A to Z Challenge – Photography

P is for photography

I have always loved to take pictures… even back in my youth with a 110 camera.  I saved money I made on a paper route and babysitting to buy myself a SLR camera.  And when I was at my worst depression, talking pictures while walking in nature was a sort of therapy for me.  Just call me a shutterbug.

For a while I did a weekly Monochrome Monday picture as I really enjoy the dramatic effect of black and white photography.  I take surprisingly few portrait pictures, but the best ones I take are usually the ones not planned.  But I do not consider myself too good with them and take better pictures of animals I think.

By far the subject of choice is flowers.  Even if I get a bouquet of cut flowers I usually focus in on one or two of the blooms.

My next challenge is saving up and getting a DSLR and lots of memory cards to store pictures on.  Say cheese!

On A Warm Spring Day

Naturally nature is natural…

Here are a few pictures I took yesterday when the temps neared 70°F.

Spring buds up close
Finally some buds
spring buds
So many buds
The bridge
A beautiful day for a walk

For those of you interested… my mind took me somewhere else all together when I first saw the word Natural.  Here is Making It Natural by Dr Hook.  I hope you enjoy or at least get a chuckle out of it.

Click

A moment of time
Captured forever
A bird never again to take flight
A flower forever in bloom
A smile never to leave your face
A sunset that never turns dark
Just a frozen piece of history
Developed into a work of art
And it all began with a simple shutter’s click

On The Street Where I Live

This began as the brain child of Fandango at This, That, And The Other.  To make a long story short, he thought it would be nice to see the streets of fellow bloggers.  So I eventually remembered and took my camera out on the way to my Dad’s last night.  Stopped in the driveway and captured a look into my neighborhood.  It is a pretty quiet street for the most part.  Lots of apartments in the area and all sort of people… singles, families, college students, couples, etc.  Anyway… I am a fan of black and white so here is a monochrome look into my world.  (Sorry I was so late with my link Fandango! But I am here at the party now.)
