Camping, Day 2, Part 2 {Fine Art Photography, Shelbyville, Illinois}

Lots of sunburned faces in this post.  Everyone went to the beach for the day and pretty much everyone got a sunburn.  There was lots of napping going on after the beach.  Instead of the beach, Trevor and I went to the old Roxy Theater in downtown Shelbyville and watched the last Harry Potter.  It was so nice to be in a dark cool spot instead of out in the sun!  And of course, Harry Potter was awesome as usual.  My nieces were none to pleased to find out what we did when they got back.  They wanted to go really, really bad.  I love going to old Theaters like that.  I'm still waiting for someone to fix up the Heart! If I had the money I would do it.  Since I'm talking about movies and such, I was planning on going to the drive-in in Newton, went to check what's playing there and it's already closed for the season!!!!!!!!   What!?  The site says, 'see you next spring'.  Is summer over already?  So disappointed. Day 2

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
