Day 7: Backyard Twilight.
Unfortunately I haven’t picked up my camera enough this year. Life just seems to always get in the way. I took a walk around the neighbourhood last week and although it’s too early around here for the leaves to start changing I was able to still get a few interesting shots.
This was my favourite photo of the day. Before heading out, I was watering the garden when I noticed something moving through the mist. I turned off the water and took a closer look. It was a female Praying Mantis! I ran inside, grabbed my camera and began shooting. I’ve only seen 3 in my entire life and felt privileged she had chosen my garden to be in! Even though she’s an insect, watching her clean off the droplets of water made me feel like I was watching something so much more special than that! Amazing!
A neighbour has these gorgeous Morning Glories growing all over her front fence. They’re all different colours and look so pretty I just had to take a few photos.
One of my favourite flowers and yet I can’t seem to grow them! Too many squirrels around! This Sunflower was part of a small gardenful, each over 5 feet tall!
This apple tree was actually in someone’s backyard but was so large the branches full of apples were towering over the sidewalk. They looked delicious!
And the rest of these were actually from a bouquet of ‘Just Because’ flowers Hubby brought home for me. A beautiful arrangement of Gerber Daisies, Lilies and other small flowers, I couldn’t wait to photograph them. I used several different backgrounds but the dark really made the colour in the flowers pop.
The two Gerber Daisies. Hubby said he just walked around picking random flowers he thought I’d like. I’ve never had a bouquet with Gerber’s in them, I was pretty excited!
Lilies have always been my favourite flower. Tiger Lilies were our wedding flower.
A close-up of one of the Lilies. Photographing flowers is so easy! Since they’re so small, coloured bristol board is the perfect backdrop. Pick out the flower you want to photograph and put it in a tall cup or vase. Put the bristol board about a foot behind the flower, set up your tripod and your all set!
I love flowers but I’m not exactly sure what these are. They look like a type of Marigold to me or maybe they’re a wildflower. Either way they complemented the arrangement perfectly.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get out again soon and get a little creative with the changing season.
