I spent this past weekend with my camera in tow. Two weeks was entirely too long to not shoot. Saturday I went to the zoo by myself but I wasn’t alone. My childhood best friend who lives in the Los Angeles area was on the phone with me. We have a phone date every 4 weeks, most of the time. So while we talked and got caught up, I walked the zoo and took pictures of the animals.
And because it is the South, there is also a cemetery. I’ve been here nearly two years and I still don’t quite get the whole random cemetery thing. My first blog about random cemeteries was written during my first year.
Sunday was a fun family day, everyone doing what they love to do. We went to Lebanon so Isabel could attend some dance workshops. On our way we passed a few old, rusted out classic cars and thought what great photographs those would be! We got her there and watched her for awhile and then went back to those cars.
Behind the lot the cars were parked on was an open field where a silo sat with ivy growing around it. The residents of the farm were kind enough to let us wander around. All was perfect until I found a stow away in the car when we left… A TICK! Yeah…. I pretty much FREAKED out! (No pictures of that guy… sorry….)
We checked back in at the dance workshops to see how things were going and everyone looked like they were learning a lot and having a great time. So off we went on our next little adventure. I love architectural photography and the square in Lebanon is particularly quaint. No better place to work on my skill. On our way, we came across an old John Deere tractor…an MT… just like the one he had as a boy.
Now to the square…
Sunset was near and dance was just about over… at least for her… But I couldn’t leave without getting a few shots. Just to clarify, these aren’t of my daughter, rather, just part of the group on the whole. If you are new to partner dancing, this style is called West Coast Swing. It is a social dance as compared to a more formal ballroom style. You can get information about local WCS dance events on facebook: Lebanonswings Dance.
