the other day i was at jenica's grandparents house and realized that i have never climbed the silo....so, i climbed it
i was really nervous at first and was sweating at about 50 feet, but then i was fine
i did have really sore forearms though by time i reached the top...
totally worth it
tonight was a lot of fun
jenica and i got to go over and visit our cousins adam and katie...as well as the newest member of the family...3 day old shea nicole
we spent a couple hours getting some shots as well as watching the cubs whoop up on the brewers
so far shea is bringing us some luck as the cubs have won their 3rd straight...thanks shea
this was my first time seeing the crop duster
i was completely amazed at how close they got to the top of the corn...
then after awhile i realized i probably should not be out there that close since chemicals were pouring out of the plane and drifting towards me
at least i got some cool pics
hope i don't look weird in the morning or something
jenica and i worked with my dad a couple days last week
we poured concrete in a crawl space...which was really tight (as in small, not cool)
she was in there running the hose while my dad smoothed it all out
i pulled the slack from outside (which was a much easier job than jenica's and she was sure to let me know that)
today was pretty incredible
my friend leighton connected me with a great photographer, matt clark, when i checked out northpoint today
we sat and talked for a bit and then he did the craziest thing which most photographers strongly encourage you not to do...he let me borrow a couple of his lenses!
he knew me for five minutes and then offered hundreds of dollars worth of equipment over
unbelievable...well i wasn't going to turn down this offer considering they were some pretty sweet macro lenses that will help me out in a huge way when i shoot my first wedding in two weeks
here are a few from the macro...(matt has a similar one of a quarter on his flickr site but i thought it looked so cool that i wanted to give it a try)
thanks again matt!
sorry there has not been much lately
i was way to scared to take my camera to summer camp with the wedding just around the corner
jena got her hair did by hannah just a little bit differently in preperation for the wedding...it looks great!
we also got in our business cards...pretty exciting....crazy where all this is going...God is good
