Little Ironman (photography on Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands)

Posing with his new boots

I've been having a major creativity block.  I don't know what the deal is, but the harder I try to get out of it, the worse it seems to get.  I've been trying to design my new website, but with not an ounce of luck.  Spending too much time in front of the computer is never a good thing for me. Not only is it not good for my brain, but it makes my legs and feet hurt, but that's a completely different story.  How people sit at desk jobs every day is a mystery to me. Seriously.  I can't do it. Think my best bet is to just chill out.  What will be, will be.  It will go away on it's own, right?  Right?  So....right now, I'm laying out on a blanket in the shade, watching Tharin play.  Lately, getting him away from the TV has been a fight.  He has become completely and utterly obsessed with Ironman and slightly obsessed with Spiderman. On any occasion, you can expect to be blasted to smithereens by one wave of little Ironmans hand. Not only does he love Ironman, but also 'Ironman Music'. We've been listening to lots of Black Sabbath, Metallica and AC/DC. He LOVES it!! and I'll be honest, surprisingly, I don't mind it all that much either, which I find super weird. I guess I have a bit of an inner headbanger.

With all the creativity blockage going on around here, I do have a few semi-new and new pictures of my little Ironman.

Yes, they are watching TV.

Posing with his new cowboy boots he got from me-me and paw-paw

Snack time

Covered in his stuffed animals.  I have to go in and remove them every night or he is completely drenched in sweat.

Off to sleep with his favorite thing in the whole wide world...his mask and alter ego, Ironman

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
