I don't get many opportunities in the school year to just take photos for the entire day. Luckily, not so long ago, I had a day packed with fun, enjoyable activities. In the morning, my family and I went to our city park to spend time with family friends around the area and we had a picnic. Shortly after the picnic/gathering, I volunteered at our local Soul Festival, and once my shift was over, I grabbed the opportunity to take pictures around downtown. Within an hour, I headed to my school to watch a comedy play directed and produced by alumni from my school. It was unquestionably entertaining. As I was going home, I encountered a beautiful sight that just needed to be photographed: the moon. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the shots I wanted because I didn't have my tripod and I wasn't experienced with night photography, but I emphatically enjoyed my day. Below are a few of the pictures I took.

Recently, my father and I went to Starved Rock State Park. It is an absolutely beautiful and pleasant park located in the midwest. I took some (more like a ton) pictures on my camera (Nikon D3100) and just as a disclaimer--they are not edited. I hope you enjoy the photographs!
