This summer I have been working as a nanny for three precious kiddos. I wanted to have them make something for father’s day (this post is quite late, I know) that would be something at least slightly useful, as well as meaningful to their dad. He works at a nursery, so after much thought I decided to have them decorate some planters. I found a white, triple herb planter at Target, and then bought some permanent markers and let the kids loose! I helped them plant some red petunias once they were done drawing, and then after they watered the plants we sat back and admired their work (for 5 seconds before something else caught their attention).
A couple of weeks ago I went home with Scott (the boyfriend) to meet his parents for the first time. His parents have a big, beautiful farm in central Kansas, and even though we have been there a few times now I still haven’t even scratched the surface of what I would like to photograph there. Here is a small sampling of images that I shot over the past few visits.
They are surrounded by seemingly endless, gorgeous wheat fields. I have a small obsession with them I have realized. In the spring they are a stunning green, and then come summer they turn an amazingly rich gold. The texture is awesome for photographs, and watching as well as listening to a wheat field in the wind has to be one of the best things ever.
They have lots of animals on their farm, though I haven’t photographed most of them. This cat is absolutely precious, though extremely sick. She has taken a liking to me, and the last time I was there did her best to follow me around as I was shooting.
Last weekend while we were there for a short visit I was able to shoot a self-portrait that I am quite excited about. I am currently in the process of editing that, and when I get it done I will post it here, so be sure to check back!
I have a huge backlog of photographs sitting on my hard drive that I need to post. Since I have today off I figured it would be good to start catching up some. Brace yourself for completely random, unrelated images that span all the way back to April…
And expect a few more blog posts (with a little more cohesiveness to them) later today!
I have been super busy lately and haven’t shared any of the images from my recipe challenge here, let alone anything else. So, it is time to catch up. First up, is the week one recipe I made. My sister and I had chosen rhubarb, so I made a Rhubarb Eton Mess (a traditional English dessert). Be sure to check out the full post here. Kari (the sister) made a rustic rhubarb tart that you can check out here.
