Photo 119 - 365 Bee

Spring time brings out the bees.  I sat out on the deck watching these bees and thought I'd try to capture them. Boy do they fly fast!  I was finally able to get a shot of one that wasn't blurry. Mostly a "point and shoot and hope you got something" kind of technique!

Photo 118 - 365 More Blue Flowers

A little while ago, my husband and I were walking the back part of our property which is a mostly wooded area with a drainage ditch running through it. He found this glass bottle that was completely brown on the outside - almost like a mix of dirt and rust. I didn't want to wash it and clean it up, I like the rustic look. The only thing printed on it is "No Return". I knew there was a photo waiting to happen with that bottle but I just couldn't find it. I've take a few photos of the bottle alone, but when I bought these blue Daisies, I knew they would look perfect in the rustic bottle. This is one of several shots I took. I like this one a lot.

Photo 117 - 365 Floral Texture

I was out photographing some blue dyed daisies this weekend (Along with my blue toy car - it was a blue day) and I thought I'd take a random shot. I learned this technique from my daughter.  I wasn't sure the photo would turn out but I really like it! That's one of the things I love about random shots. In this photo, I am shooting towards the sun from behind the flowers.

Thank you for visiting my blog and checking out my photos!

Photo 116 - 365 Mustang Convertible

Another photo of my Mustang. This is one of my favorite settings on my camera. It is the Dynamic setting and it just makes photos pop!

Photo 115 - 365 Mustang

When I was 13 years old I was on a band trip (yes, I was a band geek! LOL) and we were leaving the parking lot when I saw a car that just took my breath away! It was silver and sporty and I just loved it. I said out loud, "Wow, love that car! Wonder what it is?" and a friend of mine answered "65 Mustang". I was hooked from that moment on!

This is a toy car that I've had forever. Had to dust it off when I took it off the shelf today. I love the color and style. This one is a convertible (you'll see that in the next photo). I've been really wanting to take some close up photography and since my photo group has been doing toy photography lately, I have been taking lots of shots of toys. I know this isn't out of my comfort zone. I love close up photography. But sometimes you just gotta do what you love.

Photo 114 - 365 Toy Dog

Well, at this rate it is going to take me 2 more years to get through the 365 photos!!! I have been doing this project for just over a year and I have learned a lot. I have a lot more to learn though and I am looking forward to finding out how far I can take this photography thing.

My photography group met recently to take photos of toys. I didn't get to attend due to a schedule conflict but I did get a chance to play around with toy photography on my own. I took this photo of a little toy that belonged to my daughter when she was little. I think it is so cute and would look nice on a little girl's bedroom wall.

I never really thought of toy photography until I took the photos of the Star Wars toys for my nephew. It is a fun field!
