Fourth of July, Fireworks, and Baseball

So the Cowboy Boyfriend and I took our 12 year old grandson and his best friend/siamese twin to the local baseball game and fireworks show…..

reserved box seats behind the catcher                             $40.00

hotdogs, drinks, pretzels, candy                                        $70.00

wrist bands so they could spend the ENTIRE

evening in the bounce houses and pitchers cage

instead of watching the baseball game                              $10.00

two exhausted, but very happy, 12 year olds                      Priceless

Happy Fourth of July

I follow a number of Facebook pages, but my very favorite one is Michael Stokes Photography. I use a lot of his pictures in my posts.




Michael Stokes is a Los Angeles based Photographer, originally from Berkley, California.  Michael moved to LA in 1983 where he studied and swam on the Santa Monica College Swim team.  Michael graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a BA in Fine Arts with an emphasis on film and photography. However, he left his artistic talents behind and began a career in real estate. In 2005 he left his very successful real estate career to focus on his interest in photography.  Since his re-introduction to the art of photography Michael has been published in many magazines, clothing campaigns and a number of photographic anthologies.  Despite the amount of time spent on photography Michael manages to compete as a United States Masters Swimmer. He swims 3,500 – 7,000 meters a day, 6 days a week. In 2008. Michael was ranked in the top 10 in the nation for the 1500 meter race.

Michael manages to capture the best of the male form in his work. He obviously likes sports…
