As you can probably tell from my previous photos, I am interested in nature photography even when I don’t know the name of something I’m taking a photo of. This pink and white flower is no exception to that. I have NO idea what the heck this flower is called, but I thought it was pretty and therefore, I was taking its picture. I found this pink and white flower at my aunt’s house the last time I was there. I should have asked what it was called, but of course I forgot. Either way, I love the pattern of the flower and despite how much I searched Google, I couldn’t find what the heck this thing was called. So, if you’re looking a this photo and you know what this flower is called, please leave a comment here letting me know! My curiosity is killing me! Just goes to show, though, that you don’t need to know what everything in nature is called to be interested in nature photography.
Every year there is a festival at the college I graduated from. I swear it grows every year and there’s always something interesting to see and booths to explore. Not to mention the delicious food. This year we came across a petting station, I guess you could say. They had rabbits, ducklings, goats, and a cow! I’m an animal lover, to say the least, so of course I was snapping photos left and right. I cannot remember the last time I was this close to a cow. Either way, I snapped a photo of it while drinking; though, I wish I could have gotten one with the cow looking at me. It was a bit distracted by other people though, so I got what I could.
On our walk (yes...that same walk), this tree was one of the first subjects of my photography that day. It was fascinating subject and I’m sure you can see why. It was a distorted tree and I honestly don’t know how it happened. Maybe when we had a big storm or maybe it’s been there for hundreds of years. It’s hard to say, but this distorted tree makes for a good photo-op, I can’t help but wonder if that tree is still there. I’ll have to go check it out one day soon. Who knows, maybe I’ll have photos from a different walk to share.
While on a walk in Louisville, KY, we came across this sign. I’m lame, so of course I got a kick out of it and laughed hysterically for about five minutes. After the laughter was over, I thought it would be good to remember the memory by taking a photo of this sign. Apparently, if you park your car on the wharf, it will be launched. While we were there, we didn’t see any cars being launched, but I’m sure it would have been a site to see!
While at a party recently, I came across this pink flower. I tell you, it was not easy finding the name of this flower, but I did it. It’s a pink impatien and it is a very pretty flower. There’s really not much more of a story to why I took a photo of this flower. I thought it was pretty, therefore, I took it’s photo. Pretty simple. If you haven’t noticed, I have tendency to take photos of things I find to be pretty.
While on a walk, yes, the same walk we saw the Steel Stacks from, we came across this lovely scenery. While practicing my manual mode skills, I took a couple of photos. This is one of my favorites. Just something about the ambiance of the photo that draws me to it and wants me to go take even more photos of the river.
You all remember when the family and I went to Louisville, KY, right? Well, while there, I had some time to look around at the older buildings. Before this trip, I hadn’t realized how much into architecture I actually am. It can be quite beautiful and interesting, at least in some cases. During one of the days of our trip, I was sitting on a bench and happened to look up at this building. It fascinated me. Then when you add in the lamppost, it screamed “Take a photo of me!” So, I did. There were some other structures in Louisville that had done the same and I hope you get a chance to view those photos as well. Just remember if you’re ever in Louisville, take a look at the architecture.
You’ve probably seen more photos of my cat than you’d ever really want to. But, let’s face it, I don’t have any kids and he’s the next best thing. Plus, he makes for an interesting model considering the facial expressions he makes and overall beauty of this cat (and I’m not just saying that because he’s mine, he really is a gorgeous cat). Either way, I took this photo this morning when he sauntered into the living room and took his usual spot on the floor. My husband said he looks like he’s plotting our demise, which may very well be true. But for the time being, I’ll keep shooting new photos of him.
Iâ€™m still learning so any critique is appreciated and welcomed!
