A Few Fall Family Photos

My family is very gracious to let me take so many pictures of them (like 104 in one afternoon o_O). I am looking to take more photographs of people and kids are such easy subjects, especially these three, if I do say so myself. Hopefully my paparazzi moves will capture some great memories. Thank you to my family members for letting me have a lens in their faces at all times.

Fall Photos

I haven't had much time to take pictures lately. I was able to get out this past weekend and take some snap shots. The colors this year have been awesome. Fall is my favorite season. I hope to take more before the leaves fall away.

Summer Blooms

They that have power to hurt and will do none,
That do not do the thing they most do show,
Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,
Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow;
They rightly do inherit heaven's graces
And husband nature's riches from expense;
They are the lords and owners of their faces,
Others but stewards of their excellence.
The summer's flower is to the summer sweet,
Though to itself it only live and die,
But if that flower with base infection meet,
The basest weed out-braves his dignity;

For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.
--Shakespeare, Sonnet 94

You May Take Me to the Fair

Do you recall the other night that I distinctly said you might
Serve as my escort at the next town fair?
Well, I'm afraid there's someone who I must invite in place of you
Someone who plainly is beyond compare
That Frenchman's power is more tremendous than I have e'er seen anywhere
And when a man is that tremendous
He, by right, should take me to the fair.

I do applaud your noble goals
Now let us see if you achieve them
And if you do, then you will be the three who go to the ball, to the show
And take me to the fair.
--Camelot, 1967
