Sometimes it’s best not to plan. All we knew for this outing was that we would go to the old town area of Folsom. We’ve been there many times before so I was very ambivalent about the outing.
First we wanted to capture the Rainbow Bridge, a Folsom landmark. I’ve photographed it before, but not from the walking bridge next to it. As a special treat, I photographed a fisherman spotted through the archway, two kayakers and a paddle boarder.
Below the walking bridge, I was able to get the American River, the walking bridge and Rainbow Bridge, at different angles.
Next came lunch at our favorite café. I think, for us, that a photo shoot wouldn’t be complete without a good lunch!
After filling our tummies, we spotted a farmers’ market. I just love to photograph vegetables.
And there’s the atmosphere of a farmers’ market where prepared food can be purchased and other crafts can draw you into a booth.
Sometimes a simple basket can be made into a beautiful art piece in post processing using a Photoshop filter.
I think we made some great decisions that morning. Do you?
