It has been a few weeks in coming, but I'm getting ready for an apartment move this week and thought I would finally get a slideshow up from the Color Run event. It was a blast to photograph and everyone attending seemed to enjoy getting colored for a cause. See or order prints from the 2012 Denver Color Run here.
Wow what a wonderful day. I had the pleasure of photographing the New Albany Classic Invitational Grand Prix and Family Day in New Albany, Ohio. It was the 13th year for the classic and I think this is the second time I've photographed it. It seemed like it grew from the last time I photographed it.
It's been about seven or eight years since I last went. For the past few years it has been on a day I wasn't scheduled to work. As a freelance photographer though, I was thrilled to get the chance to photograph it. It is a classy and fun get together for families to enjoy a day out, and the event benefits the Columbus Coalition Against Family Violence.
The event is held at the homes of Les and Abigail Wexner and includes rides, a petting zoo, inflatable games, musical performances by nationally known performers and a horsey jumping contest as Angela Pace who helps welcome guests to the New Albany Classic Invitational Gran Prix has called it. The event includes internationally known riders, and this year's musical performances were by a band from New Albany called New Hollow and American Idol Star David Archuleta.
I photographed the members of New Hollow a few months ago for the newspaper in one of the members basements where they rehearsed. It was nice to see them perform. Here are some of the photos from the event.
