Hi! I have not posted a blog post in ages. Photography, 4 kids, a husband who travels, volleyball, karate, soccer, t-ball, football, basketball, dance practices, play rehearsals, and Saturdays filled with sometimes 4 games – have kept me a wee bit busy. Sometimes I would wake up at 4am just so I could complete what needed to be done that day. Covid-19 pandemic, put me out of a job (for now) and is expected to kill over 100,000 people in the USA – our family has never been more fufilled. We have family dinner every single night, that has not happened in …. ever. My husband usually travels 5 nights a week. We go on nightly walks, every night, we watch family movies, bake together, hike, I have “sparked joy” in every closet. I’m rested, I work out, every single day, I eat all homemade food – and I feel fulfilled. Note – I’m anxious as heck what’s going to happen with these disease and our country’s economic future… but for now I’m happy.
Covid-19 will be in our history books, and most certainly in business text books for generations to come. The Porch”raits” or “drive by shootings” is trending all over the country. I used a telephoto lens and I ran around my neighborhood, DC Ranch in Scottsdale Arizona. I did not give too much directions, but my neighbors ran with the idea, and I adore how they turned out. Authentic, loving, funny, in some cases a little dramatic, everything excellent photography should be, it’s should make you feel something. I requested neighbors donate to Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children, an amazing organization founded by one our neighbors.
Happy families during the Corona Virus…. DC Ranch, Scottsdale Arizona on the front porch..
I love my neighborhood! I love my neighbors!
Amazon and Netflix – I think I’m going to finish Netflix this week!
Our bikes and dogs are thanking us!
We are practicing long distance Yoga…
The relics, if I was photographing a wedding I would call this section the details… I have seen painted rocks, Picasso’s on our sidewalks and windows, motivational and religious signs hanging. Our recycle day is full of cardboard boxes from Costco – and yes of course many more glass bottles than usual 🙂
