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: 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 141. Spent some time just sitting in a field again. Sat. Patiently waiting. Studying the tiny flowers. Looking for just the right angle. I don’t actually remember creating this image. But I love how the flower is framed by the blades of grass.

One photo a day challenge: Day 140. Today I took my macro lens with me and sat in a field. I looked around at a field of grass and selected a spot that looked like it had potential for photographs. This area had some small flowers blooming and some sticks and other random bits of nature lying about. I sat down with my camera and a book. Alternating between reading and taking… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 136. It has been a parade of flowers at our house now that it has finally warmed up and stayed warm. I love flowers. They really brighten up the environment. They are also great photography subject. Not only do flowers make you feel better and help with creativity they also do double duty. Flowers are great photography subjects. And flowers also attract great photography subjects. That… Read More
