If you’re reading this, you didn’t follow instructions…
this is just a test post….
My oldest son is rarely EVER agreeable to being photographed. It’s not so much that he’s camera shy, as camera hostile…. but, because he loves his grandparents, he agreed to appear on camera- also partially due to peer pressure from his cousins. (and MAYBE some begging from his mommy….) He’s the one in the striped shirt.
So many other bloggers inspire me…. I LOVE looking at other peoples pictures, wondering how they got that light, or that angle, what lens they used, and then sometimes trying something new myself. In this case, I went back through my archives to find some of my favourite bug pictures, inspired by fellow photog blogger Mike Powell – especially by his amazing pictures of the scary creepy creature on his lavendar plant. Mine are not NEARLY as technically perfect- some of them were just spontaneous- “quick get that picture”, others were planned….and in the interest of time, I pulled a few from my personal facebook albums- which are in low resolution. (who knows which hard drive I’ve got some of them on!!!) Next time I’m feeling like a photo adventure, I might just go in search of BUGS in a more serious fashion.
Also, feel free to correct me on my insect names. I know my “dragonfly” actually has a different name thanks to thePalGuy and his blog featuring educated commentary on the various creatures he finds during his photowalks. (my commentary is usually limited to ‘this bug is PRETTY’)
