Meddling With Petals

Title: Meddling With Petals

Place: Winona Lake, Indiana

Description: Call me a sucker, but I actually took this picture for my girlfriend a long while ago. 🙂 I was walking back from a photoshoot and saw this one lonely petal on the ground and when I looked closer I saw that it looked like a heart! So like any good sucker I decided to take a picture of it and sending it to my girlfriend at the time! 🙂 Apparently she likes that sort of thing since we are engaged now and to be married in less than four months! I’m excited!!!! 🙂 Hope you enjoy this picture as much as I do 🙂 And if you have that special someone, send them this picture (I give you full permission!) to let them know that you ❤ them! 🙂

Come Lily Come

Title: Come Lily Come

Place: Winona Lake, Indiana,

Description: This picture is a pretty cool one! It was taken a while back when it was still warm outside (wait never mind…Here in Indiana it got up in the 60’s today… so it’s still warm) Silly weather… Anyway, this little lily pad was in a little zen garden near Grace College. The reason for the name is because I sorely wanted this Lily to just pop through so I could get a picture of its brilliance, but I never had the chance… Sad day! Anyway, I still love this picture, and I hope you will too! 🙂

Thoughts Of A Better Time

Title: Thoughts of a Better Time

Place: Winona Lake, Indiana

Description: Ahh…. The title of this piece is important. Thoughts of a better time when the sun actually shines, the flowers are in full bloom, rain graces the earth instead of snow, and the grass is lush and green…. This picture reminds me of those times in the spring and summer! I miss the terribly… Today here in Winona Lake, Indiana is the first day that it has been under 0 degrees with wind chill… It almost made me cry this morning but I stayed strong! And instead went out and bought a winter hat! 🙂 I may have shopaholics syndrome…. Shh it’s a secret! Anyway, hope you enjoy this picture and for those of you who are in the cold like I am I hope this reminds you of times past 😛

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Title: Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Place: Winona Lake, Indiana

Description: Alright, so it’s about time that I start getting into doing these Weekly Photo Challenges again! I’ve gone quite a few weeks without them and I miss them! So here in this weeks on Illumination! I was unsure of which picture I should choose for this week. I have a few different ones that would have worked, but I love this picture a LOT! This is an edit to a flower I did on my iPad. The flower is originally white and maroon, but through some editing took and my obvious genius (Just kidding, haha!) I was able to change a few colors and cause the blue so sort of “illuminate” the rest of the flower 🙂 I love it! And I hope you do too!

Natural Fireworks

Title: Natural Fireworks

Place: Chicago, Illinois

Description: It’s about time that I have a post from somewhere other than Winona Lake! I took this picture while in Chicago this past summer with my girlfriend, now fiancee. We had a BLAST! It was my first time to Chicago. It was fun to see the all of the art and architecture there. Anyway, this flower was such an interesting one that I found in one of the many parks in downtown Chicago. When I saw it I just had to take a picture. It reminds me of a firework in flower form! 😛 Let me know what you think of it! 🙂

Faint Glow

Title: Faint Glow

Place: Winona Lake, Indiana

Description: Oh man do I love this photo! The picture itself was very good, taken during one of my first photo shoots with nature back 8 months ago, but what I really love about this photo is the editing that I have done for it. It’s amazing what you can do with an iPad and a dream (alright, that was cheesy, but it’s somewhat true!) This really reminds me of Avatar and the faint glow that all of the vegetation had in that movie. If only our plants here on the earth were able to glow… Well actually there are some! Most of them are mushrooms though such as the Tsukiyotake and the Jack o’Lanturn mushrooms. (I did not take either of these pictures, they are just referenced to let you see these amazing mushrooms) 🙂 Hope you enjoyed my picture as well as these other pictures!

It’s the Little Things…

Place: Winona Lake, Indiana

Description: Alright, here is the second of the pictures I took with my new camera! Isn’t it just amazing??? I loved that fact that I could actually zoom in and it wouldn’t be utterly blurry! Well anyway, the edit is still using the iPad so don’t worry my whole premise for this blog still applied (for now) Haha! Thanks for checking this out! Hope you like the picture. 🙂
