Once Upon a State Park

Once upon a State Park, myself, the MadSnapper
(note I only do shadow shots of me)

and my friends Sammie and Diane (Diane is the one in jeans) went shooting on Saturday morning.
(note: no guns involved, just Cameras, Diane is a MadSnapper also)

We parked and climbed UP

and down and into that deep dark Forrest

Sammie raced up the steps, come ON you two, step it up, I smell Stuff up here

Diane was wading through the mess on the boardwalk from the storm we had a few days ago, so i took her picture. (note, Diane does not like the camera either)


Diane said Sit, Sammie, be still  so she could aim her camera without  blur
 and the Sunshine Sat On Sammie Sitting

 
the MadSnapper with her friend PhotoShop added a little PS light on Sammies head...

HUNKER DOWN FRIENDS.....IT WILL TAKE THREE MORE DAYS TO FINISH

                     THE REST OF THIS STORY      PS, Sammie is short for Samantha, she is a pretty girl.

Interesting walk and commentary. Good shots nice angles. The deep dark forest looks a bit scary but I see you have a vicious watchdog there in Sam...anther.

I love the shots of Sammie beautiful dog. In the first pic there's a madsnapper lurking there, I can see the shadow. I'm looking forward to the rest of the adventure.

This looks like a wonderful adventure.The scenes are great and having a friend with you would make it even more special.

Looks like a great walk. I'm a big fan of shadow and shoe shots too :-)

Shadow shots work for me too! Can't wait to go further into those dark and deep woods.

Best,

Looks like yall had a great time. Love the shots of Sammie. The one with the light on his head makes me think he is a "Doggie Angel." Is there anything dangerous in that forest?

Remington said...

Great shots! We love forests too....but Beth has this thing for ticks....does not care for them....so we just look and don't go in them....

Stuff could always be worse said...

Beautiful photos, feels like I was in the State Park! Fun

Again, we are the same today, because I posted a to-be continued story, too. Sammy is a cutie pie, and I know she is just the prelude to your adventure!! Can't wait!

I'm glad you didn't have any damage from the storms that went through your area.
I enjoyed both the walk around your back yard and your walk in the state park. I look forward to more of your adventures in the park.

Looks like all of you had a great time. What state park were you at?
Sammie is quite an adorable little girl.

HI Sandra, You know how I love your photos like this --when you visit such a beautiful place.

Miss "Sweep-it-up" would take my broom and sweet the boardwalk though... ha ha

Back from vacation --trying to catch up a little!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Looks like from your nice pictures here You and Sammy had a nice walk. Sandie

Ann said...

what a nice place to visit and how fun to have a fellow madsnapper to go along with. Sammie is a very pretty girl and how nice of her to sit still while her mom focused

Regina said...

That looks like a beautiful place for a hike Sandra..really captivating!! What a cute dog too..I like your shadows and bet you had a good time. Love all the pretty leaves.. I need to get out and hike myself!!

SquirrelQueen said...

This looks like the kind of hiking place I would love. Sammie is a cutie, she would probably appreciate the spot of sun on her head.

I have enjoyed all your park posts, and it was a treat meeting Diane and the splendid little Samantha!
