Monthly Photo Theme Project – Nature

You know you all would never recognize me if I did something on time! So in my normal fashion; I’m late. Again.

Here it is 13 days into September already and I haven’t posted my Monthly Photo Theme project images for August yet!

August’s theme was simply: Nature.

Well August in Kansas is usually hot so I knew whatever I shot for nature would be found in the shade. And sure enough it was!

While on a little road trip with #2, #4, #5, and #7 we came across a lovely scene. We stepped out of the cars and took just a few steps into an old cemetery when we all started saying, almost in unison,  “look! it’s a fairy circle!”.  Can’t tell we are related can you.

Well  of course the cameras came out!

You gotta love it when a photo op just jumps in front of you like that!

Monthly Photo Theme Project – Black and White

It’s time to visit my Monthly Photo Theme Project again…

the theme for February is Black and White.

We had a little spring like weather on Valentine’s day so D and I headed off to the lake to take the cameras for a walk. There was a beautiful blue sky, a little ice left on the water, a few campers about, and more birds flying overhead than I could even begin to count.

I worked on capturing the blue sky and the sparkle of the ice but I did remember to  look for subjects that I felt would make a good black and white print.

This sparse scene caught my eye as a potential black and white and I think that it works out nicely this way. After all besides the blue sky everything else here was already very monochrome.
