to meet my dearest friends at the cabin, I got a flat tire. Now mind you it has been snowing so pulling off to the side of the road was kind of difficult. I was on the phone to get road side service when a customer service agent for U-Haul pulled up behind me and offered to help. He had all the materials necessary to remove the tires, air the spare up, and get me back on the road. I am so thankful there are nice people left in the world.
Then on Saturday I took a hard fall on the ice while I was out this weekend. I was attempting to get a particular shot at this abandoned old school house and there was a big hill of ice. My shoes did not grab and I went down HARD! I scraped up the outsides of both of my hands, bit my lip, hit my head on the ice, thought I had broken or cracked a tooth but luckily had not.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a bit of a reputation as a klutz. Yes… I have even fallen once in front of a client. Luckily she had a great sense of humor and joked about me really getting into my work.
All that being said, it was the most amazing weekend. I think I know more about my friends than I ever thought I would. We were just like teenagers all weekend and it was an absolute blast!!! The above photo was taken early Saturday morning. I awoke to find all the girls still asleep, so I put my shoes on and went out to shoot in the early morning light (my favorite time). I love bare trees. I know many people see them as just dead trees, but I love the twists and turns of the branches, the branching out and just the tree itself. It is amazing to see the transformation from season to season. Although I love the fresh buds of spring, I think this is my all time favorite.
Anywho, I am back to work. I have got a licensing deal I am looking into for some of my fine art pieces. I have decided I am going to push myself farther and harder this year. Who knows what might come up???
