I had a couple who hired me to shoot their daughter with her chickens.

Right?! Ha!

She's wanting to sell eggs in the Kids' area of the local farmer's market and had to have a photo. They wanted to pay, of course.

I shot her and her chicken for free, of course. (I have a heart... despite my posts to the contrary.)

I go barefooted in Winter, because I don't like shoes. Don't judge me. I live in GA. *grin*

And then... afterward... I shot the rooster. Just on a lark.

I was already there. *grin*

Turns out... it fits the challenge topic perfectly.

Or... at least... I think it does.

We shall see.

He was actually just crowing. In mid afternoon.

The neighbors live maybe... thirty feet away... They live in the city.

I wondered what the neighbors say... and asked my client (It's totally legal to have chickens, but not roosters).

The neighbors have not commented.

I'd be okay with chickens, I think... if I lived in the city... not sure if I'd love being told... anything... by a rooster, if I were a "city gal"... but not sure that I wouldn't be either. I've never been anyone other than... welll... me. *grin*

IF I lived in the city.

But... I don't.


And... I hope she does very well with her egg sales. The photos of her and her chicken are charming, I think.

I might be prejudiced.


The really fun thing about my title is... that the girl's 2-year-old brother is named Fox.

Makes me smile at my title every time. :D
