Day 19

Day 19

Yea!  Another fun macro shot.  I’m really loving this macro photography.  Luckily, I have a lens that allows me to play around with it.  :)  I seem to be getting some better shots lately…although it’s still kinda tricky.

I was exploring the yard again today.  This time, I was headed over to search Rachel’s sunflower for bugs.  She was telling me the other day that she was having a general bug problem, and that got me thinking, “Ooohhh…bugs!”.  Unfortunately, there were no bugs today.  So I started looking around, trying to find something fun to photograph.  Suddenly, I spot an unusually bright spot on the wood fence.  Looking closer I saw him:  a funny looking spikey/fuzzy caterpillar.

Day 18

This was the only picture I took today.  Luckily, it came out well.  I went over to a friend’s house to play a zombie-based role-playing game for many, many hours, and it was a lot of fun!!  Playing games like this really sparks up my dice addiction.  I want to go get more dice now…it was so hard not to stop at the game store.  :) Lucky for me, it was late and the store was closed.

I took this picture after we were done for the night, and I realized I probably wouldn’t have another opportunity to take a picture.  Hoping nobody would think I was weird…I snapped a picture that I think captures my evening perfectly.  Anyone who has played games like this knows what went down today.  (…and i didn’t die!!)

Day 17

Day 17

Hot.  Very hot today.  But fun.  I dropped off my car at Tires Plus and decided to walk home.  It’s only 1.5 miles, and I figured I would be able to get some fun pictures on the walk.  And I did.

My favorite part was finding this dandelion.  I found it and took a few pictures of it where it grew.  Then, I decided to pluck it and experiment with background colors.

Green grass (ehh).

Concrete (looks like denim).

Pretty purple flower – Winner!

Day 16

Standing outside, pumping gas, I noticed the awesome texture the rust made on this gas pump.  I really wish I had my macro lens, though.  Ah well.  I quickly snapped a few shots in hopes of catching a good one, and went on my way.  This was the best one of the bunch.

Day 15

This is Larry.  I met him after a rain shower today.  My photo journey started with me sitting on my car, taking pictures of the branch that hangs down over my trunk.  I was playing around with the macro lens, trying to figure it out, when it started to sprinkle.  Oooh…maybe I can get some good droplet shots.  Nope.  Not today.  I headed inside, myself covered in water droplets, without a good photo and hoped to get something later.

After a few hours, I headed back outside to see if I could find something interesting.  I went around looking at the different branches, trying to find an image, and ended up at the bush around the mailbox.  I was getting some fun droplet shots when I noticed him.  He was a little hesitant in his steps due to all the water (I’m assuming of course), but he didn’t run away at the sight of my camera.  Lucky for me!  He seems to be saying “Hello” in this picture, and it just makes me smile.  It’s his eyes…so cute.

Day 14

Day 14

Stopped in an industrial park today and noticed this neat staircase.  Luckily, there weren’t many cars or people around, so I didn’t feel weird about stopping and taking pictures.  I started by taking some close up shots of the rusted areas of metal, and then noticed the neat pattern the stairs made when I looked at them from underneath.  I love when happy accidents occur, such as the sunlight stripes that mirror the stairs.  I really like this shot.

Day 13

I ventured into my neighbor’s backyard today.  You know…to see things in a different light…or something.  I’m sure he doesn’t mind, though.  :)  Unfortunately, there were also a ton of mosquitoes in his yard.  Needless to say, I didn’t stay long.  Just long enough to get this shot through the trees.  I love the composition, and the way the sunlight shines through the leaves, illuminating every vein.
