Packing your sketch book around is a great idea. There is always that question, “Do I bring it or not?” “Will I have time to sketch?” Will it just get in the way?” I’ve found it’s better to have it on hand. If something comes up, I’m ready.

On the 24th or July our extended family stakes out a spot at Liberty Park for the Days of 47 Parade. It’s a great opportunity for picture taking and sketching. Below are some examples from the day.
