Most of you know I do not normally photograph people, but there are just some events that you can’t skip.  I enjoy the Extreme Mud War up in St Pete and tonight Neon Vibe held a 5K event in Lakewood Ranch.   The participants are given packets of color powder that they pour or throw on one another.  Some were very creative and others seemed just to have it dumped on them.  This is just a few of the people there.  It was quite a crowd of all ages, on crutches and a couple of people were even in wheelchairs.

Thank you Diane for telling me about this and asking me to join in on the fun at the Premier Sports Campus.

Week 2 – A4 – Night Shot

A4 Night Shot

Taken tonight as the sun set throwing the purples and yellows with some soft clouds that looked like I had blurred them (but mother nature did that).  I had planned on taking this from Dunedin but the gathering was canceled due to the inclement weather (which cleared of course).

I did not want to use reflections theme yet which is why I selected this theme.

47 Summer Fun-5Summer Fun – what fun you find at festivals.  This was Tampapalooza 2014 held this weekend at the Tampa – State Fairgrounds.  It was a free event (except for parking) with free children’s activities, free children’s face painting, free entertainment for the whole family, including musicians, artists, stilt walkers and local bands.

There was plenty of bouncing things for the kids to play on, a huge variety of festival type food, things for sale and of course, variety of people.  The last photo is display of wind chimes made with cut glass ( or at least it sounded like glass when they touched).  And let’s not forget the kind staff at Zephryhills Water booth – who gave one hot photographer a well needed glass of water.   It was very very hot out there walking around.
