Vintage Circles

Yesterday I went exploring with my camera and ended up at Silver River State Park in Ocala.  What a nice park!  I did take a short hike on one of the trails, but the highlight for me was the pioneer “cracker” village just off of the parking lot.  Since I love old, rusty and weather-beaten, I was in pig heaven.

The good news is I got much-needed practice with my tripod, wireless remote and macro lens.  The bad news is I’m still struggling with patience and not thinking before clicking. On most of the shots I committed the stupid mistake of focusing in auto and then not switching to manual to take the shot.

I also wish I would have paid a little more attention to the objects I was photographing to figure out exactly what they were.  I just zeroed in on the beautiful patina age has given the objects but it would have been nice to know what those objects were used for.
