I took an unplanned break from photography last year while we focused on house renovations. Other than during our trip to Glacier National Park, I did not take many pictures last year. Today is probably the nicest weather day we’ve had so far in 2019 so I thought it would be the perfect time to go to a local park and get some pictures.
You can see other pictures I’ve taken at this park here (2016) and here (2013).
Have a great day!
I’ve finally decided on the pictures I want to use for my 2017 calendar.
All pictures were taken by me in 2016 and here’s a description of each:
- January – this picture was taken outside of our house after a snowstorm last winter
- February -this was taken in February when I was out for a walk
- March – this was at a local garden on a warmer winter day last winter
- April – This is a neighbors tree. I sat down under the tree and pointed my camera upward toward the sky
- May – This was taken at the local garden one weekend morning
- June – Also taken at the local garden (I guess I go there a lot!)
- July & August – Also taken at the local garden (yikes!)
- September – At a local university
- October – My front porch after it was decorated for fall
- November – this is a bush we have in our yard that turns red when the leaves start to fall.
- December – I took this when I was out for a walk on a warmer day last winter.
I used a fixed 50mm f/1.4 lens for all of the pictures except for January. For January, I used a 18-55mm f/5.6 lens. My camera is a Canon Rebel T3i.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
I’ve been looking for something to hang above an antique couch for a few months. I wanted to get something other than a picture. Maybe a large clock or a shelf of some kind, but I couldn’t find anything I liked that was in my price range.
Then, a coworker left this picture behind when he took another job and I saw its potential. Here’s what it looked like:
You can’t really tell from the “after” picture, but I put a layer of teal paint on it and then a layer of white paint. Then I took a piece of sandpaper and distressed it. And I removed the beach picture.
Here it is now:
It was super fast and easy because I already had everything I needed. Hooray for free decor!
