When I bike more, I take fewer pictures. Makes sense. I'm still trying to figure out how to balance my variety of hobbies. I guess I just have to be willing to stop more on the bike. Today, I was going to take a bike ride, but instead I got super lazy and sat and knit and watch terrible Netflix all morning. Then, when I finally had the energy to the leave the house, I decided to walk. Just a short walk, with the iphone at the ready, and take a few pictures if anything caught my eye. I did take three longer bike rides this week, but I'm still working on getting some real mileage. Maybe next week. I had another little spending spree this week--some cycle-specific shorts and a new camera. I'm so, so excited about the camera--I can't wait for it to arrive (some time next week). I think I might even sign up for a photography class in June. I used to know about f-stops and apertures and such but I've forgotten it all. This new camera is a point and shoot but it's supposed to have a fantastic lens and be one of the best of its class. I just can't see getting a DSLR...too heavy. I know I won't use it. I am starting to chafe at the constraints of the iphone, though, and my old digital camera has a flaw in the lens so all its pictures are messed up. Anyway, I thought I'd share a couple of the pics from my walking tour...
The first one is an abandoned storefront near my house. The old places are getting restored and occupied, but slowly.
The second pic is a little house that almost looks like the country...except for the bars on the windows.
The last--mostly it was that church that struck me. I can't get the photo I want of this kind of building with the iphone. I'm hoping with the new camera I can get closer and still have a good angle. We'll see.
Grateful for: the resources to fund all my hobbies.
