Triumph – River Boys

The photographs I was trying to create for my Triumph post didn’t turn out. So, I have decided to make my Triumph post about my young friends at the river. They were at the river the day I went to do some photographing and I asked them if I could photograph them. They were only too happy to do so  and enjoyed posing. LOL.  This post is for them.

Photography 101 – Edges

I'm using an image that I also used in another assignment but made it B&W instead of color. I used the board planks of the bridge for straightening.

The same bridge at a different angle.

One tree, three trunks.

A little friend came to visit Sunday. LOL (I was surprised to see that a lady bug was still alive with the bitter cold weather we are having). I took her off my iPad and placed her on one of my potted plants (just in case there were any aphids and because I didn't want to put her outside to freeze. Now she can die of old age instead of freezing. Haha). Oh, And I did try to straighten the edge of my iPad but I can see that it is still crooked. Oh well.



Because I am not comfortable posting pictures of my children and grandchildren, my next treasure (besides my little dog) is this:

My husband and I purchased an old two story farmhouse on 18 acres in Mancos, Colorado forty years ago. This print was found hidden way in the back of the closet of our bedroom. My son had already been born, and a year later, my daughter was born. This has become a heirloom in my family. (Even though it may not have much monetary value, it does have great sentimental value).




Fleeting Moments

Our lives are made up of big events and tiny moments. Ultimately, life is fleeting, and oftentimes it’s these small moments we love to document.” Cheri Lucas Rowlands

These photos were taken this summer. I was pleased with how they turned out, especially because there were some of the first pictures I took with my camera. (Olympus Stylus SP-820UZ)

I included this photo because it is that “fleeting moment” of the orange hummingbird being in the process of running off the green hummingbirds from the feeder.
