I can't believe we missed September! Oh well my goal was 12 months straight and we did 16 months so I guess that's not to bad. BUt I did want to get a picture of Steven swimming in October. He swam part way down one way and back and said "that's it!, it's to cold."
Maybe I can get him to do it again in November?

He's just so beautiful I can't help myself. Believe it or not, when I unzipped the light stand bag, he got excited. I wonder if that means he knows I am going to take his picture and he likes it? Or am I randomly connecting two separate and unrelated events?

It's been a long time since I have felt like having my camera on me. As one could easily tell by the large amount of protest pictures I've posted. A picture of a picture, fair but as a friend reminded me kind of cheating.
These aren't great but at least I took them today. I am also attending the Modesto Art walk today as I have three images of Covey, my old blind horse hanging at the Mistlin Gallery. They are part of the third annual photography and poetry show.

I did say I wouldn't photograph Disney for awhile but I wanted to try and get a good picture. So far I have only taken casual pictures in natural light, and today thought maybe I could use the flash with him. I feel as if we know each other well enough that I could use the flash. Turns out he was fine with it and even seemed a little curious. Now when I take pictures he stays where I put him as if he knows the camera is clicking. I do believe he is a smart little guy.
I also think I am going to take many pictures of him as Half Moon conures are considered to be one of the plainest looking of conures. I disagree as their stunning greens and blues go marvelously with the little orange front.

No self respecting photographer would ever put a picture like this up for the world to see, but I am not self respecting. I remember thinking when I was taking this image... why, why, why, yet I couldn't stop myself. I loved the black and white appearance created by the protesters walking into, and the asphalt glistening, in the light of the setting sun.
I admit this is probably the worst protest picture ever.

Wow fifty posts of protest pictures! And I still haven't even found my favorite one.
This was the first time I saw this guy and I wondered what his face looked like. In later protests I saw him again with his clothes on and his face showing.
