Spring and Summer

Hello Again!  It’s been quite a while since my last post but I’m hoping to be a little more diligent about taking photos and posting them over the summer, even if they aren’t from a specific project.  As a freelancing graphic designer with two other jobs, unfortunately my design work typically is the last thing on the list (unless I have a specific deadline).

Unfortunately, my most recent work is something I don’t think I will be able to display, but as I took photos for that project I also happen to take a few fun photos for myself.  The project had to do with our local college campus and we have a beautiful arboretum which I happen to go to for photos while some of the trees and flowers were in full bloom.  I’m not much of a gardener and know only a handful of flowers by name but I appreciate their beauty and the variety of colors and patterns which is why I enjoy taking photos of them.  Here are some of the recent photos:

Here are a few photos I took about a month ago in front of the church where I work.  Some of the petals had already begun to fall off and a storm was coming in that night so I knew I needed to take the opportunity before it was gone:

(Bees swarming all over the place although I’m not afraid of bees and they weren’t concerned with me anyway.)

I’m hoping to be out and about now taking more photos especially since the weather has been nice (even if it is hot and humid sometimes) and the days are longer.  I’ve also entertained the idea of taking a picture every day or at least a few times a week and posting the best one or two each week for you guys to keep up my photography skills.  We shall see how that goes.  Until next time!
