Black & White

I love black and white. So does my sister. I figured I needed some more practice....

 I have mostly been practicing on my cat, Miss Merple, that my sister got me for Christmas. I love her! 
(Miss Merple and my sister...)
 My sister...

Lounging in the sunshine.

Well, that's just a few.
 I am still practicing with the shadows and highlights so you will probably be seeing more!


Odds & Ends {3}

As you my have noticed, I am way behind on my posts. I am sorry. 
But I have a good excuse. I have been busy learning lots of new thing. I  have learned that I can not take "Double Exposure" shots on my camera, which I am really bummed about. But I have found a way to overlay images on PicMonkey, which is similar to Double Exposure, just not as cool... I also found out about Highlight Priority, my new best friend...

Lets cut to the chase....

 Bokeh... I didn't add it....

 Icy trees...

Snow Flakes....

I new they are few, but I hope you enjoyed seeing them...
Of course the ice and snow has long since melted, but it was still just so beautiful. Especially when the sun came and all the trees glittered silver in it's rays....

Is it here? Is Winter really here? I believe so! The ground is white, millions and millions of little snowflakes cover it. They stick to my eyelashes and crunch beneath my feet. Balls of snow fly through the air and the snowmen stand resplendent in the yard.

There is not much else to say. The snow is to beautiful for words....

Odds & Ends {2}

So many random things! Rain drops on the tree branches, my sister, and coffee... What more can I say?

My sister...

Snowy roof.

Street light.

Coffee, chocolate muffin, and Beowulf...
This was at the wonderful coffee shop where my sister works!

Haunted trees...

The last leaf of Autumn...

This one's not as good...

I was trying to get the squirrel but it focused in on the tree instead... :)

Well, Photographers and photography lovers, I must go, but I hope you enjoyed these amateur pics! :)

Kaelyn ♥

A couple weeks ago, when the leaves were still green, I was able to do a photo shoot for one of our beautiful friends for her sweet sixteen! The sun was shining perfectly and the tall trees loomed over us as we giggled and she posed.

It was so fun and I know she enjoyed it too! Why don't you check out Kaelyn's fashion blog... You'll love it!

Odds & Ends {1}

So I decided, since I have so many pictures that don't go in any category, that it would be fun to just put all the little "odds and ends" pictures compiled in one post once a week. What day of the week, I'm not sure.
But this could be interesting....

 My dear Mom and Baby O.


Blueberry patch in the fall...

 You didn't know it, but I'm a ghost.
Haha! Love playing with shutter speed!

Better not mess with this mama....

Well, that's just a sample... What did you think?
Check back in next week for more "Odds & Ends" pics!

The beauty of the fog in the morning is mysterious... You never know when the it might lift.

When you look and see the sun's beams flowing in through the fog you wonder where the sun is lurking. You wonder where he might be hiding. But than suddenly you see. He's only dancing behind the clouds that have come to rest across the earth.

And as the morning grows old and noon comes around, the fog begins to lift. The blue sky peeks out and the orange and yellow leaves shimmer in the sun light. The trees stretch, reaching to the sky, dancing in the wind
knowing the fog will be back next morning.
