A Walk Through Kraft Azalea Garden

It’s been a little while since I set some time aside to do some photography, and with a fresh breeze I thought it would be a good idea to drive over to Kraft Azalea Garden on my lunch break to spend a few minutes walking through the trees and snapping a picture or two.

One of the things I like to challenge myself with from time to time is to put on an older, manual focus, prime lens and force myself to go into full manual mode.  I’ve found this will often cause me to slow down and think about what it was I was wanting to do.

While mid-day is typically the worst time of the day for photos, there were plenty of clouds moving through to help soften the light now and then.
