It’s pretty fun to sit and watch the Alexandria Fire Department show off, although I’m sure they have a good reason for these exercises! The sun was hitting the scene¬†just right, forming a rainbow in the mist from the stream of water.

The interplay of shadow and color is fun to look for, regardless of where you may live. You can find great moments like these anywhere. To me, this image evokes a feeling of warmth that is especially welcome on a cold, rainy day like today.

One of the best things about being a photographer is the people you get to meet along the way. I met Curly yesterday as he was playing conga in front of Market Square. We chatted for a bit about music and then he was gracious enough to let me take some photos.
