February 2018: Color at Share Six | Fort Collins, Colorado Lifestyle and Fine Art Photographer

The February blog circle theme at Share Six is COLOR. I’ve been very busy with clients and rebuilding this website (How do you like it!?), and not shooting for pleasure, otherwise. Thankfully, I made sure to shoot some great, colorful, historic signs along Route 66 in Albuquerque, Gallup, and Grants, NM just a few weeks back. It was hard to curate it down to just six – and, I failed. =)  I am sharing seven, but there will be more sprinkled around my various sites, in case you want to see them. Along with subscribing to my blog posts here, please follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see more of the work I share.

As always, I hope you’ll take the time to link around the full blog circle. You’ll find the next link and details about how to submit your own images to be featured at the bottom of this post.

May 2017: Street at Share Six | Fort Collins Lifestyle and Fine Art Photographer

The May blog circle theme at Share Six is STREET. I hope you’ll take the time to link around the full blog circle (next link at the bottom), and then submit to the Share Six Facebook and/or Instagram pages for a chance to be featured.

When I got serious about my photography journey in the late 80s and early 90s, a great deal of my work was street photography, including people in larger scenes as well as close-up portraits of strangers. For that matter, much of my international travel photography throughout the years has been the same. For whatever reason, I haven’t tended to shoot local street scenes as much in recent years – most likely directly related to having small children. With them, I simply have less time overall, including time to just sit and observe, or to make my way to back alleys or the city at night. Sure, I love to photograph crowds at daytime street parades and street performers, but with children, I am currently less likely to photograph the truly interesting characters on the street. I would love to blog my favorite street shots, hand-picked from over the years, and perhaps I will. However, for this post, I am limiting my collection to my last outing, with the sole goal of street photography. I shot these images on Saturday, July 5, 2014, between 9:30-10:15 pm in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC.

I sincerely appreciate you dropping by to check out my take on STREET. Next in the blog circle is KG Ledbetter Photography. Please link over and see the post Kathy has generated for the theme. For a chance to be featured, please  submit your STREET images to the Share Six Facebook and/or Instagram pages (tag #sharesix and #sharesix_street) by June 5th.

2014.07.04 Takoma Park Independence Day Parade!

It’s one of my favorite days and events of the year! As always, my family and I walked across the line into Maryland this morning to enjoy the delightful and slightly offbeat 125th annual Takoma Park Fourth of July Parade! We sat with many of our wonderful neighbors, caught up, and soaked in the perfect weather. For my part, I also got to give – not one, not two – but THREE new lenses their first test at the parade. So, enjoy the photos for what they are – off-duty, friends and family time, while experimenting with new gear. And HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
