I told you that I wouldn’t fail again today. I said I was going to actually unpack my camera and take some pictures. And I did. Woo!
So I decided to explore an area of town that I have been eyeing for a while. There’s a big river that runs through town & there are lots of paths and trees and benches that run alongside it. It’s a pretty nice place. I went there today and although it was HOT & SUNNY (read: sweaty) I got a few keepers.
And then…while I was shooting…I noticed an old-school boat. Sorry I don’t know anything about boats. I mean I’m from a Midwestern, land-locked town. Sure we had a river…but I never got in it. And if I did…I wasn’t there to learn about boats! I just know this was an old style one. With the big paddle thing on the back. I hope someone know what I’m talking about!
Anyway, talk about good timing! What a perfect prop for my pictures!
And then because I seem to like geometric shapes, repletion & pattern…I found this park bench interesting.
It felt really nice to get out my camera again. I’ve been in a funk lately. This move was a big one for me. I left everyone behind and I think it was getting to me at first. My daily routine changed dramatically as did my support system & the climate. It’s no joke saying that the South is HOT! But I’m trying to take the advice of one of my favorite bloggers (Confessions of a Young Married Couple) to “bloom where I am planted“. And I think this was a good step in the right direction.
