Photo Walks

As the weather warms I have decided that it would be fun to occasionally let the tripod go and just capture some of the things that catch my taking photo walks. It seems to me that it would be good for photographic practice, good to become more facile at another type of shooting, good for developing other ways of seeing and oh....not bad to get a little extra exercise either. Who knows, I might even work up the nerve to ask strangers if I could photograph them! This could end up being very interesting.....

Here are two 'things' that caught me eye on recent walks.
