Wendy had to work all day Saturday, and it was one of those days that I could not stand the thought of studying anymore. We've been having a lot of unseasonably wet weather for this time of year and as a result I've been kind of intrigued with how light reflects off of water. I spent the afternoon in Salt Lake trying to capture some of the water on the streets. I have to admit, shooting pictures in a busy city without really having a subject is a lot harder than I thought, especially when the rain is pouring down and I'm trying to keep my camera dry by holding it inside of my coat. I bet I looked funny...




While I was struggling to find any real subjects, and soaking myself in the process, a line of policemen rode up towards the capitol building. Shortly after them came a long line of people, also getting soaked. They were chanting their feelings about gay rights, or in this case, what they thought was the lack thereof. Not exactly the subject I went there to shoot, but the pictures turned out kind of interesting.

Steven--

I had no idea you were into photography. You have natural talent-- you're very good at framing and making the everyday look fantastic. Have you joined flickr? It would be a good way to get your photography out there to other photography lovers AND possibly meet other people in your area who share the same interests.

All the best--

Jessica

Steve, I had no idea-before yours and Wendy's blog happened-that you were so into photography! You are GOOD! Dang good! I am so totally impressed. Guess maybe photography runs in the Davis blood. I think some of Dennis's kids are into it as well. I think it's Jill. You'll have to check out her blog. Anyway, keep it up! I am enjoying these photos. You're awesome!

About Me

My photo
I'm a biology student at Brigham Young University. I'm graduating this April and plan on submitting my application to Podiatry school shortly after. When I'm not consumed with school one of my favorite things is photography. I love being able to capture the beauty of the world. Everything I do is purely for my entertainment and sanity. My wife Wendy and I have a blog at stevenandwendy.blogspot.com where we post pictures that have more to do with us and our life. She didn't want me to take it over with abstract photos, hence the reasoning for this blog. I hope you enjoy
