Big Fun

Big Fun

My family and I went for a walk along some trails. Along the way there were a couple of concrete paths and out in the middle of no-where was this spray painted on the ground…Big Fun…not sure what it’s purpose was, but, we were having big fun during our fall walk.

So, I was able to visit New York a couple of months ago. My shooting that week was horrible. I had stabbed myself in the hand with a knife about 4 days before I left (a whole other story of my total lack of common sense sometimes) so I was popping pain pills. Plus I couldn’t grasp the trigger of my tripod without grimacing. Overall I was super disappointed with the shots I got there. I don’t know if it was the pain pills or lack of sleep, but I also shot a bunch of stuff at ISO 1600 for some stupid reason. Anyways, I hope I get to go back sometime with a clearer head and fully functional hand!

Hooray for decent weather! I finally got to get out and do some shooting! I wandered around the Springfield downtown area for awhile. I didn’t get as many good shots as I had hoped for, but it was sure relaxing. Plus I finally got to use my new Manfrotto 3021 tripod and 3265 Grip action head and man I love it! It’s so…steady and well controlled. I also tried out my new infrared lens filter, but I must have been doing something wrong because I got a bunch shots that look like something from an acid trip or something. They all came out a weird pinkish red tint. I’ll have to do some research on that later!

What was your first thought when you saw this picture? Don’t be shy, you aren’t going to hurt my feelings. Did the caption sway what you feel or think? Do you like it when a photoblog has more than just a picture each day? To me it’s not that great a shot, technically, but I’ve been thinking more and more that getting and posting the perfect shot isn’t the end goal. The hotel holds no particular significance. But, it takes me back to a day and a feeling. A day and a feeling that you didn’t experience, but that’s the blog part of photoblog I guess.
