I'm ready for warm weather again. I'm not a huge fan of the intense summer heat, but I'd rather be hot than cold and I do enjoy being able to go outside without having to wear 3 or 4 layers or a bulky coat.
Today was one of the nicest days we've had so far in 2011, and Sheri and I decided to go take a walk around Sycamore Shoals. I also decided to bring my camera.
Between the stress of the last 6 months or so, the cooling weather, other hobbies and a small variety of other factors, it had been probably more than 8 months since I'd gone anywhere specifically for the purpose of taking pictures just for fun. In fact, I didn't do a whole lot during most of last year, which is kind of a shame. I think there's some good stuff in my 2010 gallery, but not quite as much variety as the previous years. It felt good to be out doing that again - I'd almost forgotten how much I enjoy it. I'm not sure I got much of anything good, but I had a great time just being behind the lens.
I hope to do quite a bit more of this during the rest of 2011. This year will get its own Portfolio on my gallery page at some point, too - though probably not until I have some more to put in it.
