BA Foxfire+++//

Last night my sister, Stacey, and I got her retired mare Foxfire out for a shoot at sunset. Foxy already has a lot of her winter coat, so we just wanted to play with light and get some artsy shots that didn't draw attention to the fact she's really fuzzy! Here's some of our results. As usual...a ton of fun!

Airline History Museum Fall Hangar Dance

The catch-up continues. The Airline History Museum held their fall hangar dance on October 11th. This dance was roughly double the size of the spring dance! It is getting wildly popular, and I can't get over how many people get totally into the evening and dress up in 1940s/WWII-era regalia.

Here are some highlights!

can you believe this great couple is in their 90s?

Blakesburg, Iowa Antique Fly-In

Jim and I made the trip up to Blakesburg, Iowa Labor Day weekend (told you I was behind!) with the 1947 Cessna 120 to the annual National Antique Aircraft Association Fly-In. This is the largest fly-in of its kind and well over 300 aircraft from all over the nation were in attendance. This was an aviation photographer's dream. Some of these planes are so rare there are only a handful still flying. Rather than trying to come up with words to describe the event, I'll let the pictures below tell the story. Jim and I pitched a tent and stayed one night....plan is to stay for two next year.

Long Hiatus

I have let my blog go. I have SO MUCH to share with you all. In the coming days, I'll get up some shots from the following:

Greater Kansas City Arabian Horse Association Pony Express Show
Kansas City Regional Foxtrotting Horse Association Pony Express Show
Antique Aircraft Association National Fly-In
Airline History Museum Fall Hangar Dance
...and some photos from my vacation to Washington, DC!

I've got a few shoots coming up as well so now that life has slowed a bit for me, I'll have some time to share what I've been working on, and update the galleries on my website as well. They are long overdue for it, in all categories!

Hang tight!
