Project 52: Depth

I am a couple day behind on project 52, so look out for two posts this week!  Week five’s theme was depth.  I decided to go with a lack of depth for the photo.  The weather has been so cold, so I decided to go with a little hope for spring.  Flowers in the winter help give us a taste of spring!

This week’s theme is close-up!  Feel free to join in on the challenge.


Project 52: Blue

I cannot believe we are already a month into this challenge.  This week was hard for me, because winters in Wisconsin are pretty colorless.  The only thing I could think of to shoot was the sky and I didn’t want to do that, so as I was working on a quilting project, I found my blue!

If you are patient, you will find a better photo than you initially thought!  Looking to join in? Here is the challenge!

Brewers on Deck 2018

The baseball offseason seems like it has been going on forever by this time of the year.  Luckily, we get a taste of baseball at the annual fan fest in Milwaukee.  It is such a unique experience that you don’t really get with any other sport.  There are so many activities and chances to chat with your favorite players that makes it so appealing to the fans.  Also, you can’t beat that hope that warmer weather will be here soon!  One of the activities that was set up was a fan cave.  They rotated players through this area throughout the day to play games with kids.  Here, Manny Pina and Orlando Arica were checking out the hype of Pie Face.  Luckily, Orlando did not have the arm go off on him.

These two made a good team to rotate kids through the game, and it looks like they had a ton of fun doing it.  Pina was in charge of the Reddi Wip while Arcia was in charge of the spinner.  They had several kids come through to play the game.

After the Pie Face excitement, Pina switched over to shooting hoops with kids.  He actually assisted one of them by picking them up to go for the slam dunk.

This is always a fun experience for Brewers fans and gives everyone hope that the season will be here before we know it!  I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get back to baseball.


Project 52: Kitchen

This theme was a little harder for me.  I prefer to take photos outside because of the lighting.  It to me a while to figure out what I wanted to do for this week.  I came up with this photo showing the smooth motion of the KitchenAid mixer!

Project 52: Forgotten

I forgot to blog my last two weeks for project 52, so here we go.  Week three was forgotten, so I took this photo of an old school house in northern Wisconsin.  I hope to get more detailed shots of the building this year!

Bluejacks vs Hatchets Hockey

I was able to shoot some hockey back on January 9th and it reminded me how much I love shooting it!  Here are some of the photos from the Wausau East/ Merrill vs Tomahawk game.  It was a pretty good game to watch and shoot.


Golden Hour

Yesterday, we had some weird weather in northern Wisconsin.  We started out above freezing with rain all night.  Then it quickly switched over to snow and caused some flash freezing.  It made for bad road conditions, but it was perfect for pictures.  Especially during the golden hour this evening.  I just love how the colors turned out in these!

It may be cold, but getting photos like these helps me survive the winter months!
