Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!
Weâ€™re winding things down for 2017 and weâ€™ve got a couple more weeks here in town before we shut it down for the rest of the year. Itâ€™s amazing how fast this year has flown by with all of the different shoots and locations that we were at around the country. Itâ€™s never too upsetting to have things slowing down a bit at this time of the year and it allows us to get a bunch of year-end stuff done so that when we start 2018, weâ€™re caught up with everything and are ready to go! Itâ€™s nice having the desk all cleaned up and all the appropriate paperwork filed and boxed up!!!
On my trip out to Southern New Mexico over the Thanksgiving week, I was able to get out and shoot photos everyday which always makes me very happy! One of my photography spots that I was able to visit on this trip was the El Paso Desert Botanical Gardens. Itâ€™s not as huge of a garden as some of the other ones that Jan and I have shot at around the country, but itâ€™s a very nice place thatâ€™s incredibly tranquil and peaceful. There are a number of fountains in the park, so the sound of running water in the desert is a very calming presence in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Now at this time of the year, itâ€™s a little harder to find flowering plants and trees since itâ€™s out of season, but there still were some and thatâ€™s where the challenge is finding some things to shoot! All and all I had a great few hours walking around the gardens listening to the running water and grabbing a few snaps!
Hereâ€™s a couple of my photos from a morning spent at the El Paso Desert Botanical Gardens.
Itâ€™s time for us to get rocking on all of the last-minute yearend things that we need to get done! We hope that youâ€™re going to have a great week and thanks for taking the time to check out our work!
Kev and Jan
