These are a bunch of ribbons. I can't tell what they are for, but I had a lot of fun picking them out. I am totally NOT crafty, but am hoping that what I am trying to make comes out okay!
This was taken yesterday, but I couldn't choose yesterday, so I am using it today. I like this because the rest of the cemetery is gray and black and white. This is one of the only touches of color. It probably was once BRIGHT red...
This was taken in the St. Louis Cemetery #2. #1 is where the Voodoo queen Marie Leveau is "buried". All the tombs are above ground, since the water table in New Orleans is too high and if you dig, you hit water right away.
I took a walk in the French Quarter. I really love the old crumbly paint and rust as well as all the fun colors. You can tell this one has been painted a few times.
These are in my parents garden. It was taken at dusk and I liked the way the rocks almost match the transformers (I think thats what those are). I also liked the wavy line of them, like little marching ants.
This is right down the hill from my parents house. The Feather River Canyon. It is a beautiful place. Note the snow, yes, SNOW on the mountains. These mountains used to be covered with evergreen trees, but about 5 years ago there was a horrible fire that almost burned my parents house and DID burn the whole entire mountain. It's so sad to see them so bare, but they are still beautiful to me.
My Dad and I were driving home and I really loved the way the clouds looked. I didn't have time to stop and get out and try not to get the power lines in the photo, but actually they lend a little bit of an angle or the rule of thirds, so...I guess it works.
This is me, in my Easter dress and track jacket (I was chilly!) I liked this because the light is streaming in the skylight behind me and the brown of the mirror, the door and the shelves kind of makes it seem antique or something.
I was in a public bathroom (hehe - I am sure people were wondering what I was doing) and I couldn't resist taking this photo of the light shining on the textured wall. I tried a few different ISO settings. This one (without flash at low light) was pretty high -- 1600, but it was warmer, where the lower settings were more blue.
