summer-rain

f/5.6, 1/200, ISO 640

This morning I woke up to it raining and of course picked up my camera to take some shots of it. I was originally attempting to get a photo of the rain droplets on the wires, but when I took the photo, I managed to capture the rain actually falling as well. I thought was pretty neat.

wet-leaf

f/5.6, 1/200, ISO 1250

Catching up with posting my photos I have been taking for the 365 photo challenge. I have tendency to take the photos and then forget to post them on the correct day, so I’m catching up and trying to keep up with posting daily. So, this photo is from yesterday. I found this leaf sitting in a puddle outside of my house before I went to work. I thought it was interesting and I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and taking this shot.

dahlinova-temptation

f/5.6, 1/1250, ISO 640

This photo isn’t part of my 365 photo challenge, but I wanted to share some of my other photos from the Hershey Garden we visited last weekend. This is one of the beautiful flowers I came across, the Dahlinova Temptation Pink Bicolor.

wilting-rose

f/5.0, 1/80, ISO 3200

I’ve been waiting for a rose to start wilting and (essentially) die to take a photo of it. Morbid, right? Either way, there is a reason to my madness. There’s a photo challenge on Clickin Moms to show off “end” photos. I certainly don’t have a photo that is as creative of others, but I think it was pretty. It also contributes to my goal of taking a photo for every day of a year–this was taken last night, one for today will be posted later today after I take it.

What are some of your photos that representing “end”?

peaceful-rabbit

f/7.1, 1/320, ISO 3200

This morning I made my way out into my yard and found this rabbit sitting there. I don’t know what’s made these rabbits so trusting of humans, but it helps in regards to allowing me to capture better photos of them. The rabbit was sitting peacefully in the grass and became statuesque as it noticed me approaching. I was surprised at how close I was able to get to it, but, like I said, these rabbits seem to have no fear (or very little) of the people that live around here. I am happy with the way the light was shining in the rabbit’s eye–especially considering it was sitting in a shaded area.

digging-squirrel

f/5.6, 1/3200, ISO 1250

Yesterday morning I decided to make the commitment to taking my camera everywhere I go. I started the 365 Day Photo Challenge, so I thought taking my camera everywhere would be a good idea. I have to admit, I am so glad that I took my camera because I was able to get this shot of a squirrel digging around a yard. I was pretty close to the squirrel, but my Sigma 70-300mm, I was able to get an even closer shot. I know my mother is probably just glad that this little guy (or girl) isn’t digging up her garden.

cat-tv

f/2.4, 1/25, ISO 2600

My cat has been quite the little model for me lately. Well…sort of. To be fair, he wasn’t even looking at me for this photo, but I couldn’t help but notice the way his head was tilted as he was watching TV. At least, I think he was watching TV, that or he was looking at something behind it, I can’t be for sure. But the back of his head was adorable and I couldn’t resist snapping this shot.

Day: 4/365

cat-spotlight

f/2.4, 1/100, ISO 1600

Walking up the stairs yesterday morning, I found my cat sitting at the top of the stairs. Not an unusual phenomenon, but the way the light was shining, it looked like he was in some sort of a spotlight. Because of the background lighting, it made it a bit more dark and mysterious. I’m not really sure what caused the grainy sort of look. My best guess is that there may be a fingerprint on my phone’s camera or it’s just the way that everything comes together. Either way, it’s a pretty interesting photo in my opinion and I am happy that my cat sat still (for once) long enough for me to capture this photo.
