I do try and put interesting photos in each blog.

Old Chevy Truck

Old Chevy Truck

The story of this old Chevy truck started with road construction.  Lately in our neighborhood there has been a ton of road construction resulting in drastic changes.  A lot of the cactus and bushes along the side of the road were removed.  Then the speed limit was lowered from 45 to 25. Both the removed of vegetation along the road and a lower speed limit allowed Hubby to see this old Chevy truck.  He told me about this truck and asked if I wanted to take a photo.  He showed it to me but I didn’t have my camera.  Because of the road...

Boss Mare Equine Fine Art

Boss Mare Equine Fine Art

Last month, Katie contacted me about buying the Boss Mare equine fine art photo.  Katie wanted to know if I would ship Boss Mare a photo in my Etsy shop to Australia.  In my Etsy store I sell only to US customers. I had been wanting to branch out and sell to customers in Canada, England and Germany.  So I thought this would be a good time to do some research on shipping to customers out of the US. I asked the photo lab I use to print my photos if they shipped to Australia.  They said no they only shipped to Canada and the US.  I called the...

Photo Session With A Roper

What a fun photo session we had with a local Tucson Roper!  We were so fortunate to have great weather, awesome horses and good looking people.  Even though the photo session was scheduled for early January the weather was perfect. I’ve never done a photo session with a roper.  This photo session was a Christmas gift from his three daughters.   They called me and scheduled for January 2018. We so enjoyed meeting the family and their horses.  I hope you enjoy seeing some of the photos from this session.  ...

Pet Portraits

Pet Portraits

I took a couple of online pet portraits photo classes this week.  Some of it was a review but I did learn a lot about both my camera settings and poses for dogs and cats. After the class I took some pet portraits of my dog Clyde and my cat Buster.  The cat was the easier of the two to photograph.  Who knew.  LOL Clyde wants to be next to you and touching you so that makes taking photos a challenge.  And if you are close to him you should be petting him.  I think that was an unknown rule when we adopted him.  We got Clyde from Save-A-Bull...

National Equine Visions Art – WHAM Art Show

I was thrilled to drop off two of my horse paintings that were judged into the WHAM Community Art Center’s National Equine Visions Art Show.

The paintings made it into the show but the photograph didn’t. “Winter Coat” acrylic painting by Maureen Kirk-Detberner.  Painting features a palomino horse with blue sky background, featuring the horse looking over his back, photo taken by Maureen Kirk-Detberner of FastWinn Photography in January. This ranch horse...
