Experimenting with the use of my tripod for the first time at the Botanical Garden in Clemson, I sat in wait of the perfect subjects to walk away from me down the walkway.  It was more difficult than I expected, as there would inevitably be someone coming toward me just as I thought I had my shot.  I managed to get a couple of different photos (without sun spots) that I liked, this one of a lady walking her dog, and this one of a family.   afs
