Welcome To My Blog!

This blog is where I post all my practice shots. I especially enjoy macro nature photography. Everything in God's creation is so beautiful and I praise Him for it.

 i discovered how fun it is to shoot in manual and how not fun it is to fill up a 2gb card and know you only have a 1gb card left.

Hello! HELLO!

Hey everybody! Long time no type :)

Our computer was ruined in a lightning storm-- at least the internet part maybe more maybe less. We are at the Apple Specialists right now and I am using another computer there.

So, I'm not sure how long it'll be before I can do any blogging.

I do have some sad news...

Teasel ran away a couple days ago :(

Very strange since she was not one to take off.

I don't expect her back.

Thanks for all of you wanting to participate in a  weekly photo contest here! I am so looking forward to doing it as soon as well, poor Mac is up and runnin'!

.photography contest.

If I were to host a weekly photography contest, would any of you participate??

This is what I am thinking:

It would be on a certain day of the week. Maybe Wednesdays?

There would be a theme for each week. I would start out with picking the theme for the first week and after  everyone enters I will pick the winner. The winner will pick the theme and the winner for the next week.
How does that sound to you??

I have just been having so much fun with macro friday and thought it would be fun to host a weekly contest on my blog!

Please comment,

.macro friday.

I was so excited to find out that I won last weeks macro friday contest! I have been having alot of fun looking at everyone's entries for this week and can't wait to pick a winner!!

I took alot of macro photos this week... I was just really in the mood for it :) haha!

So, with so many I was having a hard time picking one for this week. I decided to post the one below since it is different than the others I entered before.

.macro friday.

I went out to take some macro photos this morning but nothing was really "catching" me.

I wish I went with my thought yesterday to take a photo of a rain drop on a branch with a flower in it... but I didn't.  I'll have to remember to the next time it rains... 

So, I went into all my photos and picked out one of my favorites I took when our poppies were blooming! 

Have a great weekend everybody!

.macro friday.

I am entering this photo into the macro friday photo contest... I love macro photos!

I am just learning about photography but I can already tell that I am tending towards taking mostly macro photos! 

.photos of mine.

Most of these photos have minimal editing. I'm kind of happy about that :)

This one I darkened a little. . .

This one is not edited at all. I did not think it turned out very well but Grace thought it was really nice so I thought "well, maybe it is!"

This one has a little bit more editing than the others but not too much.

I can't decide which I like the best...
I really like the last one and the BW close up of the daisies. 

Which is your favorite? Please comment!
