Spanish moss, Back garden, Roscoe

This is the result of about an hour's test of my new lens, the Olympus 17mm f/1.8. It seems to have what I look for most, clarity or transparency, a term I can type and name but have a hard time describing. There just seems to be nothing between me and the object.

Creche, Lutheran church, N. Roscoe

This is one of the nicest creches that I have seen in recent years. So simple and to the point.

Roadside trees, Roscoe Blvd. N.

Fall colors. Country trees.

 Weese inspired afternoon yesterday.

I should explain. Carl Weese has a blog called Working Pictures, highly recommended, and trees are a current theme. His Weese weeds are a high point too. He has turned an international loose collection of photographers into hydrantologists. He is also a highly regarded large format photographer who has an ongoing project photographing the disappearing drive-in theaters around the country. His blog is one of about 7 that I can count on to inspire my own photography.
