yellow flower

I’m not sure what kind of flower this is but I really just liked the vibrant yellow orange color and the little hint of green from the leaves.

Maybe the colors spoke to me because there was the tiniest hint of fall in the air with just a wisp of coolness to relieve the normally high humidity that is so common in Florida.

I took this picture of my dog Wrigley on a walk in our neighborhood just as an experiment using aperture priority on my new-ish camera.

There is something about the colors in this photograph that appeal to me: the pink tip of her tongue, the green of my neighbor’s lawn, the gray asphalt, and Wrigley’s brown and white patches. I also love to imagine what she was thinking.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I caught a glimpse of the bright pink sky out of my bedroom window so of course I grabbed my camera and headed outside to shoot a few pics. This is one of my favorites. I love how saturated the pinks are and the how they melt into violet and then blue. I also really like how the fringed edges of the dark palm fronds contrast with the vivid sky.

My new Oly: the OM-D E-M10

After years of thinking about upping my photography game with something more advanced than a point-and-shoot and months of deliberating over which cam to buy, I finally pulled the trigger and bought a serious piece of equipment.

I opted for a micro four thirds (MFT) / mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC) for DSLR-quality images and control in a much more compact body size.

Now I just need to learn how to use it!

 

PS- the irony of using my cell phone cam to take this picture wasn’t lost on me.
