While I had Pau @ the studio I asked her to model me for a couple ideas I had in mind for my personal work and an upcoming exhibition. Here are those 2 photos.
What hides Inside
The cutest baby girl ever! She is my niece. I am in love with this little human, every time she smiles it melts my heart. Since day one I set up a permanent studio in my bedroom to take advantage of every minute i could to shoot photos.
I also had the chance to photograph her outside under the beautiful apple trees in her home, I even built a nest for the occasion.
And of course some with mommy and daddy and her furry brothers
Le Claire is such a great little town. In my last visits we found a fair going on along the river side because that weekend was going to be the Tug Fest. I love fairs, they are very interesting photo subjects, and even though it was being set up I could still shot a few frames. Of course we did some selfies too, but that day I forgot the selfie stick home so K’s arm had to do!
I also visited the Buffalo Bill Museum, very interesting place! it is filled with a lot of history and old objects, Santi is going to love it and i am sure my would have gone nuts there if he had the chance to see it. I loved the museum!
I had the chance to go back at night, I got to see the fireworks on the river form the car on our way there and then went to the fair, we listened to the Brat Pack group and even danced a bit to some oldies.
This was my last night in Iowa before I head back home. I loved Le Claire and I hope to be back soon.
Le Claire was one of my favorite places too, it is a super charming small town full of life. We went there a few times and I got to see a lot of it. On our way there the interesting sights started and of course we had to have a few selfies of the group
It has a lot of interesting stores full of whatever thing you can imagine. For starters we went to see the American Pickers store, I had no idea of this show but I loved the store anyways!
The town is very nice with great nice and charming constructions
There is a super nice Popcorn Store with the best popcorn I’ve ever tried in my life and of course the other Wide River Winery!
The “Grasshoppers” is a house that has all it’s rooms filled with any thing you might imagine you want to buy, both old and new, there are some stairs that take you to the winery and they sell everything wine related, even the barn is full of old stuff for sale. Very nice place, I could spend a whole day in there!
We also got the chance to make a tour in the Mississippi River Distilling Company where we learned everything about how the do whiskey and some other liquors.
Richie was left out of the selfie because he was not behaving,so the boss left him out…
But then she made up her mind and shot another one with him in it 😀
We had a great day in Le Claire, we went to have dinner to Davenport and on our way back home we saw some deer on the side of the road!! I couldn’t belive it, they were there by our side and stood there for 15 minutes without moving at all, seemed like they were posing for my lens! I was explained by the expert that they thought I couldn’t see them and that was why they stood so still. Mom was behind watching as I took a lof of pictures of this little ones. I was so excited! like really really excited! The perfect end for another great day in Iowa!
