Blogging at the Speed of Light

Yet another blog post, maybe not two in two days but two in three. I would have posted yesterday except for the fact I took only about 7 pictures, some more lamp ones similar to the ones I posted last time (except not as cool) then one of foam (under fluorescent light it wasn't amazing) and bread (not interesting). Beautiful sunshine outside today, coaxed me outside and I took some pictures down on the beach.
First the sunshine was beautiful, even though it was crisp outside.
It took me awhile to find something to photograph. Ok, not really but I wasn't sure what to photograph until I came across a little section of the beach littered in barnacles.

I miss the sunshine so much when I feel like taking photos. It's a photographer's best friend, sometimes.

I found this cute little snail and had to take a picture of it before it slid away.

Then I had to take a picture of the lovely sunshine shining through the shell.

These barnacles looked so pretty in the sunlight.

I keep on finding pieces of gorgeous red crab shell on the beach (I have a claw picture I didn't post and the little red piece of shell on the rock in the last post were both a similar crab).

The kelp was beautiful in the sunlight.

I tried to get the beautiful sheen that you could see in this shell. You can kind of see it at the top, an aquamarineish, bluey, and pinky sheen right below the dark part of the shell.

The dried kelp had twisted in a very interesting way.

Loved the pretty crab shell.

More barnacles.

This shell was also beautiful in the sunlight.

This one was like the other shell picture from the last post.

Really liked how this picture turned out. The kelp was actually a really bright green but it didn't translate.

How the sunset looked after I was done taking pictures on the beach.

I saw the water droplet and had to take a picture of it.

This post turned out much longer then I thought it was going to be. Well, shows that I took more pictures then I thought, or at least that they translate into a pretty long blog post. Well, lets hope that I'll have more photos for tomorrow.

A Gap of Time

Where oh where has the time gone. I find myself putting off posting for I don't know why. Here it is, practically months later and I've only posted twice. Well, that will be boosted to three posts by today. I've taken a whole load of pictures and there are far too many to post but I'll post some I took today and some of my favorite from the past what is it again..... months I suppose. Ok... well here goes.

Grandparent's old phone (I love old Rotary phones)
Light on a ceiling fan, I loved how the lighting turned out.

Now for photos that I've taken and particularly liked over the past, what ever expanse of time it is.

Two lovely sunsets (I think they were the same evening. Definitely shows how sunsets can change)

There are still some other photos to upload but I'll upload some later. This will hopefully allow me to post some tomorrow. Cross your fingers, I'll try and get back as soon as possible. Thanks for all of your kind comments, they are appreciated whole heatedly.

Rain, Rain, Will you lead to Snow?

After such a lovely day on Sunday the weather has turned to this.

Rain returned yesterday and it has continued to stay around today. Thankfully, sun breaks will peep through the clouds and there is actually a lovely one presently. Rain does leave that wonderful mystifying beauty, rain drops. There is a plant outside the window that collects them almost as if it wanted to show off a gallery in a museum. It was the perfect inspiration and I took these pictures.

I love using my macro setting. It is probably the most used setting on my camera. I loved these pictures because I have been photographing water droplets recently. It feels so awesome to capture a picture that you like.

First post, I feel like I should have something amazing to say. Unfortunately I really don't. Not that I couldn't yammer on about this and that but I know that will just be too much talking that will probably sound like someone yakking your ear off. I've been inspired by a ton of different blogs, from fashion, to cooking, to photography. I've tried to start a blog before but they never worked out. I always petered out after a couple weeks. Lets hope I can see this blog through and post regularly. This is an experiment in pictures. I'm a novice photographer who wants to see how much better my photography can get.

I'll start off with one of my favorite photographs at the moment.
