Toward the end of May, I was returning from a grocery trip when I noticed a double rainbow over the lake. I got a few photos with my mobile phone, but I wanted to make a few images with professional equipment.

Quickly, I rushed upstairs, grabbed my gear, and ran to the lake. The weather changed a lot by the time I got there, but I was still pleased with the results.

A few days passed, and the weather was windy and hazy during the day. I spent a little time walking around and made a few more images I was happy with.

This is Beans!

On May 29th, I walked over to our urban vegetable garden and (thankfully) I took my camera equipment with me. This little guy was so adorable and a lot of fun to photograph!

Springtime in Edgewater

It’s spring! It’s springtime in Edgewater. This time of year is my favorite, and it felt good to walk around making photos.

Spring is my favorite season, and I wanted to make a point of creating a few photographs from the lakefront before it was too late. Besides being relaxing and calming, these images will be a nice addition to my ongoing Foster Beach project.

This is Milo! Sure, it’s obvious he isn’t a tree. But this little guy was too cool not to photograph and share with the world.
