01.15.10 Photo of the Day (Friday Photowalk)

Capture. It's my goal for the year and I intend on capturing the world around me and increasing my photography skills.  So, I decided that one day a week I should do my own mini photowalk. For those of you who don't know what a photowalk is click here. (Is there anything that Wikipedia doesn't know?) I work in Uptown Dallas which is a really hip, urban area and just a stones throw from Uptown is Highland Park, Texas.  Highland Park is where the richest of the rich live and there are beautiful parks and trails all through out. I have tons of places to walk around at lunch so it should be fun! This is my first Friday Photowalk.

Prather Park



The photo of the day.  I only tweaked the color a little, all that stuff that looks like texture is au natural. : )



Hello, there I am!


I love the In Memory benches.


Down in the gorge looking up. (It was a really dreary day in Dallas today).


Red berries.


These red balloons were everywhere.  There must've been a birthday party or something where the kids were popping balloons!


The swings were so sad.


These bridges go across a small stream that runs through the entire park.  There are probably twenty little bridges in all.


And since I really wanted to practice and play with the camera, today I played with back button focus. Thanks to Katrina for teaching me.  The shot above is autofocus and the two below are back button focused.
