a nature walk... with my camera


Last Wednesday I spent my lunch break on a little nature walk with a girlfriend of mine. It was fabulous... just what I needed last week. My friend recently got a new camera for Christmas and wanted to get familiar with it. So we set a date to hang out... just the 2 of us... and our cameras. It was so, so great.

I wanted to play with my 60 mm Macro lens, so I set out to take a lot of close-up and detail shots...



I was mainly looking for texture and repeated patterns...



Since it is winter in Louisville, I wasn't expecting to find much color... but I was surprised a couple of times by a few mossy patches and these vibrant berries...



Isn't my friend Shelby just adorable??


I love how having my camera with me forces me to look at things that I would normally pass right by or step on...




I encourage you to take your camera with you on your next walk... I bet you'll be surprised at what you see through the lens...
