I took this shot back in May 2009 in one of my favorite places period, HersheyPark in Hershey, PA! Always love to hit HersheyPark each year as early in the Spring as possible, and usually get Season Passes!
After a long night of working my “night hustle” as Manager at Papa John’s Pizza, and no sleep, myself, my girlfriend Brandi, her Mother & Sister, and my Mother & Sister headed to Hershey early yesterday morning after getting gas, coffee, etc…
Once we arrived at the park complex we first stopped at the Giant Centre Box Office to purchase tickets for my Mother & Sister to attend last night’s Paramore concert at the Star Pavillion at HersheyPark Stadium. It was a gift for my Sister’s 14th Birthday which was a few months back. Once we purchased their tickets and got settled into the park it was right off to the Boardwalk! It was pretty busy yesterday so we just messed around in the Shore and Intercoastal Waterway (wave pool and lazy river).
Afterwards we walked around the rest of the park, explored ZooAmerica, played some games, and messed around in the Arcade. After a few hours of fun we split ways with my Mother & Sister as they worked their way towards the front of the park and eventually to the concert at the Star Pavillion, which would see them gone for the rest of the night.
Brandi and I, and her Mom & Sister, spent the rest of the night together messing around the park. We all rode Fahrenheit and Great Bear, two of the park’s best Rollercoasters. Her Mom wasn’t too big on either, to say the least. LOL. We ate some good food, and had a blast. We even checked out HersheyPark’s one cafe which serves cups of beer…. at $5.75 a pop!
After an exhausting yet fun day around 10:30 PM we worked our way towards the Chocolate World, took the free ride as we’ve done so many times in the past, and got our free chocolate bar! Perfect ending to a great day! A little bit later we met up with my Mom & Sister, talked about everyone’s day, and eventually headed home after grabbing a quick bite to eat nearby…..
Well guys, that pretty much wraps up the 2010 OUP Photography Tour! Everyone who checked it out, I thank you so, SO much! I really do appreciate it. However, we’re far from done, as the 2011 OUP Photography Tour is right around the corner!
As promised, next Saturday, August 14th, I will be posting the “end-of-2010 OUP Photography Tour secret project” which I’ve been talking about for months. I will also be announcing the 2011 OUP Photography Tour’s Tour Dates!
Thanks again guys!
It’s been a blast! Looking forward to 2011 and beyond!
I always like to say that you just never know where I might go or when, and today was a perfect example of that!
Check it out!
Hello everyone and welcome to this brand new OUP Photography Tour blog! The 2010 OUP Photography Tour is going strong right now, and you can find updates at the following address:
We’ve already been to Hershey, Pennsylvania, Doswell, Virginia, Outer Banks, North Carolina, and a few random places in between. July is going to be bringing a few more stops, so check out the page for details! The main goal of the OUP Photography Tour is to have fun. To explore various places, persue my passion of photography, and have a blast while doing so. One day I would love to do nothing more than this Tour. It took taking a chance and spending money out-of-pocket to start doing this Tour to realize that it’s a true passion of mine not only shooting photography, but traveling as well. Together they are the perfect fit.
If you decide that you like what I do you can get more information on my photography at the following address:
Buy something! Support me a little bit!
Or you can feel free to contact me and ask me anything. Any possible business ideas you may have, any suggestions, ANYTHING.
I will respond to everything… I promise.
Right now I am working on the details of the 2011 OUP Photography Tour. I should have some more information on that shortly. I plan on doing this constantly until it becomes successful or leads to an awesome job/opportunity, etc… so I decided that making this page, and eventually adding its own domain name, was the best option.
You’ll hear more from me soon!
