august 1



if you are new to this blog, you should know I am not a professional photographer by any means. though I do love taking photos and have taken thousands over the years. I get such a kick out of seeing something I like and capturing it. It's as close as you can get to evidence of a vivid memory. when my son was in our backyard taking photos, I asked him to take a picture of the sky because it was so beautiful. this is exactly what the sky looked like. he captured it perfectly. if you look into the sky, there is a silohuette of a bird. I love how you can see evidence of insects in the leaves as well.

I like the bitten leaves. How neat?
Taking pictures of Nature is just awesome.

If more people took photos, there would be more nature and animal-lovers out there, bent on preserving the world.
