My Wife's Got Skills

This is my daughter wearing a sweater crafted by my wife +Kathi Bonham.  It was a labor of love (with little moments of hate frustration: I know because I witnessed them).  But from knit to purl she stuck with it and it turned out beautiful.  The design was inspired by Harry Potter, thus the owl pattern on the back.  I'm super proud of her for sticking with it and getting it done.

And the sweater is as beautiful as the girl wearing it!

Water Painting

Sometimes it's the simple things that give me pleasure.  Like sitting in my garage today brewing beer while smoking a nice cigar and watching Game of Thrones.   No interruptions, no meetings to attend, no taxi duties for the kids, and no one calling my name wanting something.  Yes, that is a pretty good day.  I felt as chill as these rocks just hanging out as the world hurries passed them.

Tulips From Above

This morning I drove out to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm for a sunrise shoot with +Sheilia Millier.  The sunrise didn't have much color but the sun did shine after appearing over the cloud bank that blocked the sunrise color.  After we wandered the fields for a time I got out my +DJI Innovations Phantom 2 with +GoPro attached and flew it above the fields to get a a birds eye view of the farm.

With a little crop and a touch of love in Lightroom here's a still from from the video I captured.

Rock On

So I discovered that one of my coworkers makes custom guitars as a hobby.  A little chit-chat about it and I got one in my hands to play with.  This is one of his first and I believe his favorite.  I couldn't resist the burled wood and beautiful craftsmanship.  Outside of the metal hardware and  pickups all of this guitar is his handy work.  

Back in the day I dreamed of being a guitarist in a band.  I practiced and played a bit but never quite got good enough to hit the bigs.  I play a mad G,C, D progression.  I still tinker a little with a $50 Fender I bought back in college but mostly spend my free time on the photography fun.

I set up my ultra professional, big expense studio in my living room today and shot a few pics of this finely crafted instrument.  And one of me playing it for good measure.

Path to the Giants

The rain may have chased us from our campsite but it didn't stop us from exploring the Stout Grove.  You can't tell from the photo but the rain was coming down in buckets.  This is one of those times I was glad that the D300s has weather sealing.

We hiked around for over an hour just taking in the grandeur of these magnificent trees.  We came across one that had fallen recently and my bet is that it make quite the sound when it came down.  It had to be more than 8' in diameter.  

I'm already trying to find a time to get back down here.  Maybe it'll happen this summer when the footbridge over the Smith River is in place.

What Can I Say

I've been working on a photography project for the last two weeks that involves flowers (yes flowers) and I've had a few laying around the house.  Tonight I took a few shots with my iPhone, totally unrelated to the other project, and started playing with G+'s editing tools.  Here is one of the shots I was toying with.  I have to say, totally impressed with what you can do with a phone and +Google+'s editing toys.  

BTW , I hope to share the flower project soon.  So far there's been a ton of failure but progress is being made.

Oh man, looks like someone's been busy since last tulip season.  There's a baby tractor at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm.
