Stone Manor Outing

Since I love shallow depth of field so much, I thought I’d put my own Friday Photo Tip exercise from last week on wide apertures into practice for myself. 

Last Saturday I had a lovely outing at an historic stone manor in Maryland, built in the 1700’s.  We have a friend, Howard, who is renting the “servant’s quarters” at the manor and while he gave us a little tour of the renovations at the property, I was busy clicking away, challenging myself to only use one lens and at very shallow depths of field.    

Howard also owns some horses that are conveniently boarded across the road at Tranquility Farm Equestrian that we were able to have a ride on.   It was such a lovely day.  Walking through thigh high grass, exploring an old historic house, riding a horse in an open field, and sipping tea on the porch, was a perfect get away day from DC paced life.    Thank you Howard and Sarah! 

Here are some of my favorite images from the day.  Enjoy!
