Beavers, Goats, and Guard Dogs

Just another 'ol day in Mississippi!! And this, my friends, is why I love the South!! ha! Where else could you wake up for an early morning drive and find a beaver, billy goats, a pack of wild dogs, and two Baptist churches....all within a vicinity of 2 miles, and over a 30 minute span of time? This was certainly an adventurous morning. A beaver crossing the road?! Perhaps they have a shortage of chickens in Batesville. I don't know. What I do know is that I ordered an immediate U-turn and then jumped out of the car to catch a few shots of my little friend. He was actually very cute. A little further down the road we passed a home that had a few hundred billy goats for pets. However, I'm not sure that the goats provide quite the protection that their neighbor's pets do. By pets, I do mean wild guard dogs who apparently have no tolerance for visitors. I realize that some people have the land to provide a good home to 6+ dogs. What I didn't realize was that these dogs don't like cameras...and if you roll your window down to take a picture of these "pets" they will go straight through your window and for your face. "MY WINDOW'S DOOOOOWWNNN!!!!!!" This is something like what I screamed upon attack. ha ha. It provided a good laugh...but only after we succesfully drove away before anything too serious occured.

Merry Texas Christmas Y'all!...from California, Florida, and Tennessee...

Texas, Tennessee, Florida, and most recently California. If there were a color-by-number map of my heart, most certainly some of the largest parts on the map would be in the shapes of these four great states. For me, home is where the family is. And this Christmas, this girl is going home! I'm so happy that I'll be getting to spend at least some time with most of the family this month. I've somehow managed to strategically place myself in each of these four states throughout the one month of December. Flights and drives from California to Florida to Tennessee....and one overnight layover in my hometown of Houston. And most of the trip was booked with airline miles! ha! Looks like dreams are coming true this Christmas....to be fully complete upon eating my first Krystal burger!! Whoo hoo!! Hey now....easy...they're fabulous, and you know it. :)

Speaking of dreams coming true--welcome to the blog of e3 photography! These past few years have been....hmmmm.....indescribable. What I CAN tell you is that I have more things to be thankful for than I ever fathomed possible. Through this blog, I hope to share with you the thing that is coloring yet another piece of my heart...photography. I'll be sharing with you some of the work I have done over the past few years, along with current work as it comes along. I'm excited to share it. So thank you for being a part of the many reasons my heart yields color...Merry Christmas!!


ps...there will always be trials woven amongst the blessings...although able to use frequent flyer miles, I still had to pay that $15 luggage fee. :)
