I spent a lot of time experimenting with apertures today, deciding just how much depth of field I wanted. I usually shoot in aperture priority outdoors, since the light is frequently changing, and usually f5.6 in my setting of choice. Today, though, I was getting up close and personal, using both a 50mm macro and 16-35mm super wide lens for my flower photos. In this, the season of rain, it is vital to get out as much as possible when the sun is shining, both for photos and for sanity.
There were plenty of couples in the park, as well as joggers and cyclists. I did my usual serendipitous meandering just to see what I could see. A steely-eyed grackle hopped around by the Deer Lake rapids, a young couple enjoyed a picnic, friends loitered by the waterside, goose eggs lay abandoned by a large nest, a partly devoured snake lay on one of the walking paths, and a large group of lads played sports on Cricket Field. Another lazy day!
