Iowa City

15 Jul

I wasn’t going to share any of my pictures from Iowa City because they really have nothing to do with the farm, but it’s Alphabe-Thursday‘s letter I.  That means I have to share some of my first efforts at street photography in beautiful Iowa City.

    I enjoyed your pics of Iowa City. However, I like your pics of your beautiful animals better!

      Thanks. I don’t usually get to take pictures other than my farm, so this was fun. I’ll be back to my regular farm posts tomorrow.

    love the light and reflections in several of these!

    • Teresa July 15, 2015 at 6:32 pm #

      It was a lot of fun to try and figure out the lighting and everything. Quite different from the farm.

      It really was a great way to get out of the hotel and not obsess about home.

    Looks as a very beautiful town ! I love to see towns shown by private people and not in a travel catalogue !

    • Teresa July 16, 2015 at 8:11 am #

      It is a very lovely college town. Lots of intellectuals, art, music, and literature. And bars.

    Gorgeous scenes, I love the water and sky shots. The reflections are pretty. The sculptures are neat too. Great tour, have a happy day!

    • Teresa July 16, 2015 at 8:11 am #

      Thanks, Eileen. It has a lot of beautiful artwork in the downtown area.

    You have a great eye for picking out the more unusual angles for a lot of these shots and I have looked at your gallery and am so happy that you shared these street sccenes with us.
