Photography on an Off Day… Not Bad- Return Trip Planned!

College visit weekend included some great photo opportunities, but all my chances for purty pics were completely marred by one thing- I felt crummy. There was so much to do, things to see, terribly interesting people to learn from and question… nope! Great foods, lovely walks, nearby cities to visit. All shot to hell with two of us falling ill.

We are getting better, and will have more opportunities in the near future to do all the things we missed out on- it looks like The Girl is sold on this place.

Although the lighting and framing is not what I want for almost every one of these photos, here is a sampling of some of the sights we did manage to fit in while visiting Spokane:

We really enjoyed this restaurant and I’m bringing the Nikon back to The Steam Plant for better photo opps.

Staircase inside of the school’s oldest building. I wish I had more time for photography that day!

Three shots from inside the parish church. It was beautiful!


And a couple of shots from Oakland’s island airport- my son spotted the joke on the runway tug-truck… can you see it? And Can you believe that this is the view from one of the food court shops at an airport? It was really lovely, the picture doesn’t do that view justice.IMG_6149

I bet I can snap better photos if I am not ill! Oh well. There’s always tomorrow!

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
