Experimental

Last week I shared some black and white photos on my ‘journal blog’ / Instagram. I enjoyed experimenting with different angles and patterns.

For this photo, I started by looking to photograph the van’s headlights (inspired by my last week’s photo challenge entry). But the reflection of the tree is what ended up catching my imagination.

I thought it would be fun to experiment a bit more with my PhotoStudio app, using the Photo In Photo effect to highlight what I was originally trying to photograph. 😉

We’ll get a-round to it!

Last spring while on a photo journey through the Niagara Parks, we stopped at the Floral Clock. There were so many photos to be found as we walked around the clock 😉

This week, share your take on rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.

30×30 Nature Challenge – August 2017

For the first day of this challenge, I enjoyed some time photographing wildflowers and my garden’s flowers.

I’m slowly getting to know my ‘new’ phone/camera. Here’s a sample of most of the filters for my Asus Zenfone 3 Laser.

30×30 Nature Challenge

Join us this August for a challenge that will get you back into nature and tuned into your senses.

Studies show that being regularly immersed in nature can prevent short-sightedness, while listening to nature sounds can decrease stress, and the scent of fresh pine has been known to reduce depression and anxiety. It’s time to get back to your senses and make nature a habit!

Ontario Parks challenges you to spend 30 minutes in nature every day for 30 days.

It said “Drink Me”

Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual. ~ Edward Weston

I adore my coneflowers and I can’t resist taking photos of them. However yesterday I was really aware that I take the “same” photo over and over.

While trying different angles it occurred to me…the front facing camera to see what I was aiming at while under the bloom. Taking flower ‘selfies’ are definitely unusual for me!
