Sunday evening photos

Roadies….some of my favorite pictures, and definitely a good way to spend time, both artistically and in the grand scheme of things. Meghan decided we had spent too much time indoors over the weekend and said we were going out, adding, “Grab your camera!”


The best part is, after that, she took me out to dinner too. I love my wife.


Backyard pics

I was at my in-laws’ house and I went out the car to get something. On my way out, I saw these weird bean things growing from one of their trees.

Like peapods or something. Mom-in-law didn’t know what they were and said they had only started appearing on that tree recently.

I liked the layered look they had and the repeating patterns, so I shot a few frames. After some work in the computer, this is what I got. I love it!

Cool, right?

Golden flowers

So many of these posts mention Meghan, which is because so much of the time, when I’m shooting for fun, she’s out with me.

This shot is hers, sorta, she saw it, she had me back the car up on the country road, she even shot it. But she didn’t like her pic, and I saw the photo she wanted in my mind. So I took the camera and got this.

I'm a sucker for pretty flowers.

So any ways, I’d say we split credit on this one…


Just some quick pics on the way upstairs

Had some storms roll through here the other night. The next day, I had to shoot photos of the damage for the paper.

This isn’t about those photos though. It’s just that Meghan wanted to see them. And she needed an AA battery. Whatever. What’s important is that I ended up needing to go back down to the car to get the camera and the battery. It was evening and I do love evening light, so I took a few pictures on the way upstairs. Pretty proud of these for quickies.

Some raindrops on our honeysuckle.

The light above our entryway. Plus some bugs.

A leaf from the same honeysuckle. The veins on these leaves look totally boss.

Street shooting in Gatlinburg

A young girl walking at the head of her family. Shot this while on my honeymoon in Gatlinburg. Could have had a lot of fun street shooting, but I didn’t work it very much and I didn’t get too many keepers. I used to sit around and take pictures of passers-by for hours in Chicago and the camera I have now is about as well-suited to it as any DSLR I could imagine. Guess I’m just lazy. I just feel weird getting shots of strangers, even though that’s kind of what I do for a living.
