Today is the first day of a new blog circle! We’re posting monthly, following a different theme each month. I interpreted our first theme, “scenes from above,” two ways. Either I shot from above, looking down on the tops of things, or I pointed the camera up to capture what was above me.
I am still working on getting back into my daily practice with my DSLR, but I do have something for almost every day if I count my iPhone, so in honor of that, here are some geese who flew above me early in September during a walk in downtown Fredericksburg. My iPhone (which is still only a 4S) takes better pictures than my first digital camera in 2002, and I improve them a little in Lightroom.
At the VaHomeschoolers Not Back to School picnic we had wonderful shade.
On the 15th, my kids and I met some friends and spent a few hours at Pony Pasture, the rapids of the James River, climbing over the rocks and riding the current. It was still hot and we enjoyed getting wet, but a sign of impending autumn floated by.
I finally got serious about this project on the 24th, brought my DSLR along with me on a walk, and found many scenes from above.
More early signs of autumn . . .
Of course, as you may know, I am primarily a people photographer, so I was glad I thought of our blog circle theme last week while we were exploring this replica of Lewis and Clark’s boat at the Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center in Charlottesville.
He’s peering into a little square window to see the desk and two beds. You can see the whole boat if you click the link above.
Next month I hope to have fewer, better quality photos! Stay tuned. And remember to visit all the members of our blog circle. Next up is Ann Tyer .
