Bus Stop in Hawaii

Posted in Curious, Travel by shannonsturgis on September 3, 2010

I didn’t get to wander on foot around Oahu as much as I hoped I could.  Because of this, I ended up taking quite a few pictures from the passenger side of the rental car as Chaz drove us from destination to destination.  I took this one on the way back from North Shore.   When we drove through this little town both to and from the beach, Usher’s OMG was playing on the radio.

Hawaiian Wedding

I just got back from Hawaii where I shot Routhie & Vergel’s wedding with my favorite wedding photographer and good buddy, Chaz Cruz.  Of course, I had an incredible time and you should expect to see more photos soon, but for now, here’s one of the lovely couple looking all jungle-y.

Lightning bolt in Arkansas.

While in Arkansas, I took this photo from my parents’ backporch.  I don’t usually photograph nature scenes, let alone lightning, and it was fun trying to catch something I’m not used to catching.  After standing in the heat and bugs holding my camera in anticipation, I went inside for a break.  Right when I sat down there was a huge crack and the sky lit up.  My mom said, “Oh no!”  And I thought, “Oh no is right, I should have been out there.”  Then she finished, “Oh no!  I’m glad you weren’t out there.”   I guess her concern lies more in my safety than me getting a picture of lightning.  Moms.  Gotta love ’em.

5th Avenue Fair in Park Slope/ May 16.

Posted in Event, Food, Moment by shannonsturgis on May 28, 2010

Sunday May 16, 5th Avenue in Park Slope closed down from Sterling Place to 12th Street.  The vehicle-free avenue filled with food vendors, craftsmen, music, neighbors, dogs, carnival games and beer stands.  Side streets were littered with stoop sales and people looking for shade and room to breathe.  I was playing with my new 35 mm.
