The Mack! The girly who has been photographed more than any other child in the county, quite possibly the state, she, who kicked my photography into a whole new world, and has been my muse from the moment I laid eyes on her, is now seven.
In true Mack fashion, she kept putting off her photo shoot, but once we got there, she kept me and her mom in stitches, the kid is pretty hilarious. Which lead to the last shot, she tried to pretend she was mad at me, but I know she secretly loved it, because she asked how many likes it had.
Congratulations to the wonderful, 2016 graduates, that I had the pleasure to work with this year.
Last week was the Biggest Week in American Birding, which meant I was out, trying to get decent shots of those oh so beautiful, but speedy warblers. Around this time each year, the warblers, and other birds, make a stopover at Magee Marsh to refuel and get some much needed rest, before they fly across the lake, to their summer homes. These birds are a challenge to get good pictures of because they are very small, very fast, and they don’t stop moving, but…they are gorgeous, which is why, thousands of people show up on the Magee Marsh boardwalk, to get a glimpse of these amazing little creatures. We saw license plates from as far away as Alaska and almost every state as well, not to mention the people who come from other countries. If you like birds, you should go, at least once, unless you hate crowds….then this isn’t the place for you.
I had a great week, met some super nice and helpful people, and got lots of pics, so I’m gonna make this a 2 parter.
