50 With A 50 – Week 24

We had some beautiful yellow tulips in our garden, surrounded by their less beautiful but still yellow dandelion cousins. Unfortunately one evening our daughter was out playing with her friends and they picked some yellow flowers. I assumed they were picking some of the hundreds of dandelions but instead they decided to pick half the tulips. I was a little annoyed but I couldn’t be angry, technically we didn’t tell them not to pick the tulips and I should probably have clarified the situation when I heard they were picking “yellow flowers”. This is one of those poor tulips and it fell apart so was abandoned by the kids. Next morning it was covered in rain drops and with the bright sun shining on it I took a few close up shots and a couple with the 50mm lens for my #50WithA50 project. I liked this one, it almost looks like a weird bee or another yellow insect.

50 With A 50 – Week 23

Another very busy week so another late post, but still here is week 23 in my #50WithA50 project. Almost half way 🙂 This week has been busy because we started a 3 day project to redo our kitchen and we are currently onto day 7 of that 3 day project and 2 more to go. The problem is I’m trying to take my time and do things properly like sanding everything down instead of just deglossing with chemicals from the kit. Then I have to give everything enough time to dry and since I’m doing things at home in the evenings that generally has meant one coat a day and then we’ve done 3 coats. Really riveting stuff. I’d much rather be out taking photos but that hasn’t been possible. Hopefully after this week I’ll be able to get back to normal.

50 With A 50 – Week 22

It’s been a hectic week with lots of photography stuff to do so I haven’t had much time to do my #50WithA50 this week but I did get out once around the pond and started taking photos of the driftwood in the pond. Got a bit wet, turns out my boots aren’t waterproof all the way up 🙂

50 With A 50 – Week 21

It’s been a very busy week for photography, two days taking iceberg photos, 2 days taking school photos and a lot of editing. So I didnt have much time to take out my 50mm but I got lots (over a thousand) of other photos. I took the camera out for a walk at lunch time today for #50WithA50. It’s was a grey misty day but as I walked through some dead trees I spotted a crow just sitting on the top of the tallest tree. He was king of his own castle up there, posing for me until I got a little too close and he was like, ok I’m done now, and flew off.

50 With A 50 – Week 20

Went for a drive today hunting for icebergs around the Avalon. Came across a few and I decided that I’d take a couple of shots with the 50mm prime for my #50WithA50 project. This lens or at least how I was using it today isn’t the good for this at all. Not least because it’s so small I couldn’t fit any filters on it. Still it was a great day out and I’ve got lots of other great images which I’ll post on other forums. #icebergs

50 With A 50 – Week 19

Getting off the path again for this weeks #50WithA50 and a little deeper into the woods. People have been lighting small fires, they don’t seem like camp fires just people burning wood. Probably kids messing around. Fortunately the place is still too wet for it to be a problem and it’ll probably be too overgrown later in the summer for anyone to get in there. Still the patches of burnt wood with fresh twigs caught my eye so I decided to make it the subject of this weeks #50WithA50
