Country Walk

I am stuck in rural West Virginia for awhile while waiting for my Mom to recover from back surgery.  The opportunities for street photography are non-existent and taking pics of the people at the hospital isn’t wise and my Mom has threatened death if I post any of the pictures of her that I shot while she wasn’t looking.  So I dragged out my Canon 5DMK2 that I brought with me, threw a 50mm 1.4, a 85mm 1.8, and a 70-200mm 2.8 into my bag and my new tripod and went for a walk with a couple shots in mind and shoot whatever I saw.  Normally I would not lug that much heavy gear around and walking up and down gravel roads isn’t fun but it was good exercise and I was soaked in sweat when I got back into the house.  I posted some of the pictures from the walk yesterday being the chair and the flower.  The rest I thought would be more interesting in telling a story of my walk.

Since I am on a laptop and not my normal editing rig I did all the edits manually without plug-in’s so there is a bit of inconsistency except for the size of the images which I did in the 6×6 crop because I just like how it looks.
