Make Time to Make Photos

One of my photography groups had it’s annual “Exploring Victoria’s Hidden Places” photo walk. Victoria is such a photographic town, and it does have some really cool places just outside the normal vision of the city.

It was a bit of a rainy day, and maybe because of that there were only 5 of us doing the walk. But sometimes a small group is more fun, and the light was great. I also gave myself the challenge of using my Lensbaby lens for most of the shots.

The nice thing about my Lensbaby is it gives a very nice sense of depth. One of the challenges is that it is a manual focus lens. I kept hitting my focus button as I pointed the camera….

Thanks to Mike for hosting and guiding us, and thanks to the participants for… participating…
