One of our nearby parks has a native prairie habitat. It is beautiful to walk around and you find yourself forgetting that you’re in the city as you watch the flowers and leaves blow in the breeze, squirrels chase one another up and down trees, and all kinds of birds and insects.
I took a long walk on Monday afternoon, alone with my macro lens to take photographs in the park. The above photographs are all shot with manual focus too, my macro lens doesn’t have autofocus when used with my particular camera.
The mood is of a lazy summer, now the heat has burned off some and we’re left with a wonderful cool breeze flowing through the apartment. Sadly in juxtaposition to the violence and unrest happening in my home country of England these past few days.
