Friday morning I decided that I would use my feet as my only zoom so on when the 50mm prime lens. It turned out to be an interesting day.
First, bored waiting at the bank I picked up the camera and stared shooting. It was raining and I created this. It has some texture and I might be able to use it to blend with another picture.
While out to lunch I noticed the tin of cigars I had purchased to give out for my son’s birthday.
One of the recent weekend challenges on a blog that I read was to produce a diptych showing the contrast of winter to spring. Well here in the Springs we have not see very much spring yet. There are a few trees with leaves and buds forming but not many. Here is the first picture in the series. Later this month or next I will have to return and take another.
Finally we ended the day at Eli’s grandparents house. While my mother was holding him I captured some of these pictures.
Most of the pictures were taken with a very shallow depth of field with the exception of the stream. This just happens to be one of the features of the lens that I may have over used today but at least I was taking some pictures and posting them. Every time is an improvement in the work flow.
It almost ended up being a day in all black and white but I couldn’t resist this picture.
