A Photographer and his assistant.....

Scott (the photographer) and his daughter (Abbey, my granddaughter) were roaming the redwoods when they spotted the perfect shot. As his assistant looked on with a look of surprise, Scott got the shot they were hunting.

I remember Scott telling me, not long ago, that a perfect day would be his child strapped to his back and his camera strapped to his front, roaming the woods photographing nature. It only took 4 months to get Abbey to agree to being his assistant. (Thanks Sara for the photo - it's priceless)

 and a little holiday music to enjoy

Twas the night before Christmas .......

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!

To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
