Yesterday was the Worldwide Photo Walk. I decided to do the walk in Ybor City in Tampa. I’d never been to that section and it was a great place for photographic opportunities. We ventured over to the market during our walk where I noticed many interesting hair styles and color. Ever the opportunist, I was able to capture some of these ladies to fulfill this weeks challenge. Turquoise seemed to be a very popular hair color!
Not many grandparents would venture an 18 hour car trip with a 5 year old but that is exactly what we did. Our son recently moved to Philadelphia (where we are from) and we wanted to take an extended trip there so driving was the best option. I wasn’t sure how my grandson would do for all those hours in the car but the IPAD seemed to occupy him for hours on end. When we got close to Philadelphia we decided to take a side trip to Strasburg PA to visit Thomas the Train. Although I wasn’t terribly impressed with Thomas I did find some historic things to photograph. Gap, PA has historic significance dating back to William Penn. I managed to snap a photo of my grandson sitting on the “William Penn” rock.
The Gap Town Clock is where I found my image for “looking up”. The Gap Clock Tower is about 40′ high. I was standing directly underneath the tower and trying to get an angle on my camera for an upward image. This tower was build in 1892 in Gap, PA where William Penn owned about 200 acres of property. It’s quite an interesting town with a population of under 2000.
