If at First You Don’t Succeed…

When we were at Bald Knob, Tony and I ran across yet another tree that demonstrates great determination. It fell down, but it wasn’t deterred. It sprouted new roots and shot up three new “trunks” towards the sky.

A tree’s second try

Up at the top of Bald Knob, Tony and I also found value in trying again. It took us a few attempts to get a shot of us at one of the overlooks.

The first time my foot accidently hit the camera as I rushed in frame. Tony and I quickly tried to correct our poses:

Take 1 – Leaning into the shot

We had some issues with lighting and focus and then one shot, the dogs were in the way.

Take 4 – Trying to get the dogs out of the shot.

Then finally, we got a workable shot:

Take 5 – Jimmie, Vicky, Tony, Henry

    I admire your self-portrait perfectionism. Maybe for Christmas you should ask for a camera with a remote release. Just a suggestion, of course… πŸ˜‰
