Taking the train..

This is the old train station in Trotwood, Ohio. This railroad was completed in 1854. After observing the commercial opportunities this railway presented, Amos Higgins - the community's first successful entrepreneur built a railway station, tavern and inn and named it Higgins Station. This image was shot in early morning while the sun was still low. Shot using NIkon D300, 28mm, shutter 1/125, f/6.3, 200 ISO. Click on image to enlarge for true resolution.

Good for a kiss anytime (mommies only). Still in the design room for my portrait cards, these are additional poses from yesterday's shoot. I like the background of the first photo card - what's your opinion.

The Graffiti Wall

These are some graffiti murals on the side of a Shop-N-Lock in Dayton, Ohio. The first is "Etch" and I believe the 2nd is "Heist". You may see these as backdrops for future portraits.
