Of course there was cake and ice cream.

Life Imitating Art
Sometimes you just have to engage the art. The sculpture on the left is part of an exhibit at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. We were there last week photographing the middle grand daughter and her friends for prom. Well, I saw this piece, and the youngest grand daughter was more than willing to pose. They really do have similar expressions.

Yes, when you put her in 4" heels, she is over six feet tall.
Crystal Bridges has multiple locations on the site for great photo backgrounds. This LOVE sculpture is one of the most popular settings.
And the vintage twist on the image turns back time. I do like playing with the filters in PhotoShop Elements. I have two sets that are free on the net. NIK collection and ON1 Effects. You can Google them and add them to your workflow.
Yep, she's just as elegant in black and white as she is in color. She is a junior so we have one more homecoming and prom to photograph next year and then it's off to college. Where does the time go? Have a blessed day.

Just in case you were wondering, soccer is a contact sport. This little exchange of hips and elbows resulted in a yellow card on No. 21 in white. No. 4 in black wound up with a bruised hip from the resulting fall and a little "turf rash" from the artificial surface.

The Boys of Summer
Temperatures are warming up, spring is in the air and baseball in on everyone's mind. Saturday the grand son played a game at one of the local parks. He's thirteen now, so it's not really "Little League" anymore. You get a reality check when you walk past the dugout and half of the players are bigger than their parents. They really do look like young men playing a boys game.
It was a good day for the home team and the grand son. He got two hits, drove in two runs and scored two runs in a 13-9 victory. I don't know what I'm going to do when all of the grandcrew graduate high school and there are no more games for me to watch. Just enjoying the moment.
