EAST CANTON, OHIO — For the 2015 Independence Day holiday, we went to my cousin’s home in East Canton. For the last several years he’s put on a pretty fun display for his family and friends to enjoy.
KENT, OHIO — While at the Stone Tavern waiting to photograph Bosephus, I took some pictures of the bands that went before them. I believe this band is called The Velcats.
AKRON, OHIO — Kimber met up with me for a second photo shoot. This time we left the home studio setup and traveled to the Goodyear Metro Park in Akron.
AKRON, OHIO — We spent the Independence Day holiday with a friend in Akron, Ohio. I took pictures from their apartment’s balcony. We could see fireworks going off way in the distance at other small towns across the horizon.
STOW, OHIO — On a second trip to that local park we came across a larger collection of birds than the day before. We were able to see ducks and geese swimming. There were even goslings following an adult around.
STOW, OHIO — A friend and I took our kids to play at a local park. There’s a pond there that seems to attract plenty of geese.
TALLMADGE, OHIO — This brown colored bird landed on the walkway out front of my apartment back in 2012. I’m not sure of what type of bird we’re looking at here. On the other hand, I’m fairly confident that this fella is a chipmunk. He had a burrow under the sidewalk that he’d run to…
KENT, OHIO — Aside from the band I was there for, I got pictures of several other bands. Here’s some shots from one of the other bands that was performing. Unfortunately, I don’t know who they are.
TALLMADGE, OHIO — I met Kimber through Model Mayhem, the online site that connects models and photographers. We got together for a shoot in early January 2012.
KENT, OHIO — Having been requested to the venue to photograph Low Watt Radio, I didn’t necessarily know any of the other bands. I believe this band is Coal Town based on the harmonica player’s shirt.
KENT, OHIO — I’m not sure of the name of this band. I was requested to shoot Low Watt Radio’s performance and ended up taking pictures of the rest of the bands.
TALLMADGE, OHIO — Rachel was a friend of mine. One time when we were hanging out I pulled out my camera and started taking some pictures. She had just gotten her hair done and it looked pretty cool. A short while ago Rachel passed. I was fortunate to have been one of her friends.
