Not long ago, I won some annual passes to Sea World in a local auction. We hadn't been to Sea World in years.
We had a great day there recently!
The dolphins were a lot of fun! They were circling around - splashing and playing - while they were waiting to be fed.
I was pretty happy with some of the photos I got.
We laughed as we watched them play!
And, they had a little competition for the fish the trainers were throwing out over the water.
Then we went inside to the lower level where we could see the dolphin swimming.
I don't really have a clue how to take underwater shots, these were the best of what I took.
Next, we headed over to the sea lion tank. This was the coolest bird! And I have no idea what kind he is, except fluffy and pretty!
The sea lions weren't exactly happy with the birds getting part of their fish the crowd was feeding to them - hahaha!
I never realized how loud sea lions could be! Unbelievable!
Then there was this little guy - sitting there all alone - waiting - and waiting!
This is a close-up of the water in the photo above. I loved the way the sun was shining on the water -
making little starlight points in the sparkles! More photos to come soon from our day at Sea World :).

Recently, Kali and I went on a road trip to visit some friends and shoot senior pictures for some that were graduating.
I always wanted to shoot some railroad track shots - and I got my chance!
We met this young lady through NCFCA, where Kali competed in speech and debate. Her entire family is involved with NCFCA.
We had a great time visiting! I'll probably post other sets of pictures from this day later on.
She's even traveled with me a couple times to attend communications conferences where Kali was teaching.
She is lovely young lady of God - with a heart for people. And - she has a great sense of humour!
Here is a link to a duo interpretation she and her partner took all the way to national competition -
Cinderella and the Seven Dwarfs - enjoy!

Want to make a desktop collage to run as your computer wallpaper, but don't know how?
Recently, I received a newsletter from Scrap Girls which gave simple step-by-step instructions to making a desktop collage.
I used photos from a family photo shoot and compiled this collage. Nothing fancy, nothing hard to do.
Just an opportunity to give this family something beautiful to look at every time they sit down at their computer.
For myself, I used photos I had taken at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando.
