I had fun this month with the camera. Enjoy these…
The family Keeshond, Teddy. She is the sweetest dog ever. She follows me everywhere and just plops down by my feet and sleeps. With husband, she’s a little different. She’ll wag her tail, jump on him, and want to play with him. Another thing about her, she won’t eat unless we’re eating.
The pink orchid. This is the second time it’s bloomed. I’ve only had it for a few a years.
My daughter stepped in to help me with the 52 Week Photo Challenge I’m keeping up with. This one called for long exposure so I set the D90 with the 50mm lens to the highest F-stop possible, which was 36, and the ISO to the lowest at L1.
Where did September go? 4 days left. Or, as I said to my youngest, OMW. Oh My Wow.
This month’s random is minimal. How strange that since I’ve started using my iPhone to take most my photos, and with the recent new Project Life App to simply life documenting even more, I haven’t used my DSLR much. I think another part of it is that my youngest is not such a baby anymore and won’t stand still very long for photos. And, my eldest takes her own selfies now. Will I completely stop taking photos with the DSLR in a year or so? Scary thought…and I had been wanting to upgrade to a full frame.
Here’s this month’s random.
Teddy earlier in the snow.
Found a schedule book that started from July to June. It works perfect with my girls’ school and activities.
Finished that water color painting.
Have been waiting a long time for an Instax camera. This is really great fun to play with.
The rose bush husband planted last summer was eaten by our puppy, Teddy. She ate everything that was visible. We thought for sure the bush wasn’t going to come back but it did! Teddy seems to be leaving it alone now.
There’s not much in the backyard and I’m not thrilled at taking photos of the same things every year, yet there’s something I find special in doing it. I love capturing the growth and small changes.
The thorn-less Hawthorne. It flowers a canopy of small white flowers in the spring and its berries turn red in the fall.
The fruitless cherry tree. It’s a shame this cherry tree doesn’t fruit. I’d be eating them cherries to my hearts delight right now if it did! I was surprised to find two orange red leaves on the west facing side of the tree. I have noticed the air a little chilly-er and the sun setting about an hour earlier too. This summer seems to be flying by and for some reason I’m not quite ready for fall yet.
Both these trees are still babies so they have a ways to go, which means, I will be taking lots of photos of them in years to come.
Teddy. She won’t stay still for a photo but I try anyway. She’s 8 months now.
