Return Of The Color Run

Color Run 2013-09-15 1

For-profit but fun (or, as The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy would put it, mostly harmless) The Color Run returned to St. Louis yesterday. I've shot the event twice before, once here and this time last year in Birmingham, Alabama. (Hey, Grace, it's coming to Perth on 3 November!) Other readers should see if it's coming to a city near you.

The idea is to run or walk 5 km in a white tee shirt and get completely blasted by super-fine, brightly colored powder. The other idea is to avoid getting it all over the front of your lens.

More to come.

Madeleine Monday

Madeleine 2013-09-13 2

Last Friday night at the Soulard Art Market show opening. Baby's first art gallery. I don't know if that look reflects interest, bewilderment or grandpa blasting the flash in her face again. 24 days old.

très belle première photo, avec toute cette énergie et l'ombre derrière.
et la plus émouvante, your baby ;)

en réponse a ta question, ni flash, ni lumière sur le scène (j'aurais bien aime ;) ), montée en Iso et gestion de la vitesse.

Much better to take Madeleine to the art gallery than the colored powder run.

Madeleine looks fascinated--but she's looking at her mom, isn't she?

What beautiful eyes!

This is what I call her "E.T. look"

Great images, the second one is a winner for its tonalities, composition and spontaneity! And congratulations for your beautiful bright eyes granddaughter!

I'm with Carraol that second shot is a winner for sure Bob! As for this little cutie pie, oh my..that is a wonderfully artistic sweet face. Gosh she's as bright as a button! Love Madeleine Monday!
