One thing I’d like to do a little more of this year is actually using my camera for the not-obvious things like vacations or birthday parties or whatever. I want to be more comfortable just playing with it, and looking for compositions I’d like to photograph. Last weekend we had a gorgeously sunny day for January, and I packed up my camera and lenses and started walking around my neighborhood.
I will never tire of photographic tree trunks!
The back of a cafe chair.
I love this so much with the light coming through the leaves!
Yes, I totally crept onto some stranger’s front porch to (quickly!) grab this shot. I’m a creeper, I guess, when awesome door knockers are involved!
This tree had dozens of bright blue glass bottles hanging from the branches, they were so cool looking!
You can see more of these pics on my Flickr set.
