There’s a story that goes with this image revealing how far a photographer might go for the shot. DH pulled over into a safe spot, I jumped out and took a few shots including this one but I wanted to get more of this old barn so I cautiously walked up the two lane road, which had very little in the way of a shoulder for me to stand on, to try for another angle. I couldn’t step off the shoulder and into the grass – which I have done before for some roadside shots – either because there were weeds up to my knees and they went straight down into a deep ditch.
And then I noticed this horrible smell. I looked down and saw what looked like part of a dead deer in the brackish water and weeds. Time to go!!!
(Upon re-reading this post I realized what I did by walking on the narrow shoulder was not too bright. There is no photo out there worth getting hurt for. I will never attempt something like this again and neither should you)
Amazing how food trucks and the variety of foods they offer are multiplying. The difficulty is finding the one you want when you want it. They have a tendency to move around what with those wheels and all 😉
From the looks of these two, I’d say it’s all in the footwork and the wrists. Photos taken at the Olentangy Summer Blast.
These photos were taken at the Olentangy Summer Blast, a local high school annual event. I’ve learned a couple of other things from photographing fireworks at the OSB (see my tip post here) firework displays are erratic. You never know how high, low, wide or what shape a blast will be. It helps to have a vantage point that will allow you to capture the entirety of the exploding rockets if at all possible. In my case, I had nowhere to back up to in order to get a better spot to capture a wider range of the fireworks without being on someones private property… and they had warning tape stretched across their yard.
Have a happy 4th of July and be considerate of pets and people that don’t take well to fireworks.
