Today I took a break from working on camera books so Clenise and I could take a photo expedition out to a local county park. It was a beautifully sunny, crisp autumn day and we picked a park we had never been to before. It turned out to be a good choice, with a great variety of scenes and activities to photograph, including farm animals, trees with leaves at their peak of autumn colors, a preserved historic farm house from the 1860s, and a pond with a fountain. There also was a blacksmith’s work area, a log cabin, and quite a few other attractions. The four photos here are ones I took with the Leica D-Lux 5, which is Leica’s version of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5, the subject of my latest book. I took some of these photos today to put them in the new book about the D-Lux 5, which I hope to have completed by the end of this year, if I can find enough time. So, today gave us a chance for a very pleasant excursion, with some great photo opportunities included.
