It was a hot day at the Rockwall Farmer’s Market when I unexpectedly ran into Donna. Now I have known Donna for quite a number of years but mostly in a professional capacity as she would pass me in my Basic Life Support as well as the mandatory yearly skills at the hospital.
So on this day we had a nice chat and I mentioned to her that I had started this crazy photography club. The next thing out of her mouth was… “I want to join!” And then I heard the rest of the story… she loves photography but her subject (her son) was going off to college. She was accustomed to photographing him and his friends in the band and now that was all about to change. She was excited and charged up and remains like that today.
It has been delightful getting to know Donna better and she is great fun on the outings. And who else would wear fancy cowboy boots and shorts to go shooting! I tell you… these gals know how to dress! Floppy hats, snake boots, dark glasses and always some jewelry! That’s what girls do.
Now when guys go out to shoot, they wear the funkiest clothes they can find.
Knowing that the girls like to dress up a bit, for our birthday Donna made the most beautiful necklaces using our photos. How proud I am everytime I wear my ostrich around my neck! And yes… I will be featuring this in a later post so we can all learn how to do it.
Donna’s photos also have a story behind them and she very much likes old things and her photography has a sentimental feel.
Donna and Lorraine tied for the second most comments on the blog.
