This morning found me in the Fort Worth Stockyards, taking part in a photowalk and scavenger hunt MeetUp with the North Texas Photography Explorers Meetup Group. The weather was beautiful, and I ended up being more interested in the walking than the shooting, though I did manage to take 320 pictures…
Here is the Scavenger Hunt List. Did I miss anything?
- Something Risky
- Spanish Influence
- Old West
- A Sign
- The number “5”
All in all, it was a fun time, and I was glad to bump into Judy, with whom I’ve walked and talked on a couple of photowalks now.
Photowalks are always more fun with a buddy, for sure.
Everything was shot with the D7000 in Aperture Priority mode, and everything except the Bee was shot with the Sigma 30mm f/1.4. The Bee got his from the Vivitar 50mm f/1.8 that I’ve been playing with lately. This was the first time I’ve taken a second lens on a photowalk, and it might become the norm: it was nice to be able to whip out a decent macro set up at a moment’s notice, and the kit weighed less than a pound and fit easily into a jean pocket.
