Grasses by Fred's Bait Shop, Bridgeport
October 29, our last day on the photo trip. Although we certainly could have found more things to see and photograph in the next two days, I was tired and quite ready to go home. But not until I got some pictures in Bridgeport and had my fill of photographing the weathered old miners’ houses in Bodie State Park.

I liked the morning light on these little houses in Lee Vining. It's a scene that I'd like to paint for my watercolor class.

And that’s the day from the point of view of the Nikon. Here’s how the Canon saw it.

What a great trip. But I was happy to get home. I miss my hubby when I go on camera outings with the club. I love sharing my photos with him. And with you! Hope you enjoyed them.

I am also dedicated to combatting global climate change.
I’ve really enjoyed seeing all of these pictures. Thanks for sharing them. They’re lovely.
Enjoyed your blog of the trip and the great photos.
Gorgeous gorgeous photos, Lou! Makes me want to replace my little point-and-shoot – and take a photography class.
Connie, I recommend the Nikon Coolpix P90, or whatever version they’re selling if it isn’t still on the market. It’s incredibly versatile, has a point and shoot mode, and goes from very wide angle to a long telephoto. It’s lightweight and not all that expensive compared to the SLRs, around $400 I think.
