North Carolina was beauti-ous this past Saturday. You can’t beat enjoying temperatures in the mid 60’s while the rest of your friends and family are home in New Jersey shoveling snow!
I had a chance to visit the town of New Bern where half of my family moved away to over the last couple years. The town is so quaint and charming. The store fronts are so sweet and there are so many cute cafes, coffee shops and restaurants.
New Bern from afar:
It seemed as if everyone was out enjoying the weather, walking their dogs along the pathway that runs next to the water, or out enjoying their boats. I spent a lot of time, in good company, at the waterfront near the edge of town and might I say what a perfect cloud day it was (if you know me – you know I love a good “cloud day”)! It was a great to be outdoors on a beautiful day while trying to get acquainted with my new D90. Feels the same as the D80 but I have to really get used to the new features (and if you know me you’ll also know that I don’t like to read the manual!)
New Bern is very proud of his history. They have markers all over the town educating you on it’s past which was interesting to see.
I’m trying so hard to be better about enjoying the moments I experience with my eyes first and then with my camera in front of my eye. I am trying to slow down and not take so many photos and trying to look at a scene and really see what would make a great photo (in my opinion) rather than take many shots to see what I have come up with later. It’s a hard habit to break but I’m trying!
Oh my goodness…just look at those clouds! What a sky!
