Recently I have not taken many picture but I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I bought these flowers a while ago and can not remember their name (nothing new for me). I like how the buds hang low and then when it blooms the petals go up with a little swirl to them.
Thanks for visiting!
I do not know the name of this tree so I decided to call it the “Beetle Bush”. As I looked to find a good flower cluster to photograph I noticed that it was full of beetles either flying around or mating (and there was a lot of that going on).
If you look closely you can see two beetles mating.
Thanks for visiting!
All comments welcome.
I started a basic photography class that is offered by the community college recently so I can learn to get out of the auto+ feature on my Sony @65. By the description it seemed like it was going to be extremely basic and boring class but I took the leap of faith and enrolled. I think this will be anything but boring, the instructor is very energetic.
On the first day the instructor assigned 3 homework assignments:
1-Take 3 pictures of anything in the following views birdseye, wormseye and standard.
2-Select a picture from a magazine or the internet and recreate it (that’s going to be fun).
3-Take a picture of myself and it does not have to be a portrait (I hate my pictures so I was glad to hear that it does not have to be a portrait.
Here are the initial results for assignment 1, this may change when I finally turn in the assignment.
Assignment 3 – Self Portrait
After I left New Brooklyn Lake Park I went to my mother’s house and took some pictures of her flowers. There is always a wide variety to choose from.
Although I used a Macro Lens I need to either learn to use properly or upgrade to another type as most of the pictures look the same as if it were taken with a regular kit lens. But I like them anyway.
Traci and I were out and about on Route 206 and decided to stop into Atsion Lake in Wharton State Forest to see what pictures we could capture. It was not too much of a picture-taking view at the lak,e too much of an overcast and everything looked grayish. I was able to snap a few shot. UPDATE 4/28/14 I am glad that we went to the Atsion Lake in Wharton State Forest the other day because it has now caught fire. I hope that all is well and no one got hurt or worse.
