Roma and I just pulled in from a visit to our daughter Kandi’s house in Camarillo. She and her husband Rusty have a beautiful ranch there. When we go down, I just stay around their place and snap pictures of everything that gets in my way.
It was raining a little bit on this trip and giving new life to the flowers, birds, and even six new colts in the last three days.
We took a bunch of pictures of one colt that looked so disjointed, but he runs, kicks, plays and bucks with no problems. It’s amazing. Look at the picture of his legs going in different directions. He never falls down. He looks like he’s on stilts.
I also shot some pictures of Kandi jumping, breaking and training her horses for the competitive field. To see more of her ranch and her work, click here.
Kandi also had an old picture of Roma and we took a picture of it to try and reproduce. The picture was taken when she was 17-years-old. A photographer met her at the Bishop Bank of America where she worked when I met her. He asked her to go pose for some portraits down by the Bishop canal. Roma had the picture stored away and gave it to Kandi a while back. It’s a great photo.
We found some colorful birds around the house as well. One is a robin and the other looks to be a house finch. In the photo of the finch, see if you can find the other bird. It’s hidden in there somewhere.
I hope these photos make a great day for all of you.
