Rambling & Thoughts

I started this blog almost 2 years ago to better myself as a photographer.  I originally named it Following my Passion but changed it after a friend of mine commented that if it was my PASSION then I should basically be living and breathing photography and continuously getting better at it. So, I changed it to FINDING my passion because I wanted to find what my true passion was. Also, to discover who I am. Isn’t that everyone’s big question, “Who am I”? 
I feel my one true passion is travel, if I could be a travel photographer that’d be awesome.  If I won the jackpot on a lottery you can bet I’d be on a plane on an around the world trip asap!
I’ve had a number of people say I should really start my own photography business. I am too scared to take the dive. I feel I have things to learn and figure out, although maybe I’m just making excuses, like always. In the meantime, I shall continue what I am doing and I will take on photo-shoots as they arrive.
I had a thought to branch out to other topics on my blog besides photography. Such as, parenting, fitness, health, ramblings about life or any other things that cross my crazy mind.  And I’d have some contributors.
Not sure if anyone would even be interested, so I thought I’d ask my readers and do a poll!   
You can find the poll at the top right side of the page.

Crisp, Fall Morning


"Everyone must take time to sit & watch the leaves turn." 
                                               -Elizabeth Lawrence 

I do enjoy Fall, I love the beautiful colors the trees change to the most. Daily in the Fall I get to see this beautiful sight out my kitchen window when the sun rises.  I snuck outside on Saturday morning to take a few pictures in the crisp air. It was a chilly low 30 or high 20 something,  with heavy frost but that didn't stop me from getting on the ground to get some of the shots. 
I like Fall, just not what I know is around the corner! 
What is your favorite season?

Autumn in Jim Falls, WI

A few weeks back we took a ride to Brunet Island State Park. To get there you go through  a little town called Jim Falls.
The drive was a much needed and this beautiful location was my favorite part.

Ontonagon, MI Labor Day Classic Car Show 2014

I don't like to fall too behind on putting recent/relevant pictures on my blog but I recently made time to go through ones from the end of summer. Here are some from the Classic car show in Ontonagon, MI for the Labor Day festivities. Last year I didn't have a chance to take any pictures of the show so I really wanted to get some this year. I am not a huge car fanatic by any means but I do find some cars nicer than others and I think looking at old cars is fun.

Cyrus; 3 Month Photos

Things are different with a second child, perhaps not as many milestones are written down,  not as many pictures during pregnancy, birth, after birth, etc are taken.
This time around, with Cyrus, I want to take more "professional" photos. I didn't do it with my 1st, mainly because I didn't get into taking photos till he was about 6 months and I  was too cheap to pay someone to do it professionally :-P !
I took these photos yesterday, it was  a chilly, drizzly day.

Cyrus 
Age: 3 Months 






Some brother pictures, I can't wait to see how their relationship unfolds. I can tell Cyrus already loves his big brother, he always looks for him if he hears him talking.








Mushrooms on Logs

I've always found mushrooms growing on logs neat. I think it is because when I was little my mom would find huge mushrooms that she could paint or draw on. I remember her collecting them, and she may have  ever only drawn on one of them though, but I thought it was the coolest thing ever. So whenever I see giant tree mushrooms in the woods I think of her.

Old Trucks

My dad has a lot of random things laying around his property and these are just some of the old items he has.
Over the Summer, I loved being able to share time with my son in the place that I grew up, letting him explore just like I did when I was little.
