A long, WET winter (Feb 23/16)

Boucs23Feb16-07PMMea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

I apologize, I have been horrible at (not) maintening the blog properly since Christmas. It’s being (not been, alas, we’re still enduring it) a long, warm, drab and WET winter. Our whole property is literally soaked in water. So obviously not the best circumstances for shutter therapy…


However, here are a few images of our new backyard maintenance team : 4 young neutered male goats (how do you call those anyway, bucks ?)/ Domino, Sven, Blacky and Chocolat


The youngest are about 6 months old and fully weaned, so now they can binge on the 3000 square meters of unmanageable shrubs that grow in one part of our property

Boucs23Feb16-08PMThey either stick all together, or go by pairs, the two dark ones, or as here, the two light ones. Goats are highly photogenic models, so get ready to see a bunch of goat images soon 😉

    Claire, it would be great to see more of your work. When you announced at the start of the year, an image a day, I honestly chuckled a bit! I have been doing this for about 5 years now. It can be incredibly draining and stressful. Once you get the hang of it, it can be quite fun and I know my clients appreciate when I tell them they will be “Image of the Day” the day after our photo session. I do think it helps with referrals also, because they tell their friends to head over to my site to check out their freshly made image. So, try and stick with it! You have some great subject matter between your family and farm!

    Thank you so much Dave !! I’ve been able to maitain that pace in the past, but recently I just lapsed a lot. Your kind comment inspired me to get back to it, it needs to become a little daily discipline that cannot be neglected !! Thank you thank you !
