I have a hard time following rules – so I’m approaching this assignment from a different perspective. I bought my camera in early August so I can’t do the monthly thing, although I have really enjoyed those posts that have followed this format. These are the pictures I took in 2012 that I especially like because they helped me identify how I like to use my camera to capture and share my world.
Some may argue that I should only post five because I only took pictures for five months but I already said I have a hard time following rules. Here are my favorites with captions to explain why they are special and what I learned about myself through them.
This was the lead image of the first post I did where I wrote a story with my images. It was titled Morning and I was amazed that readers liked it.
I love that I could capture the color, texture and shine of these Heuchera leaves.
It was fun finding new flowers and plants to “focus” on when we went to southern Florida in November. I discovered the wonderful world of Hibiscus.
What fun capturing an image of my granddaughter on the dawning of her womanhood.
This granddaughter is so spirited that it is hard to capture her in an image – but this comes very close.
My youngest granddaughter loved having me practice with her. She is sweet and flirty.
My favorite images of Newfoundland are not panoramic scenes but are more like this. I have lots of fun with architecture..
Pictures that allow me to tell a story are my favorites. This is a winding road on Nova Scotia that led to some surprises.
I found this image to be a dramatic part of a beautiful panorama at Meat Cove, Nova Scotia. I prefer to focus on the part.
I love the interest of seeing sunbathers that are an even smaller part of the Meat Cove image.
My Michigan garden became even more fun when I started capturing images of blooms – like my New Dawn Rose.
My camera gave me motivation to visit the beach while we were in Florida. I love photographing water.
I find it rewarding to capture the details of an experience – like walking in the surf.
I have a desire to capture images of wildlife but my desire is greater than my ability. I’m learning and looking forward to finding places to practice when we return to Florida.
We were in Michigan late into the fall so I posted lots of fall color. My most rewarding and fun were branches. pieces of color.
I like taking images that capture the personalities of places I visit – like these colorful houses that define St. Johns Newfoundland..
