One more from the impromptu fountain shoot earlier with Kim and her precious daughter. I was especially happy with this shot and wanted it to stand alone.
I took my camera uptown earlier today and was sitting near the fountain where this adorable little girl was playing in the water. Her mother (hi, Kim!) saw me sitting there and was kind enough to invite me to snap some shots.
I love how the kindness of strangers can result in impromptu shoots like this. :)
This beautiful pup caught my eye in the parking lot of Kroger. As I took his photo, a woman walked by and commented on how it looked like he was posing for me.
(I always get nervous when I see dogs riding in the beds of trucks.)
Handing out pinwheels. The woman in the second photo ended up giving me one. :)
The sun had started to set at this point so I used a higher ISO, hence the grain. I just really loved the colors in these.
Some more of my favorite photos from last night’s pig roast uptown.
Kyle was awesome and bought me my first telephoto zoom lens! I went uptown where the music festival/annual pig roast was being held in order to try it out.
This little guy was getting his face painted like a ninja turtle. I like how the light behind him lit up the outline of his cheek.
I had my second assignment with the Oxford Visitor’s Bureau last night. I took photos of the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company's presentation of Macbeth, as well as the children's art festival that took place beforehand.
Pink house on Miami University campus. Oxford, OH.
Explored some more of the Western Campus at Miami University and found this beautiful cobblestone bridge and pond.
It’s early Friday morning and the sky’s threatening rain. We’re in the kitchen listening to the thunder.
A couple more photos from last week’s trip to the Oxford Community Park nature trails.
Sidenote: I just received some awesome news. I’ve been hired as a writer for Photojojo!
Railroad tracks on Spring Street. Oxford, OH.
I love the sound of the train at night.
Walking down Main Street, Kyle and I passed this orange cat bathing himself on someone’s porch. I asked him to please “look up” and he did immediately, staring straight at the camera until I put it down and said, “Thank you.” He relaxed and watched us walk away, then went back to bathing.
After the Freedom Summer tour earlier this afternoon at Miami University, Kyle and I walked around a bit to explore the Western Campus. I really loved the cobblestone bridge (partly hidden in the second shot).
Also, Happy “Gave Birth” Day to my mother! She brought me into this world 26 years ago today. ;)
