I believe ACTION SHOTS can change the world, one smile at a time!
If you can jump, hop, leap, fly, bounce, skip, hula, or simply move, then you can do some ACTION!
Don't be shy, you can do it! Old or young, girl or boy, skinny or fat, athletic or lazy - just JUMP...and make sure you take a picture ;)
Well, I don't know about everyone else, but I had a fan-freakin'-tabulous weekend! It was the epitome of perfect Autumn weather here in Colorado, and I got to enjoy it in the mountains not once, but TWICE, in the course of 3 days. Perfection, I tell, perfection!
And you know I represented the Cause on both occasions - so sit back and enjoy some Rocky Mountain action :)
Yay for weddings ACTION!
The long awaited Bannister-Hurley wedding took place this weekend at the beautiful Lower Lake Ranch in Pine, Colorado. Sadly, I didn't get the bride & groom in action (note to self: don't forget to charge the camera battery, dummy), but I did nab these fun shots of Kevin & Whit on the way to the reception :)
Yay for mini-vacas ACTION!
But WAIT! It's not over yet...a fairly impromptu mini-vaca also took place this weekend (thanks to Theresa & Annie, two lovely ladies I'm proud to call my friends). We got to stay at a gorgeous (HUGE) house just outside of Breckenridge, Colorado and we got all the fun that came with a drive home via I-285 during the peak of the aspen tree changes!
So, did I mention perfection?!? I sure hope everyone else had an awesome weekend, too - looking forward to seeing your action shots soon :)
Happy weekend to all my lovely peeps! I trust everyone had a fine Friday, yes? As I mentioned in yesterday's post, last night we celebrated AB & Timmy's long awaited wedding, so it seems only fitting to carry on with the pair theme today. Be it a couple in love or besties just having fun, life seems more complete when you've got yourself a good partner to share in the action :)
This is love ACTION!
Let's start in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where we have Angelique's shot. Taken at the wedding of pals Mark & Evelyn, we can certainly see that this fun couple has an exciting future ahead of them!
Day at the park ACTION!
Moving on to Minsk, Belarus, where we see Hanna's shot of pals in the park. Who needs a picnic when you've got such great action?!
Who do you love ACTION!
Wrapping it up in West Sussex, England, where we find Nat's sunset shot - it looks like a beautiful end to what I hope was a beautiful day.
Hope everyone has a fabu Saturday! I'm heading into the hills for a mini-mountain retreat with friends. Fingers crossed we can score some fall foliage action :)
Congratulations to us! We've made it to yet another weekend! I can't complain too much as it's been a pretty good week for me, but that doesn't mean I'm not super stoked for the upcoming days off...or for today's celebratory action :)

First day of Fall, and it feels more like winter here in Colorado. I was ready for Summer to hit the road, but I will be none too pleased if I miss out on my beloved Autumn and go straight into the dreaded cold season. BUT, I won't dwell...instead I'll enjoy the lovely action from toady's shots and continue on my day with a smile :)

And just like that, we find ourselves at yet another Monday. I trust everyone had a lovely weekend hmmm?
