March 3rd, Day 62: Sunshine!

I woke to sunshine this morning! It was a pleasant change from all the gray gloom we’ve been having. I grabbed my Easter supplies, which I had purchased and had “on deck” for just a morning, and headed outside to take some photos in the grass.

I definitely want to work with these subjects more, on my next sunny opportunity, here’s what we have so far.

November 13th, photo of the day, Peaceful Light

I’m sorry for my recent lapse in postings.

I’ve been lacking inspiration, and finding my usual fare dull and uninteresting. I need to find a way to try new things and learn new skills, but I’m not sure how or where to start. Occasionally though, I have been stirred by something to grab my camera. Such was the case here, as I was eating my dinner during a break from work. The busy road nearby was anything but calming, but the silence found in the setting sun was peaceful.

I was able to catch the sun coming through an insect’s nibbled hole in one of the last leaves of the season.

May 12th, photo of the day: A Sunny Day

It’s been warm and sunny here in the Puget Sound during the last few days, and the streak is supposed to continue through Tuesday! Up until now, we’ve only been honored with one or sometimes two days in a row before the rain and cold move back in.

It’s funny though, because as some of you already know, our apartment is blocked by three giant pine trees on the deck/living room/kitchen side. As I sit here at the kitchen table, I am wearing a sweater and slippers, although it is supposedly in the mid-70′s outside! When I walk into the bedroom I am always surprised to feel the warmth coming in through the window there.

The following photos are from the last time we had warm days, and when Isaac and I visited this shoreline park we both felt as if we were in Southern California! There were so many people, some of them in swimwear enjoying an ice cream cone, and others playing volleyball.

The sun was really bright that day, as you can see, but I love the shadows cast, and even the negative space that is the result of the bright sun, washing out the sky. What do you think?

 

Day Six

Good morning!

Technically, I took this photo last night, as the sun was starting to set. Is that cheating?

It looked so beautiful, hitting the leaves of my kitchen plant, and I thought it needed to be used.

Today, Isaac and I are going to go explore the town of Burien, to the west, and so I plan to take my camera!

Day Six

Things I want to focus on:

Clarity of subject

Negative space

Rule of thirds

Taking whole body shots

I hope Isaac is ready for this! :)
