This is my DH (dear husband) preparing to gather the cattle in Armstrong Pasture. I could take pictures of this man forever! Sigh! Even after 20 years of marriage, he still makes my heart melt. I am so blessed.This is our son. He's not too fond of the pre-dawn hours. He's got this amazing sense of humor ~ it just isn't apparent at 5:00 in the morning. He's growing up way too fast!
This is DD (dear daughter) heading out to gather the cattle from the north end of the pasture. Something about this picture just spoke to me. I know I did not follow the rule of thirds that is practically a commandment in photography circles but I loved the vastness of both the sky and the waving grass in the pasture. My daughter looks small in this picture and it gave me a moment to reflect upon the fact that it won't be long before she tackles the immense world that awaits her. Its almost symbolic in that she seems to be caught between two places ~ her idyllic childhood and her bright future. I miss the mountains of West Texas with all my heart and it has taken me a long time to acclimate to this flat land ~ I see beauty in both my daughter and the land in this photo.
And here's one of my DH. Did I mention that he makes my heart melt? :D
