Happy Thanksgiving!

An abstract photo of a tree in Atlanta in the fall

Life in the Abstract

I love making abstract photos. It's another way to see the world through different eyes.

It's taken me a while to hone this technique. It requires twisting the zoom lens as you shoot the photo. The key is keeping focus in the middle of the photo, which isn't always easy while you're turning the zoom lens and holding the camera at the same time!

Your shutter speed needs to be slow. The above photo was taken at 1/5th, f/22, ISO 100. I took it on the Sony a6000 with a 55-210mm lens. 

It's a photo of a Fall tree. I took it on Saturday on an Atlanta Urban Photo Walkers photo walk on Freedom Park Trail. The leaves were dark browns and reds.

The photo below really captured the fall colors. It was taken a couple of weeks ago by my house. 

What do you think?

Today's a busy day.

I was up at 5. Took my middle child to the airport at 6. She's spending Thanksgiving with her sister, Jackie, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew in Seattle.

I'm a little jealous. I miss the little buggers and can't wait to see and hold them. Hoping that will be soon!

I'll be back to the airport this evening to pick up the youngest. She's coming in from Chicago and will be with me and the family tomorrow. 

My son is with his wife's family in Kentucky for the holiday. 

Whew! It's a busy crew. 

Today I've got a list as long as my arm of things to get done.

Blog post

Content writing... Okay...maybe not as long as my arm. I won't bore you with the rest of the list.

I don't think I'll have time to get any of my abstracts up on the website, but I'll get to it soon. 


I'm relaxing and having fun. I hope you are too!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

See you between the raindrops!
