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. ;)
Enjoyed the golden light on High Street last night.
These are a couple more of the photos I took for the Oxford Visitor’s Bureau. I posted a few more earlier, too.
Oh and fun fact, though totally unrelated: I turn 26 tomorrow!
Some of the photos I took for the Oxford Visitor’s Bureau last night at the concert on High Street. I think my first freelance assignment went pretty well. :)
Kyle and I went to Miami University’s Freedom Summer Memorial earlier this afternoon. It’s a lovely little amphitheater with stone benches that are engraved with the chronology of events from that summer.
I would like to look at this and think about how far we have come, but racism is still alive and well in our country. I don’t normally post political things on my blog, but the happenings in Ferguson, MO right now have me extremely sad and angry. We all deserve the right to live in peace. My heart and thoughts are with the family of Mike Brown and the citizens of Ferguson. Keep taking photos and keep recording what is happening on your streets so the world can see the truth.
More shots from the nature trails at the Oxford Community Park, taken today while the sun was shining bright.
Also, the very lovely Dessi has featured some of my work for the Wonder Wednesday feature on her site, Dazzled. Thank you, Dessi!
