Monday morning New Mexico greetings to one and all!
I’m out here in New Mexico this week spending some time with my folks. It’s always treasured to be able to do this and spend this time with them!
Jan and I had a fun shoot his past week. We were given an opportunity that most people never get to experience. This year is the 135 year of the Peoria Public Library and they are having a fundraiser in the middle of October to help supplement the public funding that they receive. As part of this fundraiser, we were asked to shoot some photos from the top of the Commerce Bank building in downtown Peoria showing the city of Peoria in a unique perspective. Part of the adventure was getting to the top of the building and it involves a series of three spiral staircases that are extremely tight and also very steep. The other fun is also getting all the camera gear up these staircases as well!
We had a great night to shoot the photos and that’s about 90% of the battle when it comes to this type of work! We did have one other challenge and that was the lights that are pointed at the top of the building and they were causing some major lens flare in the cameras for some of the photos! We were able to work around these challenges and came away with some interesting shots of the city!
Here’s a few of the photos that Jan and I got of downtown Peoria and it’s a good looking city indeed!!!!
Thanks as always for checking out our work and we hope that you have a great week to come!
Kev and Jan
