Impromptu Imitation

Saturday, I found myself with nothing to do and decided NOT to go to the usual venues, so I headed up to Wekiwa Springs Park to see what all the fuss was about. Though I live in Florida, I don’t particularly like the landscape. To me, it’s quite monotonous, but, while there, I thought I’d try my hand at some Clyde Butcher-esque photography (www.clydebutcher.com). Needless to say, I did not have my tripod with me, hence why this was “impromptu”, but I gave it a try anyway.

I wound up taking more photos of small things rather than the landscape using the not-so-macro macro features of the Canon 24-104mm f/4L lens. In all fairness, if I had the tripod, some the shots would have come out pin-sharp. The image stabilizer, though useful for larger distances between you and the subject, doesn’t fair well when you’re up-close and personal.

Though the park was unserendipitous, there was this one squirrel that hassled me and other waking the trail.
