If I’m being honest here, this was not the photo I planned to take when I initially began. At first, I was going to take a photo of roses I had that withered up, but my cat didn’t think that was a good plan. I took a couple of shots of just the roses and went to review them when he decided he wanted to get into my lightbox. This has happened before, but usually I shoo him away (after several attempts). This time I decided to take a couple of pictures with him in the box with the roses. I’ve always said my cat is a good model and he proves it here in this shot. I was playing around with the focus, some photos with him being in focus and then putting focus on the roses. At one moment he looked toward the roses while I had them in focus and it was perfect. I snapped the shot and this is the photo I got.
My husband is a hot sauce fan to say the least. The spicier, the better for him. At some point in time we acquired these two mini Tabasco sauces (since writing this post, my mother has informed me that she brought them home from a trip she went on). When wandering around the house in search of something to take a new photo of, I came across them. These two mini jars of Tabasco sauce stared at me every time I walked passed them. So, finally, I decided to take a photo of them. I’m not sure if these Tabasco sauces will ever be used, if they’re even safe to use anymore is beyond me since I have no idea how long we’ve had them. But they do make good subjects for a new picture.
Freezing rain is not my favorite type of weather. It leaves everything, including the streets and sidewalks, frozen. It does have some perks though. For example, I was able to capture this shot of a frozen stem of a rosebush. That’s right, those aren’t just regular droplets of rain, that is frozen water clinging to the stem. I almost wish there was a frozen flower, that would have been something to see and an amazing photo in my opinion.
I have to give my husband credit for coming up with this photo concept. When I asked him what I should take a picture of for my daily challenge he said, “What about Cartman?” (referring to the figure we received with the video game South Park and the Stick of Truth).Â To which I responded with an enthusiastic, “Okay!” When we were attempting to figure out where to put him, it was decided that CartmanÂ would be attacking Hogwarts (yes, I have the Hogwarts Castle Lego set). While TJ was getting himÂ into position, I decided he could not just take over Hogwarts without a fight. That’s where Harry Potter came into play. So here we have Harry Potter vs Eric Cartman battling for Hogwarts.
A new place to buy crepes just opened near us, so of course I had to go check it out. Crepes are delicious, by the way, if you’ve never had one. Either way, the new place is called Crepe Soleil and they are SO good! My husband, who isn’t a huge fan of crepes, even loved them. They have both sweet and savories crepes and a pretty big variety to choose from. Not to mention, they’re delicious and the staff are really friendly there. So, if you’re ever looking for a good crepe, I highly suggest checking out Crepe Soleil!
Have you ever been doing an everyday task and suddenly you’re hit with inspiration of what photograph you want to take next? It happens to me and seems to happen to me more the farther along my photography journey I go. Air Fresheners are here to make our homes smell nice. An everyday object that hangs out on your wall, who knew it would inspire me to take its photo? We have a few of these Air Wick air fresheners around the house and as I stared at one, I suddenly wanted to take its photo. I loved the way it reflected in the mirror behind it and couldn’t resist. This was one, of the many, outcomes.
My husband got this awesome keyboard to go along with the computer he built. It has so many customization features, the possibilities seem endless. The software recently had an update, which added to it, but the feature I captured was one of the original options. The update is just what gave me the idea of attempting to capture what this keyboard can do (at least part of it). The feature he used when I took this photo was called “rainbow,” thus the rainbow keyboard you see above. I think the rainbow keyboard is one of my favorite customization; however, I get easily distracted so I have tendency to keep with a simpler customization option when I use the keyboard so I can stay at least some-what focused.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter now with the snow falling and the temperatures dropping. This is one of the photos I took with the snow covering everything around it. You can still see some of the snow falling in this photo, but it blends together considering all the white surrounding it. Falling snow is not easy to capture in photography, but I am slowly learning how to do it properly. I never thought I’d be wondering when it was going to snow next so I could practice taking photos of it.
