This first one is of dead sunflowers from last summer that are on the side of the house. I really enjoy taking close ups.
I was playing with the contrast of focusing the foreground and blurring the background. It makes for an interesting shot.
This picture looks a lot better full size. My mom claims that the fruit on this tree used to be apples. They look like berries to me. Little wrinkly berries.
I just plain got lucky with this one. I just love that the background is so muted and the branch is so vivid. I honestly got lucky with every one of my photos today. When it comes down to it, I have no idea what I am doing, but I am having fun pretending.
