Pictures…

A friend once said that my greeting is a bit on the odd side.  *thinks about it* Maybe, but I hope that I’m greeting humans.  And I think it looks cool, LOL.  Anyway, today I am going to be doing a photography post.  I haven’t done a real photography haul since October, when my dear Pixie died a slow death.

Since October, I have replaced her with a Nikon. (Yep, went from Canon to Nikon) So, here’s the photos I’ve been saving up for y’all.

If you follow my Instagram, you’ve probably already seen this.  I’ve started a bookstagram, and I’ve been having so much fun taking pictures.  (You can follow me here.)

The daffodils have been blooming for quite some time now, so I’ll have a lot of pictures of them.  Last year hardly any daffodils bloomed, and so they’re extra special this year. 😉

I have no idea what kind of flower this is, but isn’t it pretty?  (This post will mostly be flowers, LOL.  All the flowers are blooming! *throws petals in the air*)

Of course, we have to have Star, right?  She likes her hat, and her book. 😂

I think I have more animal pictures than I thought…

And of course, we need pictures of water.  Water is important. *nods*

This flower smelled SO GOOD.  Like, you could be walking a few yards from it, and then the smell hit you, and AH. SO. YUMMY.

I have this thing for camellias.  Camellias are probably my favorite flowers.

LOOK AT IT. JUST LOOK AT IT. *swoons*

I also have this new obsession with flower petals on the ground.  They’re just so pretty.

I like running water, what can I say?

BABY DAFFODILS.

Little teeny flowers.

Aren’t these flowers just awesome?  I seem to think so…

I mean, look at that! They are awesome.

The simplest thing that makes spring so happy are the little, light green leaves you see emerging, eager to begin new life.

Here’s a secret.  Amie love tulips, and where she lives it’s too warm for tulips to bloom without a little help.

Rose doesn’t understand why I like lampposts so much.  😂

DSC_0281.JPG

Itty bitty crocuses. ❤

THAT SUNSHINE. 😍

And now we have another animal!  A little quail!

Now we have moved on to my obsession with water droplets.

DSC_0394.JPG

AH.  WATER.

And the hawk.

And of course, we must end with the lamppost. 😉

What was your favorite picture?  Do you enjoy photography posts?  What is your favorite song?

~~Amie~~

Spring!!

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??? Oh, maybe that was a little over dramatic.  Ahem, let’s try this again.  Can you believe it?  I’m doing another photography post!  That’s right!  Winter (and all its wonderful coldness) has moved outta the South, and now a drizzly spring has taken its place.

*Does a face plant*

Yes, when I mean drizzly I’m serious.  MY PHOTOS TESTIFY!  Oh, right.  I wasn’t taking pictures in the rain.

Ahahaha–Let’s just move on.

LOOK AT THIS!  What a work of art…except the red rose is kinda turning black.  Yes, I used Valentine roses for a photo shoot.  What else are they good for?

IMG_1823.JPG
See?  Good props!  Haha!  My expression!

So, I decided to take a photo shoot of myself.  I mean, you need good pictures of yourself, right?  But I only got about ten from a hundred.  Why?  Self timer.  *Glowers*. and little sisters. *scowl*. Okay, my sister wasn’t that bad, she just wanted a photo shoot too.

IMG_1862.JPG

Pretty flowers!  These are super cool, since the turn from white to brown through out the blooming process.  Man, the water tower photo bombed that one. 😦

IMG_1866.JPG

Yayayayayyayayyayayya!  The Bradford pears are blooming!  Am I the only one that likes their scent?  Yes?  Oh, bother.  *hides face in hands*

IMG_1873.JPG

Am I the only person who doesn’t like photographing bright colors?  They seem to be too bright…or something.  But these flowers are pretty!  Look how little and cute they are ❤

IMG_1876.JPG

The leaves are on their way!  *dances happily*. Because after the leaves means warm weather…and with the warm weather longer evenings…and with longer evenings equal wonderful strolls…and swimming!

IMG_1881

Yay!  The hyacinths are blooming.  Aren’t they pretty?  They’re my dad’s favorite flowers. We have purple and white, but only the purple have bloomed so far…

IMG_1888.JPG

More Bradford pears!  And the sky is actually remotely blue!  :0. It’s so shocking.  😉

IMG_1890.JPG

I had this very odd idea to use shells and flowers together.  I mean, it was supposed to work in theory.  What do you think?  Does it makes sense?

IMG_1901.JPG

While I was taking pictures, I came across this friendly pill bug.  Some how, he managed to get in at least six photos.  Maybe I was practicing my portrait skills????  Maybe???

IMG_1921.JPG

Here’s a Quince tree.  Don’t you just love the white and green?  It had SO many leaves!  Guys, it’s just March!  There’s craziness in the air!  (Or maybe that’s only me…)

IMG_1922.JPG

And what’s a photography post without pictures of my favorite creatures?  Hello, Mama cow!  You look so pretty with all the flowers behind you…(And your fellow kin folk)

IMG_1924.JPG

IMG_1926.JPG

So, I said it’s been raining?  It had just poured before I went out to take these pictures.  Look how bright green the leaves are!  And the water droplets!  And!!!! *dies*

IMG_1929.JPG

Peach blossom time!  Do y’all like peaches?  I know I do!  Nothing like a sun warmed peach on a hot day.  I am a peach fan, to be sure!  (Though I prefer berries…)

fullsizeoutput_14f.jpeg

So…I’m not sure if I like this.  Ya know, it would make an awesome screen thingy.  Ya know, lock screen thing?  I’m feeling un-intelligent right now because I can’t think of the word.

IMG_1932.JPG

SOOOOO PRETTY!!! *Eyes pop outta head*. I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS ACTUALLY A PHOTO I TOOK!!!!! *gasps*. I should enter this in a contest.  Ya know, I will hold on—-

Done!  It’s entered.  *dances*. But!  I probably won’t win.
