Jacksonport State Park

Jacksonport State Park

Visit the Jacksonport State Park website for more information. Note: My husband Don and I had always planned on visiting all the state parks in Arkansas but never had a chance before he died. As a memorial to him, I’m traveling around the state to photograph each park. There are 52 state parks in Arkansas and so […]

Things Don’t Always Go As Plann...

Things Don’t Always Go As Planned

I had planned on getting up early and heading a couple of hours north of here to visit the Ozark Folk Center and photograph a few things in that area but, even though I woke up at 5am, I got lazy and decided not to go. Tomorrow is a better day anyway since the farmer’s market in Batesville […]

Small Town Downtown

Small Town Downtown

Small Town Blues As I am driving through Arkansas I am have been amazed how many small towns have been abandoned. It’s really sad to see the empty buildings, many beyond repair. I can’t help but to see the ghosts of past residents as they went about their daily business in these buildings.

Bubble, Bubble Who Has the Bubble?

Bubble, Bubble Who Has the Bubble?

You will never regret the time spent blowing bubbles I spent the afternoon making bubble liquid, blowing bubbles and playing around with the settings on my camera to photograph them. So far, the best setting combination has been around f/8, ISO 200 and shutter of 1/500. I’m going to keep trying and I’ll let you […]

Friends

Friends

One of the biggest fears I have had for my children is that they will have no friends. Luckily, they have all grown up in the same smallish-sized town and were not moved around from place to place like I was. They all have a few close friends that they have known for years. They […]
