Friday morning I was able to get out for a couple of hours, combining it with a couple of errands I had to do. I needed to go someplace close and in the general direction of my errands. I love it each week how someplace seems to magically pop into my head and this day was no different. Howard B. Dunton Park...not a place I normally hang out, but a place with wonderful memories. Glen and I use to go here after work when we first started dating and "make out", he proposed here and we also renewed our vows here four years ago.
When I arrived I did a quick walk around without my camera, just using my eyes to "see" what possibilities were there. I noticed a lot of different textures so that became my shooting focus for the day. Also looking for scenes already set, all I had to do was shoot.
I did cheat a little on this one, I turned the leaf just a bit, but it was already on the post.
Next, I drove around to the lower parking lot to a covered pavilion and hauled out my props. There is a bench in front of pavilion facing the water that has wonderful texture on it.
I found this leaf in front of the bench and it went so perfectly with my cup...
My dried hydrangea blossom from last week made a return appearance...
The Paisleys also wanted in on the fun...
They did some major additions to this park a number of years ago, so much of it is different from our dating days. This upper section and bathrooms did not exist back in those days.
Ahh...wonderful memories! And such fun to play with some of my props for a little while.
