Snapshot Saturday: Friends

When the lockdown and quarantine first started in the United States in March 2020, I had so much free time that I wandered parts of Tucson to take photos. I cannot remember if this was on the University of Arizona campus or if it was just south of campus. I took many photos walking to campus and then many more while I was on campus. The palm trees in Tucson all blend together after a while. Though they weren’t anywhere near each other on the ground, from my perspective looking up, all these trees looked like a group of friends meeting for lunch. They didn’t get the memo about social distancing. This was one of many gorgeous days we had during lockdown.

Snapshot Saturday: Almost Forest

Welcome to another Snapshot Saturday. I have many photos to feature on these Saturdays and these are just the ones I think are the best. There are so many more photos beyond that which are still good. But I don’t think they’re as amazing as the ones I’m featuring first. Also, over the next year, I’m sure I’ll take many more photos and have even more to add to my best shots. It’s a fun relaxing hobby. Don’t forget to visit the Photography Page to see more of my photos.

This photos is a set of palm trees in Tucson, AZ on the campus of The University of Arizona. As you can see, I used the grayscale feature on my Canon Rebel T7i camera. I used the standard 18mm-55mm lens that came with the camera at purchase. It was a nice relaxing day just before quarantine started in 2020. It would be another couple days before all my scheduled work would be canceled until early May. Good times. This is one of my favorite shots because of the repetition of the palm trees. It’s as if they were planted to be viewed from this angle.
