Northern Mockingbird

Northern Mockingbird

A Northern Mockingbird has been terrorizing our yard for the past few days. In the two years that we have been in our home this is the first time I remember seeing one. It’s quite aggressive, and it spends a majority of it’s time squawking at us while perched in the trees that surround our backyard.

Victoria's Bridal Shower

This past weekend our families held Victoria's bridal shower at her sister's house down the street. All of the men came over our house and I spent a majority of the day sitting on the deck or enjoying the beautiful weather on the dock. At one point we made our way down to the dam to partake in some evening bass fishing. It was one of the more memorable days of this spring so far. I'm sure there will be many more as we make our way in to summer.

When the weekends roll around I try to do my best to keep my phone in the office and enjoy our surroundings. Despite having a digital camera by my side, lately I find myself being drawn to more analog experiences. In a world dominated by algorithms, artificial intelligence, and endless scrolling. Days like this remind me that nature is the great entertainer.

A Warm Saturday Evening

I made the decision yesterday morning to keep my camera by my side at all times throughout the day. My personal photographic output had decreased over the past few months so I was looking for something to jumpstart my creativity. To sum it up, the idea was a great success. I was able to capture a handful of images that I am truly proud of. Below is a sample of some of the photographs I made as the sun was setting on the lake. Some family had come over for the evening and paired them with some golden hour light. Enjoy.
