This last week has been the most gorgeous weather you ever did see. Crisp, clear blue skies~ and a gentle breeze. We even saw some temperatures in the 80's, which I really enjoyed! Of course, with all the buds waking up and blooming, I'm pretty shutter happy! ;) All of us have been practically living outside, hence my slight absence from my blog. Cuz really, who needs a blog when the world is so beautiful? :)
Anyhow, with the weather we've been having, the lighting is absolutely delicious, especially golden hour! It's so nice to be able to shoot with such a low ISO, and then a high shutter speed as well, because of how much light there is. It makes such a wonderfully crisp photo! So I've swamped myself with tons of beautiful pictures~ which is why I took the leap and finally decided to have a photography blog...all my own! It is a private blog for now, as I don't feel I'm ready to share my photos with the world yet. (there's a few of them already on pinterest *winks*) But I would be honored to add my photography friends, or anyone who is interested to my readers list. ;) Just leave a comment, and I'll be sure to add you!
|This is one of my favorite shots!|
One question: how is everyone recovering from the absence of picnik? I'm beginning not to miss it~ picmonkey just seems so much better! I like it a whole lot more.... :)
Lucia's April Photo Challenge~
I missed last month's challenge (night photography), but I shall not miss this month's~ Sunlit Portraits. Beautiful topic no?
I can't really remember why I got my camera out, but I ended up taking some awesome pics. of Ezra and LeAnn, and while I was at it, I tried my hand at some sunlit portraits, in the hopes that I might get a really nice one. I have a few I can chose from, and I think I finally decided which I like best. So without further ado:
|Can anyone say 'cutie'? :D|
I *think* that one is my fave.
|I love those eyes!|

Random thought of the day: I have totally fallen in love with this violin piece, and will be hopefully playing it at my next recital. Sad and haunting, this. It's gorgeous!
So have a lovely weekend peeps!
