Photography Walk ~ Get Together

Yesterday I got together with another lady who loves photography.  We've been trying to arrange a get together for months now.

Yesterday the weather was perfect and so was the sky.  I met her in LaCrosse and we went to the Riverside Park and took a walk and began to 'get to know' each other.  I work with her husband so we were not complete strangers.  Of course we'd talked via email and other internet resources.

But suddenly we were face to face and after only a few moments I realized that I'd met someone who was refreshingly enthusiastic and fun.  Who smiled a lot  and shared my passion for trying to get a 'good' or 'great' shot.


Off we went to Myric Park in LaCrosse which has trails that lead out into the marsh.  I x-country skied these trails with my cousin Aaron this winter.  
The trails look much different of course, in June!


I have to credit the above shot to Shoua who spotted this scene.  I saw it but really didn't register the potential until she said something.

 It helps that the both of us are adventurous people.  Shoua was not shy about trying something different.

I had lunch later with her and her husband and all I can say is that I really enjoyed doing photography with someone else.
It made the experience more gratifying to say the least.

Lovely pictures, it's always nice to cross paths with someone with enthusiasm and a shared interest - if the photos are anything to go by you had a great time!
