after the holidays

Downtown Roswell Georgia

We are so busy at Mckendricks during the holidays I don’t have much time to take my camera out. Towards the end of the holidays I like to rent a lens from Aperturent.com  because with the holiday break I get an extra week of rental. I am looking to purchase a new lens and can’t decide which one to purchase so renting is a great option for testing new lens before you buy. I rented the Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L”  USM lens for two weeks to see if it would be a good all around lens. To gather more information needed to make my decision I like to watch a video on the lens on Youtube .

So on this cold day I started out driving to Roswell, Georgia and the Chattahoochee Nature Center. Even though we are in the dead of winter it is a challenge to take pics without all of the spring and summer flowers. But before I set out to the nature center I stopped at Inc. Street Foods for a little lunch. I was ready for the warmth of the restaurant and happened to get a seat at the end of the bar.

Roswell is just a cute little walking town with great art galleries, restaurants and antique markets.

I just love the brokeh this lens gives! So soft and dreamy!

Outside seating in the winter, uh!

I just happened to take my camera out, set it on the bar towards the light and fired away. again look at the brokeh this lens gives. I really enjoyed lunch. I started with the fresh steamed mussels and a nice warming cocktail.

After lunch a nice walk through the park. I think I was the only person in the park at the time and took on the challenge of taking pictures in the dead of winter,

literally in the “DEAD” of winter.

Following are the pics as I walk through he park.
