Hawk[eye]

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?

[[There and Back Again]]

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)

“Checkmate”

I had fun with long exposure on our road. : ))

…and I like this too.

Panning. At about midnight. Because my creativity was drained.


[Day 4]

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.

|| Rays of Sun & Leaves of Fall

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
