A photograph is a click away. A good photograph is a hundred clicks away and a better one, a thousand clicks away.

We are all so busy these days that it’s hard to get together and just have fun sometimes. My girlfriends and I are no exception. Two of us are taking care of our ailing parents, and my other two friends have teenagers in high school. So, although we try to get together, something always seems to get in the way.
My girlfriend Tammy took the lead and planned a weekend get away to a local ranch. I had no idea that this place existed. Seriously, if you are ever in Florida, you have to check this place out. We had a blast riding the mechanical bull, skeet shooting, watching rodeos, and line dancing. Thank goodness we took a vow not to upload any videos to social media!
As we are all shutterbugs, we took our cameras and just clicked away. We shot using available light, moving subjects, and large animals. In the evenings, we worked on uploading our daily shots and catching up on the never-ending list of photos to edit. We relaxed, danced, talked, and laughed to the wee hours of the morning. It was just what we all needed. A reset.
We really do have to make the time to reconnect with the people in our lives. We were all able to reset ourselves and return home ready to tackle life as it unfolds. Clicking away all weekend also allowed us to photograph a variety of subjects in various settings, and also pushed us outside of our norms.
