This years garden… (So far)

This years plant life in the garden & around the outside areas; 

These beauties were added to the front garden this year, as last years plants didn’t survive… Or at least I think they are done. Anyone out there know, if when your Hydrangea is just dried sticks, it can be revived?

I must say, I ABSOLUTELY adore Hydrangeas. They are indeed the best flowers! There are many planted in various parts of my outdoor space. Some have no blooms though… Specifically the back garden, those were planted last year as just wee babies, but are growing fiercely!

 

And this lavender, say what! Fantastic little purple pineapples, I’ve never seen anything quite like this before.

 

For good measure, some oh so wonderfully red Dahlias were added this year.

 

Don’t forget to check out the Facebook page and instagram! Things are coming soon!

Rose

One more for today; after battling the wind and sun, having a particular vision in mind, and failing to meet it… A photo of a rose.

Rage, Rage…

Nothing new on the old creative front. Currently puddling and frustrated.

So I went and made this wee placeholder, after going to a friends cottage and messing about with the fire.

(I suppose this is actually something creative, ha!)

Adventuring: An old barn exploration & Nature walk.

Went on a wee excursion through the neighbouring woods, on a mission to this old abandoned barn near by. Photos were made and some discoveries found;

There were quite a lot, and I mean A LOT, of spider nests on this walk. [It was hard to not make photos of all of them. ha!] Some were rather huge, like the size of my head really. Quite fascinating these nests are, you can see the layers upon layers in them. Very cool.

Inside the lower level, and somewhat safer area, some interesting things were found. And some not so interesting, translation, gross [People frequent this spot it looks like – um there is no washroom facilities, lets just put it that way…]. Top notch exploration.

The adventure ended when the heat started to get to be too much and the battery on the old Canon was running low. I think there will be more trips out there in the future, there’s always more to be found.

 

Post editing all done in Lightroom using VSCOfilm –  Film preset used; Agfa RSX 200, with some minor tweaking.

Afternoon walk

Mothers Day; This year was spent going on an afternoon walk with my son, to make photos and explore. A familiar spot that we frequent near by.

Down behind the neighbourhood library there is this very nice park, complete with a pond and a little creek. We spotted a few creatures, but only one felt like allowing a portrait; And these wee bugs, I suppose they posed a wee bit no?

 

What a neat little frog, isn’t he? [Guessing on the gender as I really have no idea].

As usual, all photos post edited in Lightroom using VSCOfilm presets and minor adjustments.

 

A break from the rain (Canon 70D)

For a minute or two, the rain stopped and the sun came out. And so the Canon 70D was picked up and some photography was made;

 

 

Part one: A chair study of sorts. I really love this cushion, originally it was meant for the couch, but somehow it ended up on this awesome old chair. The contrast is fantastic! (Don’t let the darkness fool you, it was indeed sunny out – Just a little shadow play)

 

Part two: A wee study of my daughters Sector9 longboard. I’ve always enjoyed the colour of this things wheels, and even now still when they’re well used.

*Post editing was minor; Lightroom to fix the levels a tad using VSCOfilm, and a little crop here and there.

10.16.14 Test shoot: Canon 70D

 

Finally busted out the BEAST (Canon 70D) today! Wandering around the backyard, poking the lens into interesting things found behind crevasses, on the house and other objects laying about. With only a small amount of post processing done in Lightroom via VSCO Film. Really, straight out of the camera these photos look just fine, but! A little tweaking never hurt anything either ;]

 

Looking forward to getting into some long awaited projects, and some wanderings outside of this perimeter I call home. Stay tuned…
