Many moons ago…one to be exact, because the date on the photo album is October 12…my lovely assistant and I headed out to Indian Springs State Park to get the backup camera ready for the wedding the following weekend. I had a second camera body that had not been set up yet, and my assistant needed to get comfortable using this camera and taking video with it.
Well, as you probably know from my last blog, my assistant is my beautiful daughter. So here she is…
Yep…that’s her. The blurry vision behind the tree looking at me with a “Seriously…you’re gonna take a picture of me now?!” kind of look. That’s Kat…my lovely teenage assistant. She’s learning a bit about photography, and she has a pretty good eye for it. She also loves vlogging and script writing. Her YouTube name is Enderchick77, so be on the lookout for some videos. And if you happen to be in a store somewhere and see “Enderchick77 was here”, know that she was there. As personalities go, we are probably polar opposites. She is outgoing, full of energy, and quite the social butterfly. She’s more like her father in that she takes life as it comes. My son and I are the planners of the family.
(By the way…my son is jwcato24gaming on YouTube. He does MineCraft videos with his friends…The Server Guys. He and his friend, Tyler…aka TheFullRunThrough…started The Server Guys many, many moons ago…as in more than one.)

And so…back to the focus of this blog…my assistant and our day at Indian Springs State Park.
When we arrived at Indian Springs State Park, there was a wedding going on in the pavilion. This meant we had to work our way around without disturbing the ceremony. We took the long way around, going from the parking lot, back up around the park store, and over to the bridge to get to the stream.
We set up at the top of the hill and took some video and pictures, and then we headed down to the water. Being the brave photographers that we are, we worked our way out into the middle of the stream and got some great photos.
And I got several candid shots of Kat.
We had a lovely afternoon, got the camera set up, and….only fell in the water once. But the camera didn’t get wet! Kat on the other hand…well…
So, that’s the story of my lovely assistant, Kat (Enderchick77), and our day at Indian Springs State Park.
