From a different point of view

Last November, I went to Florida to visit my parents for a few days and Ethel and the Ethelettes
(her daughter and son) flew in to ranchsit.

Ethelette #2 (Jay) is a photographer. That's him leading the pack string on Lucy.
He took lots and lots of pictures during his stay at the 7MSN, which Ethel brought along on a CD for me this trip. 


I love all the pictures he took and am fascinated by seeing my animals and ranch through someone else's eyes. 
I thought you might be, too, so I'll share a few of my favorites here today.
Jay has a page set up on flickr where you can see more of his work. Here's the link.
I'll shut up now so you can just sit back and look.

  1. I am so glad you shared these. I love the use of light in almost all of these and me thinks he had a love going on with Smooch... these are fantastic, he even made Wynonna beautiful. LOL each photo with sunlight in it made me happy by seeing the focus the sun puts on objects to make them beautiful..

  4. Fab pics. A different approach with a different camera. Thanks for sharing. Can't choose the one I like best. They are all so good. I did laugh at Wynonna with the can of beer.

    Best always,

  7. Yes, thank you for sharing! I couldn't believe the black sky. I'll bet you didn't know Wynonna was a bush drinker! The things that go on when you're away.....

  8. Does Hank mind following Lucy, since it's usually his job to lead the parade?

  14. I figure now is better than ever to join your blog... Ethel can't have all the fun ;)
    Ethelette #1 is here to stay! Seeing these pictures make me miss being there even more... I give you so much credit woman... because the one picture of me about to pass out at the table shows just how much you do.

  16. How fun (and amazing and wonderful) it must be to see your home and four-footed family through the "eyes" of another!

    I didn't realize just how *huge* burros' heads are, or how much princess pigs like beer. :)

    I love our scenery in NC, but it can't beat the drama of the New Mexico mountains and sky that you see every day. Wow.

  17. Wonderful. And thanks for the link; I had other plans, but then couldn't help spending the entire afternoon gazing at J's photos and reading his commentary. Oh my. Incredibly intense and powerful.

  20. What a talented photographer...his perspective is enthralling! And the last one? Well, I love seeing the photographer being photographed mid-photograph! Only then do we truly see how engaged someone is to get the perfect shot! :-)
