Weekend Wanderings

Zooming in on the weekend...


I made a visit to Monterey last weekend


I decided to focus my camera on all the little details...




well, camera phone that is. I usually prefer to take photos with my actual camera, but I forgot it on this trip. 
 
I hope you can zoom in on what's important to you this weekend.

What beautiful photos. I love when you can see all the details of unique items. I went through Monterey in 2014 but didn't get down to the water, I wish I had. It looks so inviting.

Hi Jess
Oh yes all you've shown us and a whole lot more makes me happy!
What's the blue fish on the paving about - I haven't been to Monterey so I apologise for being ignorant!
LOVE the old door handle, I'm always zooming in on details like that too.
Great post!

Your details are SO interesting!

Having a camera phone has totally changed my perspective. I've only owned cheap cameras and never had one along when I "needed" it. Now, I am always poised to capture a "detail" that grabs my attention.

Such beautiful photos!! Thank you for visiting my blog <3 and for the kind words. Yes, Valentines Day is celebrated in Greece, although not as big as the US!
Have a great weekend!!

"Zooming in" is what it's all about for any artist. To capture the WHOLE landscape is fine, but to select a detail and to explore it from different angles is something I am learning in my photography. In poetry as well, it is of utmost importance. In life, too!

Those fish on the sidewalk, I thought I've seen them before! We were just in Monterey last June!

I used to live right down the road from there in Pebble Beach and it's one of my favorite places. Loved all the details :)
