My themes are all over the board and it’s getting worse as I develop new interests. I like delicate lace embroidery, creepy ventriloquist’s dolls, insects, lost shoes and everything in between. How to pick a theme for a photography blog? I chose two random folders on my computer then I selected the photos that most startled me.
I vaguely remember taking this photo below. It required some patience but it was worth it. The plant was covered in these insects but I decided to crop the photo so we could just focus on one. Some brief research suggests the critter is a Milkweed Bug Nymph.
Photo taken at Eisenhower State Park. June 2015
The photo below startled me because I don’t remember it. I don’t always look at my photos – I have way too many and even I get bored with my photos. But it ends up being a pleasant surprise when I do take the time to review them. This photo is from the Dallas Arboretum, October 2014 with my friend Dawn. I didn’t make any adjustments to the photo in Photoshop (no color or lighting enhancements.) All I did was crop and add my name. The colors are ridiculously vibrant and my “model” looks wonderful.
Camera used: Big Bertha (Canon EOS 5D Mark II)
