I haven’t been out with any photography club friends for so, so many months. When emailing with a fellow member, I mentioned I had been shooting a little on hikes and bike rides. He said he’d like to go with me sometime. Today, was supposed to be dry (it was) and in the mid-50’s (it couldn’t possibly have been), so I took him up on it. I’d warned him to wear shoes he didn’t mind getting muddy. I was in my heaviest winter coat with a scarf around my neck and he came in shorts!
He told me he hasn’t walked in awhile, so I chose a couple of the flattest hikes in Broad Run Park. We began on the Riparian Ramble Trail and returned on the Lowland Plains Trail. My goal is to do them all and these two were still on my list. It was another 2-2 1/2 mile trip and we agreed that it was fun to shoot with somebody once again.

Looks like nice walking and fun with a fellow photog!
It didn’t have a lot of variety , but it was nice to have someone along. I’m hoping with the vaccinations and a better situation in our government that my world will return to somewhat normal soon. I didn’t mind the isolation at the beginning, but considering Jim’s level of functioning now, I miss having face-to-face conversations with people. Zoom is better than nothing, but it doesn’t replace personal contact with friends and acquaintances.
Great that you were able to get out and hike with someone else, and it looks like some nice trails. We have a bit of a running joke in my family about pointing out winter shorts-wearing people, of which we seem to have quite a few. I came out of the grocery store yesterday, and a guy was walking in in shorts and flip-flops. The temp was about 18 degrees(F) at the time. I couldn’t resist texting my wife about my sighting.
I am so looking forward to some time with friends to do ANYTHING with. So glad you had a good photog walk with a photog friend.
