La Purisima Mission

I signed up for the CLL’s new class, Location Photo Shoots with a Pro, as a way to get out shooting close to home and gain some insights from another photographer’s perspective. Our first class meeting was Saturday at the La Purisima Mission. We were there on a living history day, so there were knowledgable and engaging re-enactors there as well as lots of activity to observe and photograph. Here are my favorite shots from the morning.

Carrot Harvest

While I was visiting my parents last week, my brother harvested his carrots from the garden. After lots of effort building raised beds and nurturing them all summer, they were a bit disappointing. None of these is more than 2-1/2″ long. I think they’re adorable, but I think he was digusted with them.
