This time next week I'll be back in Milan, brushing off my Italian language skills and getting together with my colleagues from work.
But for now, I'm trying to make the most of the few days I have left.
Today, Dad and I headed out to the Savannah Wildlife Refuge, technically located in South Carolina, but just over the Talmadge Bridge and state border. The SWR has a four mile gravel road that is designed for visitors to drive down and pull over as desired. For me, the first two miles were more interesting than the final two since there were more flowers and changes of scenery. We didn't see much wildlife, but I think that summer is not the most ideal season and we'd have better luck at other times of the year.
I just purchased a new camera lens, one with a open aperture, and wanted to experiment with what I could do with it.
Here are some of my pictures from our outing:
|protected nature, with a factory just across the river|
|Scavenger hunt-- find one alligator!|
All images shot with a Nikon D3100 and a AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lens.
