This is a photo I took and decided to add some words to go with it, I don’t do this very often but thought it was fitting.
Took a walk for a 48 mile change that I’m doing in September for military vets to help with PTSD and suicide prevention. I have 8.48 miles in so far so I have a few to go, but not to bad for being 3 days in…I’ll keep chugging along.
Today I did 5.29 miles and did a long walk around the a big block in town, so I decided to take some photos during my walk.
I love taking black and white photos and I can walk the same path every day and find something new to take a photo of that catches my eye.
Today I went down to Milwaukee to work for the day; and on the way to lunch I was able to stop at a bridge and take a couple shots of the Milwaukee area, that is Milwaukee Wisconsin.
In the second photo I captured a few people enjoying the beautiful day and taking kayaks out.
Milwaukee was recently voted one of the ugliest cities, so I think it is nice to show the nice side of the city.
The other day I shared a little nostalgia with a poem, so today I thought I would share a little photo nostalgia. I took this photo in 2017 at a little piece of the Wolf River in Wisconsin….my home state.
Flowers beyond reach in a field surround by the city streets,
a fence guards them
Guards then from the urban sprawl
Wild they grow
Far from trampling feet
Let them grow beyond this fence
Let their beauty show
I was driving to the store yesterday and just thought I should take a picture of this salvage area near our house. I drive by this place a lot and have always had a fascination with industrial sites for photos.
I only had my phone with me and had to park across the street but I thought this turned out pretty good.
I took part of the day off from work and decided to just take a drive with no particular destination and take some random photos…here is what I found.
A little color in a moment of darkness
Well, I took a day off from work and just did what I wanted. That included taking some photos, writing and visiting my beautiful wife at work to have lunch with her.
It was so relaxing, I think we all need a day where we just do that for ourselves…just a creative day, whatever you want to create.
So I started my creative day by heading down to a place called Lusk Park in Appleton. It was nice and relaxing and I just took some photos and wrote the poem I posted earlier. Here are some photos from there…it was a monotone kind of day so I did most of my photos in some form of monotone.
After the Park I went and had some lunch with my wife…Jersey Mike’s Subs….yum, my favorite sub place.
Where she works is near the Fox River so I decided to walk down some steps to see what I could find down there on the Fox Trot Trail.
It was a wonderful day even though it was pretty windy…so if you get the chance to take just a day for yourself, do it. It is some of the best therapy money can’t buy.
I have created another page that showcases color photography. I decided to do this as well because some things shine so much better then black and white and need that splash. My photography is going to start becoming more predominant in my work; it is my first passion.
The photo below is a walk I took yesterday in a town called Oshkosh…I know most are thinking of Oshkosh B’Gosh…lol.
I decided to blend some color with the black and white, give the splash of color to the photo…blue is my favorite color so I added a splash of blue.
