One photo a day challenge: Day 171. I have been unsuccessfully trying to grow milkweed in my yard for several years. I have scattered sees across my yard with no apparent success. People have even given me plants from their yards to try transplanting to our yard. That did not seem to take. On a few occasions milkweed plants have started to grow in my yard. On those occasions they have either… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 158. I enjoy it when plants that I had no part in cultivating start to bloom. Wildflowers of all sorts are great to see. Flowers sprouting from the ground, flowering trees, and flowering bushes. I usually prefer flowers with a bit of color in them. But today the soft light from the evening overcast sky allowed for a good amount of detail to show through on… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 157. It is amazing how much can change in a day. Nature can pass through its phases of growth before we even know it. Just yesterday most of our peonies didn’t look like they were going to bloom any time soon. But today there are bunches of them blooming. Some of the peonies are huge and fully opened. Other peonies are still smaller and the petals… Read More

One photo a day: Day 156. It was a scorcher outside today. I did not venture outside much to create photography. I did brave the bright midday sun for a few minutes though. Fortunately we have planted quite a few flowers this year and they are mostly right on our front and back porch. This saved me from having to be outside exposed to the sun in the midday heat. While photographing… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 154. I’m not really a big fan of rainy days. I love to be outside. But I have a hard time getting motivated to go outside if its a rainy day. I think I just like simplicity too much. I don’t like the extra work or preparation that is needed to go outside and enjoy yourself on a rainy day. Being prepared for the rain so… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 149. Cosmos are some of my favorite flowers to photograph. I love the texture of the petals. They are so soft and silky looking. Then there is the coarse nature of the center of the flower. Especially as the flower matures. Each segment of the flower’s center sprouts on its own. There is always the contrast between the center that is yellow and the petals that… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 148. I have always shoed away from buying new gadgets or gear for my photography. I only bought gear that I had a plan for how I would actually use it. Even if it was something I wouldn’t use all the time. I want to have a plan for all the tools in my bag. A use case. I want to know under what circumstances I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 147. After a day being out and about creating photography I kept my photography at home today. Yesterday my main goal was to focus ion the animal kingdom as photography subjects. Today I brought the focus back to the flowers on our deck. It was getting late evening. The sun was getting low. I was studying the flowers. Looking to see how the light was hitting… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 144. Today I sat in a field of grass. I looked around. There were several different types of wildflowers growing in the grassy field. I noticed that the wildflowers were growing in a particular way. Each kind of wildflower was growing almost completely separate from the other types of wildflowers. And each type of wildflower was itself growing in clusters. There was a large section of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 143. The last several days have been hot. Today there was a quick rainstorm that broke the heat wave. The rains did not last long, but the rain was intense. The flowers got a good watering. I love photographing flowers. But, seldom do flowers look better than after a rainstorm. I love the few tiny and scattered water droplets on the back side of this flower… Read More
