52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog


26. Light and Airy

Light and Airy

Little Miss Mindy
had a great plan
to take a photo she loved.
Along came a spider
who wove a web right beside her
that fit her theme like a glove.

On a recent frosty morning I admired the work of a spider in my back yard. I thought it fit the theme, “Light and Airy” perfectly.

50. Up Close

One morning last week I noticed while letting the dogs outside that all the flowers, grass and trees were covered in a very fine dew.  I grabbed my camera quick and started taking shots with my macro lens before the heat of the sun dried it all out.

I couldn’t help but think how similar this photo of my dill weed plant covered in dew resembled a branch of pine needles covered in tiny snow flakes. Then I chuckled when I remembered that the high that day was going to be 82 degrees! Winter time in Florida… ahhhhh

Dew on the Dill


39. Shallow Depth of Field

The weather has been so beautiful the last few days. We had our first real dip in temperature of the fall season. The humidity dropped and for a couple days I had the slider open during the day enjoying the fresh air. It motivated me to grab my camera and go poke around my back yard to see what theme I could find. I had a lot of “That Reminds Me” moments and loads of “Up Close,” photos because I was playing with my macro lens. I decided to go ahead and use my “Shallow Depth of Field” theme. Sorry, I couldn’t pick just one!

This yellow flower hasn’t bloomed all summer. As soon as we had a couple cool days it just exploded with flowers.
I love this succulent. I had a mini version of it in Panama.
One of my favorite things about living in Florida is having 2 growing seasons for our garden. The cucumber plants are going nuts this year!
The tomato plants are almost as tall as me already! I think fresh tomatoes for Christmas will be pretty amazing.
We have already eaten fresh green and yellow beans twice for dinner!
Yep…. gardening in Florida works for me!
