Brandy Day252: Ed (Not The Horse)

IMG_3231

What a beautiful start to the day!!  Watched the sun rise with this beefcake until Ed crashed our party.  Ed is the property owner who wasn’t a fan of me parking in the lane and asked that I park on the side of the road if I were to continue taking photos of his horses…and made certain that I knew NOT to feed them.  What?!?!  Is this the zoo?  I don’t carry horse treats in my truck, only dog bones.  I explained I was a photographer and his horses and property looked stunning against the colors and fog.  I politely apologized to grouchy Ed and requested he have a great day!  I got the shots I needed as the sun was rising above the fog, got my things around and headed back home.  My hope is that Ed looked at the morning differently and indeed had a better day!

Brandy Day237: Puppy Persistence

Oliver thought I should wake up at 6am today. I thought Oliver was crazy and with his persistence I was up and putting shoes on at 630. I was out the door, driving in the warm morning air. The sky started to lighten and the fog that had set in hours before, began to lift from its short slumber.  The country promised such soft contrast.
Thank you for your puppy persistence Oliver, sunrise was stunning.

Brandy Day227: Fast & Furious

Fortune doesn’t favor those who play it safe. It favors the brave. Risk everything.
‘Like the others say, I could know your pain, but I couldn’t get used to it.’  In the end all the pain will mirror happiness and you will understand why you walked the path you had to, to get to where you are. Don’t let fear determine your future.
Nick, my brother & best friend, to say he gets me would be an understatement. I’d be lost without this kid. He’s walked my path, by my side, sometimes dragging me along the way. Tonight we hit the road & headed south. Speed, music, windows down & country air. It’s what every polluted soul needs.
Thanks for being my best friend, my inspiration.
“Thank you for listening…”
