Day 28 – Baluster

I love the architectural details in the old Portland Parks. This is the baluster that support the upper railing next to the path overlooking the rose gardens. I love the moss, the worn stone, the contrast with the bricks and the gardens.

I have been taking almost all of my pictures using the manual modes on my camera. And about half of them are even without auto-focus. It’s kind of a freeing feeling knowing how to change the settings so that I can get the picture I want rather than rely on the presets.

    Portland is a city that I want to visit. That picture reminds me why.

    Emmy, you really captured the architectural details. This photo would look great in B&W hanging on the wall with a black frame.

  3. You are a gifted photographer… every picture is exquisite! Thanks for sharing them (and I’m in the market for a new camera, so maybe hitting you up for some advice soon!).

    I’ve gotten better at using manual focus, now I need to get away from manual modes!

    Great picture, as usual!
