Brick work, 18-55, 1/75th of a second at f 8 ISO 400.
I got out today after church to do a little more practice. I shot some of my favorite local subjects, (so sorry you will have seen some o these before), and addd a few new ones with twist, I shot everything hand held and limited myself to three lenses; 18-55, 80 Macro and the 70-300d all shot with the X-T5.
70mm-300mm at 70mm 1/00th of a second at f 4 ISO 800.
This is my local record store, my only record store, love the name of it and I enjoy browsing there, though it is not usually filled with my kind of music, run by a nice young couple. I’ve donated over a hundred CD’s for them to sell and help them keep the doors open, every town needs at least one record store!!
70-300 at 113mm shot at 1/690th of a second at f 8 Iso 800. I love the silver aluminum skin and how the 40 mega pixels of the X-T5 shows the texture so well.
70-300 at 122.5 mm 1/400th sec. at f 8 and ISO 800

I call this house Jack’s Nightmare! That needs an explanation! My teaching partner and dear brother Jack Graham went to Indiana University which once was a big rivalry with the University of Kentucky where I went. Jack went wild when he saw this, since he is not very fond of UK. I could care less but have fun teasing him about it!
I hope that was a little fun and a little education!

It has been way to long since I got out to just shoot some images. I was hopeful that I would find it all came back to me! You can be the judge, but I had an enjoyable morning hitting some back roads around Corbin. Sherelene had asked me to go to the local nursery to pick up some flowers for her to plant and I took the camera in hopes I might shoot a few close-up images! On the way to the nursery, I saw the barn above and had to stop and shoot it! X-T5 & the 16-80 zoom.
A short distance down the road, I found the Keavy Grocery and liked the painting on the end of the building, I’m a sucker for painted brick walls!
When I arrived at the nursery and picked up the flowers I asked permission to poke around and shoot some images and, as always, they were fine with it, so my first stop was a small fountain where they had some lilly pads growing, I found the patterns really interesting, the one above was one of my favorites! X-T5 and the 80mm Macro lens on a tripod or all of them, of course!
Another pattern just inches away from the last shot!
Before I left the miniature pond, I found a blooming flower and a sea of green, couldn’t pass it up!
A short walk away was a small display of cactus in small pots, I had to attempt them while I was there.
I’m not much of a flower photographer, but this one really caught my eye and then as I was headed to the car I saw the back lit leaf below and so I made that my final shot!
Well I hope you enjoy them, I felt good for my first time with a camera in my hands in a couple of months, hopefully I will make more progress as I get out more!!!
One last shot just for grins! I stopped at gas station to ask directions, I had changed roads so many times, and this fellow had a funny t-shirt, he allowed me to make a shot of it! Enjoy!
