Salt Lake Photo Walk

I went to a get-together with some of the Utah Peas today. We had wanted to be part of Scott Kelby's photo walk, but they had already accepted all the cities they were going to when one of our members applied to be part of it. We decided to have our own anyway. We started at the Gateway and did a few pictures there. Then we headed up South Temple, did some more pictures, then hopped on Trax to Temple Square. We did a few pictures around the temple. It was very crowded with weddings today. Then we rode Trax back to our cars at the Gateway. It was hot, but fun! Here are a few of my shots from today.






These first few shots are of the fountain at the Olympic Plaza at the Gateway. It's a popular spot filled with kids in bathing suits running through the water to cool off.




This historic house sits among all the other modern buildings around it.

Waiting at the Trax station for the next train. That's Travis and Paisley standing by the sculpture.

Several couples got married at the Salt Lake Temple this morning. Here is one posing for a photo.

.......and here are several photographers capturing the moment.

And finally, the Salt Lake Temple. The sky really was that blue!

Looks like fun....I'm sorry I missed it! I need to take some time to wander downtown one of these days. The sky really was that blue today (love your temple picture)....I kept getting distracted by the beautiful blue and white puffy clouds when I was supposed to be photographing the football game. You can see my football photos if you want to look...there is a link to the my football blog from my family blog!

Looks like you guys had a total blast and caught some really great scenes. I would love to do something like that around here, but I think I might be the only one on the walk if I did! Hahaha.
