My sister and I went out one night. It seemed more like January than mid-April. She had just spent a few hours weaving her long, thick hair into twenty-something teeny tiny braids. I stood her in front of the lamp post and started shooting. Soon we discovered that, since the air was so cold, her breath became visible from the light behind her.
Obviously, it’s been far too long since my last post. I’m going to shove the blame onto my school classes. College. Is. Hard.
Ice is also hard, and can be very slippery. It is also very difficult to splash in. I got brand new yellow rain boots a couple weeks ago, bought with a gift card that I had gotten for Christmas. We didn’t have snow on Christmas, or the whole week or two after. It was just cold and rainy. So I got my rain boots, and bam! The puddles freeze to ice and we start getting a few inches of snow the day after. So I’m trying to be patient. I’ll get to use them someday. Until then, I’ll take photos of them sitting uselessly on the ice.
I love this close-up of the moon because I’m able to see the dark spots covering its surface. It’s easy to see why early “astronomers” believed it was made out of cheese!
This photo is actually from a while ago and I just never loaded it onto the computer. Sometimes it’s so hard to get a good photo of the moon because it gets so dark at night, but on this particular evening the sun hadn’t quite yet set and so the moon shone from a cloudy blue sky.
My mom got a dozen red roses for Valentine’s Day! I took this photo two days after, on her birthday. Sadly, the flowers aren’t quite as pretty now. That’s part of why I love photography so much – it makes beautiful things last so much longer!
After I had taken probably three dozen photos my little squirrel model hopped down off of the picnic table to treat himself to a kibble from my dog’s food dish. He munched on it happily as if it were a nut before dashing out of the yard. Thanks for the visit little buddy!
I was fixing breakfast this morning and looked out the window to see this little guy on the picnic table. After watching him sit for a moment I ran to get my camera, and he posed for me the entire time as I snapped picture after picture! I think he wondered what the black box in front of my face was.
