One photo a day challenge: Day 262. I have used my macro lens so much this year. It has been so much fun. If you love photography and do not have a macro lens, I highly recommend one. There are so many fun and interesting things to do with them. Today I stumbled across this grasshopper just sitting on the fence. The grasshopper stayed there as I was putting away our garden… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 247. I have been out exploring all week. So I have not been home to photograph my flowers growing at home. It is so fun to see that even after all season I still have flowers just blooming now. So now that I turn my focus back to the flowers at home I see a plant that is now finally come to its time of year… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 233. I really enjoy working with water as part of the subject matter. It’s possible to photograph the same thing over and over and the photo is never quite the same because the water always changes. Flowers after a rainstorm are a great example of that. I have photographed the same flowers repeatedly this year. But after every downpour the pattern of water droplets on the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 225. I have always been interested in unusual looking flowers. My goal is to photograph flowers that look different than what is commonly seen. I have seen these flowers in the past. But I have never pulled the trigger on buying one. I just wasn’t sure I enjoyed the look of them enough. I wasn’t sure I could create interesting photographs of them. This time when… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 222. In my previous post I mentioned I picked up some new flowers to use as photogrpahy subjects. So over the next few days I will try to focus on one of those new flowers as the days subject. I was drawn to this plant because of its vine like branching structure and the clusters of small pink flowers at the ends of the branching stems.

One photo a day challenge: Day 215. Todays photographs are from our flowers out on our back deck. The flowers grow wonderfully in our large flower pots on our railing. I love the bold colors. I also really like the composition. One flower up front and in clear focus. Another flower in the next layer. Just a bit out of focus. And then there is another flower in the back layer completely… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 211. Today I went outside to photograph flowers from our selection of flowers we have planted in pots at our house. My plan was to just focus on one specific flower. I have always likes these strawflowers. I don’t think I have photographed them in a little while. So I turned mu attention to them. One pot particularly was growing well and had several blooms. Photographing… Read More

One photo a day: Day 210. I love photographing flowers. It is a joy because the flowers are so beautiful. There is also joy in photographing flowers because of the little surprises you can find. There are so many opportunities to find other small parts of the natural world. Today as I strolled through the Cornell Botanic Gardens I saw a variety of the tiny wonders we share this planet with. There… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 185. Over the years I have planted many varieties of flowers at our house. More often than not I have not been successful in having the perennials return in following years. But there has been one flower that has reliably returned year after year. Maybe I just don’t pay enough attention to where and how to plant the flowers. So then they fail to regrow the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 177. Back at indoor pet portraits today. I tried a little work with everyone today. I wasn’t popular. Almost everyone got up and walked away after a few photos. Our cat Paisley was patient with me today. I thought she was going to crawl up to me and rub her face right on the camera. She settled in and relaxed right up close though. I love… Read More
