Water Flower

Water Flower

I love the delicate coloring of this flower. It looks like something that could even be found on a coral reef. I have been using my cell phone for macro work, but as I develop my style it is becoming more and more clear, that I really need to invest in the right equipment!

Selfie I

Selfie I

I need to make a selfie to submit to NatGeo for the new contest this month. It is a real stretch for me to have my picture taken, let alone to take my own picture. What I need is feedback, on whether this is working or not. What I like is the fact that I am in this photo three times, that it is in B & W. What I am struggling with is that the camera is visible. What is your take??

Downtown Tulip

Downtown Tulip

This tulip was found in a planter in the Downtown Mall. I really like that the petals have so much green in them, and the crisp kale in the background. All part of a photographic spree I went on about three weeks ago that landed about one hundred photos that I am still sorting through and deciding what works and what needs to go.

Pacific Tree

I am not sure how I feel about this one. I really liked the tree, and waited a long time for a gentleman to move out of the way so I could take a picture. But I just could not seem to be happy with my results. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t force something to work, and that’s ok too!

Spring Tree

I have no idea what kind of tree this is, but crossed the street in a pretty industrial area to get closer. The blooms don’t last long, but are beautiful when you drive by, always thinking, I need to take a picture of that!
