My Rescue's Hero
There may not be anything special about this image photography-wise.... Or mean much to anyone. But it brings tears to my eyes every time I look at it, which brings a unique quality to the photo. This is my rescue dog's rescuer. In this shot, we went to the Morton Arboretum's, "Tails to Trails" where she had her other available dogs for adoption. She knew we were coming to visit and was excited as she had also fostered this dog and fell in love with her. It was hard for her to give her up, but knew it was best for this pup rather than live with so many other dogs. Such a sacrifice! "Lexi" didn't recognize her for almost a minute....but when she finally did, she went crazy jumping and kissing her rescuer. To this amazing woman....I said and always will say, 'THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! She's a great dog!
Flowers' last hurrah!
This sweet 5 year old starts her academic career on Monday. Where did the summer go. Most children have started school this second half of August.

One of several islands graced by Japanese garden artistry at the Chicago Botanical Gardens. I always think I want to sit and read a book here. The problem is, the scenes are so serene, I think I'd end up taking a nap! Very relaxing!
She came up the hill where we all were about to wrap things up. A long evening of sunset shooting of models dressed in '60s costume. The glow of the sunset surrounded her hair like a halo. The wind revealing her soft curls. She was a bit frazzled from a rough day at work and was late for the model shoot because of a bad accident. But she still came and she still modeled finding this the recreation she needed to end a stressful day.

Embracing The Sunset
A model at our "Woodstock Model Shoot" for the Naperville Photography Meet-Up group stages a well known pose from Woodstock. No crowds. No musicians. But a beautiful sunset certainly is worthy of such a pose.
