Golden Columbine…

These are just blooming, and they are actually quite challenging to photograph…its easy to get a straightforward shot, but including the details that make this flower stand out from the rest is difficult… How do you think it turned out? 🙂

Dreaming Again…

I love playing with the late afternoon light. It has so much to offer. 🙂

Its so refreshing to get away from the more “conventional” aspects of photography. I love playing around with the settings on my camera, shooting directly into the sun (oops!), using uncomfortable and maybe unflattering angles, and just shooting randomness, which may turn out to be the crappiest photo I’ve ever created, but hey, at least its different, and creative. And that’s what the craft is all about, right? Thoughts?

5 March: Russian Matryoshka Dolls

Did you know they’re not actually babushka dolls? I didn’t ’til I looked on Wikipedia, but still, my whole life appears to be lie now… ;P

Here they are, basking in the midmorning sun, happy to be out of the house for once. 🙂

Their vacuous eyes are a leeeetle creepy, and the smallest one just looks plain mad. 🙂
