Photo-A-Day #1625

Today my friend Lenny (@popimages) came over to shoot photos of me for a Secret Project, which happens also to be the name of his blog. I need photos of me for something that is coming up in a few weeks. I can’t show you any of the photos of me however I can show you the photo that I took of Lenny as he was taking photos of me.

I can also show you a beautiful photo of Eva that I took while we were trying to take family photos as well.

Loving photos from Dadda

The toughest thing for me being an amateur photographer is that I want to shoot my way and cannot convey what I really want to someone else. Lenny comes from the world of old school film and he had the light meter and knew many technical things for photography. He’d say some term and I’d have a totally blank look on my face. My response was “I just shoot”. That is my process I shoot and shoot until I find a shot I like and then I shoot some more. I think that Lenny and I worked out a good system overall and I am pleased with many of the photos. I’ll post them up when I get a chance after the ones I use for the secret project go up.

After the main photoshoot we went to Havana Cafe for Lunch. Lenny works cheap, for food. It was the least I could do for him. Who knows we might even get our Christmas photo from the lot. Every time I go to Havana Cafe I am happy with the results. The food is so delicious and the people there are so friendly. I just wish that more people were in there when we go. I feel bad because the people are so friendly and the food is so good but the location sucks. There is not enough parking and it is on a busy street. But if you can brave that you will really enjoy the food.

After lunch we went up to World War I Memorial Park and Lenny got a few fun shots of me at the playground. Adults on children’s toys make for fun photos. I hope these were the sort of photos that I need for this secret project.

Daddy/Daughter Date Day

Daddy/Daughter Date Day
Photo-A-Day #1422

Today Allison had a ZETA event so she was gone most of the day. I spent the day with Eva. After Eva woke up from her nap at noon we went over to Dairy Queen for a Daddy and Daughter Date Day. We had a great meal together. Eva had chicken tenders and applesauce and shared some of my fries. The real fun was after our meal, we had dessert. Eva had her 1st Dairy Queen ice cream cone. She loved it! I have a great Dairy Queen post that will be going up soon that includes photos and a fun video. I did take one with my camera phone.

Luckily it was a nice day weatherwise. After our lunch we went to World War I Memorial Park. There are many domestic animals there at the park including two cute little pot bellied pigs. We brought some carrots to give to the animals. Don’t worry I did all the giving of the food to the animals. Eva herself crunched on a carrot the whole time. The animals were following us around because of her carrot. There were goats, deer, llamas, ponies and a little donkey.

After the animals we played in one of the little playground areas. Eva enjoyed the slide. She’d slide down and I’d swoop her up into the air and we’d laugh and I’d put her up again. I cherish these little days where we go do something fun together, or even those days when we stay in and color.
