This photo was taken when my family visited the St. Louis Zoo. I liked it as a black and white photo because the only color was the grass in the foreground and the wall in the background, since the zebras who are the subject of the photo are black and white themselves.
My family visited the St. Louis Zoo for my brothers birthday. From looking through my photos, the best photo I took was of a canadian goose. Which is funny to me because I can take pictures of them here at home, and don't have to travel for hours to see them in a zoo. Hopefully I'll find some good photos of more interesting animals for tomorrow's post.
On the way home from my 4-H meeting last night I had to stop and take a photo of the beautiful, delicate pink tint of the sky. It didn't turn out the way I had planned, but I think it was still an interesting picture.
This is a photo of one of my grandpa's two bottle calves. His name is Burr. My little brother and I enjoy watching him feed the calves, and whenever we come home Noah (my brother) will talk about giving Burr his milkshake.
Today I wanted to get a sort of abstract photo of the branches of this tree. I like the patterns created by the tree's branches and the contrast between the bright blue sky and the vibrant green leaves.
This is another photo of the cottonwood tree in our yard. Or, more accurately, the leaves of said tree. I took this photo in the morning and the sun is rising behind the trees in the background. I love how you can see all the veins and lines of the leaf. I also liked this photo in black and white, as it added to the details and made the photo less busy by taking out the extra colors.
The cottonwood tree in our yard was a little slower than usual in blooming this year, but today it's new little green leaves were the subject of this macro photo. I like the lighting in this photo, and the angle from which I took the picture so the sky is the background.
I was up at the crack of dawn this morning, which is an incredibly rare occurrence ;) So I went out and took some photos of the barns that were facing the rising sun to try and get an interesting lighting. It didn't turn out the way I pictured though.
Today my little brother was out playing in the grass and I thought it would be a good time to take some pictures. Unfortunately he didn't think so. He decided that he wouldn't look at the camera, and if he did he would be anything but smiling. So here I am with a profile/sideview portrait.
Yesterday afternoon the light shining through the leaves and grass in the forest arrested my attention. The scene just inside the treeline with the little run down shack looks almost like a picture from a fairytale.
I love this photo. The early morning dew on the long grass looks good in real life, but making it black and white gives it an air of sophistication and elegance. The texture and depth of this photo add to that impression as well.
I was going through some of the photos from last weekend at the livestock judging contest, and I noticed this close up of one of the walls in Kildee Hall. I love the texture of the different sizes and shapes of rock used.
