What's new at the Loft - Episode 40

Photo Walk at the Cypress Creek Quilt Show Part 2

In my last post I told you about the Tampa Bay Scrapbooking Guild'sPhoto Walk at the USF Botanical Gardens, and posted pictures of some of the quilts I found inspiring.  The quilts were of course the point of the Cypress Creek Quilters Guild show, but the photo walk was about learning about the settings on your camera and how to use them.  My camera and I are well acquainted so I used the photo walk as an opportunity to practice more with my 100 mm macro lens and to practice my composition.  Here are some more of the photos from this great outing.

Here is a picture of Joe Roberts, of Roberts Imagery who led the photo walk.

I loved all the scarecrows that were everywhere around the show area.

I'll have even more photos from the quilt show in my next post.
