It’s great when you can combine three things you love. In this case, it was friendship, food and photography. Four of us met in the old section of Auburn for lunch; and afterward, my friend Jean and I did a little photography.
Friendship: we’ve been meeting for about 10 years now as a group. We’ve changed our purpose several times, but with two of us sort of retired, we decided to just meet without a purpose.
Food: The many small restaurants in town are all wicked good. It’s difficult to be a Weight Watcher and eat out in Auburn. This small town is at the base of the Foothills and the I-80 gateway to Truckee and Lake Tahoe, CA, and Reno, NV. It’s a typical small downtown area with boutiques, etc.
Photography: Jean and I didn’t have much time to walk around and shoot, but I think we did well with the time we had. And, of course, shooting after lunch meant dealing with the sun. One of these days, I’m going to do what a real photographer would do–go out early or late.
Here are some of the images I captured.
