The Kid did a couple of weeks of art camp at Burst of Butterflies last summer and very much enjoyed it, so we signed up for a few more weeks this year.
With all that’s going on, they were able to create an online option (which I was wary of, to be honest); his first week was last week.
It was well-organized and ran fairly smoothly. He needed some help, but after the first day, my help was minimal. And he made some cool stuff. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend them!
But ask him if you can take his picture and you’re likely to get something like this:
Of course, there continue to be walks through the neighborhood and along the canal. I was pretty excited to see this guy and equally excited that he stuck around for a while and posed.
As usual, photos of the flowers and other things I passed by.
Often, we have amazing sunsets in this area, probably from all the dust. The evening I was out walking, what I was offered and was able to capture wasn’t too shabby.
Finally, my first attempt at long-exposure shots while playing with sparklers yielded decent results. Have work to do to do better, and the super hero was happy with the results of his last pose.
