You know that moment when someone sits you down on their couch and thrusts a scrapbook of their vacation in your lap and insists that you look at every single page and points out all the fancy embellishments that they added to each page and the pretty papers and journaling that they did and all you want to do is grab the nearest gel pen and stab your eyes out? Well start looking for that sparkly colored gel pen.
These are my favorite pictures that I took, not all of them. (You’re welcome). Just because they’re my favorite does not mean they are technically perfect. Quite a few will be from my phone and I don’t think any will win any awards. In fact, a few should have been taken after I cleaned my lens. Yup, professional photographer I am not.
Last month we left San Antonio, TX and its 100 degree heat and landed in Rochester, NY in its 80 degree heat. It was like walking right smack dab into the middle of a S. TX fall season. We left Rochester as soon as we got a rental car and immediately drove to Geneva, NY where Josh has spent his entire summer playing baseball for the Geneva Twins.
We arrived just as the game was starting.
The next two pictures are an example of my lens needing a cleaning. Both Nolan and Chris’ faces are blurry.
Josh is the one with his glove in the air catching the ball.
He is going to hate me for posting this picture of him hitting a pop-up, but I love how every single person in this shot is looking straight up. Tells a story, right?! (Sorry Josh.)
In between games we visited Seneca Lake, one of the eleven finger lakes. A very cute conversation ensued with Nolan explaining to him that the lakes weren’t actually fingers, but merely resembled them on a map.
We followed Josh’s team to Hornell, NY and watched one last game before traveling to a whole ‘nother country.
Jakob and Nolan were chosen to run in a race in between innings in which they had to put the oversized uniform on and try to reach the finish line first. It was a fun ending to our time with Josh.
