My Junior Photographer...

This past year, I purchased a new digital camera and Bree begged for my old one. Well, after I figured out how to use the new one (well, almost), I gave her the old one and she takes a TON of pictures!

She took some of Marigold (who went to her new home this week - see my friend's Sarah's blog - link over on the right) and I wanted to see them, so I downloaded her memory card.

I hadn't realized there were some on the card from our trip to the American Quarter Horse Congress in Ohio back in October..

So, I'm just going to do a "photo" collage of some of the neat photos she's taken! I think she should learn more about photography as with her "artistic" ability, she has a great EYE!

Here's some of the photos I just think are awesome...

Our dogs...




Miss Marigold:







Her other pet... (she gets her "sick" sense of humor from her Dad - just ask Paige)



These are of Stacy Westfall riding BAREBACK and BRIDLESS doing a complete reining routine WHILE speaking (via microphone) to the crowd.. Phenom...



Then she brings in a youngster (3 year old) and has trained this horse to perform the same reining routine in sync with her on the other horse - only using the little tap stick you see to cue the horse - (think sychronized swimming). It was truly a "treat" to see - and again, she continued to talk her way thru it to the crowd - amazing!





Then, Bree took these great photos of the girl who won the freestyle reining (which is costumes, free flow pattern and set to music) - think choregraphed horse dancing.. This girl rode to Phantom of the Opera (notice the horse's costume) and she rode the horse thru the entire pattern with a tie-halter on.. She was wonderful and Bree thinks doing a phantom of the opera costume for the 4H Fair next year would be cool!





All these photos were taken with my 4 or 5 year old little sony digital camera - I think she should use the good camera and I'll go back to the "old" one - she obviously has fun and can take super photos!

Wow her Congress pics turned out way better than mine did--mine are blurry

I know.. They're not dark either - besides cropping them, I didn't have to do a thing to them - for a 9 year (now 10) - she is GOOD!

Memo from Ree ( grandma) of course she is GOOD as in GOOD GOOD.

Just make sure her HAT always fits the head.

The basketball game brought back memories of that day. Good girl

Wow! She really does have a great eye! I especially love the pic of Socks and Snooper in the sunshine (hmm, say that five times fast....).
