Okay, you can't help but be a little preoccupied with the weather these days.  The temperatures have been in the upper 90's for days, it's felt like the 100s, folks are sweaty/super flushed and have that oppressive look on their face and weathermen are pretty vague about when it's going to end.  I did some outdoor shooting, for only a couple of minutes, for a portrait session yesterday, but I have to say we weren't happy campers.  Didn't stay long outside.  Ended up going indoors.  Relief!!!
.

The good news is that it's the weekend.  Hope you're up to some good things and fun stuff.  What are we doing this weekend??? Or should I say, what are we drinking this weekend??? But seriously, where ever you are, drink your water.  It really does help!!. P.S.  here's a bride from a much much cooler day!!!RodneyMicklePhotographer. .

Who wouldn't love to wake up to and work at a nice, clean and clear work space every day. But at my desk you'll find my monitors, laptop, bullet journal, notes, papers, iphone, hard drives, memory cards, pens, and cup of tea or a cup of decaf coffee.
.
The bottom line is that my desk is  filled up with different things. Organized to suit me but that's the real and true picture of my work days.  And I love it!! So, where's your favorite place and where you get your BEST work done?  Your kitchen table?  Coffee ☕️ shop?  Your couch?  Your bed??? Or like me, Your desk?
.

I guess the Perfect place is where makes you happy. RodneyMicklePhotographer.❤️ .

I saw this quote and I loved the encouraging message.  Most days you know so clearly what you have to do- what needs to be done, but sometimes you need a gentle reminder to keep going when roadblocks come up.  If someone needs encouragement (including me), these words definitely will guide and lift you.  I'm about moving forward, making progress, and enjoying and being passionate about life and work.  Hurdles are going to  come  just  jump over them!!!

Me and Cameron after our school's sports awards breakfast.  One thing I never expected was that he would love running like I do.  A couple of years ago he just started doing laps around the field, just for fun, during his brother's baseball practice.  And he's kept up his running ever since.  He wants to get better every day and doesn't seem to mind working hard. .
I love coaching and encouraging him and am so proud of him.  It definitely makes my day!!! RodneyMicklePhotographer.❤️ .

Starting off my day with my new favorite way to make coffee for Sonia.  I also do my decaf this way.  Boil water, weigh the coffee, then pour through filter.  For some reason it just tastes richer and better.  It's a very subtle difference, but different.  And the best part is that it just seems easier and less time consuming to make, which definitely works for me!!! Any favorite ritual when you get up in the morning?  Mine is that I Love when it's nice and quiet in the house and you can actually hear the drip, drip.  RodneyMicklePhotographer.❤️

Okay, so the plan is to work out on these after my runs.  Planning out my running and weight routine provides focus. So I live by a mantra when I'm trying to get things done, especially when doing a workout. "If you fail to plan, plan to fail." These words definitely inspire me, gets me going, and helps get things done. Actually, it's a good reminder everyday!!! But have to admit, some days these words work better than others.

What can I say about black and white photographs.  Well, I love pops of color but I have to say that I love the quiet simplicity and the drama of a black and white picture.  I've never asked this before, but do you have any preference for black and white or color photographs. .

It's not so straightforward because it might come down to the particular image that's captured. And it might come down to a mind shift because it is definitely an absence of color.  But then again, is it really??? In any case, my bottom line is that I'm a fan. RodneyMicklePhotographer.❤️ .

I came across this quote the other day and just love it.  It captures exactly what I find so precious, magical, and so real about photography. .

I know Warhol is famous for his art, unique look, and infamous quote about everyone being famous for 15 minutes.  But I have to give him credit for some pretty simple, straightforward, and insightful quotes.  So for me,  this one is truly on target.  And it definitely cheers you on to capture pictures and moments!!!

Ready to dive back into work after a nice holiday break.  Doing a portrait shoot outside.  Sun decided not to come out and play today.  So it may be gray and a little dreary, but conditions are perfect for an outdoor session.  Which means it's a beautiful day!!! Always grateful for great light and natural backdrop.

Spent the last couple of days enjoying the holiday and marathon binge watching the TV show "Younger." If you ever caught "Sex and the City" it kind of reminds you of that show. Totally funny, clever, and creative writing.  And it shows smart, accomplished, and ambitious career women and their life outside of work. .
I really can't believe how addictive it is.  But the bottom line is... been spending quality time with Sonia, and it's kind of been like a nonstop perpetual movie date!!! Great time to binge watch favorites.  Any binge watchers out there??? BTW, these are for later tonight.  Happy 4th Folks!!!! RodneyMicklePhotographer.❤️ .
