I’m a happy camper. After dealing with humidity frizz and hat hair, I got my hair cut today! But not without frustration and GPS snafus. Ladies, you know how difficult it is to change hairdressers. Double that when you have to pick a salon without recommendation. I got lucky.

It took us three days to arrive in Stafford, our hub to see Washington, D.C., battlefields and surrounding towns. It’s also has been raining for the last three days. And when I say rain, I mean rain. So I really didn’t have an opportunity to take pictures.

Therefore, remember those shots I was saving for a travel and/or a rainy day? Well here they are. Now, I’ve never tried to take images during a show, especially one where they are blowing mist to diffuse the lighting. I also need to be just a little bit taller; okay, a lot taller.

If any of you photographers who are reading this blog have suggestions, please send them. Photographer/artist Leanne Cole sent me some suggestions on getting the entire picture in focus. She’s amazing. Visit her blog at leannecolephotography.com. I also want to thank Vit Peyr who gave me software advice. You can visit him at vitpeyr.com.  These photos are mostly unedited. I tried to do one on my own and ruined it (It was a copy.). Then I tried auto fix and that didn’t do much, so I left them alone. It was a great show, and I hope you get some sense of the talent from the images.

Tomorrow, we may go see some battlefields. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll continue to pamper myself with a pedicure.

Happy July 4th!

  1. You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation
    however I to find this topic to be actually one thing which
    I believe I would by no means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely wide for me.

    I am taking a look forward on your next publish, I will try
    to get the cling of it!

    1. Hi Margarita, I’m not sure I understand what you mean about not understanding this post. We have been on a cross-country trip in our trailer. We left California on June 3rd and have been on the road ever since. This post was written during our stay in Stafford, VA. Since then we’ve been to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Maine and are now in Illinois. Please let me know how I can help you understand.
