Weekend Pictures

Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Photo Filter

What do you all think of using a digital photo filter?  I like the look of them in certain pictures; they can make a photo look uniform.  Consider this picture I took on Saturday:

IMG_3944I do like the yellow in the original photo, but I like how uniform the picture looks with the cooling filter.  What do you think?  Do you like to use photo filters?

Today’s Picture

You guys.  I really want to take lots and lots of pictures, but I am having a hard time finding good places to go.  I’m sure I can get a few decent shots anywhere, but I want to go someplace that has a lot of inspiration.  I’m just not sure where that is.  In the meantime, here is a picture of the Sweet Pea flower I planted as a seed last March.

Pink FlowerDid you know Sweet Pea is a vine?  I didn’t, so I didn’t plant it near a trellis.  I really like the blooms, so I’m going to plant more seeds next year in a more appropriate place.

Happy weekend.

 

Praying Mantis

Found this little guy on our front porch today.
