Magic Dust


I’m sorry that it’s been so long since I’ve been in here…..too many shiny things to distract me (kinda like the magic dust).

This was taken at Parade the Circle in Cleveland, Ohio. The parade takes place every year on the second Saturday of June in Wade Oval. It’s truly an experience, not just a parade. If you’ve ever been, you know exactly what I mean and if you’ve never been then block off that second Saturday for next year and come to Cleveland!

Camera Shy (or not)

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.
