Having picked wild blackberries before, this was my first experience with a 'you pick' berry farm. Luckily, I saw the sign advertising the fresh berries and made it down to pick on the very last day of the season. It was so hot Saturday morning; after only a few minutes the sweat was dripping down the middle of my back.
I literally took 100s of photos over the weekend....mostly random objects, but it felt good. This berry picking trip wasn't meant to be a photo outing, but it turned into one...and I really like some of the photos.
For a while, I felt like I was missing out on certain
pleasures.... experiencing things only at lens length, always having my
camera in between myself and whatever I was doing...so I took a break
from carrying it everywhere. But lately, I've had my camera (and lens
baby) with me at all times...and it feels good to be documenting
again...too many times I just take one photo with my iphone, and it
doesn't seem like I really capture the essence of the experience....like
I can with my Nikon.
Now....I can't wait to make a blackberry cobbler.
