Just Before the Crash

End of a long day

End of a long day

Children are awesome! We can learn much  from them if we take the time to observe and remain teachable. But, that’s for some other post. Anyway, I came across this image while looking for another image. This little gal and her mother were enjoying some together time at a local coffeehouse. Not sure but it seems to me like her very full day is about to hit a wall, sugar and all. Her mom allowed me to take this image just before the crash. Hope you have a great day.

Grandma’s Hand

I watched as grandma and grandpa kept an eye on this young child. They wanted to make sure he was safe. He was checking everything out as you can see in his eyes. I am making the assumption that he was with grandparents. It’s works for this image. Have a wonderful weekend and keep checking out all the world around you.

Family, BBQ and Sunset

A little dirt and watermelon juice make for a happy boy.

A little dirt and watermelon juice make for a happy boy.

This past Saturday afternoon I went to a BBQ at my oldest daughters home. They grilled up some elk burgers and brats. 🙂 Games were played, children and puppy dogs ran all over the place and lots of laughter was heard.

Even a swimming pool to enjoy.

There was not a clean child around.

Chris and Cody supplied the meat while everyone else was asked to bring a side dish. Well that meant there were too many salads and deserts to fit on one plate so multiple trips to the table were needed. I found this young girl exploring all of the back yard, walking stick in hand.

Front Range Sunset

As the sun went down I stood along the fence in their backyard with camera in hand and watched the colors. Nature was magically making  art and I had a great front row seat.

A Window Smile

Smiling at the world

Smiling at the world

As I walked out of a local coffee house I noticed this little one standing at the window checking out the world as it went by. I loved the smile and exchanged waves. I then had to compose and shoot two images. After taking the photo I notice her mother inside the store, vacuuming. I motioned to the mother who opened the door so I could ask if it was okay. Our world needs more smiles.

Street Concert

I came across this mother and her son sitting at one of the pianos in Old Town Fort Collins. He was so focused on ticking the ivory and both were singing away. She is holding Winnie the Pooh and has a second baby strapped to her chest. Let me tell you it was a very entertaining concert. Loved it! I was not familiar with any of their songs but probably will find them on their soon to be released CD.
