The Adventures of a Thursday Night

I got the chance a few weeks ago to take some pictures for my mom's company and one of the places we took photos had the most amazing view of the Cleveland skyline

That day I also got to hang out with my beautiful friend Liana.  We went exploring in the woods and then we watched the sun set.

I thought this one was interesting, I turned the flash on and shot upwards so that it highlighted the leaves nearest to me.

I love it when the sun peaks through the trees like this.  A friend of mine calls this sun diamonds when you can see the light peaking through the leaves in the woods and I think that is a great way to describe it.

The lake was calm that day and the sky was rather clear.

We saw a few kayakers and it made me wonder if I should take my Aunt up on her offer to take me out kayaking on the lake.  When I was seven I went kayaking on a small lake and got stranded, perhaps it's time for me to face that fear.

Liana and I had our sketchbooks at the lake and it always amazes me to watch other people draw.  (Not to mention, how cute is her short hair?)

This is one of my favorite places in the city to watch the sun set.

The clouds created a compelling effect when the sun went behind them and there were a lot of interesting silhouettes of people around the park.

I recently found this John Lennon quote that I really like;  "When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody notices, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps."

I hope you all enjoyed looking at my photos as much as I enjoy taking them and I wish you all a wonderful weekend.  Maybe you'll get a chance to marvel at the beauty of the world around you.

  1. Wow! Love all of them but the skyline and sun on the water pics especially. And you absolutely should take your aunt up on the kayaking offer. (I mean in a pretty, calm reservoir in Castalia, not in Lake Erie! :)
