Hello Members of the Phello Photographers Club! This will be a place where you can post up to 2 of your favorite images each week. They can be old, new, winners, or ones you never entered. It's up to you, but remember only 2 per week so we can all have time to check out each others work! :~)

Spirit of the Wolf
Took the shot of the trees from the road to the Oregon coast from Corvallis. The wolf was captured at the wolf sanitary near Chehalis, Washington using a 200mm lens. He was behind a chain link fence.

Used cloning on the fence and then blended the two images in PSE7

I didn't take these in July but these two are some of my all time favorite of my son. The first one, I was setting up my old Nikon N65 film camera on the tripod and was using a wireless remote to take our family portrait for Christmas cards in December of 2004, my son, William, loved to get his picture taken or take self portraits all the time...he jumped in front of the camera up really close and kept pestering me to take a photo of him. At first I told him to get back with his dad and sister so I could focus it, but he's a persistent guy and wouldn't move, so I snapped just one shot of him to make him happy and this photo has been my solace and comfort in many a sleepless night. This is the way I remember him the best...laughing, smiling, joking around, doing crazy dances on top of his camaro on the freeway while waiting for his dad to bring a spare tire in rush hour traffic...what did he have on? A pair of red & white flowered Hawaiin style board shorts and yes you guessed it...nothing else but the Santa hat he had on in this photo and his puca shells...that's my boy, a real traffic stopper! He didn't get down until a Highway Patrol pulled over & made him get down because he was backing traffic up with his shenanigans-people laughing & pointing. I asked him why he would do such a thing and he said, "It was so hot mum, & the people were all scowling from the commute, I just wanted to give people something to laugh at!"
The second one is a shot I took for him to take down to the Orange County for his auditions - one for the TV show OC. He got 4 call backs & letters & two agents signed him for different music videos...it was just 2 weeks before he went missing...I found out later from my husband, that the agents all came to his funeral, but I don't remember anything hardly from that day. It's all a huge blur. But these are my two favorites for AnYtImE.

  I've seen both of these photos of Will before and they really are great. I especially like the one of him smiling and what a great story you told. I love it! I can't imagine losing a child....and I'm sure it's extra difficult not knowing what happened. I'm sure you play the day over and over in your mind with different scenarios of what really went wrong. I know that's probably what I would do. Not the healthy choice, but it's how I'm wired and we both seem to have similar personalities. I wish there was something I could do to ease your pain. I know we don't speak much outside of commenting on photos in Phellos, but I think of you often! :~)
