My 30 minutes was from a quick trip to the river one evening last week. We didn't have a lot of time before dark (and dark means bedtime), but we always try to make the most of these little bursts of togetherness. This spot is one of my favourites - lined with blackberry bushes, the overgrown trail winds down through the trees until it suddenly opens along a riverside trail. We stumble and scratch our way down to the shallow river, and get our fill of late-summer evening. I generally take my post on a large rock, camera in hand (and, this particular time, I had my Lensbaby Edge 80 on it), and drink it all in - the shouts, the laughter, the setting sun, my favourite people.
My favourite way to spend thirty minutes.
