Cindy - Florida 9:30-10:30 AM

Today I was able to get out early! I took Lucy with me too:) I was multi-tasking on this walk: walking dog, talking on phone and taking pictures.

I have walked on this path twice before, since CF began. Here and Here are those two posts. The temperature may not be changing(tomorrow it's going down into the 70') but the colors are, slightly. You have to really look for the subtle changes.
This next collage is of a tree that captured my imagination. For some reason, it really reminded me of those apple trees in the Wizard of Oz. But this isn't an apple trees. In any case, follow the yellow brick road!:)
Here are more trees. I like the one with the baby swing hanging in it. The lightest picture was an exposure compensation experiment.

I played with the exposure compensation some more. The top is + exposure(allows more light) and the bottom is - exposure, less light. Which do you prefer?

When looking at this very ordinary shrub I notices these strange fruit like things that I had never seen before. Of course, I had to inspect what was inside by spliting it open with my thumb nail. Look at those beautiful brightly colored seeds. Any ideas as to what this is called? When I broke it off of the plant white sticky sap oozed out.

Here is my impressionistic photo attempt for today. I will keep working on this and experimenting with different light sources and times of day.

I'm so tired. Tomorrow is my son's final football game of the season. We have to be out EARLY!! I'm going to bed.

I hope you walked today and will share some pictures.

One comment from me, and I too am off to bed. So tired today! It must be the changing weather.

I definitely like the less exposed shot (less detail washed out). Thought I do think the under exposed shot could be stopped up a bit to allow for more highlights, because I like the appearance of the washed out fence.

No clue what the "sticky sap" seed is. Very peculiar.

As I mentioned, I played with the impressionistic "camera movement" photo today. Perhaps I should post it to show you my attempt. I wasn't happy with it, though. Perhaps it needs some light.

Let's definitely try to walk together this weekend. Call me in AM!
