I am often that guy. The guy who takes his camera at times and to places that most normal people don't bring a camera. I'm not talking about a camera phone or a small point and shoot, I am talking about an over sized, SLR with a large lens. The kind of camera that gets people to comment on how nice that camera is. I don't know why size equals quality, but in cameras people often see it that way. Nonetheless, I was that guy once again on Saturday morning.
On our walk to Bread Co. (a.k.a. Panera) I decided to lug along my camera. (Yes. the big obnoxious one) I started the day with a shot of my shoes. They are new and I like them. I also thought the contrast between the new, clean canvas and the damp, textured sidewalk looked cool. Trying to tie that all in with a somewhat wide lens, this image resulted.
But then Olivia asked for the camera and I am glad she did. She rattled off a number of interesting shots, including the one of her green Chucks at the top of this post. I guess it was a foot kind of day.
There are a few more images posted on my Flickr page including some interesting sunflower shots and a giant turtle hiding under a bush. Just look for the set, "Walking In U City 7/31"
