a little bit of the sweet summer blues...

I'm not really a blueberry girl at all
as far as just grabbing a handful and eating them
but
a certain cake I make
which needs to be stacked high with fresh fruit as the topping
always includes blueberries
and
then I'm alright with them
~~
only because
I know they're good for me
~~
and
they look cool

you know what else they're good for
?
photography
~~
so
"what are you eating and shooting today" 
?
~~~~~~
of course if you live in the hills of kentucky it's more like
"what are you shooting and eating today"
with a wild turkey as a possible answer
~~
 hey
we used to live on the kentucky border and I love that state
the people
and
their accents
so I can say things like that
~~
can't I
?

  2. i am very much a berry girl - be it blueberry, strawberry, boysenberry, or raspberry. I could just live on all the gorgeous summer fruits and berries out there. unfortunately we get them very rarely out here.

  3. I prefer all the red berries me-self, true story, especially in the form of COBBLERS, which (funny enuf) I first sampled on a white water rafting trip in KENTUCKY!! so they can shoot and eat AND make a killer cobbler.

  7. While I was reading i was eating blackberries, yogurt and bran for breakfast. I am a berrie girl, I love your photos yet once again. I have never taken any photos of fruit and i have never went shooting turkeys. We must live a sheltered life up here in Canada. Take Care my friend, cinner

  8. The close-up of the blueberries make them look totally different...like eyballs...alien eyeballs perhaps? But I could use some freshly picked eyeballs right now.

  13. You know I'm a born and raised Kentucky gal, right? True Story! Some of the accents are funny, though, they seem thicker here in Georgia.

    Small town life there is just that. But, the scenery is amazing. I've been to several states, and Kentucky really is one of the most beautiful!

    Never ate Wild Turkey. Did shoot it, though I prefer Kentucky's Maker's Mark. Smoother. Not a big fan of bourbon or whiskey. Haven't tried any in years...

  17. I love blueberries, too. Mostly because my little girl has blueberry eyes. I swear they are that same lovely, mottled blue.
