Friday Fotos (And More!)

I took my big camera out yesterday for realzies after six-ish months...there was some fumbling and I missed some shots, but I didn't do too badly, thankyouverymuch!

Mama Tory and Baby Flynn watching D with the Scary Flag of DOOM.
Bad photograph, but LOOK AT THAT RUNNING WALK GUISE
"Don't you DARE wave that flag at me, ya hear?"
This is why we call him Fabio.
Perri's kicked ASS with this halter. Love it!
My first ever Photoshop attempt...removed the fence (mostly successful) and the halter (mildly successful; definitely have work to do there). I am kicking myself for not attempting Photoshop stuff earlier...picture looks so much better without the fence!
K removed the fence for me in this one, which is what kicked my ass into gear and I started watching some YouTube videos last night. Zoooooooms!
This was our entertainment last night, so I didn't torment him with actually riding. Once they were done running around, however, I did a TINY bit of liberty work in the paddock. I have zero proof because I, stupidly, chose to do this just as D was going inside to set up grain, but it was just very soft walk-halt-turn-face me stuff in the paddock. He kept one ear on me at all times and kept himself in a respectful circle around me. By the end of it, I had him "hooked on" and he was with me for a solid five minutes before I purposely released him from me. Then I stood there giving him scratchies...and found two ticks on his chest.

*high pitched keening nose* NoooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo!

I hate ticks. Haaaaate. I yanked one off of myself in early April but figured it was just a fluke...with the winter we had, there's NO way that ticks could be out yet. Well, they are. Goddamnit! Next week-ish will be spring shot time, and D and I plan to grill Dr. McGee about the lyme vaccine.

Work is slow as all get out today so I've been blessed with a half day. Oh Simba...time for woooorkkk!

Happy Friday, ya'll!

  1. These pictures are awesome! I never use Photoshop but should probably try it one day. I'm a take a picture as is... Probably because I'm lazy but I get pretty lucky sometimes. I guess it's that 35mm girl in me. :)

    1. I'm usually like that too, and have zero interest in real photomanipulation projects...but little things like taking out the fence? That made a HUGE difference in the way the image was viewed. Can't always help what background you're shooting against, that's for sure! Do you have a 35mm?
