Day 12

Day 12

Today was an awesome day for my photography!  Will got me this lens kit for my phone that includes a macro lens.  Yay!  I started playing around with it, and came up with some interesting shots.  I need to figure out how focus it though, because I seem to be having difficulties with it.  Today’s picture seems kinda surreal.  I like it.  What I really like is that it’s hard to tell what the image is.  It allows the imagination to be creative, and the possibilities are endless.

If you’re stumped, and just to curious to let it go…It’s a marble ball wrapped in metal at the end of a wind chime.

Day 11

Day 11

Niki and I revisited the Lion’s Club park again today to explore the trail further, this time with Leeloo.  We found out that the trail goes underneath Rockbridge, and we were both interested to see that.  Wow.  Did it go…and go…and go.  We ended up walking a lot further than expected, but it was a lot of fun.  I ended up taking many, many pictures (over 100 actually), and had a lot of fun.

There was a lot of interesting sights to see.  A small creek flowing under the bridge.  Wooden boardwalks that spanned for miles.  Bunny rabbits not afraid of people.  Flowers, trees, and more flowers.  Beauty all around and in all forms.  It was great.

Funny story about my picture of the day, though.  It wasn’t taken at that park.  :)  I actually took this picture in a parking lot.  I was driving around trying to find a restaurant and noticed these flowers.  I stopped my car, got out, and took a few pictures.  Love it!  Pic of the day.  Sometimes it’s like that.  I just know when I see it that that’ll be the subject for my photo.

Day 10

Day 10

Today was really fun.  Niki and I decided to check the walking trails at a park near the house, and see if they are dog friendly.  I was able to get some really good/interesting shots.  There was also a pretty large baseball field area, and while walking around we stumbled upon this forgotten ball.  I love how dirty it is.  Like it wants to tell a story.

Maybe it was a game ball that got knocked out of the park…

Or some kids were playing and it rolled down the hill, unnoticed…

Either way, I found it that day and took its picture.  It was arranged perfectly under a tree, in a pile of mulch.  Just sitting there…waiting.

Day 9

Day 9

Hmm…what to take a picture of today?  I didn’t go anywhere, so I decided to try and find something interesting to photograph inside the house.  Looking around the living room, I spotted a plastic gumball machine on top of the entertainment center.  Hmm…interesting.

Knowing the lighting inside the house would appear orange-ish, I took the gumball machine outside onto the porch for more of a “natural” feel.  I started by taking some pictures of the whole thing and ended up with a more close-up shot.

Interesting notes about this picture:  I wasn’t too excited about this picture.  It’s ok, but not my best.  Then, my friend on Facebook commented on how much she liked it and thought it would make a good puzzle.  Secondly, a few people mentioned how it looked like a ball-pit.  How fun!

Day 8

Day 8

Today I explored the corner of the backyard, a place I don’t go often.  Two reasons: 1) Mosquitoes from hell 2) I don’t usually play outside much.  :)  Niki has an old shed in the corner of the yard that I’ve always been curious to explore.  This picture is from a ledge on the outside of the shed.  I love the textures that the broken wood makes, and that one leaf looks right at home.

I also ventured next door during this shoot because the neighbors were moving dirt to the backyard, and I was curious they were up to.  Come to find out they were filling in the pool.  Luckily, I was able to get a few interesting pictures of tire tracks in the dirt, along with some other neat pics.

Day 7

Day 7

Bad news: Yesterday I spilled coffee on my phone and killed it.  :(  I lost a lot of pictures, contact info, notes, etc.  :(

Good news: I got a new phone with a better camera (Samsung Galaxy S5).  Today was the first day using it for my photo project, and I’m actually pretty happy with it.  I was wandering around the yard taking pictures and experimenting with the camera when I got this shot.  Other than that…nothing exciting happened today.

Day 6

Day 6

Pretty simple really.  Bad day.
