Friday Shoot-Out Yard
I technically do not have my own yard, so I "borrowed" the yard of others in my town of Vineland. The majority of these pictures were taken on a "photo walk" with my boyfriend's daughter. She is eleven and has a fantastic eye for photography. She gave me permission to post two of her photos from the walk--she took the three red flowers and the squirrel.
This was the second photo walk that we have taken together and it is a great way to enjoy a nice day as well as explore and practice the art of photography. I know that I take a lot of pictures of flowers but they are so perfect for photography because of the variety of colors, textures, and shapes that they provide. Another wonderful thing about flowers and photography is the way the light hits the petals and the way shadow pools.
The red tub picture took a lot of attempts to get. I drive by the yard almost everyday but there are no shoulders on the road and there is almost always someone behind me as I am going by. I wanted to capture it, though, because I think that the people that use the red tub as a planter were very clever in their landscaping! I really love the whole vignette they created with the red tub as the centerpiece. Hope you enjoy!!
