{inspiration} family night out...

It's that time again - the tulip fields are starting to bloom & our rubber boots are out.  Like every year, one of the local bulb farms has what they call "locals night" where they let those of us that live in the area into the fields to ride the tractors, play in the mud, take tons of photos, & enjoy the fields before tourists come in bus loads. It's a family tradition to attend & Sayer has been to this event ever since he was born.  Today was cloudy & raining all day, but the sun came out just in time. The light & color was perfect.  We have family visiting from Boston so we had a chance to show off our beautiful surroundings tonight. Sayer was particularly interested in the puddles & his reflection. However, his last jump landed him bum down in the mud so.... it was time to go home. It was a fun evening. How's your week going?

{Photo Inspiration} Robert Doisneau...

I just noticed the Google Doodle tonight & it caused me to spend some time looking through a lot of Robert Doisneau photographs. I learned about his legendary contribution to photojournalism in college (in a history of photography class) & had "the kiss" poster/print in my first dorm room. I've always enjoyed his photos & wanted to share. Happy 100th birthday Robert Doisneau! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
