Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for the ‘Photography’ Category

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Photography is an art that takes skill, patience and lots of practice.  I truly admire and am inspired by the awesome photos some of you have taken.  Being a novice and still learning the features of the Nikon P520 camera, I’ve been doing a lot of practicing.

My son and I had an appointment at the University of Delaware and while there we took these pictures at the Native Plant Teaching Garden.

According to the University of Delaware’s Cooperative Extension Program’s website – “Native Plant Teaching Garden:  Designed to create an awareness of the cumulative environmental benefits that can be achieved through the use of native plants by providing an aesthetically pleasing demonstration garden easily adaptable to the home landscape.  The garden consists of different niches, each planted with material appropriate for the site:  a butterfly garden, bio-retention system (rain garden), meadow, foundation plantings, shrubs and paths, and perennial border.”

It was a beautiful day to be in The Teaching Garden and a great opportunity to get in a lot of practice.

With the change of seasons, I hope to get more outdoor shots including those dreaded snow days!

How do you think we did?

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay

Today’s “Friday Foodie Feature” is being preempted by these images which I captured this morning from my driveway.

As I sat in the car saying my “commuting prayer” I looked up to see a beautiful sun filled sky.  I immediately stopped praying, grabbed the camera from the back seat and snapped three pictures.  It was a few minutes past 8:00 am, and running late as usual I didn’t take time to review them.  The sun was so bright while taking these pictures I couldn’t really see what I had shot.

Everyday when I get to work the first thing I do is read “Our Daily Bread” Devotion of the day.  I hadn’t planned on viewing the pictures until later but when I saw the title of today’s devotion – THE GIFT OF LIGHT, I was filled with chills!

Now if you look at the pictures again you will notice red spots, strategic in their placement which may have come from the glare on the camera lens…

…but take a look at these cell phone pictures that I took last Saturday night as we crossed the Delaware Memorial Bridge a little after 8:00 p.m.
