lovely-flower

f/5.6, 1/200, ISO 100

Today’s FMS Photo a Day Challenge prompt is Lovely. It took me a while to figure out what I was going to post, but decided on this photo of a flower. I found it while on a walk with TJ and came across this lovely flower. I’m not 100% sure what kind of flower this is, but it caught my eye. There are many lovely things in the world and my life. I hope that you find this photo to be something that makes you smile today.

What’s lovely in your life?

t-turtle

f/5.6, 1/80, ISO 1600

You have probably noticed that I kind of disappeared for a week. After coming back from vacation, it seems like I needed a bit more vacation time from the internet, hence the sudden disappearance. But I’m back and as of special treat (and a way for me to catch up) for the next week, I’ll be posting not one, but two photos a day! So, looking back to June 8th’s FMSphotoaday challenge prompt, it was “T is for…” If you remember, for the AtoZ Challenge, when it came to T I decided to go with “tear” but this time, I went with turtle. We saw this little guy at the Louisville Zoo. I could have also used him for pattern, but he was perfect for T’s prompt.

What would be your pick to represent T?

wire-pattern

f/16, 1/250, ISO100

I have to admit, today’s FMS Photo a Day prompt, pattern, was not an easy one for me. I looked high and low for an amazing pattern and I couldn’t find any that really stood out to me. Any other time I, of course, come across tons without looking. As soon as I started actually looking for a pattern, it was nowhere to be found. But I was in luck! That one moment that I wasn’t looking or thinking about it, I came across this set of wires intertwining and creating a pattern of sorts. I snapped a photo and here we are. I’m still not 100% sure what these wires were supposed to be, fun it formed into this sort of octagon pattern, I guess you could say. I thought it was pretty cool; though, not the most intricate that I’ve seen, it still caught my eye and my camera’s eye as well.

What types of patterns do you find yourself looking for?

    AnonymousThat’s kinda neat! I was so wondering what it was. lol Is this a piece of artwork or is it part of a building structure?ReplyCancel

      AnonymousI think it’s part of a building structure. It was kind of just there, so I’m not really sure, haha.ReplyCancel

    AnonymousI understand about not finding something the minute you start looking for it. This shot is pretty cool though, and reminds me of one of my favorites photography rules: never forget to look above and behind you! You never know what you might be missing by focusing only on what’s at eye-level.ReplyCancel

george-rogers-clark-adventure

f/11, 1/250, ISO100

This entire week has been an adventure for me considering I’m in Kentucky, a place I have never traveled to before. It’s been an exciting week, to say the least and there are so many photos to choose from in regards to today’s FMS Photo a Day prompt: adventure. I decided to go with a photo I took yesterday of General George Rogers Clark pointing toward the Ohio River. I honestly don’t know much about him, but according to a quick search on the internet, he was a leader of Kentucky’s militia during the American Revolutionary War. Apparently his grave site is at Cave Hill Cemetery in KY. I’ll have to see if I can find it before we head home so I can snap a photo of it. I can only imagine the adventures General George Rodgers Clark experienced while he was alive.

What kinds of adventures have you been on?

ky-science-center

f/4.0, 1/60, ISO400

Good morning! I hope you’re all doing well. Today’s prompt for FMS Photo a Day was 11 o’clock. I have to admit, it was difficult for me to do this only because I often have no idea what time it is because I’m busy doing one thing or another. Yesterday was no exception; however, I was a bit more observant of the time, so I was able to get a photo of what I was doing at 11 o’clock yesterday. I visited the Kentucky Science Center for the first time yesterday. My husband and I decided to wander around some museums and this is where we ended up. There was so much to do and see while we visited. We even had the chance to watch a documentary, The Last Reef, while we were there. It wasn’t too overly crowded despite the large groups that were there, thankfully, since there was enough space for everyone to spread out. We had a lot of fun and, if you ask me, it was a great place to be at 11 o’clock.

ordinary-day

f/4.0, 1/200, ISO100

Today’s FMS Photo a Day prompt is ordinary. It took me a while to decide which photo to go with to represent ordinary. There were so many possibilities for me to go with from flowers to door bells, to who knows what else. In the end, though, you probably noticed I didn’t go with any of them. Instead, I went with a photo of my husband. Since moving, he’s found a new “spot” to hang out on to think and just star into space. I guess you could call it a ledge, but I’m sure that’s not the technical term for where he’s sitting. But, that’s besides the point, there are few days that he doesn’t appear there at least once. The one day I caught him and I had my camera, I couldn’t help but press the shutter button a couple of times. It was an ordinary day for him in his usually spot.

    AnonymousI struggle with prompts like ordinary. Almost like there are too many interpretations of the word out there!

    Great “ordinary” pic!ReplyCancel

family-cat

f/5.6, 1/60, ISO400

You’ve seen quite a few photos of this big, orange fur-ball, but what can I say? He’s adorable and he’s part of my family. I thought he would be the perfect subject of today’s FMS Photo-a-Day prompt, family. Originally, I was going to post a photo of my in-laws, but the picture I wanted to post is currently sitting on my camera. It will make an appearance at one point or another, but just not today. So for today, you get to look at this cute face. I’m glad, for once, it didn’t take that much influence to get this photo. He just happened to be in the perfect position and I was in the right place, at the right time, camera at the ready.

taking-photo

f/5.0, 1/60, ISO 250

June 2nd and I still can’t believe it’s June. Either way, today’s Photo-a-Day Challenge prompt it “Doing.” This photo, by far, is not the greatest, but it does show me doing something. I’m taking a photo of my dog who is staring and begging me to let her outside. So, I guess in a way, we’re both doing something in the photo. She’s doing her best to convincing me to let her out, while I’m taking a photo of her. When I first took this photo, I was annoyed that my reflection was in it, but that all seemed to work out, at least for this prompt’s purposes.
