I took a ride with John and Ben yesterday evening, just to get out of the house. I took my camera along. While they went into a store I stayed in the car and snapped some pictures. I was surprised when I uploaded them. There were a couple of pictures that didn’t need too much editing and were not my usual type of picture. I wanted to share some of the ones that I liked.
I was fooling around with my zoom on this one, seeing what happened if I went all the way out in a small space. This is actually the spot where the windshield meets the dashboard.
I tried to catch the way the light was reflecting off the two vents. Then, I zoomed in on something I thought was really interesting. The following scene was completely blurry when I looked at it with my “real” vision. But, when I used my camera to zoom in, I saw this:
I am really happy with this picture.
I also took some flower pictures yesterday. It was a gorgeous, sunny day. The columbine and iris are blooming and they are so beautiful. Here are some iris pictures
And some columbine
I had a really successful photo day yesterday! I explained in an earlier post about how good it is for me to be able to bring my blurry world into focus through photography. One aspect of photography that I am working on is light. I am trying to be more aware of light when I am taking each photo. Since I can’t really determine the focus, this makes me feel a little more in control of the final product. I took a look through my flower pictures and I am surprised at how many different flowering plants we have in our little city yard. This is good news, because there is always something flowering, I have more photos and I will put them on my flickr site. Please feel free to leave comments and constructive criticism about the photos on this post and on flickr.
