Fooling Around

06Jan11

Not yet wanting to get down to business, I couldn’t let the season pass without making my annual trip to Longwood Gardens. On this day, tripods were only allowed indoors until 1:00 so I spent much of the morning in the conservatory with my tripod, carefully lining up my shots and scrutinizing over my settings. Before I knew it, it was time to take the tripod back to the car. I decided to leave my camera bag there too and just bring the camera with my recently acquired 50mm f/1.4 lens mounted. (This is Canon’s more affordable 50mm lens as compared to the f/1.2 model.) I felt unencumbered without the heavy bag, tripod and big lens. I enjoyed walking the grounds and shooting hand-held. I kept the aperture on f/1.4 to test out the reason I bought the lens in the first place and had a lot of fun making the following images. I think it’s a good idea to take a break and just ‘fool around’ every once in in a while!
