Shoot Where You Are

Culled from the day’s catch- didn’t photograph any food making today but here is what I photographed on Saturday.

School’s out for the summer  so I’m not in my home territory.  Most days I shoot photographs as I drive around the city. But I am seeing different scenery these days.  We went to a T-ball game on Saturday morning.

Four Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies fell out of the van onto the pavement and their bright orange caught my eye but I thought, nah, four bitty snack crackers are not worth a photograph since we have to get to the game and haul  the fold-up chairs and the bag of snacks for the team.  I mean another day I could do a Snack Cracker still life but we were in a rush.

Imagine my surprise when we returned to the van. The neon orange obliterated.  Ants working hard to live.

and then as we pulled out of the school parking lot by the baseball fields, there was a church parking lot and a scene I wanted to photograph. This is when you are probably annoying to your daughter-in-law but she doesn’t mind and pulls over by the dumpster and I got out and took about 4 quick shots on the gray day.




and the detail. My DIL asked if I wanted to come back and pick it up to take back home since it wasn’t broken!


A quick trip to the zoo and the reptile house.  The kids got a chance to touch the Rosy Boa. I photographed the Pythons devouring rabbits but it is too graphic.


The Columbus Zoo has a lovely 1914 Carousel, restored.  The youngest 3 grandkids took a ride.

  1. Wow, that was quite a summer afternoon. Glad you didn’t include the Boa eating the rabbit.

  2. I agree with Laura – that recliner is hideous. Lots of creepy pictures — and that that lovely one of Maura! A pleasant surprise!! She is gorgeous!

  3. I absolutely love the picture of Maura! She could be a model right now with her beautiful hair and eyes. Yes, ants can take over any food within a matter of minutes. Ruth, I’ve said it before but I really love your photography because it always holds so much life, no matter what the subject!

  4. Kind of a grim day for your photos… except for that last beauty. 🙂 Thanks for sparing us the image of rabbits being devoured – seriously.

  6. Yes, that’s a terrific photo of Maura. And I really like the photo of the 1914 carousel. It’s almost 100 years old, and they have done an incredible job of restoration. It looks brand new.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
