Ready for the Olympics
London looked great. Everything was clean and ready to entertain the world. The people were friendly and even the English policemen had a sense of humor (not that I gave them reason otherwise). I'm not sure how friendly and nice everything was after the visitors left the Olympics, but my guess is that the British humer and pride is just as strong.
If you have spent anytime looking through my images, you know that I enjoy large subjects and wide-angle lenses. Recently I've tried to step out of my comfort zone and look at smaller pieces of the bigger picture. I don't always like what I shoot, but it's been a trend I'll keep practicing. These lights are part of a ride at last year's Houston Rodeo carnival. The lights and converging lines caught my eye. Okay, it was mostly the lights, but it does make a nice pattern.
Summer camp is like an ant hill after a rainstorm. The kids are outside running around in all directions, jumping into the pool or lake, or just looking for something to eat. But as evening falls and everyone goes to dinner, evening worship or whatever else is scheduled, everything comes to a stop and breathes a sigh or relief.
