A Weekend in Indy - Only a Few Images

  We went up to Indy for my half marathon, then Sunday we went to the zoo. I got a few images throughout the weekend, but I'm only going to post the ones I am very pleased with. 
   The first few are of the Indianapolis State Building and the monument:

  The others are from the zoo, I hate the windows but I hate the fencing and bars more. Here are a few of my favorites.

Some Cars are Just Sexy........... Period

  I am realizing that I most likely won't get much if any business with people, but right now my time is kind of filled up with a son and running so I am just going to enjoying photography and keep on learning. I've got to two little cruise ins since the Frog Follies and so far I've gotten quite a few images that I really like, and I am playing with the saturation control to make these cars stand out even more.

I don't normally shoot object, let alone vehicles but classics are definitely something totally different, they are sexy and full of power. I could shoot hundreds of these cars without ever getting tired.

Frog Follies 2013

   First time in years since I've been back to the Frog Follies, mainly due to how freaking hot it is but this time I was on a mission. Sadly due to having my mom, my son, Cameron and Jared with me I was kind of rushed through and only saw a fraction of the cars there in the span of the 2 hours but it was hot and there wasn't a cloud in the sky so I am not too unhappy about leaving around noon. Anyways I have about half of the images finished, here are just a few of my favorites:

  I need to do some research so I can actually know what vehicles I am taking photos of, but they were gorgeous and the sun really shined on them.

Around the House - Day 1 - 08/062013

  So I have begun my daily assignments of using my camera everyday, shooting images of strange or everyday average subjects. I decided to go around the house last night, though my house is relatively boring compared to others I still aimed for a few images of sorts. Right now, the one thing I really need to work on is creativity and composition and I think working with my camera everyday will help.
  Jax just chilling on the floor last night.
 My two favorite alcoholic beverages below

  The coat hanger out in the garage that we don't ever use, many times I thought about dusting it off but now I am glad I didn't.

 Little guy was trying to climb up on the entertainment center, hopefully by the time he would be able to, he'll understand not too.
Romeo was very curious of Dorian's foot, Romeo is such a sweetie. 
 Fixing some meat I decided to shoot some images, just goofing off really. Wasn't able to capture the image I wanted, more detail in the bubbly grease and the steam rising.

 And my husband being.......... a guy..

Images of my first buck

  A few nights ago, while out on the four wheeler going around on our property I spotted a buck whose antlers were growing. I was pretty excited even with the sun almost down, I had to up the ISO to 3200 just to get enough lighting, which added some noise to the images.  I believe he comes to our property often, but not enough to predict when he will come so I am thinking of spreading some buck feed around hoping to attract him, I really hope he comes around during Fall and Winter, maybe I'll finally get one of those post card images of a large buck standing proud who knows. There was a doe with him, but I am not sure if he is a yearling still hanging around his mom or if they've just kind of partnered up this Summer.... usually bucks will hang with other bucks during Summer and Spring while the females will hang out with other females. Anyways, here are some of my images that I was able to soften and lighten up just a bit without ruining the image itself.

The Vanderburgh County 4H Fair

  So we went to the fair the other weekend, about 2 weeks ago I guess and I took some images. Couldn't take as many as I wanted, we got there just as the sun was going down so I couldn't really use my flash without annoying people and that sucks. I did get images of the animals there, well not the horses as we didn't see them until we were leaving and everyone was in a hurry, and the horses really just wanted to be petted and not have some bright flash blinding them.
  Here are a few of the images I shot.

Along My Running Routes

   Pretty soon I am going to have to charge my P&S so I can take it along on runs, because I come across a lot of really fantastic sights that I should photograph. Here are just a few along some of my routes.

  I will try to post whenever I take these images, rather than waiting weeks and months before doing so. I really need to start being as devoted to my photography blog as I am to my running blog.
