I love my hometown. I don't think I've ever made that a secret, so obviously I will have more photos from West Point than any other place. I hope you'll forgive me. It's very convenient to live in a beautiufl downtown area and to be able to just walk outside of my house and starting shooting, especially at sunset. I took advantage of the lack of light to get this photo with a bit of a long exposure stopping my lens down to  f22 so that I could show the movement of the water.

Small Town Lion

Sat Oct 14, 2017

I spotted this lion in downtown West Point but luckily he seemed to be frozen in time. Oddly enough, right across the street from this lion is a stuffed lion inside of a gun shop. So beware of exotic wildlife when you are walking through West Point. This lion, I was told, was actually formerly located at the Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis.

Enjoy this photo from West Point of a lamp post and the City Hall clock tower as its backdrop. Aren't small towns the best?

As I've said many times before, I love West Point's downtown. Great buildings and it is well kept. It wasn't always that way, but in recent years there has been a resurgence in businesses there and in the care that the town is taking to make it look really nice and welcoming. A nice sunset doesn't hurt either.

I love living in West Point. It has a beautiful downtown and it's super quiet in the evenings, which makes walking around much more calming and relaxing. It also means that there aren't many cars coming through, but I did catch this car passing by as I was photographing the sunset. The Ritz really added to Commerce St where most of the historic business district is, so I always love photographing their sign when it's lit up, especially with a narrow aperture set at 22 to really get those starbursts.

Light Speed

Tue Sep 5, 2017

Last weekend I went out to get some sunset photos and decided to try and capture some light trails as well. It's not that easy to catch good light trails in a town that doesn't have a lot of traffic, but thankfully there was enough to get some good ones on a Friday night. The sky created a nice backdrop to this and the street lamps put a nice glow on the buildings for a very dramatic effect. I even got some movement in the clouds as they approacehd the right side of the photograph. Life is movement, as they say, so it's nice to capture movement in a photo to make your eye travel with it from one side of the photo to the other.

This is a shot from Sally Kate Winters Park in in the middle of downtown West Point, a beautiful park and a great place to go for a stroll or to just sit and enjoy life. Watching a nice sunset is also nice. This is will be ground zero for this Saturday's Prairie Arts Festival, filled with lots of artwork and great food.

Friday night my wife and I went on a stroll in downtown West Point (where we live) to catch some sunset photos, since I haven't gotten any sunset photos around town in a while and I wanted to get some shots I hadn't gotten before. The sunset did not dissapoint... at. all. The sky was great and the sun which was setting over the buildings on the left was casting a beautiful glow on the buildings to the right. I sat my camera really low on the tripod and got this shot. I think the lights of the lamps, which cut on just before I took the shot really added to the whole photo. And no cars being in the shot made it even better.
