Texas has ALL the Summer...

Hello, friends!  I recently returned from another short trip to Texas.  I got to catch up with old friends, catch up with family.  The highlight and reason for my visit was to attend my first family reunion ever.  It was a beautiful experience.  I made the conscious effort a few years back to start asking questions about family history and any stories my dad and relatives could remember.  Having lost people, I realize these are things I want to know and it's my responsibility to ask.  At the reunion, I was able to put faces to stories, figure out where I came from, and see the cycle of life repeating itself with the cutest new generation reflected in the eyes of the children.  It was a great day, especially because when I go to Texas, I am constantly scrambling to see everyone, and usually need a few days of vacation after my 'vacation' just to relax; I was able to see some folks I would never had time to see if it weren't for the gathering.

Now that I am back in Milwaukee, I can see that Texas is being very selfish with the heat.  It's downright suffocating in Texas, and barely breaking 75 here. Needless to say, I'm a bit chilly, but thankful to be home.  Summerfest is in full swing, and there is a great deal of 'people watching' happening from my 3rd floor abode.  My cat also missed me, and I have missed my adopted city and family!  I just love Milwaukee, and even though it isn't the perfect city, I enjoy the eclectic mix of people, the stories they have to tell, the history of this city, and how perfect it is for me.  I miss my family, and I know they miss me, but I just have to admit that I love this city...for an Army Brat, feeling like you're 'home' is kinda a big deal.  That's how I feel here.  I'm employed and a working photographer at a small company that has always looked out for me; I have conservative and liberal friends;  I hang out with hippies, punks, travelers, artists, and 9-5ers, and they are all in this world I call home.  Milwaukee.  

I have made the decision to remove my Angela Wangrud Photography page from Facebook.  For over 2 months now I have not been successful at uploading, editing content, or even trying to work with FB to correct these issues.  Also, FB has a policy quite unfriendly toward copywrite laws, so I am throwing in the towel with them.  Anything of interest will now only be uploaded on this website, and I will provide a link on FB.  

My Repo shoot is still bubbling over in my mind...I will post updates about that soon.  In the meantime, have a safe and happy 4th!
