Yesterday I decided to take my camera out and go exploring a bit. I found a footbridge that goes across a lake we have nearby. I knew the lake was there, of course but I didn’t know about the bridge and I was surprised by how many people were there exercising, walking dogs, or spending time with their kids. It was fun walking around and taking pictures.
Today marks the 98th anniversary of the end of WWI. It is also Veterans Day in the U.S. which is a national holiday designated to honoring and thanking those who have served in the U.S. military. A huge “thank you” to all veterans. I hope you had an amazing day and got to enjoy the weather as much as I did.
I went back to the park yesterday to take some pictures. I was hoping to get some practice with my macro lens by taking pictures of flowers and other small things, but there wasn’t really anything small that stood out to me. Instead, I used my favorite lens, a fixed 50mm high aperture lens (f/1.4), to take pictures of some really great light.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful June so far. June is my favorite month and I’m looking forward to a long, warm, and productive summer.
I am part of a group of photographers called “Cities in Color Project”. It’s meant to inspire us to get out and take creative pictures of objects of a certain color each month. This month’s color is purple, so yesterday I went back to the greenhouse to see what I could find.
It’s a fun group to be part of, but sometimes it can be difficult to find a particular color, especially in the middle of winter. The greenhouse, however, can always be counted on to provide interesting and colorful subjects.
I’m not sure yet which color March is going to be, but stay tuned!
I’m a bit late, but happy new year! I hope 2016 has gotten off to a great start for you. Today’s weather was unusually sunny and warm, so my husband and I went out for lunch and a walk in the local park. Here are some pictures I took.
If you’re in the U.S., I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Our Thanksgiving was full of delicious food and great company. I made this caramel cheesecake from Tartelette and it was so good!
My 2016 calendar is ready! Below are the images I’ve chosen.

A look back at my calendars for 2013, 2014, and 2015 is also available.
I also wanted to take some time to include a brief description of each picture. All were taken in 2015.
January – this is a tree in our neighbor’s yard during a snow storm.
February – this is a scene I came across while out for a walk as the snow was melting during a warmer winter day.
March – taken in my garden with my macro lens. I added a photo filter because the original turned out too pastel-looking.
April – taken at my parents’ house with my macro lens.
May – also taken at my parent’s house, but I used my high aperture lens for this one.
June – picture of a luna moth in my yard.
July – flower in my garden.
August – from a flower garden where I work.
September – trees outside of a building near where I work.
October – a foggy morning at my house.
November – a display outside one of the shops downtown.
