Snapshots of Raleigh, Part II

I’m back from Raleigh, NC but wanted to share more photos from the trip!  Last week I shared these photos, and now here’s another set!

I went to the North Carolina Museum of Art two days in a row last week.  It’s that awesome! There are 2 buildings housing artwork and there are multiple sculptures in the surrounding museum park and trails and I still didn’t get to see everything!  Again, I’d highly recommend a visit there!

I even lost my lens cap twice and had to retrace my steps quite a bit to find it each time!

There are even remains (the smokestack below and some other sculptures) of the old youth prison that was once housed there!raleigh-5-2

Then, the next day, I had the opportunity to go back to the Raleigh Rose Garden and do some portraits with some local models. One of the models was late, so I unfortunately didn’t get many photos with her due to time restraints, but it was still really fun to work with them, as well as the other 2 photographers who were there!

Overall, I really enjoyed my visit. The weather was great, the city was really fun to explore and everyone that I met was extremely nice.  Even that far North (even though NC is still technically the “South”), Southern hospitality is still easy to find!

  1. Those are some great photos! Lots of artistry and unique angles. And apparently, I had previously missed part one of this, so I went back and saw it, too. Good stuff! It’s fun to just get out and shoot sometimes. I need to do that more, too.
