Downtown in the middle of winter
Lens: Rikenon XR 28mm f/2.8 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Norcross, GA ISO: 400 
Posted By: ChristianRock, 02-03-2016, 02:30 PM

I noticed that it has been over two months since I just took my camera with me for a walk... I've taken some family pictures in the meantime and that's pretty much it.

So with the Rikenon 28mm on the camera, I walked around downtown Norcross which is a 5 minute drive from work, during my lunch break.

Most of these are wide open at f/2.8.

I try to never miss a flower vase when I can get some bokeh from it...

Or a flower bed, for that matter...

Behind the downtown area there's a little street called College St...

And some of the houses have some interesting decorations on the front porch...

Like ... red hydrants and metal dogs?

There was also a fountain nearby (this is also wide open at f2.8 by the way - see why I sold both my Pentax 28mm lenses?)

The Garden Center, which I've snapped before... (ok this one's at f5.6)

I've noticed quite a few trees blossoming already - but it's the first week of February!

All in all, an enjoyable walk

Very nice series all around! I especially like the the second shot and the one with the fire hydrant.
