About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. Smiley Richard is lovely, and makes a nice change, but I have to say there’s something absolutely dreamy about the second one, especially with your sepia toned edit- nice work!

  2. *gulp, thud!* aren’t they just pure loveliness! Isn’t he just pure loveliness! REALLY REALLY REALLY love that second one!

  3. I,ve used the cheeky grin as my wallpaper on my new laptop. It’s Richard reacting to photographer who said just park your bum there knowing what he would have to do with those long legs.

  4. I had to come back and share this tidbit with you all!!! My 90yo Mother just finished reading North and South on her nook. She said, “This would make a great movie!” I immediately went to NF and q’d it up! At a point in the movie JT/RA is angry and his head fills my 52″ TV screen and he’s staring out at the world. Mother says “They shouldn’t be allowed to show his face and those eyes for more than 10 seconds at a whack! He’ll either melt the glass on the TV or give old ladies like me vapors!!!!” I cracked up!

      • Thank goodness for that! As a woman of a certain age, as the French put it, i’m so glad I don’t have to miss out on all the fun. I have never had an attack of “the vapors,” but have indeed been gobsmacked by the Armitage Effect. How incredibly dull things would be if I had not found NS.
