People…

Many of you know how much I love to photograph people…I try to never miss an opportunity and people have been so nice to let me photograph them for my blog…This is Carol and her Mother…aren’t they beautiful??? You’ve seen Carol on my blog before…here
image
This is Dr. Ron Kirkland, Carol’s hubby…he is running for a political office here in NW Tennessee…and he is a native of the little town where we live!!!
We attended a debate last night featuring Dr. Ron and the other three candidates…The debate was sponsored by the Obion and Weakley County and Young Republican Parties here in West Tennessee. We thank them for this opportunity...
Can I just say that we are so fortunate to have four of the most talented and moral men I’ve ever known running for this Republican slot.
It is so hard to decide between them and it keeps me going over their professional attributes in my mind a lot.
Dr. Ron is a well known physician who practices in Jackson, Tn. He is a member of a very notable clinic there in Jackson.
He has held many professional positions in the state and on the national level.
image This is Mr. Stephen Fincher, he is a well known area farmer who lives in Frog Jump, Tn….yep…how could you not love a farmer from Frog Jump.  In addition to farming he is a member of a prominent family who is known for their Gospel Singing, talent too!!!

This is Dr.George Flinn…Dr. Flinn is from the Memphis area and is quite well known in the West Tennessee area. He is also a small business owner in our area. He owns quite a few area radio and television stations (they number in the forties I believe) so he is quite well versed in business as well as health care. He is also very personable and quite proud of his family…he emailed me a great photo of his grandson and dog swimming together!!!
imageI love this photo of Dr. Kirkland and Randy Smith talking. Randy is the fourth candidate running in this primary!!!
Political foes??? I think not…all of these men are committed to getting this country out of the proverbial ditch that we are in.
I’m certain they have all made sacrifices we will never know about in order to run in this contest.

Mr. Randy Smith is the fourth candidate that we heard last night. Randy is known for packin’…  Packin’ his copy of the Constitution of our country!!!
He has some pretty good ideas and is the most animated speaker we had. He was pretty difficult to get a good photo of since he used his hands and arms to punctuate his remarks. He had the audience in stitches quite a few times and actually remained quite serious and enthusiastic at the same time. I think that takes a lot of talent!!!  Randy is a chef. The chef of a very popular restaurant in Jackson, Tn. It’s very popular because his food is very good!!! The name of the family owned restaurant is Baudo’s.
Below are a few more of the people photos that I was lucky enough to snatch!!!

Family…this is what this politicky stuff is all about!!!

Hello Sunshine!!!

My hubby leaves for work at about 5:40 a.m. and this morning he told me about this little field of sunflowers he drives by every morning…Sleepily, I asked for directions and when he thought the best time to photograph it…UGGGHHHH… he said right now…
So about 6:30 I was able to get enough caffeine in my bloodstream for my eyes and camera to focus together and headed out.
Now my dogs were not happy with me leaving this early. They both had allergy shots yesterday and preferred me to crawl back into bed to snuggle with them… I thought that was a good idea also…
We don’t have acres of sunflowers growing around here since this is prime corn country. A small strip of sunflowers growing alongside a cornfield that is accessible by my little car is rare.image
See my blue arrows in the upper right corner…I was greeted by this…well, hello sunshine…happy to see you also!!!
Enjoy the rest of my eye candy!!!
image These aren’t the large hybrid type sunflowers, they were probably planted for dove hunters…
image
Wouldn’t it be glorious to wake up to this view every morning…
image
Love me some yellow bokeh!!!
image Butter, egg yolks….what do you think of???
