Photo Shoot Extras

Happy Sunday Evening!

I've been feeling so guilty that I'm not really at liberty to share 
all the pics I shot this past weekend...
have to wait and see if they're published, after all....

So I took a second look and came up with two
really special shots that I snapped at the
Willow Nest photo shoot that aren't being submitted...hope you enjoy!

Gorgeous lavabo, found on Linda and Ludmil's front deck.

And then there's these two characters just over the fence....

Little miniature donkeys. What a hoot!
They stand there and schmooze until you feed them oatmeal cookies!
Now I simply MUST go out and buy me a 
pair of Sicilian donkeys! Thanks, Ludmil! ;-)

Have a great week, my friends!

This is such great news Anne, but with your skills I can't say I'm surprised! And that second shot is too darn cute, now I want a pair of donkeys too!!!

Congratulations!

Grinning from ear to ear!! LOVE the donkeys!! :)

Jackie said...

Oh those donkeys are so cute!! Great shot of them! Oatmeal cookies, my fav too!!

Sarah said...

Anne, no question that you need a pair of these for your new abode. My close friend (and a photographer) just purchased a pair of these charmers for her property. Oatmeal cookies? I'll have to pass that one along.

Anne, I stay at a place in Round Top where they raise miniature donkeys and I cannot tell you how many times I have almost come home with one, or two!! Glad you had a good weekend - dying to see pictures of the show!!

Hill Country House Girl said...

P.S. I first met Linda and Ludmil when they set up at the Fredericksburg show a few years ago. What a lovely and talented couple. So glad you got to photograph them and that they are getting published. They are as kind and gracious and they are gifted!

Those donkeys are sooo adorable, I just want to pet those sweet noses..they would surely get oatmeal cookies from me!

Linda said...

Great photos...and can't wait to see more!

Anji Johnston said...

I just LOVE your new camera! And all your wonderful photos (even though there are never enough for me to drool over!). Let us all know when we can run out and buy a copy of the magazine. So happy for you!

Those donkeys are sweet!

I used to raise Miniature Horses and ponies. They would beg for those el-cheap-o sandwich cookies....vanilla/chocolate were their favorite!

Thanks for the memories..........

Hi Anne,

I'm so happy you're dream is coming true. Your photography is just so lovely (like you) and it makes me happy to look at it. Things have been rather tough here lately, so I'm not getting out as much as I'd like in Blogland. God Bless, and I wish you continued success with your gift of beautiful vision through a lens.

Big Hugs,
Meri

tammy n said...

I found your blog this week-end...nice, nice, nice!♥

Libbie said...

Those donkeys are PERFECT for a greeting card! Just think of the funniness they could inspire :) LOVE the shots PHOTOGRAPHER GIRL :)

Charlene said...

LOVE the lavabo with the blue whatevers in it. So Linda... And as for the donkeys... re-think that one. We have a donkey at the farm & he is such a pain. He wants you to pet him alllllllll the time. Will follow you around making such a racket. And my poor son had NO luck hunting since Jack decided to sit under his deer stand & wait for him to come down....
Can't wait to see the photos. Have a great week.
Charlene

Don't forget to come out of the editing cave for air.. I'll be in the same boat with you. :)
Lots of love xoxox Lara

Pam said...

Anne, I have a little jenny donkey that my husband gave last year for Valentine's day.( He really did get points for this gift!) She has the sweetest deposition and has made a great companion to our old, old horse. (Around here people are trying to give donkeys away - I see ads every week for free donkeys in the sale papers!) So now I'm a big donkey fan! Love your blog! Never miss it.

I'm so excited for you! SUCH AWESOME NEWS! I too LOVE love love those donkeys! Too cute they are! I have a Lavabo also, I bought it at the end of the season and haven't decided if I'm going to plant in it or have running water. I was leaning toward the water but now with your photo...oh I can't decide! GREAT photos! ...if you have a second, stop by I'm having a fun giveaway!~

Privet and Holly said...

my house. Who knew it was
Sicilian donkeys???

Jem said...

I cannot get over those miniature donkeys! I grew up with horses so I'm a huge fan of all things 4 legged but those donkeys!! I wish I had the space! :-)

Congratulations Anne! I'm so thrilled you've had such a successful shoot - cannot wait to see it published you must keep us all posted!
