Day 25

Today my family was snowed in for a few hours after my dad's car got stuck in the lane. That was awful and all, but while we were pushing him out I got this photo of a pine tree next to our lane.  So maybe it wasn't all bad.

Day 24

The snow has been coming down like crazy all yesterday and so far today.  This is a fence along the side of the pen where I keep my pigs. The fence has become covered in these vines. I added the Holga effect to this photo, I don't know why, but I've been using that effect a lot lately.

Day 23

On Sunday my mom took me to a horse show.  I really enjoyed watching the horses and riders working together in the Trail classes, which is definitely my favorite discipline  This is one of the horses entered in the trail class. I added the Holga effect.

Day 22

This is my first attepmt at portrait photography on this blog. I got my 2 year old brother to pose for me. Unfortunately, 2 year olds, while cute, do not like to stay still.  I painted on black and white, but left the bear colored to add interest to the photo.

Day 21

Yesterday we got 4 or 5 inches of snow. I went out while it was still coming down to try to get a good one for today's post. I actually didn't have too much luck. This was my favorite.

Day 20

This photo I took a couple days ago. It's a farm elevator that has been sitting in a field near my house for as long as I can remember.  I again liked the original photo, and left it exactly the way I took it.

Day 19

This is another photo from the construction site. I liked this one just the way it is, and decided not to edit it. This is one of my favorite images I got at that site so far.

Day 18

This is a pile of bricks that was at the bridge construction site I photographed the other day. I added the Lomo effect.  I've also edited the size of my blog, so now the photos will be larger and easier to see.

Day 17


Yesterday I set out with the goal of getting a good animal photo for today's post. I got this photo of my cat after trying unsuccessfully to get a good one of my dog.  I added the Lomo effect to this photo.

Day 16

In the town where I live they recently built a new bridge, and are in the process of taking down the old one.  Today I went out and took a variety of construction themed photos, and this one is my current favorite.

Day 15

Happy Valentines Day! I was about to give up on taking a themed photo today, then my brother started asking who wanted to play cards. So, this is what I came up with. In retrospect, I wish I would have used a black background to add drama, but I'll just have to try that next time.

Day 14

 I figured that since Valentines Day is tomorrow I should do some candy, flowers, etc. So yesterday we had flowers, so today is the candy. 





This is just a kind of fun series, demonstrating what happens when you leave chocolate laying around our house.

Day 13

This is a macro photo of some flowers I had gotten for my birthday ages ago. The flowers are really dried up, so to add some color I used the Orton effect. Sorry I took so long to post today,  I think I had photographer's block.

Day 12

Yesterday I went to the Iowa State Fairgrounds for the Iowa Beef Expo. This is the Livestock Pavilion. I added the Holga effect from picmonkey.com.

Day 11

To take this photo I was hanging upside down on a jungle gym.  I wanted to get a unique perspective.  The hardest thing was to hold still enough to get a picture. I had to take the picture pretty fast because the blood rushed to my head and I couldn't hold on for very long. (Click the picture to see it larger)

Day 10

I'm not sure how to describe this photo.  I placed my camera at the top of a slide to give the perspective of a little kid about to slide down.  I used a cross process effect.

Day 9


I went to a little park here in town yesterday.  I've really been loving the Lomo effect recently, and like how it kind of makes the colors pop out a little more than they would have.

Day 8

I've been experimenting with different effects. This one is called Orton. I like how it gives the ribbon an extra luster.

Day 7



This is a necklace of my sister's. I put the necklace on a piece of fabric and took some pictures.  When editing, I used an effect called Lomo on picmonkey.com, then made it black and white on the same site.

Day 6

This is some yarn taken with the macro feature on my camera. (Click on the picture to see it bigger) I love how you can see individual fibers of the yarn, and I'm also a big fan of natural, directional light as displayed in this photo. Sorry I didn't post sooner today.  See you on Monday!
