E is for Eyes

EThis year I’m participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge again. I thought it might be fun to share some of my photography instead of always my words. They say a picture is worth–well, you know what they say πŸ˜‰

I will try to keep these blog posts short and sweet, while still offering a little bit of insight into each photograph, just for fun.

E is for Eyes… with a bonus elephant eye πŸ˜‰

We went to the zoo a couple years ago and I left depressed for the animals… but with a few good photos. Like this one of Lucy:

Also, Jo bought me a macro lens for Mother’s Day a while back… I had fun playing with it, as you can see in these two similar shots:

This is Eowyn. She’s one of our kitties — the one who always freaking blinks when I try to take her picture, which makes this much more than ‘just another cat photo’:

Lastly we have Mr. Bogle, who lives at the Birds of Prey Centre in southern Alberta:

D is for Danica. Because of course it is πŸ™‚

Dani modeled for me out in the snow one warm wintery afternoon. This shot was both of our favourites from the day:

The conversation preceding this photograph went like this:

Me: Dani, I like the light in your room right now, how about you roll over so I can take your picture.
Dani: *rolls over*
Me: *takes picture* Thank you
Dani: You’re welcome. I’m going to go back to half-sleeping now.

Finally, I snapped this one in a parking lot when we were on vacation in Nova Scotia in 2012. It turned out to be one of my favourite shots from the whole trip:

C is for Chai Latte, like this one I had with Jo after we took a very long walk to get to our favourite coffee place. It might also be for cookie:

C is also for cloud… like this one which I love because apparently, at my heart, I’m still 12:

It’s also for Camerabag, which is the program I use these days to do 99% of my photo editing. Like in this picture:

A is for Atreyu:

I used to smoke about a pack a day. Quitting was possibly the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and getting a dog was my reward for that. Tre is that dog.

A is also for Absinthe:

She doesn’t like posing for photographs as much as Tre does, so I have fewer of them.
