I have joined a group of inspiring and talented photographers from around the world in a blog circle. Our goal is to post 5 photos on the 5th of every month for a year.
It’s October! My favorite time of the year. Cool nights. Fall foliage. I took the first image while on a “color walk” with my little guy. He even declared all the leaves “gorgeous!”
The next three were unplanned images. The kids were were busy with an art project, and I was sitting on the floor nearby enjoying an afternoon cup of coffee. Then I saw the light and the quiet moment of concentration from both kiddos and grabbed my camera. When processing the images, I liked how the black and white conversion emphasized the contrast of the light. That is the only window in our house that gets direct sunlight, and I tend to shy away from using direct light. In this case, I think it worked.
Lastly, I grabbed my macro lens and took photos of the thistle growing in my garden. I was thinking about selling my macro lens, but decided against it. The first leaf photo was taken with the macro as well. I just love the compression of the background and how much detail can be captured. I think even the blooming thistle looks pretty against the greenery through this lens.
