three of the same

My favorite photos from today all ended up being about the same. Somehow I just didn't like the other angles or other flowers I tried.

tulip season

These tulips have been calling my name all week. I've been waiting for just the perfect time to take pictures of them (ie: not raining, not breezy, and not dark out). Finally I gave up waiting, as everyone here knows that those 3 conditions rarely coincide in the spring time here. My pictures in the poor light weren't worth sharing, but I got a few from the rainy afternoon and also from the breezy afternoon that I do like. Just a few.

Tulips, wide angle

In addition to not using my normal lens, I shot these under mid-day sun for an extra challenge.

365: Made into Pies

I went ahead and did a little analysis of my 365 habits, just for fun.


Here's a breakdown of the different locations I took my pictures:




Lens usage:




And, interestingly, the kid was within 10 feet of me on 50.3% of the days. By the end I think she even started to enjoy herself.

365: All the Photos

My 365 Collection can be found here.


I wasn't going to pick up my camera today...but then I couldn't resist the nice light this morning...I've been wanting to take a picture of this sprig of flowers for a week or so now, but it is always too rainy or too windy; now some of the petals have fallen, but it is still pretty.

365 days of film
