Walk with a camera

I know I am supposed to exercise but I don't like to, however give me an excuse to take photos and I will get out and do it. So the idea is to trick myself into walking to where the subjects may be. In truth I know that there are things to photograph everywhere. I went for a walk with my friend Lynne and found many within a half mile of the house.

The day was sunny, great for shadow play.
Found an old wall that had great texture.
Texture and light is what it is all about.
Repetition makes for comfort and depth in this photo.

I love macro photography. This is actually a edge of a four inch wooden landscaping post.

Part of a grate for water drainage.

We take the same kind of camera walks. I like your photos very much! Thanks for coming to my blog today!

truly a gal after my own heart
I've just replaced a rather compact digital camera with one that has more telephoto and is therefore a bit bulkier. I must remember to never leave home without it, no matter how bulky.
Your photos are wonderul!!!

Hi Ginny! LOL - so I'm not the only one that doesn't like to exercise but is good at fooling one's mind? Good to know.
Your macros are extraordinary - I look forward to having a nice long surf around!

Hi Ginny. Love these shots. Interesting about what you say about your camera tempting you out on walks. I have the opposite problem - I love walks, but if I take the camera and my notebooks, I tend not to get very far! Love the macro pic.
