Sarah Palin

Ok, I'm a little bit of a political nut.  I love presidential election years, I get wrapped in the ups and downs, the victories and defeats, the funny moments, and the brilliant ones.  In 2008 I loved Sarah Palin, her wit, common sense, faith, and the deep American spirit that shines through her.  I had way more fun watching the vise president debates than the presidential ones. 

   So... I was THRILLED when I got to meet her at a rally!!!!  She's like how she is on TV, personable and totally on your level.  Here are some pic's I took of this amazing American.

The most amazing shoes and nails I tell ya.

Crazy HDR

I've been playing more with my HDR program with overlaying pictures that are not the same.  There have been some pretty crazy ones, but at the same time, pretty cool.

Shallow Depth of Field and B & W

I read if you use a large aperture, while getting very close to your subject, you get a VERY shallow depth of field.  So I decided to try it and it worked out well!

Tried playing with a little HDR.  Not perfect, but something a little different. ; )

Rodeo Action... Cass County Fair

Bull and bronc riding are totally my favorite sports, not football, soccer, basketball or baseball (yick... so boring!).   I was thrilled to go to the Cass County Fair rodeo and to be able to capture some fun shots.  The lighting was pretty terrible so for the bull riding, I basically had to have my ISO all the way up.  They turned out a little grainy but I still like them.

Yipes!!! All I have to say... YIPES!!!

This cowboy had a pretty straight ride, he had one of the best times.

 Right before this the cowboy had his face smashed against the bull's head.... yipes!  Good thing he had a helmet and mask on!
