To Find the Perfect Photo You Need the Perfect Tools

Hopefully, once I learn how to use this wonderful new camera (Nikon D7000), my photos will be even better.

More Valentine Scavenger Photos

One of the tasks was to find five photos of things you love. Well, I couldn't limit myself to just five things, so I created five collages. This is the first one: a collage of the men in my life.

The task was to take a picture of a heart. It was Valentine's Day, so there were plenty of hearts around.  However, I noticed that the sliced strawberries I was having for lunch, looked like small hearts.

What do you think?

Valentine Sweets

Continuing with Valentine related photos - this is a picture of the wonderful desert we had on Monday. The item in color was a raspberry chocolate mousse inside a chocolate tulip. Delicious!

Love Photos

In honor of Valentine's Day, I will be posting love or Valentine's related photos. I've sponsored a Valentine's Photo Scavenger Hunt with some friends on Facebook.  The goal is to take 10 photos related to love/Valentine's - (Something pink, something with a heart, something red, a couple, flowers, five photos of things you love and as a bonus - a picture of something that you hate or maybe a Valentine Sucks photo.)  Even though we do this just for fun, the main rule is that it has to be a photo you or a friend took - you can't just collect photos off the internet.

This is the one I chose for the couple photo. My youngest son was kind enough to take the photo for me and with a little editing, I turned into a nice Valentine's Day photo.

Do you have any favorite photos you just love?

In addition to enjoying taking photos of snow, I like catching pictures of ice.  This is actually a photo of some icicles hanging off the bottom of my car. I edited a little to give it the look of a sketch instead of a photo.  I kind of like this one.

I snapped this early on Tuesday, Feb 8th. It was a snow day for my school district. (One I really needed.) I should have been sleeping, but my internal clock (and my dogs) do not comprehend snow days.  This is a pattern of snow on my kitchen window.

Morning Bliss

I think this picture says it all. Without this the day just goes down hill quickly!

Flag - I Love Taking Flag Photos

I know I've been very lax about posting photos. Life is crazy. If you wonder why - check out one of my other blogs: In the Pink. Or you can just bear with me as I promise to try to be better about posting.

We've been getting a bit of snow lately.  This picture was taken out in Black Forest just before a book storm that blew in on January 31st.

The third one is the original shot. I think I like the one with the flag in color and everything else in black and white the best. What do you think?
