There's more to me than just books and reading, so today I felt like sharing another hobby of mine that I love to do, which is photography. I love to take pictures. When I get a camera in my hand I am a mad woman. Ask my two boys and my nieces and nephews. I've made them get dressed up and do "photo sessions" with me!! I love my digital camera because it allows me to takes hundreds of photos and burn them on cd's so that I can access them at any time. I've been "trying" to save a few dollars here and there to get myself the SLR camera of my dreams. For me taking photos is a form of self expression. I love taking photos of nature, kids, any activity they're participating in, my dog and cats, and every once in a while.....me!!
Here are some of my favorite photos:
I woke up one morning and there was all of this glorious white frost on everything. So I threw on my shoes, coat, grabbed my camera and ran outside. I crawled underneath one of our pine trees and just started taking pictures . I was actually trying to figure out depth-of-field. I still don't know how to do it!! I usually just point and shoot.
I love black and white photos. I think they are my absolute favorite. This is my niece with her brand new baby brother. It melts my heart!!
A few years ago the farmers planted wheat in the field behind my house. As I was sitting outside I realized how blue the sky was and that the contrast between the color of wheat and the sky was beautiful. So I ran into the house grabbed my camera and this is what I captured that day. I really love this one.
