Bee’s Eye View

When reviewing some photographs of flowers that I took a few months ago, I realized that I never really have gotten a close up of the insides of the flowers and was curious as to how that would turn out.  So, a few weeks ago, when I went to the gardens,  I made a point…

Pardon My Stare…

A few days ago, when we were strolling through the zoo, we came upon a young male peacock. He was strutting proudly, displaying his gorgeous arrangement of feathers for all to see. Suddenly, we were overcome with the sound of a dozen or so female peacocks rushing to him and singing their praises. Overcome with…

Spiders Up Close

I don’t know why I never realized this earlier, but up close, spiders are the CUTEST!  I find that specifically the jumping spider is adorable.  After finding this out, I have gone on a quest in search for spiders willing to stand still for a few moments for their pictures.  I hope to continue this…

The Daily Post Photography Challenge: Liquid

After a crazy busy school year, things are finally slowing down.  For me, school ended a few days ago.  I am glad that it is over for the time being.  I have so many things I want to achieve this summer, one of them being to post on this blog at least post once, if…

The Daily Post Photography Challenge: Sweet Treats

This week’s prompt was sweet.  At first, I had no idea what to post.  When I asked my lovely animal friends what they thought, they asked me to make this post on their behalf.  They all shared with me what they considered sweet.  There’s nothing sweeter than seeing gentle animals enjoy their own treats!  …

Beautiful Birds Of California

While in California, I had the chance to photograph many gorgeous birds that willingly sat still long for me to take photos.  Some even struck poses J!  I was glad to have the chance to capture their elegance and beauty.  Below are some of my favorite photos I took.            …

California Sunsets

Sorry I haven’t had a chance to post.  Things have been crazy with school.  So much has been going on!  I have been busy preparing for the SATs and preparing for college.  Let’s not mention all the homework I have to do.  I can’t believe I’m going to be a senior next year!  I plan…

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…
