Spring Mill Park in the Wintertime

Brianna, J,  and I headed out to Spring Mill Park today. The place was completely abandoned (which was perfect) so we had it to ourselves. I have to say, I wasn’t missing the cheesy period costumes (women churning butter, old men at the apothecary, etc. etc.).

It was an excellent opportunity to get reacquainted with shooting in monochrome using the 50 MM + all manual controls (focus, exposure, etc.) I’m a stickler for manual focus.

Speaking of period costumes, here are a few shots from today:Image

That’s right. Real men carry their womens’…necessary things.

The heart of Pioneer Village.

An interesting growth atop the entrance to the garden.

Josh composes a shot using the trusty “road warrior”, also known as the Canon G3.

A quick self port. in the ladies restroom. Yes, those are pajamas…

Josh carries Chance in his jacket. All together now…”Awww….”

And this is why I’ve fallen in love all over again with the 50 MM. This bench shot is straight out of the camera. (Had to lay on my back in the snow to get the shot- but I got it.)
