03.19.17 Cleveland, Ohio

One thing that I love about native Clevelanders is that they are afraid of nothing. That’s one of the things I love about Logan: he’ll gladly drive us through parts of Cleveland that I’m too afraid to drive through.

I was raised in suburbia, it’s not completely my fault.

Our original plan was just to go to the Cleveland Museum of Art. I love Cleveland’s art museums, it’s something that makes Cleveland really cool.

Mac, instead of looking at 300-year-old art, was playing Pokémon on his phone.

We headed outside to try to find a way to the courtyard. The museum is doing lots of construction outside, so it was hard to find an entrance.

I turned my back for maybe 120 seconds and Sam climbed into the fountain.

I bought a 50mm f/1.4 lens the previous day and wanted to test out that nice focus point a bit.

It’s a lot different working with a straight up 50mm. I started photography with long range and telephoto zoom lens. I’m still learning to shoot close up, to be so close to the subject.

As I have mentioned maybe 30,000 times, I love candid photography. It’s hard to shoot candid when my shutter is fairly loud. The next three photos are the three seconds it took Mac to realize I was taking photos of him.

We headed to Waterloo for lunch. My favorite Cleveland pizzeria is a place called “Citizen Pie”. The greasiest pizza in a fire oven, it’s iconic.

Logan has always wanted to go across a highway overpass. In a quick second decision, he pulled onto a small neighborhood road and we headed up on the walkway.
