Bellefontaine

Monday morning greetings from Owensboro, Kentucky!

We’ll I’ve got one more crazy week of shoots and then it looks like things will be slowing down for the Christmas holiday season as it always does! I’ll push through this week and then from there it will be time to catch up with all the things that I’ve needed to get done and haven’t had time for these past five months! There’s a lot of little things that take a lot of time like burning discs of the jobs that I’ve been doing of late. It’s probably something that will take a number of days since I’ll be burning off about three terabytes of images 25 gigabytes at a time!!!! There’s a number of other things that I need to get done before we start with 2015 in about three weeks!!! Fun, fun, fun!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

On a recent trip down to St. Louis, we were able to get over to the Bellefontaine Cemetery to shoot a little personal photography. It’s not like visiting cemeteries is something that I do often, but when you come across a historic one like Bellefontaine, it’s worth a visit! As a photographer, some of the things that excite me are seeing the architecture and also the design elements at a place like this. There’s lots of old school influences and history going on and some of the things that you’ll see that aren’t done that way anymore. I’m a detail person, so when I see little details in how something was done or presented, it makes for a lot of great photos!

Here’s a few of my snaps from an afternoon spent at the Bellefontaine Cemetery!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Missouri Botanical Gardens

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!

Another week of summer has rolled along and we’ve got just a few more weeks before Labor Day weekend and the unofficial end of summer! This summer has really gone so fast and I’m wishing that it would have lasted a little longer! Oh well, we’ll all just have to enjoy it while it lasts!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favorite places to shoot photos here in the Midwest is the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis. It’s one of those places that I’ve been to many times, so the fun challenge for me is to come up with different ways to shoot what’s there. I really do like a challenge like that because it can be something as simple as having the light hit the subject in a different way then when you photographed it the last time! Being at the gardens through out the year can also change the way that the gardens looks with flowers and plants blooming at different times durning that year. For me, there is a serenity that happens at the gardens and being able to walk around and see how things look and then be inspired to create a photograph is something that I’d like to do for a very long time!!! I know what I’ll be doing when I retire!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a few of my snaps from a day spent at the Missouri Botanical Gardens!

Two more weeks of summer are out there, so let’s all enjoy it while it’s here!!!! Thanks as always for checking out my work and have a great week to come!!!

Sculpture Park

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!!

Hopefully for my friends here in the USA you were able to have a safe and wonderful 4th of July weekend! It’s always nice to have a bit of a break and get a few days off to spend some time with family and friends!

I was able to get out of town for a couple of days and make a quick trip over to Kansas City. It’s one of those cities that I’ve been to before, but it’s been a number of years and I didn’t really remember too much about KC. I knew that we had a great time, so it was easy to want to go back and check it out again! Besides getting lots of great food and some incredible barbecue, we also had the chance to get out and see some of the city and all that it has to offer! One of those spots that we got to check out was Sculpture Park at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The thing that’s really fun about Sculpture Park is that it’s all outside and you can walk around and right up to each piece of art!!!!

Here’s a few of my snaps from a day spent at Sculpture Park!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!

Hannibal, Mo. and a Sunday drive!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!!!!

I remember as a kid when we as a family would hop in the car on a Sunday afternoon and take a nice “Sunday drive”. Back 40 years ago, gas was .30 cents a gallon and didn’t require a call to the banker to get a loan to fill up the car. You were able to go out and have a nice drive in the country for a couple of bucks and everyone had a great time! We can still take those drives on a Sunday afternoon today, but maybe not as often as we did when I was a kid!

We had another beautiful weekend’s weather here in Peoria, so we decided to take advantage of it and take a nice Sunday drive! We ended up down the road in Hannibal, Mo. and it’s one of those great Mississippi River towns! They have a great little downtown and it’s fun to walk around and check everything out!

Here’s a few of my shots from an afternoon spent in Hannibal, Mo.!!!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!

Busch Stadium in STL

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!

Wow, the weather this past weekend in Peoria and St. Louis was outstanding! We had some rain and a wonderful Canadian cold front that pushed all of the heat and humidity out of the area. The temps were in the mid 70’s and it could have been nicer! We were able to get out of Peoria for a much needed weekend of R & R in St. Louis and it was great. It had been a couple of years since we’d been to a Cardinal game and the weather was perfect on Saturday night, so we grabbed some tickets and made a night of it! There are few stadiums that offer such a beautiful background as Busch Stadium and seeing the city of St. Louis and the Arch as the view is wonderful!!!!

I was able to get a great panoramic shot of the stadium and the city and that’s what I’m sharing with you today!

I hope that you have a wonderful week to come and thanks as always for checking out my work!

PS, Being a Cubs fan and having my horrible team hopelessly out of the playoffs, I didn’t shed to big of a tear when the Cardinals lost the game! he-he-he!!!!!!
