The Daily Post Photography Challenge: The Beauty Of Black And White

Ever since doing my post on Mariam, I realized how beautiful black and white photos were.  I never thought of trying to take black and white photographs or even editing my photographs to black and white.  Today I wanted to try something new, so I am going to share some black and white photos. I…

Poetry: Drop By Drop

It has been a while since I have written any poetry.  Ever since school started last year I have been at a loss for words, unable to write.  It was a few days ago when I decided to just sit down and try to write something and I am pleased with the result.  I hope…

Photography:  Backyard Visitors, Mariam My Feline Friend (#1)

We have a cat that has been visiting us almost daily.  She has been in our neighborhood for over a year now.  From what we can tell, she is a homeless cat that was abandoned.  She visits us almost daily if we are home and somehow, if she smells that we are cooking chicken –…

Photography: Garden Views On A Beautiful Day (#2)

It has been a while since we went to the gardens (about two weeks) and I am already missing the sweet smell of the flowers and the constant buzz of the bees.  So I decided to go through some of my folders of photographs and try to find some good pictures of flowers.  I am…

Photography: Crazy About Bunnies (#2)

We went to the park again last week to enjoy the weather, rabbits, birds, flowers, and bugs.  Nothing was more relaxing.  I got plenty more photos of rabbits to share with you.  This time, they have grown since I last saw them (two weeks ago).  They have a richer color fur growing in and they…

Photography: I Don’t Want To Bug You (#3)

I know that it has been a while since I have posted an all bugs post, so I decided to do another one.  With summer officially here, I have found that there are fewer bugs to find – especially in the heat of the day.  Now, that may be me being more restless because I…

Photography: Breathtaking Landscapes

I am not normally one to take landscape pictures, but recently, there has been so much beauty around that I couldn’t help myself.  My camera isn’t very good at taking landscapes, but I was surprised to find that some of them did turn out really nice.  Half of these photos are from a boating trip…

The Daily Post Photography Challenge: Change is All A Point of View

A photographer is sometimes a catcher of transitions, finding the view they want to capture from one moment to the next.  Sometimes you find what you want in the forefront and other times you find it hiding further behind the scene.  It is all a matter of your point of view, your choice of perspective,…

Photography: The Better To See You With

While we were at the park this week, there were many interesting bugs flying around.  They were really fast, but I was lucky enough to get a few photos of a fly that was running around on the leaves.  He was really fast, so I had a hard time getting a lot of good ones….

Photography: Crazy About Bunnies! (#1)

  This week we decided to take a break from going to the gardens and go to a park instead.  There were so many bunnies there, it was crazy.  We saw at least twenty in one visit.  Mostly, there were young ones, but occasionally, you would find the bigger, older bunnies that were watching over…

Photography: Butterfly Madness (#1)

Yesterday we went to the butterfly pavilion in hopes to get many beautiful pictures of butterflies.  We got some good photos, or so we thought, but it was so dark in the building that most of them didn’t turn out as I had hoped.  I took about 244 photos and only fifteen of them turned…

Photography: I Don’t Want To Bug You (Post #2)

With spring now here, there are bugs everywhere I look.  So, when I went to the botanic gardens last week, I was excited about which bugs I was going to see.  There were so many to photograph that if I wanted to, I could have stayed in one place during the whole visit and gotten…
