I spent some time with friends at the lake recently. I was there to photograph the children so I brought my strobes and back drop and set them up in the small lakeside house of a mutual friend who is away in Africa. He has a private beach for a front yard. After breaking down the equipment following the shoot, we spent some time in the water. It was nice to get away from the city for a short spell. And speaking of Lake Erie, check out my friend Lisa’s new CD, Oh Lake Erie. All the songs on the CD were written by Lisa right here at the place where I spent the day. The owner of the house is a long time friend of hers.
