Friday Funsies

What’s Real, What’s Not; What’s Right, What’s Wrong

My dad is one of the best tall-tale story tellers.  Just the other week he had my mom questioning whether a real rose was actually real or just a silk rose; she stuck it in water and hoped for the best (mostly that this wasn’t one of his jokes and less about whether the rose … Continue reading

Sunflowers

I’ve taken a couple days away from here and I’ve realized I’m missing the reason why I initially wanted to start this blog.  I love taking pictures, but the point of this was to push myself to learn new techniques, better understand aspects of photography in general, and to learn about the editing process.  Lately … Continue reading

Now who’s ready for a little game?!?  Let’s see how many bees (honey bees, bumble bees, out of focus bees, I-want-to-sting-you bees, any kind of bee) you … Continue reading

Coincidental Happy Ending

I know yesterday I couldn’t stop cursing ranting about my out of focus pictures, wishing they had just a little bit more of the flowers in focus.  Welp, even after all that ranting and realizing I killed a few pictures due to a poor choice, I continued to shoot in manual focus mode with my … Continue reading
