Through My Lens

I thought I’d share what I do when I’m not working, cooking, gardening or sewing. Yep, it’s official, I’ve picked up another hobby: photography. Here are a few shots from this weekend.

There are so many frogs around my in-laws’ house. I spotted this little guy on the siding above a bush.

Isn’t he so cute?

I love the colors of the dragonflies around here.

The details on the wings are amazing. This inspires me to make a lacy top of some sort.

Aliens are real, my friends! Check out the head in the picture above. this guy has eyes in the back of his head!

Finally, I got some really good photos of Newton.

He did pretty well with staying in one place for a few seconds. It’s a real rarity that he’ll allow anybody to take pictures of him, especially ones with him sitting still and looking into the camera. Normally, he turns away from the camera like he thinks it will steal his soul.

The photo shoot was short-lived though, as he spotted something and was gone immediately after this pictures was taken.

This planter is at my in-laws’ house. I suggested they make their tree stumps  into planters, and they liked the idea. So lovely!

Reminder: I’m running in the Warrior Dash next weekend, and I’m raising money on behalf of St. Jude. If you would like to help, you can make a donation here. Any amount helps to make a difference. If you’re interested, the raffle for a dress sewn by me is still going. Thank you for considering helping the children of St. Jude!

    Papa laughs every time he thinks of you even considering talking about a bug of any sort. Good pictures tho. We had an orange dragonfly last summer, hope we have one again. Beautiful!!!

      Some bugs are OK with me, and more of them are growing on me. Taking photographs of insects and wildlife is really giving me a new perspective and helping me appreciate all of God’s creatures better. Spiders and wasps are still my worst enemies though. An orange dragonfly sounds gorgeous! I hope you have another one, too.

      He is, isn’t he? 🙂 Despite all his hyper energy and quirks, he’s such a fun little dog!

    I am impressed you were able to get so close to the insects for the pictures. At that level of detail, with those vibrant colors, they are beautiful. All these colors really pop. My mother has really gotten into photography this year and she is already winning contests and exhibiting her work. Visual creativity like that never fails to impress and inspire me 🙂

      It’s so much fun and the world around us is amazing! Taking photographs is allowing me to look at the world with a whole new perspective. That is awesome that your mom is enjoying photography so much, and winning awards. So cool!

      Aww. Thanks, friend! I’m just starting to get the hang of using different settings on the camera. It’s always fun learning something new.
