Shooting at the Railroad Tracks

We went to downtown Fresno so my friend could photograph her son in his rented suit (for 6th grade promotion). Shot these while hanging out around the graffiti-laden decommissioned railroad cars.

Against another railroad car

Lauren and her friend explore the tracks (those Target shopping carts sure are a long way from home)

She climbed up this decommissioned
railway car and found a seat

My favorite shot of the day

Lauren and Jacob wait at the car.
Back to teenage-ness. She's texting for showtimes at the movies.

Lauren caught an elbow near her nose playing basketball yesterday. I was afraid she might have broken her nose (no fracture ... thank you, Lord!) But, her eye started to swell and I prepared her for the impending shiner. She's not happy about it, but her eye is getting more purple as time goes on.

When I was 11, I got my first shiner (playing softball with my Dad). Two summers ago, I got hit by an errant softball between the eyes ... fractured/cut my nose and got two MORE shiners. (Btw, Boredom makes you shoot pictures like this from your cellphone).

Well, me and my girl now share the Shiner Experience. Hopefully, that's all part of our past!
