A Stroll in the Park

An assortment of flowers from my walk in the park on Saturday.

The first 3 always make me think of relaxing on a beach on an island somewhere.

Curly Q’s and Stars

When I looked at this flower with its curls and stars, one of my first thoughts was that it would be a great hat for a character in a Dr. Seuss  book.

If you look close there is even a slight line under the petals that could be a frown.  ( Sometimes my imagination gets the best of me.)

What are your  thoughts?

WP Photo Challenge: Inspiration (2)

My Inspiration/My Muse

I stated in yesterday’s post that my grandson Arai is an inspiration for me to take photographs.  Well this morning was no exception.

He was left alone in the living room lounging on the sofa watching kids videos on his Sprout Tablet.  Needless to say within a few minutes he managed to surprise us once again.

Check out “OH NO” and see what he did with all of his clothes on!!

Thanks for visiting and make sure you check out other inspirations.

 

WP Photo Challenge: Inspiration

Inspiration

My mood helps to inspire me when I tend to think too much and I need to get out of my head. When this happens I grab my trusty Sony a65 or Note 4 and head out the door to capture something interesting.  Arai (my handsome grandson) is also a great inspiration.

Today and yesterday I was inspired once again to go to the lake by my job and take some pictures.  Nature and all of her glorious wonders is awe-inspiring.

Check out the what inspires others and maybe you will get a little more inspired too!

The Green Machine

****UPDATE was able to find out that this is a Pond Hawk Dragonfly.

Yesterday before the storm hit I took a brief walk at the lake by my job and found this dragonfly.

I do not know what type it is so if someone knows please let me know.

Just a Bench

Here is a before and after look at a bench.  The first one is straight out of camera with no edits applied.  The second one was edited using Snap Seed.

What is your opinion on the black and white version?

Before the Storm

Today was another humid day and we knew that the rain was coming soon.  On my lunch break about 30 minute before the storm began I took some pictures of the sky.

The rain only lasted about 45 minutes and it reduced the humidity just a bit.
