A warm winter walk

The weather in my area this past week was surreal. For a midwestern state to experience 40’s in February is amazing. So while visiting my parents,  my family & I decided to take full advantage of the mild weather by going for walk. What a fantastic time! Naturally, I brought my camera along and to be honest, I was equally excited about the opportunity to photograph a new environment and people. It was a truly beautiful afternoon, which I think translated thru the lighting of the photos.

In addition, there was some great shadow effects so I attempted some black & white as well.

The only question that came up in my mind was the bit of bokeh that occurred when I was standing facing the sun. It was a cloudless day, and I am just wondering if this perhaps was too much lighting for the camera? I will try to research what can cause this. It does create a neat quality in some images, but in others it just looks like a blob.

My brothers naturally were emphatically harassing me about going too slow, holding everyone up, and dawdling. What’s a snap-happy sister to do? Hopefully the end product appeases them, but they’re brothers so probably not. It’s their job to poke fun of things I like.

Here are a few shots from the walk. Fyi: I love my youngest bro, but he didn’t make the cut this time around he had the uh…pants too low syndrome going on. Next time!
