I made it through my second week of “a photo a day,” and actually used my camera over my cell phone. The one thing I noticed in doing this project, I was taken back to my days in photography school. It reminded me of when I crawled around my yard trying find things to take pictures of. I liked it, and it made me start looking again.
As a photographer, I have to admit I’ve gotten in the mode of shooting for work, editing and then waiting till the next job to shoot. I am taking pictures every day with my cell but there is something different about paying attention to the viewfinder of an actual camera. It makes me look harder. I’ve noticed I’m looking at things differently again when I don’t have my camera. I also noticed that during my shoots I’m looking around in the frame with more intention. I really like that.
Here are this week’s images.
Sweet Tilly. I was sad when I saw this in the download. She ran away this week after a year at our house and didn’t even look back. We are very sad to have lost her and her pictures will be our memory.
Our camera we used in searching for Tilly. A selfie.
Often after a workout, I will lay on the ground and recover. I like seeing my house from there. Here is my view after a workout. Our house is very close to our neighbor’s. This is one of many reasons Steve and I want to buy acreage.
This is my band I use for pull-ups. PS I’m obsessed with flare. I don’t have an outdoor shoot without some.
I have calla lilies. I love light, even if I have to lay in the dirt to find it.
It’s annoying when the plants grow out of the bark you put down to stop them from growing… Or is it? It always reminds me of the human spirit. Many have tried to kill it but sometimes it just keeps flourishing. Amen for that. I was also really trying to push the depth of field on this one, I wanted the tiniest field possible.
One of my back glass windows broke out in the last storm we had. I’m fascinated with it’s shatter pattern.
Keep Shooting and have a fabulous weekend.
Just a girl, on a journey. Thankful for love, thankful for friends and family, and thankful for forgiveness. Full of passion, conviction and hope.
