In this picture there were two guys getting arrested as soon as I got to Columbus..lol.. I didn't want to get too close..
I liked the look of this building from the side.
I thought that the shapes, lines, and shadowing were interesting here.
This is the Short North arch..I like the light bulbs..
This picture was interesting from many angles.
What a decorative piece..I like the curves, and the lines.
I love this picture..This is a bathroom in Betty's, a restaurant in Columbus.I moved out of the way so that I could get a picture of the lady in the mirror..
Such a charming man..this is all artwork in the bathroom.
and here is the lady..not in the mirror.
I thought this was funny..
This is the bar at Betty's...
more pics of the restaurant..
Betty's all over the walls..
This is a shop that I passed.. I thought there display was happy..and full of spring.
I wanted to capture the texture up-close in this dress.
I LOVE these Manichean's!
They are soo....cute!
This shop was soo cute..
These displays are so fun.
as you can see..I love these. I wish I knew where they came from.
I thought these girls were cute, and had their own sense of style.. I love personal style.
What do you think of my pictures from Columbus?
In closing I want to say, never give up on the things that you are passionate about..the things that you love, and want to do. There will always be people who think that what you do are stupid, not productive, or important. If you work hard at anything you enjoy, and are good at..with time you will be where you are meant to be. Follow your dreams, and go down the bumpy roads... with time, good things will happen. God has given us all talents and they all come in many different forms. Nothing that you love and are passionate about is "stupid", and of no value.
Mothers have many jobs, we are doctors, cooks, taxi drivers, maids, thrifty shoppers, psychologists, bell hops, planners, providers, models etc.. the list goes on and on, and even when you lay down at night the list continues. Often times these things are not seen, and we are living the "good life"...Mother's have no paid vacations, no major income for the many jobs that we provide, no breaks..(ladies..you know you cant step into the bathroom without a kid wanting to know what you are doing in the toilet..as if it were a magical thing that they have to see..)..lol.
To all stay-at-home mom's with no one who recognizes your worth...I see it. If you look at your kids you will see it...Follow your dreams, whatever they may be, as well as being there for your family. Take the time to feel beautiful, and see beauty everywhere..and within yourself.
