A late night portrait of a fireman as he and his crew prepare to deal with an electrical fire. Taken in my neighborhood at around 1:30am.

On our last day in Las Vegas my family and I had to stop in to see “The World’s Largest Gift Shop” for ourselves. It was very nice and very overwhelming! My kids were particularly interested in all of the wonderful handmade Native American souvenirs available. I personally loved the big bold signs outside that completely draw you in, even from far down the street. As I walked around the store the experience was bitter sweet because, I knew it was my last day in this beautiful, chaotic city. Las Vegas did leave an major impression on me. I enjoyed myself so much that now I’ve even added Vegas to my short list of places I’d like to move to. To be totally honest, I really hate I have to go back to my boring reality…I pray that I can make a move very soon because, there is so much more in this world to be explored and enjoyed! This trip reinforced that belief. Until then…
Halloween in downtown Columbus, 2014. Lots of kids, people, costumes, candy, fun, food, a 5k race, and good music!
It’s that time of the year again already! Fall means the county fair, and I love going! I try to take my kids every time it’s in town and this past weekend we were able to go once again. The weather was nice and we had a really good time. Below are a few of the many pictures I took while there.

Here’s another image taken from my March post on bike riding, plus a group of men riding bikes similar to the big wheels toys we use to ride as children, and how much fun it can be.
There’s something about a bike that makes you feel carefree, like a kid again. These gentlemen all experienced this sense of nostalgia as they rode bikes up and down the city’s dark streets. I was fortunate enough to be present with my camera to capture a few fun moments.
Just another random shot taken as a low light test.
Hello once again everyone! Last night I went out on a very fun photo excursion with my aunt for the first time in downtown Columbus. It was very cold, about 43 degrees, and the wind was whipping hard. There weren’t as many people out as usual but, there were a group of drummers and singers out performing on the stage that sits right in the middle of downtown. They were singing Christmas songs, and imporvisiong instrumentals. Among the few people out enjoying the music as well as the atmosphere were 2 very cool hula hoopers. Pictured here is the second hula hooper. I found her to be interesting because, she was able to continuously hula hoop for about 20-25 minutes despite the freezing temperatures that continued to drop as the sun disappeared. I’ll try to post pics of the first hooper later as she was the one who performed the most tricks and proved her endurance by hooping to the music for hours, even well into the night.
Hello everyone. Unfortunately I’ve been sick all week with the flu, and today I only feel slightly better but, I wanted to share a pic I shot while at the city fair last month. Of course I shot many pics and I will share more over time but for now I need to go take more meds and rest. Peace.
