Honor, Valor and Remembering

Just think next year will be a decade since the attack on our country.  The Twin Towers have been gone for nine years now and New York City, as well as our country, has never been the same since.  We should always honor those who lost their lives in the tragedy that we all know as 9/11.  We should never let the valor of the individuals, fireman, police officers and EMT medics go unnoticed, especially the ones who lost their lives trying to save others.  I have taken a moment of silence to remember them.  Have you?  My thoughts are with their families today and I hope that they moving forward with their lives in a way that would only make their loved ones proud.  I hope that they are surviving strongly and I wish them the absolute best, especially on this day.

Bill Cosby once said, “Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers.  And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.”

Oh how I love sunsets!

I love sunsets, like seriously I have stood knee deep in the Florida waters to capture a beautiful sunset with my Canon!!!  That should let you know how serious I am about them!!! I am a sunset chaser! 😉

With that in mind, evening sessions this summer have been my fav!!  If a breeze came through more often it would be awesome!  I captured a few shots of Katriana & Alex a few weeks back and it was a hot and humid day but the light was amazing. I was sweating bullets [probably from all the water I had drank–I drink more than a gallon before 3:00 p.m.] but it was well worth it to capture that light and those images!  Alex ended up “scavenger hunting” and picked up a stick with ants on it…needless to say he was not 100% smiles after that.  He enjoyed being outside and just playing with nature. 🙂  I was able to snag some really great shots and I could not be more pleased with how they turned out.  I especially love this photo of Alex because he deliberately has his back to me while laughing–that kid!! He is his mother’s son…and his father’s too!!  😉  We called it a wrap when a June Bug crawled up onto his neck.  His reaction was priceless!  Katriana you are beautiful and the light absolutely loved you!

Happy Friday the 13th! 😉

He gets it from his mama!“If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.” {Gilbert K. Chesterton}
