February 9th, Day 40: Another day, another day to walk the dog

I didn’t get much photography in today.

I usually take my camera with me as Toby and I stroll around the neighborhood, or when we go to the dog park. And today was no exception, though I wasn’t terribly inspired. It’s not easy holding a steady camera when your dog is straining at the end of his leash to sniff at this or that.

I did notice the sun highlighting these seedpods in a pretty way, so I attempted to get Toby to sit still for two second while I inched into what might be considered the ‘gray area’ of someone’s front yard. The tree wasn’t far into their yard, I promise! But I might have taken a step or maybe two onto their grass.

It didn’t turn out quite as I had hoped. The sun is blown out, and I didn’t have the patience to try a different composition, to try and block the sun, but I do like how all the little seedpods seem to be dancing in the sunlight!

Here it is, my 365 day photo of the day. I’m thinking in the future I will be requiring of myself only one photo, rather than the 365 challenge and the 30 day challenge that I am currently working on. It’s hard to be creative on a daily basis anyway, let alone come up with more than one cool shot everyday!

I chose this one because I like the contrast of the ducks on the reflection of the sun on the lake.

What do you think?

Isaac and I have been doing a lot of exploring in the past few weeks.

Most of the time when we head out, we have a certain destination in mind, some park or other cool sounding place that we’ve (usually Isaac) found online. Today we had no destination! We just headed out to see where the road (the 405) would carry us.

We ended up stopping in Lynnwood, at a little park called Martha Lake park. It’s just a little place with a swimming area, and a couple of docks. Those docks ended up the perfect place for me to get some silhouette photos of Isaac jumping off the railing (not into the lake, mind you, a bit too cold for that)

It looks like he’s getting pulled up into the air, doesn’t it?
