Garden Lights

As 2013 draws to a close, I shall breathe a sigh of relief.  It has NOT been a good year and I will be glad to see the back of it.  As my best friend and I always say, next year has to be better.  Sometimes that happens and sometimes not - but in this case it simply must be true.  

All that said, we spent a lovely evening with friends yesterday at the Atlanta Botanical Garden looking at their light display.  It meant I got to play with the shutter speed setting on my camera and got some interesting photos.  Perhaps my resolution for this New Year should be that I will finally take a photography class.

Atlanta Fair

A few weeks ago, on a gorgeous spring day, Charles and I ventured out to the Atlanta Fair.  Held every March in a parking lot across the highway from Turner Field, it's become a rite of spring for me.  I have fond memories of going to (or working at) the Illinois State Fair for almost every year of my first 2 decades of life.  Probably because of that, I go to fairs every chance I get and love every flimsy ride and greasy food.

Here in Atlanta, Labor Day weekend means DragonCon!  While we didn't buy tickets this year to go to the convention itself, I did make it to the parade and got some interesting pictures of terrific costumes.

All shot with zoom-lens and auto focus since things were moving by so fast!

Pictures of People

The most number of pictures from my camera have been pictures of people.  Some of them are awful, most of them are nothing special.  But I do like how these turned out.  

Nothing special about aperture or shutter speed here.  Just using automatic setting for its convenience.
