I have spent the day (and several before this) packing and getting ready for school. During all of this my mind began to wander and I began thinking about what I have to do/look forward to this upcoming quarter. Despite not having any sort of photography class this quarter, I have already started to think about Dawn To Dusk, an event held annually where photographers wake up early and have to shoot a certain theme/topic in a certain amount of time. It’s very fast-paced and exciting. I decided to post what I did last year during this project.
“The Ohio University Women’s Crew team rows in from an early morning practice at Stroud’s Run State Park in Athens, Ohio on October 22, 2010.”
This was taken extremely early and it was quite cold. I feel the shot that came from it was well worth it.
“Joan Ross laughs on October 22, 2010 as son-father team, George Cooper and George Cooper, Jr., clean up a trailer on their property on Matheny Road in York Township, Ohio. The men’s trailer was thrown into a tree after a tornado hit the area about a month ago.”
Tornadoes aren’t a normal occurrence in Athens, Ohio, but last September a pretty bad one came through the area. Many homes were destroyed and even during shooting for this project a month after, clean-up efforts were still occurring.
