365 Project – 312: Welcome back President Obama! (November 7, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/50, Aperture: F/2.0, ISO: 200

Oh, I wish I could tell you I took these in person but, these were shot in our family room while watching CNN. Surprisingly, they turned out pretty decent given they’re TV shots. Bumping the ISO down to 200 and 100 and shooting at 1.4 aperture helped reduce those wavy lines from the TV. Well, enough about photography…congratulations President Obama!! Oh, I just love Michele and his girls too. 🙂

Shutter Speed: 1/50, Aperture: F/7.1, ISO: 400 – converted to black and white in Lightroom

In the garden shed…those two hooks, in focus, on the right, look like two heads of a couple getting all cozy. Can you see that?

365 Project – 286: Raindrops on black-eyed susans (October 14, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/800, Aperture: F/2.8, ISO: 125

After an absolutely fun-filled long weekend (no school on Friday), I vowed to stay inside all day, reading a book, covered up in my fleece blanket, cozy and dry on this rainy Sunday. But, outside the corner of my eye I sensed this beautiful, golden, autumn light softly glow in my backyard so I ran outside with my camera to take these pics of my black-eyed susans. The soft golden light faded quickly but, I loved just getting outside with my D5000, getting my PJs drenched, then back inside to our cozy house again.  It was a lovely shutterbug moment on this lazy Sunday. 🙂
