on saying YES


071146
A few years ago I read a life changing interview.  It was, improbably, an interview with Tina Fey about switching from being a writer to a performer.  What it really was about, was letting yourself go and saying yes to opportunities, no matter how odd or challenging or curious they appear when presented. Since then, my photography, my business and my life are a lot more fun.

So when a neighbor asked if I wanted to drop by and photograph her chickens in their new hats, there was only one way to answer: Hell yes!

  2. Excellent advise, dear Gale!

    Love the new banner.

    The chicken hat photos are very Vogue-like, in a farmy way!

  5. The hats have a LUCKY LOOK. Who else has chickens? Well, lots of folks but who other than a LUCKY makes chicken hats? Possibly there are chicken knitting sessions going on somewhere in Short Beach.

  7. Gay's right. I thought I maybe should have captioned these as "Only In Short Beach". The hats are 100% Owen Sea Luckey http://www.owensealuckey.com/
