Photography Camp { Day 3 } :: Lake Audubon Trails | Reston, VA

Happy Wednesday! It’s hard to believe that camp is about halfway over and that we have two more days of photo safaris left in the week. Having a smaller group allows us to be more flexible and free to engage in a variety of activities during each camp session.

We met in South Reston this afternoon. After a delicious lunch at Cafesano (a local favorite), Mary, Grace and I took a walk along the Lake Audubon trails. If you are familiar with Reston, you will know that it’s a planned community which came into being in the 1960s. The goal of Reston’s founder (Robert E. Simon) was to revolutionize post WWII concepts of land use and residential/corporate development in suburban America. Reston may be known for its thriving Town Center, but it is also famous for its many lakes… and Lake Audubon, the site of today’s photo safari… boasts a paved trail and short nature path that leads you to the water’s edge.

Today’s photo activities were very low key: a leisurely stroll along the paved path, a jaunt into the woods which reached the water’s edge and careful observation of the simplicity around us.

During our afternoon frappuccino break at Starbucks, we took a closer look some photos which were taken these past few days and made a change of plans for tomorrow and beyond! Our destination tomorrow remains a surprise to you readers. Check back tomorrow to see where we ended up!
