World Photo Day

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything with the way you see them.” -Elliott Erwitt. Happy World Photo Day!

In honor of World Photo Day here is one of my favorite shots that I took when I went to the county fair earlier this week.

Montgomery County Agricultural Fair

One of my favorite summertime activities is going to the local county fair, seeing all the farm animals and eating a funnel cake. The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair opens a week from today and runs through Aug. 22.

Of course there are rides and activities:

And the contests, such as a Twitter Photo Scavenger Hunt returning for the second year in a row this year. Big surprise, I’m going to play and enter again this year!

VE Day Flyover in Washington, DC

On Friday, May 8th, I attended the Arsenal of Democracy flyover in Washington, DC and captured some stunning moments. The flyover included dozens of World War II aircraft flying in 14 historical warbird formations representing the major battles, from Pearl Harbor through the final air assault on Japan. Here are some of my favorite pictures that I took of the flyover.

Backyard Visitor – Buck

Today I took this picture of this buck in my backyard. I was sitting at the computer writing an e-mail when my mom comes into my room and tells me there is a deer in our backyard. My dad went into further detail by saying that it is a beautiful buck with big antlers. I didn’t need telling twice, so I ran to get my Canon Rebel EOS T3i and attached my 55-250mm lens. I couldn’t agree with my dad more, he is a beautiful buck! Technical Details: f/5.6, 1/400, ISO 3200, 250mm.
