Happy Fourth of July

Today is a day where we celebrate the birth of this nation. It is a great day to spend with friends enjoying the summer. I love the colors that this day provides. It is a sea of red, white, and blue everywhere you look. It is a day to have fun, but at the same time be safe. Get out and enjoy the fireworks tonight as they light up the July sky.

The VOSS Model at Purdue in Red, White, and Blue

Last January after a Purdue women’s basketball game I went out to the VOSS model to see it with a fresh snowfall. Just before that time I did not even know that the model existed. Then two Purdue photographers both put out photos of it that were amazing so I wanted to see it for myself. I had an idea for a photo with snow on the ground. That was a black and white photo that I really liked. Here I used another take from the same shoot with a little different edit. I love the black and white, but the color photo really is a red, white, and blue photo. I thought that it would be nice to run it today. Usually I like these types of photos on a warm summer day to help cool me off. The projected high as I write this is not very good though so it might be closer to this snowy day than the 95 degree day.
