A portion of Fort Meigs in Perrysburg, OH.
Could this be the predecessor of the barbed wire fence?
I was on a photo safari in downtown Toledo when this young man comes up to me and asks if I would take his picture. I said sure. He posed himself in front of a brick wall and then asked me if he could take off his shirt. I said sure. Then he proceeded to strike some poses as if he were being photographed for a magazine. He definitely was not shy about the camera or about his body.
Because I didn’t have my bag with the model release forms with me, I can’t show his face, so you get a cropped out version of him.
I took about 5 or 6 pictures, he put his shirt back on, smiled and said thanks, then we went our separate ways.
My neighbor, Sally came over yesterday all excited, shouting “911 photography!” then practically dragged me over to her yard so that I could get a shot of her hydrangea.
They were most beautiful and I’m most appreciative that Sally learned to share.
Just seeing a ferris wheel brings to mind the scents of the midway ~ cotton candy, caramel corn, corn dogs….you know, all those healthy snacks.
This was taken at Cahoon Memorial Park in Bay Village, Ohio.
This was taken during Marine Week in Cleveland, OH.
Even if you’re not in the military, it’s worth the trip for all the events, educational activities, and so many people coming together to share our love of this country. It was a great experience.
