Kid at Heart

On June 24, 2010, in Farm Animals, Horses, Pigs, by brendajohima

I’ll always be a kid at heart, and I think it’s the most FUN way to live, that’s for sure. As a result, I often find myself in places like Tiger Lily Farm in Errington, on Vancouver Island, with children and their Mom’s and the farm animals … I seem to be the only one there without a kid (by choice) … I just wonder why more folks like me don’t just do the same.

Anyway, on this day, my mission was simple … photography. I actually had the place to myself, just me and the farm and the owners and folks who work there. I liked it.

Here’s a couple of photos from that day. I don’t often title my pieces, but to me, this cute adorable little piggie was having a lovely nap until I showed up with my camera, and seems to be saying “What Did You Wake Me Up For?” … so that, is the title of this first photograph.

So next time you’re looking for something fun to do, head on out with camera in hand to a childrens petting zoo, or working farm, or hands on farm for kids. It’s a blast … Whether you have your own Kid or No Kid, Just Be One Yourself!

Some of my best photographs have been taken while driving down the road towards a destination, seeing something interesting out in a field, and then pulling over to the side of the road, grabbing the camera, hopping out of the car, and then having a really great travel experience moment. It’s the moments that matter.

I LOVE the spontaneity of vacations and travel photography, and some of the best vacation photographs are taken not once you arrive at the destination, but on the journey. Just like life?

And about this image? Well, horses are curious. That is one of the things I love about them. I always have my camera super ready, whenever I see horses before I even get out of my car, because 99% of the time, if they think you have good energy (and they do psychically know) then they will come over to the fence and see you.

Some of the best shots happen while the horses are coming from far away in the field, over to see me. That is when I shoot on high speed continuous and/or TV mode as they are coming towards me. This image was taken in the Interior of British Columbia. Love the birds in the image as well!

Horse Photos in Mexico

On March 17, 2010, in Equine Photography, by brendajohima

One thing I LOVE to do while on vacation, is to photograph horses, animals and wildlife, and this image is one of my most favorite recent images, taken on my 2010 Mexican vacation to the Mayan Rivera, and specifically, this one was taken at XCaret. I love the colors and lines and contrast:
