The Sun Also Rises

Virginia Kendall
Since my gimp leg kept me up most of the night I decided to pay it back by dragging it around Kendall this morning - it had been far too long since I watched the sunrise in the Cuyahoga Valley anyways. I guess there are a few reasons I don't get out in the woods as much anymore - most of my hiking time is now biking time, I feel like I've pretty thoroughly covered The Valley with my camera over the years, I'm shooting all the time as my day job now, and maybe this one is stupid - but it seems kind of ridiculous for me to lug thousands of dollars worth of gear knowing people will look at it on tiny phone screens - so like most - I'm happy to take the iphone snap and just post it to Instagram...
Regardless - I am glad I took the time to enjoy a beautiful morning in the park - and maybe I'll print one of these big - something a phone still can't do.

Growing Up Akron 2017

I've been shooting Growing Up Akron, which is a charity event for Child Guidance and Family Solutions, for a number of years now. It is a really fun event to cover as it is held at Thirsty Dog Brewery and has a very laid back vibe. This year I brought my drone to get some aerial shots and then put together this slide show of the event.

Downtown at Dusk

Downtown at Dusk
Downtown at Dusk is one of my favorite weekly summer events in Akron. It takes place every Thursday - I love to go and have a few beers and mingle with friends. Last week Half-Cleveland played and put on a great show.
