A Valentine's Day Sunrise - 02/14/2014 - Metropolis, Illinois

It was much more delightful shooting this morning with the massive rise in temps, bringing us to about 35 degrees!! 




A nice big shot of the sky from the corner of 9th and Girard...





A branch at the corner of 9th and Girard just aching to bloom out and delight us...








I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shot!!  I was just about to come back inside and I noticed this lone little cluster of ice cycles hanging on for dear life and the sunrise twinkling through them looked so fantastically prismatic...

Metropolis, IL -Saturday Morning Sunrise - 01/18/2014

I only got yesterday's sunrise photo as far as the KCoJax Candids Facebook Page... But this morning I checked the facebook feed as I was sipping my java and my friend Jay posted the most fantastic red sunrise! It was in fact SO fantastic that I jumped up (in my PJs) threw on a scarf, a hoodie and a hat, grabbed my camera and bolted out the back door... 

While I was out there meandering around... having a ciggy with one hand and shooting with the other, I noticed how the light was hitting this tree... It caused me to put my ciggy out so I could get down and waller around on the ground for this shot... You're welcome!


Have a Grand and Groovy Day!

Enjoy!

In my merchandise shop at Cafe Press I have created an item or two... My challenge with that is that I try to choose a fantastic landscapish scene, but I do want you to be aware that merchandise can also be created for you... i.e.  if I happened to catch a great candid of your child on their school float - I can make that into a magnet, deck of cards, java mug, etc for you, post it for you, send you the link to it in my Flawn Ocho store and you can order it right from there and have it shipped directly to yourself or someone else. Kaboom, done! And the shipping time is rather quick!

Karen and Kara - If YOU Ate Today... Thank A Farmer! - 2013 Metropolis Labor Day Parade




I believe this shot is my absolute favorite from the 2013 Metropolis Labor Day Parade.... 

As these two beauties approached, I was pretty sure I knew the older one... and I use the term loosely - because every time I see her I walk away thinking that girl hasn't aged since 1986...

I was happy to find later in the day that I was correct when the driver's brother, Steve commented on the photo... Pictured here, Karen Schwetman Womack and her youngest daughter, Kara.

If You Ate Today... Thank a Farmer!
