My cousin’s daughter turned 5 on Wednesday so they came up so we could go to the zoo today. I tried to get some awesome pictures but the animals weren’t feeling too show-offy today or were still a little in the winter sleepy mode. Except for the polar bears. They were playing a show offContinue reading “ABQ Zoo”
I take a lot of my shots in Macro mode because I am still figuring out Manual. But I do take a few that really look like they were in Macro mode. Here is my share for this week.
The challenge this week with is beverage. I didn’t get a picture of my favorite beverage, but rather a picture of the dog bowl being filled up. They sure enjoyed =). I used the vignette feature in Picnik to soften the edges a little and love how the water stream comes out of no where.
I kept seeing these other posts labeled SOOC. I kept wondering what it stood for. Kept trying to figure it out in my head. I learned today it is Straight Out Of the Camera. This week’s theme of Shoot and Edit is yellow. I saw that most people put the details of the photo, IContinue reading “Shoot and Edit| Week 9: Yellow SOOC”
I took my camera with me on my walk with the dogs this afternoon. I was in search of the perfect picture with texture. I took several pictures. Also a picture of the outside of Kohl’s.

I decided to make a trip to the mall and look in the luggage store for a camera bag that would actually hold my camera with lens attached. And while IContinue reading “Shutter Love Tuesday with Trendy Treehouse”
I know this is my second post today, but since I wasn’t following the rules on iHeart Faces before I want to make sure I only post 1 picture for the challenge. I have become a photo challenge maniac. It helps me take pictures and think outside the box. My 365 Days of Photos projectContinue reading “iHeart Faces: Best Face of February”
Yesterday I entered a new photo challenge by Ashley Sisk, Scavenger Hunt Sunday. In the process I found some new photography blogs. One of which is Chic Homeschool Mama. Gina hosts a Monday Rewind party where you can post your favorite pictures of the past week that you didn’t enter in any challenges. Ooh, yea.Continue reading “Monday Rewind with Chic Homeschool Mama”
I recently found Ramblings and Photos with Ashley Sisk. Every week she hosts . I thought it would be a good idea to play along, another reason for me to make sure I take pictures. It was fun trying to figure out what to do for each item. 1. Diptych I was out driving theContinue reading “Scavenger Hunt Sunday”
