Mostly sharing my photos but may include reading lists or whatever else comes to mind

23rd Week – Images From a Sunday Afternoon Drive Around Palo Pinto County Texas


Life got in the way of my 52 week project. I decided to get back at it but I had a dilemma:  start over at week 1 or pick-up where I left off.  I decided to pick up where I left off.   Yes it’s not a strict 52 week photo project but the more important point is to get out and take photos and share them here.  So here goes.

 

This set of images were all taken at the town of Palo Pinto on hot Sunday afternoon (July 17th, 2014).   I was using my Nikon D700 and Nikkor 28-70 f/2.8.  The sun was harsh plus I wanted depth of field for most of these so I was shoot with high aperture settings
