Back Alley

The last thing I expected to see, walking home just now, was this girl doing up her hair in the back of some really grungy industrial buildings.

Careful Daddy There’s A Puddle

We were walking this morning in Sonoma County’s newest park, Tolay Lake. The area is stunning!

It’s dedication yesterday was something of a formality, as the 3,400-acre park opened in October 2018 after its master plan was officially approved. It’s accessible via an entrance on Cannon Lane, off Lakeville Highway southeast of Petaluma.

The park currently offers more than 11 miles of multi-use trails crossing grasslands and ridges with views of San Pablo Bay and beyond. Currently many of its trails are closed due to flooding.

However, the wet ground didn’t stop too many people from hiking where they could. This little girl was taking no chances and kept making sure her family was made aware of the puddles.

Daddy Says

We’ve got a wading pool here in Boston called the Frog Pond. (My blog is named after it.) On a hot sunny weekend the place is packed with little people having a wonderful time. This little girl was splashing around happily with Daddy watching on from a distance. I took this photograph just as Daddy came over to her and said they needed to leave.

She was good about it but took a few more dunks before finally getting out and leaving her hat in the pool for daddy to retrieve.

A perfectly straight forward shot of a young lady stretching after a workout. Talk about good conditioning. She positively glows with health!

So often it’s the light that determines the quality of a photograph isn’t it?

This morning while Sarah and I were at the grocery market, I spotted this young lady bagging people’s purchases. Her face was raked by the low early morning light coming through the front windows. By eliminating some of the background clutter in post processing, this was the result. I’m biased of course, but this almost looks like a studio portrait instead of the grab shot it actually is.
