Monday I was playing around with some flowers and seeing if I could capture what flowers mean to me. I selected this image of the orchid to use for my daily photo because I believe the look of the orchid in front of the green wall is so elegant. Advertisements
We went to one of our many local parks Sunday afternoon and just sat and enjoyed the weather (70 degrees in February!) and people watched. There was a little boy learning to ride his bike not too far from us and it was a joy to watch him and his mother. I can remember when […]
I have a wonderful walkabout lens — the Tamron 18-270mm variable aperture lens. I sometimes have a hard time getting really clear, sharp shots holding it instead of using a tripod, and I rarely haul around my tripod when I’m just walking around. I spent some time today really focusing on keeping still while shooting […]
Our beautiful cat Cece (whom I’m allergic to) finally sat still for me yesterday with the camera out. Usually she turns and hides her face from me as soon as she sees me pick up the camera! She let me capture quite a few photos of her before she was bored and walked away.

So I did not manage to get out to find any wonderful new concepts to try in my quest to improve my photography today, so I will have to settle for using a photo of Leopold as my photo of the day today. I was playing with the flash and soft box on this series […]

Went to the annual Eaglefest in Emory Texas this year. It was great to see all the birds up close with their handlers! Here are some of the fantastic photos I was able to capture, although next year my goal is to have a faster lens in time for the event. 🙂 http://www.rainscountychamberofcommerce.com/EAGLE-FEST.html
