If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Sunday Snapshot

Sunday Snapshot

You might be a photographer if...

1. When you drive around, your eyes are constantly scanning the area around you for possible backdrops for a photo shoot.

We drove to Texarkana last weekend and I saw somewhere I wanted to stop and take a picture about every 15 miles.

I fought the urge until we actually arrived in T-town and I came upon this old barn.

So I planned a return stop the next day and Ruthie agreed.  It probably had more to do with getting out of the car than agreeing to a 10 minute photo shoot, but I am up for whatever motivation works.

Everything was going great as I was considering my composition and lighting until one very memorable moment.

The silence of the area was interrupted by some very distinct rattling/hissing sounds coming from inside the barn.

Yes the rattlesnakes won and we got the heck out of there pretty quickly.
