Dancers in Sepia

I have been photographing some of the high school dance team girls for four years. I think when I was photographing the girls' warm up for Friday Night's half time show I may very well have captured my favorite image of them. Before heading to the field for their half time performance the girls circle up with their dance teacher/coach and pray together. I love that they do this!

I love sepia tones but have not considered changing the dance team pictures to sepia before now. I think I like the effect.

I challenge you to take some photos you have that you haven't considered changing to sepia and post them. Then come back and here and let me know you did so I can see too.

Friday Night Lights: Matadors vs. Mules

Friday night of course found us seated at the high school stadium cheering on the Matadors. We were hoping for a win but it was not to be. The Mules kicked us but we did give them a run for it and the boys played a good game.

This was the first football game of the season that was actually cold! Everyone in the stands could be found in long sleeves and jackets, the concession stand began to serve hot chocolate and coffee, and the dancers couldn't stop shivering.

When I first arrived to take some photos of the dancers in the stands I remembered that Ashley had rejoined the dance team! Welcome back Ashley!!!

Ashley and Heather

Of course half time is my favorite part of football! Heather danced with the Starsteppers...

...then marched with the band.

Go Mats Go!!!

PhotoStory Friday-The County Fair!

Last night, as is our annual tradition, we went to the county fair. We always go on Thursday nights to watch the rodeo because that's the night (thanks to our local radion station), we receive FREE admission and ride tickets. Who can resist FREE??? Not me, especially when on a tight budget.

Here are some photos of what I like most about the fair:
all the LIGHTS!!!

And of course we enjoy the rodeo as well!!!

Cool ride to photograph...but you won't catch ME on it!!!

Seemingly popular booth at the fair:
