Went for another walk around not looking for anything in particular. Sometimes those are the best of times having no interest in the spectacular, just looking for something you might find interesting.
My wife and I spent most of the day driving around back roads just south of where we live. We came across a new brewery but didn’t take any photos of that which will mean a trip back. The day started out rather interesting an early start with us getting stuck in a ditch full of water which involved me pushing and her backing the car out. We did it but I ended up standing in ice water over my boots. However this is a result of the day.
Over the years my wife and I have taken a number of portraits. Most have been off the cuff something we see in someone’s face and it’s just one of those catch as catch can kind of things. Lately I’ve been working on “formal” sitting portraiture to learn something new. I’m rather please with the results. . .enjoy. If you have any comments of advice please feel free.
This past weekend my wife and I attended the War of 1812 event, The 200 Anniversary of the Battle of the Thames. The modern Essex and Kent Scottish Regiment put on a power demonstration for the public just before the re-enactment of the battle. 200 years ago the ancestor of this Regiment fought in the Essex and Kent militias to defend their homes and the their country from invasion.
