My daughter and I had the day off today so we went out for a hike together. She wanted to bring a camera so I let her use my backup with a small prime lens. We loved being out together and exploring in the woods.
My family and I just have just returned from an extra long weekend at Babcock State Park in West Virginia. The park is beautiful and home to the often photographed Cedar Creek Grist Mill. Trying to get an original image of the mill is nigh impossible at this point, but I took a few that I like, and for me, that is all that matters.
Other places we ventured too included Hawk’s Nest State Park, the New River Gorge Bridge, Cathedral Falls near Gauley Bridge and Plum Orchard Lake. West Virginia is a fantastic state for sight seeing and exploring. It seemed like everywhere we went, the landscaped was so impressive. I easily could have spent so much more time hiking around, but alas, I have to get back to my real job.
My family and I spent a great weekend at Laurelville for the bi-annual Association Weekend in our camper. It was a wonderful few days of time to spend with together in fellowship and volunteer for the camp.
Since coming home from Panama, there hasn’t been much time for photography around my house. Between work and other things, the camera has mostly stayed in the bag. Once in a while I pulled it out for some quick portrait sessions. With a few new babies in the extended family, I had some extra work.
Today was a chance to get out with some friends and hang out at the drag strip where some raced their cars. Since I don’t own anything fast, I brought my camera.
