I walk around my neighborhood in Seattle almost everyday. It can be a bit boring walking the same route; however, when I take my camera and a different lens with me I find that each walk becomes a new experience! This past weekend was a special treat. We had great weather (hint, no rain) and the skies were magnificent! I decided to take two lenses that I haven’t used in a while - my Lensbaby Twist 60 and Edge 50 - to see what I could capture.
Although I normally use my Twist 60 for close ups, I was pleased that I could capture interesting landscape images.
I also enjoyed experimenting with my Lensbaby Edge 50. The first morning the sky was so amazing and it kept changing as I made my way around the hill.
On a different day, another story unfolded.
I came across this fellow sitting on the wall at Kerry Park. Although the park was busy, he seemed so calm that I was drawn to take these images.
I loved capturing these images of our Seattle skies. There were times that what I saw through my camera took my breath away.
One of the reasons that I was able to capture interesting images was that I used different lenses. My Twist 60 and Edge 50 made me slow down and compose with purpose. I love that and look forward to experimenting more in the future.
