“Live.  Laugh.  Autumn” © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott I did a portrait/engagement session with a beautiful couple yesterday, and it was a delight.

Spring Shopping © 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott This little squirrel is out doing his spring shopping after a long winter. He and I stared at each other for a while as I took a number of photos. I used a combination of new things for this photo, including Sony’s new a73 (my […] [Read more...]
