Sepia Tone

There's something curiously old-fashioned about a photograph in sepia tone. I kinda like it.

Fungi, Mushrooms and Toadstools! Oh my!!

Mushrooms ...or perhaps, more accurately, they ought to be called toadstools... fascinate me. They're so soft on the underside and ever-so-slightly moist. Their lifespan is incredibly short and the conditions necessary for them to grow are so specific... they're just really neat! :)

Can't you just picture the fairy life and leprechauns that exist beneath this one? ;)

If April Showers Bring May Flowers...

...do August showers bring Mushrooms? ;)

They sure seem to! And Texas-sized ones too!! :P


"Help! Fire! Murder! Police!!!" ;)

Way to Relax! :)

Mary-Margaret flopped down inside this big snake at the Galleria's Play Place and put her feet up for a moment of rest before hopping up to play again. :D

The sun setting on August 5, 2005... does it bring "Taps" to your mind also? "Day is done; gone the sun, from the lakes, from the hills, from the..." *ahem* Yeah, that "Taps." :P

Working with homemade "filters" :D

Rose and I were experimenting with all sorts of things today and discovered a cheap and handy homemade way to give the impression that a filter was used! :D As long as the picture requires a flash, it works to cover the flash bulb with colored paper to shoot the picture... here are a few examples...

Taken with a Macro setting...

(Can you tell yet what kind of computer I use?? :P)

We put a purple envelope over the top of the camera for this one...

...the room was completely dark for these last two pics.

More to come... :D

Photo Blog

I've already got a blog or two for various purposes but I thought I'd devote a whole new one to photography... I got a gorgeous digital camera for my 19th birthday just a few days ago and thought a blog would be a neat place to post and share any cool pics I might capture!! *excited*

Just for starters, here's a picture of one of my sisters and me, taken yesterday...
