I'm back on the morning shift, which means Saturday morning assignments.
To keep myself sane, I try not to venture out late on Friday nights with friends knowing I'll have to
Last weekend was no exception. I was in my car heading southwest to Eagle Mountain way too early. I was in zombie mode.
I feel like every time I head out there for a scheduled standalone event it's always canceled and I end up searching for another feature on my own.
But this time around, the princess day festival at the local library was still on.
Now to divert for a second, I told a friend to go out and shoot artsy photos of the east coast snow. They've been getting hammered...in case you live under a rock.
Since they are not a photographer, they said no and explained: "I'd feel like a complete idiot standing in the middle of the road taking pictures. Someone would probably call the cops on me."
I instantly laughed, telling them they'd never be a photojournalist if they worried about what others thought of them taking pictures.
Case in point, being the only male in a room of 50 some little girls and their mothers at a princess festival, all while taking their pictures. Hahaha.
Anyways, I hung around for about an hour, but it was one of my first photos I shot when I walked through the door that I liked the most. The "Fairy Godmother" had these big, creepy eyes, well, in my opinion.
Good times. Only one more week and then I am back to the night shift! Woohoo!
