Photo A Day Challenge - June Week 3 and 4

Since LIFE got in the way last week I didn't get to post. So this week I will post from where I left off through the 30th.

And as a side note, if I don't get around to everyone or post a reply, I am sorry, and will try to do better...Sometimes...well....LIFE has a way of pulling the rug out from under you and it is hard to post from the floor.....

So with out further comment...:

Day 15 - Back yard - which in my  case is really the side yard, as we don't use the back yard...and as you can see it is in need of a mow!

Day 16 - Bright - Though it is hard to tell the clouds were really a bright white!

Day 17 - Stripe - This is the strip pattern on one of the caladiums I have in my yard

Day 18 - Something old - This is a picture of a hoe that belonged to my grandmother, that I still use today, sitting down of course as the handle is only about 3 feet.  Works great around small plants!

Day 19 - Refreshing - When  I DON'T have to cook!!!

Day 20 - a Book I am reading:

Day 21 - summer - my husband working in the garden at my dad's last year

Day 22 - Green - was at the doctors office and since I carry my camera, I took this picture of green!

Day 23 - pair - a pair of my jewelry tools -

Day 24 - Hot - from a Winn Dixie ad on my desk:

Day 25 - cold - ice cream!

Day 26 - Thermometer - the closest I had on hand.....

Day 27/28 - Fruit and Yellow - A yellow ceramic pear:

Day 29 - Grass - in my yard

Day 30 - Looking up - Through a tree in my yard -

So there you have it....I hope you enjoyed it as much as I and I look forward to July!

Personal Photo - Stormy Weather

Well here in "Sunny" Florida is has been a rainy start to our "summer time" weather patterns.  So when the personal challenge this month was for stormy weather...I was like "yes" that I can problem.....

We were told,  Photography shouldn't be limited to only sunny days. Stormy weather conditions provide many opportunities to capture moody, dramatic, and creative images.  For example, you can take stormy weather photographs from the dry comfort of a porch or from a vehicle.

Well we had stormy weather and I took some of my photos from the vehicle. I was on my way into town.  I think they give a very "end of the world" feel sometimes when the clouds get really dark and en mass! 

So then I tried taking pictures outside while it was raining. But that is really hard to do, but I did manage to get a few with the yard light illuminating the rain.  One one I used the flash and you can see the rain drops...well sort of. The bottom left looks like there is lightening in the least that is what I think it is.

And then of course there is always that sweet aftermath when everything looks and smell clean. I love the smell after the rain!

So there you have my pictures of stormy weather.  I used Picasa3 on my computer to edit the pictures and create the collages...(which I love to do)

My camera is a Fujifilm Finepix ax. Nothing fancy, but does the job!

Thanks for looking and check out Donna's site for more!
