Today is my mom’s birthday, so I met my family at the State Farmers Market to celebrate with a southern (greasy but delicious) breakfast and a bit of browsing. I brought my camera along so I could practice with the new lens Daniel got from a coworker—my first Canon L lens! First I photographed the heaps of fresh fruits and veggies, but I couldn’t get any shots I was happy with. Before long I got into the groove over in the plant section, which is my favorite part of the market. There’s a huge variety of plants, and they’re so reasonably priced that it’s a little crazy. Thankfully my camera distracted me from trying to take them all home.
