joy-tj

f/5.0, 1/60, ISO400

I decided to try taking a plunge into the #FMSphotoaday June challenge. If you want to join in, stop by Fat Mum Slim’s website to find the list of June Prompts.

Technically, this one is late, but you all know I don’t generally post on Sunday’s. Plus, I was in the middle of traveling yesterday and didn’t get the chance to post this. Either way, enough excuses! Time to talk about why I picked this photo to represent “joy.” Since meeting my husband, there have been good times and bad times, which is probably true for most marriages, but at the end of the day, he brings me a lot of joy. Originally I was going to post a photo of my extensive collection of movies, but even those do not bring me as much happiness as my husband does, when he’s not driving me crazy, that is.

What brings you joy? Share your answer in the comments below!

door-lock

f/5.6, 1/50, ISO3200

This morning I decided to wander around to take some fresh, new photos to show off. I came across this lock. It’s a fancy, fascinating lock in my opinion and I’m honestly surprised I have yet to post a photo of it. I have not seen any locks like this before and I’m happy that this one has come into my life. I just realized that sounds a little weird, but that’s okay. At the end of the day, it’s a beautiful lock and unique to say the least.

roller-skating-sign

f/14, 1/500, ISO100

When my husband and I were on our trip to NJ a couple of weeks ago, we pulled up next to the old roller skating rink that I used to go to as a kid. It’s still fully operational, but it could probably use some repairs. Since I wasn’t driving that day (for once) I got a chance to take a picture of the sign outside of the roller skating rink. Like I said, it needs a few updates, but I would love to go back one day to relive some childhood memories.

paris-vegas

Photo Originally Taken on August 9th, 2005 in Vegas, Nevada.

This past weekend, my best friend of 22 years (yes, I said 22 years) got married. For her honeymoon, she made the trip to Las Vegas, Nevada. She’s been taking pictures since getting to Vegas, which inspired me to look through my old photos when I visited Vegas. One of the photos I came across was one I took of The Paris Hotel and Casino. It’s absolutely beautiful and probably the closest I’ll ever get to visiting Paris. I have to admit that I miss Vegas and will have to visit again sometime soon. Not to mention, I’d get to visit my aunt!

stacked-rocks

f/5.0, 1/250, ISO100

When I was hanging out in my backyard I noticed a couple of rocks. Naturally, I had to stack them up and take a photo of them. There’s really no rhyme or reason for it other than I wanted to be able to take a picture of it. I debated making it a black and white photo, but decided to just keep it the way it was. I have to admit, there’s something about these stacked rocks. It’s eerily relaxing to look at them in my opinion, but maybe I’m just weird.

What do you think of this photo? I’m still learning so any critique is appreciated and welcomed!

dirt-and-grass

f/5.0, 1/60, ISO100

Did ya miss me? I know, I didn’t post yesterday like usual, but it has been quite the busy weekend. My best friend, who I’ve known since I was a kid, got married this weekend and I’ve just been enjoying my extended weekend in general, so I ended up skipping yesterday’s post. But there I am and here is a new photo for your viewing pleasure! It’s dirt…and grass. Yes, I decided one day that I was going to take a close-up shot of the dirt and grass in my yard. Don’t ask me why, the feeling just struck me to do it. It’s actually kind of an interesting photo in my opinion, but my taste is certainly not the same as others, so…

Oh. P.S. The post, Fel’s Beginnings: Felicia vs Camera Strap was my 100th post! I’m so excited and want to take a minute to thank everyone who has visited, commented and shared my photos and photo blog.

Today is May 21st, 2014 and it is my 4 year wedding anniversary. Okay, you got me, it’s not actually May 21st, 2014, but I didn’t publish it until today because there were already plans put into place as to what was going to be posted. ANYWAY! If you’ve been visiting Fel’s Photos, you know that generally this photoblog consists of photos taken by me. But the time has come to change things up a bit because I officially have my first DSLR camera! That’s right, my husband bought me my very own Canon Rebel T3i DSLR camera for an anniversary gift and I cannot tell you how excited I am. As soon as I found out I was going to getting this gift, I knew I had to write about it and, of course, took pictures of it when I got it: View full post »

broken-street-may-2014

f/4.5, 1/500, ISO100

Remember the other day when I referred to the street prompt? Well, this was the photo I was going to share until I got my lovely flowers. I went with the literal representation for “street” instead of going with the type of photography. After my hubby gave me my camera for our anniversary, we took a walk around so I could try it out and get used to actually using it. There was something about the broken street, aka pothole, that caught my attention and I had to take a photo. I liked the way that the water lay in the cracks and just the overall look of it. It’s hard to explain, but it caught my eye and I snapped a picture. So…
