Often when I’m visiting somewhere new and I’ve brought my camera I end up taking so many photos, often multiple photos of the exact same shot as I play with the settings and fight with Boomer to stand still for a second so that I can get a non-blurry shot. That means I often end up with hundreds of photos from a short trip, like the one we took to Dupont Forest last weekend.
[Side note: no photos were on "auto" yay, I'm slowly learning the manual settings!]
So take that necessity to “overtake” photos and combine it with my hoarding (yes I’m a bit of a hoarder….mostly with digital stuff…files, photos etc….rather than say cats or newspapers) and it means I end up with a ridiculous number of photos. So my new policy is to go through the photos sooner rather than later and select only the ones that I really like and then delete the rest…..ahh deleting is scary!!
So these are my favourite photos from Dupont Forest. Anyone a fan of the Hunger Games? I love, love the books and therefore by proxy I watched the movie (which is actually pretty good, even though I usually hate book-to-movie adaptations). Well Dupont Forest and the surrounding areas in Asheville were where the Arena scenes of the movie were filmed which really appealed to my inner nerd!
In other news – my new laptop cable came in the post today!! I’m back in business baby! Which means that I can catch up on reading your blog again yay!
