Family Photo Walk.

Jun 23, 2015

We finally had a day of good weather and wanted to take advantage of it to it’s fullest.  Bennett had an idea to take our cameras and go photograph around town…and I am so glad he suggested it.  We had a blast. 

Louis grabbed his camera, we grabbed ours, and we hit up different places in town.  It was really sweet seeing the kiddo get into it.  Whenever we suggest something to Louis, we can never tell if it’s going to be a hit or a miss.  He’s four.  So his interests and moods change swiftly.  Luckily, our photography outing was a big hit with him.

I think Louis liked the lookout the most.  He kept using the zoom on his little Canon Elph to zoom in on different billboards in the downtown area.  

Here is one of his shots.  I think it’s pretty good!

Bennett somehow talked me into actually walking on the Suspension Bridge.  Aah!  I love the bridge and admire it’s history and beauty.  But I DO NOT like actually being on it.  I have willingly driven across it maybe five times.  And I had no interest in walking on it….and yet, there I was.  My vertigo was kicking in a slight bit but we made it.  It’s all good.

We continued toward the downtown/Heritage Port area for the remainder of our time.  Louis and I both took a liking to the flowers in one of the grassy lots.  Sure, some people would think they were weeds.  Weeds or not, Lou and I liked them.

Here’s Louis’ flower shot:

The Summer Solstice festival was in full swing at the Heritage Port and we stopped by to check out some of the excitement.  The music was great and we got to stop at one of our friend’s booths, hang out, and let Louis draw with sidewalk chalk alongside their sweet little girl.

It was a perfect evening.  Really, it was.  I’m so glad we did it and I’m hoping we can steal a moment for some artsy and random photography again soon.  Hopefully Louis will be into it just as much as he was this time.

I will admit though.  Not all of Louis’ photography was brilliant.
He was giving me direction for poses.  One was just to turn around so he could take a picture of my butt.  And the other, he wanted me to go stand against that brick wall and pretend I was falling.  Haha.  Oh my gosh.  That child of mine.

I didn’t edit any of Bennett’s photos.  I figured I’d let him do his own magic.  But I couldn’t resist sharing Louis’ work…as well as some of my own.  Otherwise, they’ll just sit on my computer.  Sometimes pictures just need to be seen, you know?

Have you ever done a photo walk like this?  Just taking pictures of the things you see every day, but maybe from a different angle?  It’s super fun and I highly recommend it!
