Day 106: I was told this was part of a wildflower, that might be part of the pea family. Day 107: A soccer buddy. Day 108: One of my son’s many Bionicles. Day 109: A day down in Corrales, this outside of the used bike shop. I love what you can find there. Day 110: My favorite gate down the street. I like to photograph it during different seasons. Day 111: My little pal. We were chilling out on the front porch. (Taken on my iPhone.) Day 112: My dinner, taco salad. Also taken with my iPhone.
Down the roadish, there is a little town. Corrales, NM. One of the smaller towns in the area, but they all feed right into Albuquerque, so not that noticeable. Corrales is a bit of an artsy town compared to everywhere else around ABQ. I love driving down the main road. Which is really the only way to drive around there. I have posted pictures before from over there, but I have some great ones from today. Some will have to wait until Scavenger Hunt Sunday.
Gonna have to repost this on Sunday, but when I saw this old tractor just holding up shop with this tree, I had to have it. After adjusting the levels, I textured it with Kim Klassen’s Finale. Then I added an action that I can’t remember who it belongs to, sorry lovely artist. ~~Linking this to: Texture Tuesdays and Tones on Tuesday~~
Isn’t this just a colorful, welcoming entrance? ~~Linking this to: Sweet Shot Tuesday ~~
Now onto some advice. Or thoughts if you will. I am pleased with WordPress (free) but I don’t like not being able to play around with the font or being able to create galleries of my photo themes. I also would like to offer my shots for sale. I would like to hear everyone else’s thoughts on these. I have tried out RedBubble, and like how it shows off your shots but have not sold anything on there because it is still too unknown. I have tried out Smug Mug but not sure it is my most favorite. I like showcasing my extra shots (and daily photos) on Flickr but I am on the free account so it only shows 200 shots at a time. I want the beginning shots back in my theme showcasing. Of course I would rather have it all in one place, it would be so much easier. I have heard Squarespace is really good, pricey, but easy to use. I have seen some ProPhoto blogs that I also like. I guess I am at the point that I wouldn’t mind spending a little each month for a site, but not sure I want to pay for Flickr and a website. So what do you think?
Day 99: A prompt for Texture Tuesdays, for Little Things. I had many more pictures taken in Easter Sunday, but I also shared many of them in other prompts. Day 100: The top of the sugar water egg my mom made for me. She used one of the YoYos I had made last year. Day 101: Mr B enjoys his fries and cheese burger at Wendy’s. Day 102: My mom volunteers at Mr B’s school. They had a luncheon for the volunteers on Tuesday. She brought this flower bunch home. I realized again that I need to figure that macro lens out better because it focused in again on the stems in the middle of the flower. Day 103: A rose I picked off of a bunch being thrown away at work, textured with two of Kim Klassen’s textures. Day 104: Standing outside on the balcony. I have shown this tree in other seasons as well. Day 105: My new addiction, Words With Friends. At least it uses your brain =). I also wanted to state that I also post daily pictures on Flickr, where they can be seen full size.
It was hard to top last week, what with Easter and all. In fact, I didn’t have any really amazing shots this week. I did go out today, though, and got a few to talk about.
This purple flower is a desert plant. A weed perhaps. Lovely little purple petals is has though. I had bent to take the picture of the petals when I noticed those weird looking “leaves” in the top shot. I am not sure if they are in the same plant or if that is how close another plant was growing. A little further up the path, I caught this little bee while I was trying to capture another shot.
