My daughter Laura took this image, next to Columbus Architectural Salvage, Columbus, Ohio.
The title of the post, is the question she texted me.
Lots of gatherings documented throughout the course of a year and a few from years ago.
The group photos pose a challenge, getting everyone with you simultaneously. I’ve included some more candid shots.
Happy Fourth Anniversary to Laura and James.
Baby Charlie and his parents photographed Sunday November 8, 2015.
I had fun shooting “wedding photos” six months after the wedding- June 2012
Short North – Columbus OH
You may have seen the wedding photos after the wedding on November 12, 2011 but Mother of the Bride can’t be the photographer, too.
Had to get that cell phone to my eye as quickly as I could to capture this composition. My son had called the kids to help me load up the car as I prepared to leave Columbus for Pittsburgh. Henry is tagging along.
They were all (including Henry) going on their own trip, a couple of hours away, to select the Airedale puppy they’ll pick up Labor Day Weekend.
Anna as photographed by her mom, Erika, holding their choice- Josie.
Lots of shade in both photos
Maura attended a 3 day Cheerleading camp at Olentangy High School. She loved it! She lead two of the cheers for the entire group.
Baby Charles and Aunt Laura came to see the performance.
Jack brought a book to read. And he shared it with his new baby cousin!
Jack would just have soon missed the performance but entertained himself with a book.
Aunt Erika and Cousin Michael take care of Cousin Charles.
Maura led two cheers for the entire group.
Believe it or not, Charles seemed to like all the cheering and music.
In the parking lot.
No lightning. It was a go.
It’s unfortunate we can’t share the excessive rain with other parts of the country who need it.
You know those photo greeting cards with the tiny hand in the big hand?
The touching closeups?
I was going for a similar feel with the new parents and grandson Charlie who was a week and a day.
Oops. Add one eager Golden Doodle. Penny’s paw added to the photo.
A fellow blogger writes about things she’s grateful for and has inspired me to post this Med Flight helicopter.
Here is her latest gratitude post about a gift of flowers to the teacher- thank you Colline.
Friday when I left the hospital after visiting my new grandson, there was a helicopter outside on the pad ready for take off. They’d brought a patient in need of care to Riverside Hospital in Columbus OH.
MedFlight does amazing work, “critical care transport”– getting people to advanced medical treatment in a timely manner with the latest technology.
As I was exiting the parking lot, I saw my son Mark photographing the helicopter. He has always loved them since he was little.
I pulled over to the curb and photographed the rising bird and Mark, fascinated as if he were still seven, photographing the ascending helicopter. He had told me on the way to our cars, “they’re not supposed to be able to fly, you know.”
But fly they do-
A few years ago I got a nice shot of the family looking up at the fireworks. Thought I would try again to improve on it. Some of the shots are strangers Some family.
The canisters sure get launched quickly. I tried to work fast.
