{Portrait Time}

So, I think one of these days I am seriously going to go into portrait photography as a profession. I absolutely love it! Just something that's so special when you capture that persons sweet smile at the right moment. 

I've always thought bricks and train tracks would make awesome backgrounds, which they certainly did the other day. . In order: Casidy (my sister), Samantha (my sister) then the last two girls are two really sweet foreign exchange students. One is from Italy, the other is from Germany. I happened to meet these two at an Easter dinner on Sunday. It sure was a pleasant surprise. Thank you for the amazing day! Here are just a few pictures from a great day of shooting. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them. 

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

A Visitor

The lonely visitor in our yard this morning. I promise I didn't set this shot up. I was following him/she(?) around for nearly half an hour with my macro filter. This is the only one that is decent in the bunch.

Simple Pleasures

(I kind of wish the fence wasn't in the background, but it's okay.) 
Dark Eyed Junco - lately I have spent a great deal of time near my bedroom window. Just mostly meditating and watching/photographing all of God's beautiful creations. Mainly, the birds near the feeder and surrounding area. I mean, how wonderful is it to hear the rain on the roof.... while the birds are singing their melodic tunes... and the rainbow out in the field? 
The simple pleasures of life. 

Flowers too. Who doesn't like flowers? From the great scents, to photographing, to planting, to whatever. They are an amazing creation.  Even the bees and hummingbirds enjoy them. 
Ah, I just love nature. 

Have a great night!

What are things you find pleasure in?

This Blog is Alive!

Northern Flicker -  this bird has been invading our bird feeders, which is rather odd behaviour for this woodpecker. It's been fun capturing it on camera though! 
The following is just having fun with water droplets. With of course, macro filters! 
Bleeding Heart 

Then, it snowed!

After it snowed for a few hours..... the American Goldfinches arrived at our feeder! 

Strange weather. We must be in Washington State.
