My 13 year old son Brennan recently discovered the joys of skateboarding during his Spring Break. First he tore up the house up looking of his old skateboard; you know, the one he never used and I threw out just before we moved houses last April (Shhhhh!). So he picked up an inexpensive new board a few days ago, then quickly ordered new wheels, that could handle the streets of Michigan a little better (his words, not mine, I know nothing about skateboarding, the closest I come to skateboarding is wearing Vans).

Wednesday morning my family and I took off to the Fatherland (western Pennsylvania) for the Thanksgiving holiday. Most of the next four days would be filled with visiting family, eating, driving, and eating. My Black Friday goal was to sleep off my turkey coma, continue our family visiting, and if I was lucky get a window of opportunity to drive up to the mountains for a hike.
I’ve been dealing with a cold and some flu-like symptoms the past week or so, so my time on the bike has been extremely limited. As this week has progressed, I have started to feel a bit better, but I’m not in any hurry to ride in 35˚ morning temps while still recovering. Instead I’ve forced myself outside to hike around the woods and at least get some fresh air.
These are a few of the shots I got while hiking around Deerfield Park just outside of town on Thursday morning. I used the Fuji X-T1 that day, and nearly all the shots were taken with the 18-55mm lens.
As you’ll see, when I’m in the woods I am most often drawn to small details, rather than full on landscape shots. While this is surely not everybody’s style, to me it captures some of what I notice when I’m hiking.
Thanks for looking.
I started off the first two days of 2016 with back to back fat bike rides. It’s always awesome to start the year off with a ride and ever better to get in two in a row!
