Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.
..and I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

We went on a little adventure today. #igers_nwo #theohiocollective #ohiobeautiful #ig_shotz #familytrails
"Jimmy's Story" I've been in a bit of a funk lately so when @rynbassett invited me downtown last night for some photography, I leapt at the chance. It was a gorgeous night in Cleveland so we headed to Wendy Park and walked towards the renovated coastguard station. It felt amazing to just be outside with the lake breeze and I wasn't even taking many photos and was okay with that. I stood off watching the sunset by myself for a minute and a family with a couple Happy Birthday balloons walked directly towards me. The mother, Elaine, suddenly said to me, "It would've been my son's 35th birthday today. He used to come here to fish. His name was James." Elaine and her other son, Matt, then huddled close together, embraced and released the balloons in James' memory. The balloons floated up and away, backlit by a beautiful, summer sunset. We talked for a good twenty minutes afterward about her son, some of the struggles we all had been going through and how we all thought it was meant to be that we had met. I sent her an email and here was the reply: "I’m so happy to have met you, my son brought you into our lives for a reason last night. I needed you and maybe…….just maybe….….you needed us. Thank you for sharing our sad / happy birthday celebration for my son James; it was just what I needed. I feel messages from my son all the time, he was my first born, we were a lot alike, he knew me better than I knew myself and it would make him sad / angry to see me crying and sad all the time so he does these beautiful things just when he knows I need it most. My son James died of Crohn’s Disease on June 30, 2011 at the age of 27 and I’d love to meet you for coffee and share his story, that would be wonderful. And I’d love to hear your story. That’s what friends are for." #myohioadventure #VisitOhioState #ohiogram #roamohio #midwestmoment #ohioexplored #theohiocollective #HeartofOhio #midwest #theohiocollective #cleveland #clevelandmagazine #ohio magazine #clevelandgram #cle_news #clevelandovereverything #clevelander #clevelandisthecity #clevelandthatilove #clevelandisthecity #ThisisCLE #clegram #clevelanddotcom #clevelandscene #onlyincleveland #wkyc #newsherald

For me, taking pictures is all about letting your confidence and personality shine through and through ✨
I’ll be traveling over the next few weeks - a quick visit to the Deep South and then a leisurely road trip to NW Ontario. I will still be posting, just not as regularly. Thank you for taking a peek and my pictures! . . . . #naturehippys #natures_hub #naturelovers #naturephotography #naturalworld #igcbus #igersmidwest #igerscolumbus #ohioexplored #theohiocollective #inspiredbyohio #naturalohio #eye_for_earth #macro_brilliance #shotoniphone #macro_drama #macro_delight #ig_closeups #macro #moodynature #macrophotography #macro_freaks #macronature #macroworld #macro_vision #macro_holics #ztylus #ztylusmacro

Launch Team Highlight: Andrea Plummer —— Why Ethos? // Family. That one word alone is my why. For years I have had to navigate day to day life with my family thousands of miles away from me. However, I have been incredibly blessed with individuals in church who saw the need for family in my life, stepped in, and filled the empty voids. Truly making me feel like I mattered. With transitioning into a new city and coming alongside Ethos Church and the mission that is to, “Love all people in Jesus’ name.” I see the opportunity to be the family to those who lack it, who desperately desire it and may not even know it, and to help fill voids in lives. To take on the responsibility to love people in a way that they know they are not alone and they truly matter. I take the mission of Ethos to heart and I wholeheartedly believe that this church is going to radically change peoples lives!
A summer love, a beach romance Sought her kisses in the sand Two young hearts filled with fire Lost in never-neverland.

A clean slate. These beachcombers can be easily found one the coasts of oceans while they’re more uncommon in the Great Lakes region. Lake Erie is basically a mini ocean though. 🌞🌊 ∥ Sanderling (Calidris alba)
What a great Morning! There was so much haze from the humidity this morning I had to punch the dehaze to the limits. May not be the greatest but why not share. #findingyourdirection #ohioexplored #glasscityballoonrace #theohiocollective #hotairballoon #exploreyourworld #explore #outdoors #amazing #amazing_fs #sonyimages #sonya9

Caesar Creek State Park, near Waynesville, OH, is a favored place to watch colorful sunsets.  On this day, I encountered difficulty finding foreground subjects do the reservoir’s high waters.  Not wanting to see a colorful sunset go to waste, I tried to improvise a foreground subject by creating a successful set of ripple marks from a skipped rock.  After practicing my technique and then synchronizing my throw with the camera’s timer, I caught this peaceful image.  #myohioadventure #theohiocollective #ohioisbeautiful #igersohio #igersmidwest #finditohio #landscape_captures #decoratewithart

Caught a great smile in the midst of fun play at the playscape 😀🎉
I wouldn’t be a true Iger without a box camera shot now and then. It just took me nearly four years to post my second one. . . #igerscolumbus #igcbus #theohiocollective #browniecamera #boxcamera #colorsplash_bu #colorsplash_of_our_world #tgif_colorsplash #colorsplash_mx #colorsplash
The Leetonia Beehive Coke Ovens, also known as Cherry Valley Coke Ovens Arboretum, consisted of 200 coke ovens built by the Leetonia Iron and Coal Company in 1866. The coke ovens, blast furnaces and rolling mill was one of the largest employers for the town of Leetonia until it closed in 1930. The function of the "beehive" coke ovens was to purify coal and turn it into coke. The coke was burned in furnaces that produced iron and steel. The site was nearly forgotten for over 50 years until a group of concerned citizens began cleanup efforts. The site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. The park includes 10 acres that support this historic piece of industrial history and 25 additional acres of nature preserve. Outside of the Connellsville Coke District in Pennsylvania, the site represents one of the largest remaining site of intact beehive coke ovens in North America. #ohioland
It’s a beautiful day in downtown Columbus!
