Buffalo Boogie

Buffalo Boogie

This year was my second time running the Buffalo Boogie at the Fort Worth Nature Center. Aggie has run both races with me, and, this year, I convinced both kids to go with me, too. It was a cool, sunny morning. The race seemed a […]

I finally pulled the trigger and bought a new lens, a Nikon 50mm f/1.8. I wasn’t quite ready to spring for the f/1.4. Here are a few of my first attempts shooting at a larger aperture. Here is one of Hannah and her friend. I […]

Happy Birthday Zachary!

Happy Birthday Zachary!

It’s hard to believe my baby boy is 2 today. His birthday party was Saturday. He got cars, trains, and animals – all of his favorites. I’ll post pictures later; I haven’t transferred them from my camera, yet. So, here’s a picture of the birthday […]

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

We spent the day in De Leon. The kids had an Easter egg hunt with their cousins. This picture of all four cousins was difficult to get. They didn’t want to look at the camera at the same time.

I was sick all weekend, which led to some not so clear thinking on my part. This could be bad, because I had an economics final over the weekend; I hope my answers were coherent enough for a decent grade. I’m feeling better today, but […]
