While serving “jury duty,” I did not have my camera on me. Downtown Durham is not exactly the safest of places, and I thought that the taking pictures of people in the waiting room or even around the courthouse might be frowned upon. Needless to say, I was anxious to pick up my camera last night and since I’ve had my Scavenger Hunt photos done for several days now (I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I did a lot of writing on Monday and Tuesday), I decided to photograph to photograph my Valentine’s flowers…macro style. All of the pinks, greens and white just...

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Am I the only one that is completely over winter? It’s really interfering with my creativity mojo. That…and I allowed myself to get even further behind on my blogging.

Last month, I photographed one of my new ornaments (you can see that photograph here). I’m not sure exactly what these ornaments are called, but I bought five of them to use as table decor in my dining room (you can the entire display here). Anyways…I got off work early yesterday and came home to some incredible sun. I looked just like a kid in a candy store as I wandered around our dining room (because that’s where the bulk of the light flooded in) taking pictures…including the shot below. I may actually like this shot of the ornament over the previous photo.  (ISO...
