Our neighbors own a hawk, which is pretty cool. I finally got around to photographing her the other day. Wow, it was awesome. : )) I mean, how often do you get to take pictures of a hawk from less then a foot away?

Yes, I have emerged from the grave.
Actually, I haven’t quite revived yet. In between a speech and debate tournament [in which my partner and I placed 4th!], college applications, and schoolwork, my free-time this week was more scarce than snow on the equator.
In other words, dear readers, I have failed to keep up my challenge.
I hoped it wouldn’t happen. Unfortunately, I was wrong.
This does NOT mean that I haven’t taken quite a few pictures over the past week. In fact, I have quite a few. So I’ll dump them on you now. : )
I’ll keep on posting here frequently, but I doubt I’ll be able to continue the blog as an official 365 photoblog. Or I could possibly strive to restart in February. Hm, maybe I’ll do just that…
I tried another Christmas lights photo. && I like this one even more. : )
The absolutely fabulous Caroline (and her photos will leave you stunned, no joke)
I had fun with long exposure on our road. : ))
…and I like this too.
Panning. At about midnight. Because my creativity was drained.
So, yes, this is late. But I legitimately took these photos on the correct date. I just didn’t upload them on time. In other words, this still counts. ; )
ALSO, _some_ people seem to think :coughmom&auntcough: that the last photos look like organs or something… Well, I apologize if they looked like that to you as well, but they are most definitely mints. : P
Alright, photos. I took these at night [no duh], and boosted up the aperture so I’d get rays of light off of the Christmas lights. Shutter speed was 30 seconds.
I love back-lit pictures, but I always seem to forget remember to go outside during sunrise and sunset. Thankfully I remembered this time, and got this little beauty of a picture. : )
I narrowed the aperture a bit so I’d be able to get the sun’s rays instead of a blob of light. Of course, it meant I had to slow down the shutter speed a bit too, so I was a little bit worried about camera shake since I was holding the leaf in my other hand. But I like how it turned out in the end…even though it took _way_ too many shots to get there. : P
