I like to say that word and it’s a good thing, because that’s all I have to share for wheat planting so far.IMG_20171001_151836831

We have been getting moisture this fall, which is awesome, but we’ve been getting so much moisture that it’s keeping us from planting, which is unheard of for SW Kansas.

My husband said he can’t remember a time that we didn’t plant a single kernel of wheat in September……

We are planting now, though and getting ready to harvest fall crops.  Things work out if we are patient.   In the end, we are fortunate to be in a profession where we are reminded almost daily that we are not the ones in control of our world or our farm!

I love this camera!!!!!!!   I love the pretty colors.   I love how big it is.  I especially love the blinding flash!  It’s so satisfying to see the startled looks on my victims- um subjects- faces.

I love the poor quality pictures that pop up and develop while I wait.  I love to carry them around and look at them.

It has been so long since I’ve had to actually stop and think about lighting.   That part is refreshing in a way, and so is the fact that the photos are what they are.  No editing, just a good old fashioned take your chances snapshot.    Sometimes it’s good to be rediculous!
