Xenophon 2017 Horse Show

For the tenth year in a row, I photographed the kids and the festivities at the annual Xenophon Horse Show. This year I had help from Kelly, who did a great job with my X100F. I used the Fuji XT-2 and the 90mm and 18mm lenses. Here are a few of our favorites. You can Read More

I Truly Hate Hiking

Unless of course it’s near Jackson, Wyoming. Hiking isn’t the only thing we did in Jackson Hole. We also shopped and ate way too much. And of course, we took a few pictures. (Some of the best shots from this trip were shot by the Kellster!) It’s hard to pick favorites. Here are just a Read More

Terramare and Beyond!

Despite near gale-force winds, this motivated group was undeterred in its quest to place a small white ball in a teeny-tiny hole far, far away. First at Sea Ranch Golf Links, and the next day at the Little River Inn. I know – two golf courses in two days??? Don’t worry – thedude has not Read More

Poop Scoopin’ with Annie

While most of the rest of the country deals with a weather emergency, Jim and Kelly drove out to Xenophon to meet the newest member of the herd – Annie. She seems to be taking to her new digs nicely. Read More

Kelly and GoGo

Practicing with the new camera. It turns out that the built-in flash on the D800 works quite well for flash fill. Read More

Oops – It Must Be Sunday

I think I need to add a new “horsie” category to my blog! By the way, I used my el-cheapo Korean 85mm 1.4 lens on today’s shoot. I love that lens! Read More

Another Sunday, Another Horsie

Meet another of Kelly’s pals from the Xenophon herd – Starlight. Read More

Rider in the Rain

Determined to get a look at Bandit under control of a more skilled rider, (thanks, Hannah!) Kelly and Stella brave the rain and fog at Skyline Ranch this morning. Read More

First Photo Event After PhotoShop World

I attended my first-ever PhotoShop World in Las Vegas last week, and all things considered, I would give the event a thumbs-up. After recovering from the shock of the most expensive martini ever, and a corny, but slick keynote, the classes turned out to be worth the price. I attended 7 or 8 classes, where Read More

Introducing Bandit

Kelly’s childhood dream finally comes true! Accompanied by their official photographer, Kelly and Bandit took a short ride on this sunny, 70 degree day. Looks like Bandit and Kelly are getting along splendidly. Many thanks to the great folks at Xenophon Therapeutic Riding for all of the support. Without your help, this would not have Read More

Xenophon Horse Show 2009

Yes, I’m still taking pictures, and Kelly is still volunteering at Xenophon, where we get to hang out with the nicest imaginable kids, horses and volunteers. Wonderful. Read More

Xenophon Gala 2009

As you know, thedude and Kelly volunteer some of their time in support of an amazing organization called Xenophon Therapeutic Riding. Last night we attended their annual fundraiser. The Xenophon Gala is always fun, and this year’s event was no exception, as you can clearly see from the photos. Please visit the Xenophon web site Read More
