On the evening of January 31, Gary and I met in the parking lot of First Church of the Nazarene atop Shades Mountain. The wind makes my little Sony shake around a lot, so getting good images is tough. Maybe I should take that big camera strap off in the wind, since it acts like a sail. During a couple of calm moments, I came away with a shot or two.
"Samford After Sundown" is the name given to a set of classes offered to the community in the evening, so working adults and others will have an opportunity to further themselves in various areas, including photography. I took several classes there years ago and thoroughly enjoyed them and learned a lot. It is also an appropriate description of a photo outing Gary and I took during January. Enjoy.

Need to catch the blog up with my Flickr stuff, so over the next few days I'll put up some posts from earlier in January. On January 10, Gary and I went to a little place behind Sloss Furnace and tried to get some shots from a different angle than usual. The wind was whipping around so much it was hard to get any decent long exposures, but a couple came out okay. Got a jet taking off in the first one.
