Nature Calls Out
I have been toying with the idea of making a calendar, but since I didn't make it (see my Hub about Beating Procrastination), I am just going to share them here.
There is something about the majesty of God's Creation that just calls out to be noticed. It's unfortunate that so many of us are being distracted by the needs of our existence so that we pass by the real beauty without even noticing.
We moved to the suburbs of Atlanta a few years ago, and I have not gotten over the beauty that surrounds us yet. I grow flowers just to look at them and take their pictures. I feed the birds outside my kitchen window and marvel at them daily. And, of course, there are the butterflies - aka "winged flowers". They are simply amazing. And when you take a picture of them so you can look closer, it is even more beautiful.
It has actually been a year since I published this calendar set of photos, so here we go into another year.
Enjoy, and Happy 2011 to all.
Thanks for Looking
Photography is one pass-time that can involve some real passion. Taking pictures, then seeing the results on your computer or television just warms the heart, especially if you see some things you didn't even know were in the shot.
Then there are times when something totally takes you by surprise, even if you meant to do it. One such thing happened in the photo of the bluebird on the right. I had a Sigma 85mm lens on my Canon digital SLR. This lens is not supposed to be for taking photos of birds, but, as things turned out, I did get this amazing shot because the bird was close (right outside my kitchen window), and I didn't take the time to switch lenses. If I had, the bird would have been gone.
Surprises happen in my pictures all the time.
