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.


  1. 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!

  2. Sounds like a great time and you sure got some nice shots.
