A Response To A Hard Prompt.

It’s a well known (okay not but pfft, we can ignore that) fact that I am a competitive person.

Very.

Really.

So when Megan gave us category two, which was a myriad of different things we need to take a picture of, I wanted to get as much as I could.

And here it is. Everything except celebrate is in here.

Ahem. With that aside, I can conclude this post! 😀

Also, if you could kindly comment your favorite Christmas carol down below I’d appreciate the requests for me to botch up on moi fiddle!

Seeya.

A portrait of a bouquet of roses.
Oh, and speaking of roses, look out for a review on a book concerning them sometime soon.. 😉
Day 7:
30759193-A5C6-4FB0-9660-43AF79CFDE38
 😉 This made my day when I took that picture.
Well, there you have it. I’ll be around for the next one. See ya, and have a great Sunday.
UPDATE: So the pictures haven’t been showing up like I hoped.. is anyone else having that problem?

A Challenge Regarding Photography

Heyo, people! Hope you’re having a lovely day! Just dropping by to let ya know that I’m participating in a photography challenge, hosted by Cassia!

Also, I’m really sorry, Cassia. I know I was supposed to put this up last week, but uh.. a lot of stuff happened and I forgot. 😛

Also, (again) this isn’t my end-of-month post or anything. Still trying to capture everything that happened this month in my mind and save it. And trying desperately to finish Camp NaNo. It’s over tomorrow!!! AHH!

Ahem.

Now you know I am alive. See ya!

(my laptop refuses to put up a picture. So sorry for the inconvenience)

A Very,Very,Very,Very Long Photoshoot Of Flowers, And Other Things. (Did I mention it’s very long?)

Hey everyone! Greetings and salutations! I hope you’re all having a great day, and that you’re really comfortable, ’cause this is going to be a long stretch.

Over the weekend, I took some (i.e. A LOT) of flower pictures, and I thought that maybe you’d want to see them! Be forewarned: this is a lot. As in 100+ pictures.

Oh, and this post is dedicated to the people who even read this. It’s very long!!!

Last Friday we went to a friend’s house for Bible study, and the traffic took a while.

“I dare you to move,
I dare you to move”- (Dare You To Move, Switchfoot) <— everyone stuck in traffic

A very… excited balloon thingy.

Got to take some interesting pictures of the sun’s rays hitting the window. Is it called solar flare?

Coffee! Or in my case, hot chocolate. 🙂

After probably an hour or so of driving in the traffic, we made it there. There was a lot of flowers there, and I just got out my camera and began to wander around the garden. (I can’t help it! It’s an automatic reflex thing.)

A nice mini waterfall.

IMG_2753IMG_2754

There were a lot of neat flowers there.. as well as some mean bugs.

IMG_2755IMG_2756IMG_2757IMG_2758IMG_2759IMG_2760IMG_2761IMG_2762

I think the majority of pictures there were pansies, although there were a few that I didn’t know the name of.

IMG_2763IMG_2764IMG_2765

IMG_2768
Some blurry-ness that I thought was interesting.

In the garden there was an old tree on which grew a big ole’ mushroom. I wonder how it would taste if it was edible?

IMG_2770          A cool mushroom growing off an old tree!

 

IMG_2773IMG_2775IMG_2776IMG_2777IMG_2778

I also had a nice little impromptu photoshoot with a little roly-poly.

IMG_2779
A littlw wittle roly poly bug.

IMG_2780IMG_2781IMG_2782IMG_2783

(NO HARM WAS DONE TO THE ROLY-POLY.)

IMG_2785IMG_2786IMG_2787IMG_2788IMG_2789IMG_2790IMG_2791IMG_2792

 

These leaves are of several tomato plants that were growing there, I think.

IMG_2796IMG_2797

And these are of more pansies.

IMG_2798IMG_2799IMG_2800

Not these, though. These are of trees.

Another mushroom.

IMG_2807IMG_2808IMG_2809IMG_2814

IMG_2815
Why was this blurry???

I did a poor attempt at getting some pictures of silhouettes as well.

IMG_2817

IMG_2819IMG_2820IMG_2821IMG_2822IMG_2825IMG_2826IMG_2827IMG_2828

And there was a swarm of ants on the ground too.

IMG_2829

 

I’m pretty irked at how so many of these ended up being blurry!

IMG_2831IMG_2832IMG_2834

IMG_2836
I don’t know if you can see it, but there’s a spider web between the pots’ sides. And a little spider on the web!

IMG_2837IMG_2838IMG_2839IMG_2840IMG_2841IMG_2842IMG_2843IMG_2844IMG_2845IMG_2847

I got some pictures of tomato plant pictures, if they were tomato plants…

IMG_2848IMG_2849

If you look carefully at the pictures of just dirt, you can see a few worms and other roly-polies here and there.

IMG_2850IMG_2852IMG_2853IMG_2854IMG_2855IMG_2856IMG_2857IMG_2858IMG_2859

IMG_2860IMG_2861IMG_2862IMG_2863

 

I got some pictures inside the house as well.

IMG_2868
Can y’all see the focus I was going for here?

IMG_2870

I took some pictures of the really cool window inside, that was kinda like the sunroof of a car, except on a house. It would awesome if there was a floor and a rope ladder, and it turned into a tiny little attic room. I can dream, can’t I?

IMG_2871
The house we visited had this cool window, I would’ve liked to crawl out of.

IMG_2872

Then, late at night, there were some twinkle lights plugged in. What’s it called when you have blurry pictures? Bokeh?

IMG_2873IMG_2874

IMG_2875
The little wittle waterfall at night.
IMG_2876
Some blurry lights.
IMG_2877
Some clear lights.
IMG_2878
Some blurry lights again.

IMG_2880
Blurry.
IMG_2881
Clear!
IMG_2882
A blue blur.
IMG_2884
And another blue blur.

That was rather lengthy, wasn’t it? There’s some more, but we’re almost done!  Today I got to take some pictures of even more flowers, please forgive me. 0F88AA7B-31AA-49F9-993F-9FD9C6024DA9E524AFE7-CA07-47D2-9E64-412CC02F23A5

Aw, poor tree, afflicted with some orange.. is that some type of tree disease?

Wow! That was really long!

If you’re one of the few who looked at each and every single picture, you, my friend, have determination!

Oh, and one of many reasons why this was so long was for Starling’s Happy And Random Posts Contest. We’re in the final round, so everything counts. (Yes, I am owning Free Topic. XD)

Greetings and salutations, people! Hope you’re having a great day!

It seems to be a pattern, that after I make a really long post, I follow it up with a short one. Well, such is the case today. I’m putting up my submission for Lydia’s photography challenge. Enjoy!
