Well now, this is something right up my alley, isn’t it? Natural Elements is what I’m working with this week, and I’m happy to do it! With summer fading, I’m going to take every chance to capture anything that is naturally summer. Although, it was mentioned that the theme does not have to consist of something nature-ie itself, rather, it could be something from nature. It will be interesting thinking of something from that perspective, so I may go with that. I’ve kind of overloaded on the same type of nature photography that I do. Can’t say I don’t love it, but I know you all have seen a lot of it lately.
With that being said, I have some more of my typically nature pictures for you 🙂
While trying to get into my first little photo project for school (yay!), I ventured out a little over that past few days to see if I could find something interesting. It’s basically an introductory, learn-how-to-use-your-camera, type project, so we have free rein to snap what we please. I took my camera to work and caught a few shots there (gasp – work? what? yeah! I have started my new job, and it’s been pretty great aside from my nervous jitters). Then of course, while driving around yesterday, with out my camera (when will I learn?) I drove past a place I used to work for a long time ago. Behnke’s Nurseries is a great little plant nursery with tons of things that you can’t find at your run of the mill store. It was a fun little first job for highschool-aged me to have, and I’ve always liked going back there for random things after working there for a couple of seasons.
So as I said, I was driving by, and was completed captivated by these monstrous sunflowers they had right along the road — something even a little unusual for them. So this morning, I woke up and headed out with my camera to capture some photos of the sunflowers, and whatever other little interesting things they had around the shop. Lots of pretty flowers and cute things around, just as I remembered. So while I think of something a little different to do, enjoy a few of my normal nature-style photos!
