SATURDAY EVENING FESTIVITIES


Last Saturday, after church, we took off for bleu cheese and bacon cheeseburgers at Culver's. Following the stuffing of our faces, we headed to a small town near us and donned our cameras. I have a special someone who has taken up a real interest in photography. That someone wanted me to teach them how to shoot - how to work the camera - etc. So...we took to the streets of this little town and shot for the evening. They were having a small street festival so it made for a great evening.


There was no purpose to our shoot - other than to just shoot. Because of that, I shot things that stood out to me. Random things. Things I enjoyed the look of.




I loved this clock (above)...just loved it...

Loved nothing but the word "SEW" spray painted on this door. I guess the word just holds a close place in my heart due to my designing. I later realized, as I walked the allies of this small town, that this word obviously reflected a gang. Gang verbage. Very sad!

The above shot of the bikes above is probably my favorite one of the night. Loved the bikes, loved the distressed alley, just loved the moment.

They had the coolest bricked streets. Very unique.

The above sign reflects old memories. This old pub is still alive and kickin'. We frequented this "unique" local back in the day. They have the best fried dill pickle appetizers. YUM! A must try if you ever get there.

And lastly, the highlight to our old town walk and shoot...a young boy band - on the corner - rockin' it out together. I was so impressed that I just had to stop and get images of the moment. They were a hoot...

A real treat to our night...


A great evening it was. It was the first time in 2 weeks that I had picked up my camera. After some "nudging," I finally placed big papa in my hands and got to work again. It was a wonderful feeling. I had been having some serious withdraws. And all this week, I'm still rockin' it out with Big Papa. I can't wait to share...

Until then...Much love, Angie

Such neat pictures Angie, what a neat little town. Looks like your camera was therapy! I made some big purchases last week after the workshop and I am almost scared to start using them, yikes! I wish I had half the talent that you do! Wanna come and help me "play" with my new toys? I think I am over my head!
I have been thinking of you daily, praying for you and wish I was there to share a big fat cupcake with you!

Wow…like Tosha said…you turn a picture of nothing into a masterpiece. Seeing this for myself for the first time Saturday it was really amazing how the world is not experienced the way you experience it. It is sad to think what we all miss as a world because we are moving so fast we never get a chance to enjoy what is free for the taking but we only see when you bring it to life through a picture. Those kids were a hoot... They had no cares in the world and enjoying life… what it would be like to go back in time. If we could only rip the hands back on your favourite clock you loved so much and change all that we regret. The best shot of the night was taken by the student. What the blog readers will never see is the hot photo mom crouched down on the street of that ally taking the picture of those bikes. I stood down the ally in amazement and with my elementary skills zooed in and captured the most perfect picture of the night of the Artist and that “was a moment”. I am glad together you found the strength to get Big Papa out and breathe life to the back streets of Noblesville with your presence, breathed life back into you Baby. It seems so therapeutic for you. You are just simply AMAZING! I hope to ride shotgun again soon….With love, Brent TFANA-TWCMITIA

I have been to Syd's and how right you are about the fried pickles....like heaven in a basket! Glad to see you are back at it, shooting the things you love. I can't wait to see what else you have in store! :)

Those were so cool! And what great pictures! You have inspired me to go get a SLR camera and start taking better pics than my little point and shoot can handle. My biggest problem is taking pics of my daughter in her gymnastics gym. They are always so dark. Hoping the newer camera can fix this. Love to you and the fam!!

Oh my, such great work. I can't believe I use to work in that small town and I drove by all those buildings just like your husband said, "without even noticing the beauty infront of me." Your photo's brought back fond memories for me. Thanks for sharing.

I have lived in Noblesville, Loved it there. I have also been to Syds, didn't have fried pickles though. I wished you would have given that Band a plug by putting their name out there. I can almost see my little Brennen out there soon. I am glad you had some time to go out with your husband and fall In Love all over again! I too loved all the pictures! Brent is right, it is amazing what we don't see, until it is put right out there in front of you! XOXOXO
