Sunset Run Fundraiser ~ Alamogordo, NM...



Alamo Shape hosted the Sunset Run yesterday in Alamogordo.  This was a Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk to benefit numerous animal rescue operations in the area.  Animal Village N.M., Kitty City, Tularosa Animal Rescue, among others.  Many thanks also to Petroclyps of Alamogordo for giving so much of their time and effort to this event...What a great time we had!

Pet portraits offered for donations to Animal Village N.M.   Here's a few of the participants priceless mug shots!


Here's Rosemarie Ferrara (right) of Alamo Shape.  She is joined by two volunteers from Animal Village N.M. who grabbed a couple adoptable dogs and joined in on the fun!



Thanks to everyone who participated.  We'll be back next year for more memories captured of the pets we love so much.  If you're looking for a pet, please stop by any of the animal rescue shelters in our area.  These animals KNOW they are special and love you back for giving them forever homes...


Hope to see everyone there next year!  Thanks for helping out!

The Good Ole Days....


Maybe it's just because I'm getting older, but what ever happened to just going outside and having fun?

Well, that art form isn't dead....yet.  This blog is for photographers, parents, and friends of the "little
people" (kids)...


Playing in the horse's water tank or any other spontaneous event
can be a great time just to grab your
camera and get some purely candid shots.  Unrehearsed, not posed, just
plain FUN!


These types of candid shots can be framed together to make a great wall hanging, or 
you can have multiple mounted canvas' made to illustrate the sequence. 


Oh...and the fun doesn't cost a thing!
