I went to Shady Oak Beach today to take some photos of the lake and enjoy the weather. There were too many people on the beach soI walked over the fishing pier and took some shots there. I really liked how the wind made waves and the water reflected the sun back like mini flash bulbs.
I went for a walk this evening and took many pictures along the way, but I liked this one the best because it just said "summer" to me. I know most people wouldn't use a photo with sun glare on the lens, but the sun shining and the tree lined path just felt so wonderful.
Yesterday I actually forgot to take my camera with me all day. So I was thinking I would just pick 2 today, but then I remembered this photo I took of the flag in central park in Hopkins and decided it should be the photo for yesterday. I really liked the symmetry of the light poles and how the tip of the flag was in mid furl in the breeze.
Break time in the hallway. All the ladies took to the floor when they had a few scenes that they weren't needed on the stage. Soon we had a whole party on the floor. :) In this photo: Simone Perrin, Lauren Ashiem, Tinia Moulder, Timotha Lanae and Laura Rudolf.
tonight I seized the opportunity for an impromptu photo shoot in the dressing room on a 10 minute break. The ladies decided to take a group photo so I took some from the side. shown in photo: Christina Baldwin, Seri Johnson, Timotha Lanae, Heather Lindell, Tinia Moulder, Simone Perrin. Also in photo but not seen at this angle: Molly Sue McDonald, Kersten Rodau, Lauren Ashiem.
today we started tech for HMS Pinafore and I was amazed at the fasteners in the petty-coats and costumes for the ladies. This photo is just a petty-coat with a built in bustle that has hooks, snaps, and a zipper. I think I shall call this "Warning: no emergency exit!"
I stopped at the little lake and road side park on Shady Oak Rd between hwy7 and main st Hopkins to take some pictures of the lake in the sunlight and came across a duck "couple" sunning on the shore but they got scared off when I walked up and they took off swimming into the lake. I snapped pictures as fast as I could and I liked the ripples in the water in this one and the way the water reflected the greenery like glass.
We went for a nice bike ride through Baker Park Reserve. Lightening (Alaskan husky) Loves to run and she was a trooper on our 8 mile ride. I should add I was riding my bike behind them while taking the picture so if you look closely at the bottom edge you can see the ground movement.
My friend Sara does a regular installment on her blog called "I can fit in there" and tonight got to be her photographer so the photo I chose is "there are 3 bodies in the window seat tonight" on the set of Arsenic and Old Lace.
