I’m interrupting my current series of fall family photo blog posts for a quick kick-off to the Christmas season. I had a lovely time with great friends on Friday night when we visited the Winterlights display at Newfields here in Indianapolis. These photos aren’t perfect (I chose to be a bit more present and wasn’t going to deal with a tripod for optimal photos), but the beauty of the evening was worth documenting. I hope you enjoy and I wish you a very merry Christmas season!
With apologies for my long absence from this blog (teaching has been sucking the life out of me recently!), I am happy to share some recent photos with you! We’ve finally had some springtime weather here in Indy and I was able to take advantage of the sunshine a couple Sundays ago. My friend Steve was passing through Indy and I got to show him some of the sights, including the central canal. Steve is an amazing photographer (see here and here for proof) and he gave me some fun tips on capturing the fountain water in action. Enjoy these shots of springtime in Indiana!
I awoke this past Wednesday to a winter wonderland outside my window. I was almost late to school due to 1.) clearing the snow off my car (it always takes longer than I anticipate) and 2.) taking pictures of the snow covered trees in my apartment parking lot. After work, my sister-in-law called me after driving through the local Eagle Creek Park to let me know that it was breathtaking. I was so glad that I had brought my camera along that day! I headed over her way and we jumped in the car to explore. I think the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy!
Job 37:5-7 (ESV)
he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
6 For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth,’
likewise to the downpour, his mighty downpour.
7 He seals up the hand of every man,
that all men whom he made may know it.
You are starting to wake
And I am laden with the thoughts
Of everything I mean to say
I wish I could tell you,
But I just can’t find the words.

I had a lovely Spring Break day last week at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and 100 Acres practicing manual mode on my camera (ok, I admit, I’ve been lazy and usually just shoot in aperture priority mode, but I’m working on that!) and capturing the beauty of spring in Indiana. Enjoy!
Being on time for things has never been my forte…
A little over a month ago, things got very exciting here in Indianapolis when the Super Bowl came to town. Being a big fan of football, I loved joining in the fun and had a great time seeing the Super Bowl festivities. These pictures are nothing special photographically (am I using that word correctly?) due to my camera’s struggles with low-light, but I thought it would be fun to share these shots anyway to give you a taste of the fun that was had here.
