This week, I began “A Travel Story with Kevin Miyazaki,” an online course in travel photography hosted by Jessica Kaminski’s JsKool and featuring the talents of Kevin Miyazaki, a well-regarded professional photographer who has traveled the world shooting for publications such as Conde Nast Traveler, Martha Stewart Living, and The New York Times. Atop this post is part of our first assignment, one of three each week during this month-long class. So, I will be a bit busy over the next month, but I hope to learn better storytelling through photography, and I’ll post up some more shots once the class is completed. In the interim, enjoy these outstanding travel photos by Kevin Miyazaki on his website here.
The image above? I took it this evening on my way to a meeting at school. This is Lakefront Park in Pewaukee, Wisconsin as summer kicks off here. Now that the sun is shining, people flock to the beach to soak in the sun and enjoy all the lake has to offer. Wednesday nights are “Waterfront Wednesdays” and feature live bands. Thursday nights are the weekly water ski shows put on by the Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club. Throughout the summer are other events, and any day of the week you will find plenty of sunbathers, boaters, shoppers, and families, out to enjoy the weather. Unfortunately, the warmth isn’t here for long, which is why we make sure to make our way to the Caribbean once the snow flies.
Have a great June!
