A few pics from the World Wide Photowalk I went on this afternoon at the Manassas Battlefield. I found it in the events section of the local paper, and I pretty much just showed up for it. (Turns out people all over the world are doing this event, just this one day, and there's a contest involved for best photo -- who knew?)
A pro photographer went along with us (Mollie Tobias), and I learned a lot because I had a lot of questions about why it seems I can't control my photos. Especially the colors. If I want the sky blue, then the trees are black. If I want the trees green, then the sky is white. (Here's why. I was shooting into the sun and the contrast in brightness between the sun and trees was too much for the camera to handle, it had to pick one. Sky, or trees.)
The top 3 pics are from my Olympus Pen, the bottom are Instagram. It was a crisp fall day and we were out shooting all afternoon and evening; I came home hungry. It's a free annual event, and there are opportunities to lead a walk or participate everywhere. Check it out.
New paper, alas, next week, ASAP. Take heart, I've begun reading a book on procrastination.
