    Things That Make You Go AHHHH

    2014 - 06.19

    One of my photo passions is shooting cars, and not just any ole cars. I love the classics in all stages of wear and that includes some of the new introductions that are sure to be classics. My friend just got himself a beautiful car and was kind enough to let me shoot with him and experiment with lighting. It’s a totally new area for me, but boy howdy, does it offer some great new ideas!

    Magnolia Macrophylla

    2014 - 06.08

    The Big Leaf Magnolia outshines most everything else in the yard this time of year, and it’s not just its location that draws such attention. No, it’s the huge, showy, white blossoms that command front and center stage. I often stand beneath the two foot long leaves and gaze at the undersides of the buds in their infant to senior stages. Today, the rains came as I stood under her behemoth elegance and I listened as drops danced and played on leaves like water slides until they finally made their way to the ground. One day of full blossom is all that she gives her creamy white stars but pure elegance could never last longer than one sunrise to one sunset. 

    The Heart Of Africa

    2014 - 06.01

    I feel so blessed to have the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium so close to my neighborhood and, the newest addition is finally open. The Heart Of Africa is a 43 acre African savannah housing zebra, giraffes, lions, wildebeests, gazelles, and an assortment of other African wildlife. The crowds overflowed into the newest exhibit which is good for the zoo but sometimes trying to the photographer. None-the-less, the trip was worth while and a huge success story for the zoo and the visitors. I can’t wait to get back and get to know the animals as they adapt to their Columbus/Africa home.
