The World: Week Five

I spent my birthday with the Ultras, some of my favorite people here in Tulsa. I headed back to the Driller’s stadium for the farewell game of the Tulsa Athletics. 

Here are some images from our time together. 

As always thanks for stoping by.

Love,

Nikki

Time is moving faster and the air is getting hotter. This week has been one of big things for me. I rode in a helicopter, I shot a gun for the first time and I heard one of my favorite bands, the Avett Brothers, live. 

Portraits, music festivals and gun safety videos filled my week. I decided to only post photos from G Fest, a country music festival in Muskogee. I’m not a big country music fan, but I love the way Oklahoma does country. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Love,

Week three is in the books here in Tulsa. I no longer have to use my GPS to get to or from the office or the dog park. So you could say I’m getting the hang of it. Here are some selects from this week. I am so very happy to have been able to work on the revival of the backyard music series with my photo editor John Clanton. Music and video are two of my favorite things so when I get to combine them I’m as happy as can be. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Love,

Nikki
