My, my, my hikin’ shoes

Due to a catastrophic computer fail, and my increasing lack of effort and enthusiasm… I’ve abandoned the attempt to complete my first 365Project. I gave it the ol’ college try, but sadly, I just couldn’t sustain it.

Now, that I’ve dispense with that bit of distasteful housekeeping, on to my weekly photo hike. I will never give these up, they keep me sane…

Last time I tried to visit Saturday’s venue, I forgot my hiking shoes… I came better prepared this time, and even brought water and a change of clothes.

As I hoped, the pitcher plants at Tarklin Bayou Preserve were in bloom. This state preserve is one of the only locations, in all my hikes, that I’ve seen them. The fields were full of the carnivorous beauties, and I hope they were overflowing with pesky mosquitoes.

I also jogged (read: drove) down the road a short distance and stopped in at Big Lagoon State Park.

Both parks are close to Naval Air Station, Pensacola.

(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4)

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
