Possibilities

Floral, Macro

When I go for a walk around the neighborhood there is one section of my route where the street has a fairly wide meridian. The city has built stone flower gardens every 30-40 yards in the meridian. They do a fairly good job of keeping the gardens filled with flowers, changing out the varieties as the season changes. I noticed the colorful arrangements currently on display last weekend as I returned from a trip to the store.

I attached the macro lens to the camera and headed out after feeding the cats hoping for a chance to capture some different flowers. I’m sure the drivers passing by wondered what that guy was doing kneeling down next to the gardens but I was unwinding from the day in the bet way possible.

Walkabout

Outside Work, Midday

I have been back in the facility at work for the past two weeks. We are slowly letting people into the building while we work out the requirements and new procedures for working together in this new environment. We are an essential business (defense related) but that does not exempt us from following the state guidelines nor do we want to do anything to increase any risks to our employees.

Anyway, I couldn’t sit again during lunch yesterday so I attached the macro lens and went for a walk around the parking lot. Readers may recall I started this practice late last summer and it is a great way to get off my butt and find interesting images. Here are a couple of the lilies along the building.

Midday Walk

Mohawk River Trail

Late yesterday morning was a good time for a walk. It was warm but not hot with a small breeze to cool you off when needed. I thought another walk along the Mohawk River Trail would do me good. I packed a few lenses into a small messenger bag and headed out. There was no specific destination for this walk, the walk itself was the goal.

Before I even reached the start of the trail I decided I was going to capture as much as I could with the camera. When I started playing with cameras a few years ago I would capture images of everything. Now I have it in my head that every has be something I would print and hang on my wall. I don’t play with the camera as mush as I used to do when I was beginning. On this walk walk, if it caught my eye, I would photograph it and put it into a post.

I started with macro lens. The beginning of the trail does not have many scenic views but typically provides many opportunities for macro images. I slowed down my walk and let every color or spot of light have my focus. Little details most people would walk past deserved a look through the lens.
