The Essence of Spring (And Bokeh!)

May 25th, 2010, I took a journey with one of my most steadfast companions: my camera.

I walked around my front yard, snapping pictures incessantly, in an effort to capture the essence of spring (er...summer).

After so many photos, I hope I've succeeded.



One of the things I did accomplish was...bokeh!

(At least, I think that's bokeh....at the very least, it looks cool. ;)

To be continued....

Cheesecake = ♥

I took these photos the day after I got my new camera. I was amazed to see how perfectly they captured the textures and colors of the cheesecake. It still makes me happy to think about how easy it was to take the pictures. It was pretty much like...a piece of cake! Cheesecake to be exact. ;)

Oh man... now I'm hungry!

*drumroll please...*


A Canon Powershot SX 120 IS!!!

I've been saving for a while, and finally was able to purchase a camera that meets my needs. I absolutely love it so far!! Here's just a sample of what I've been able to do so far - with promise of many more snapshots to come! :)
 

 special thanks to my models - Tuxedo and Chessie! :)

The Cheese Grater

Okay... so I've always liked looking inside the grater while I'm shredding cheese, and one evening I decided to take a picture. I'm quite pleased with the results. (If you click on it, you'll go to my Flickr page, where it looks much better. It ended up grainy in this post for some reason. *shrug*)

Grilled Cheese

I'm just starting to get the feel of textures, like the different "looks" of the bread and cheese in this photo. My sandwich ended up being really fun to photograph, especially since I wasn't hungry enough to eat it. ;)

(Believe it or not, this was the only picture that made the cut. I have a ton of pictures of a grilled cheese sandwich hogging up space on my harddrive. Such is the life of a photographer, I suppose!)

I might be back...

Okay, so I really can't decide whether I want to keep this blog or not. For one, I'd like to get feedback on my photos... but it's a hassle to watermark them, and I don't know if I have anyone reading this. If you ARE reading this, please comment and let me know whether you would care if you keep this blog or not. :P I'd love to hear from you in any case.

I think it would help if I get a new template... *ponders*. :)
