Winter Waterfall

Yesterday was a great day out exploring and shooting for fun with my dear friend Kim. We headed to Joplin to check out Grand Falls, which is on Shoal Creek. It is a beautiful location, which was turned into a winter wonderland.

Keep them. Share them. Protect them.

"She glances at the photo, and the pilot light of memory flickers in her eyes." {Frank DeFord}

That is my favorite photography quote, because I feel that's exactly what happens. One look at a photo can take us right back to the very moment it was snapped or allow us to imagine what it was like to be there. Photographs tell us a story. They inspire us. They bring beauty to our homes and our lives. They keep our memories alive.

This video does a beautiful job of describing exactly that. It is sponsored by Kodak, and is about 5 minutes long, but it is well worth the time to watch it. It made me smile, it gave me chills and it brought a tear to my eye. I hope you will enjoy it as well. Please feel free to share your reaction in a comment.

The Blizzard of 2011

I thought I'd share these here for all my non-facebook family and friends...especially the ones in sunny Florida...where it is 69 degrees right now. Yep. I checked. That is 58 degrees warmer than it is here at this moment. Hard to believe, isn't it?
