This past week has been pretty wild between Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and all that other junk. But I’ve still got two nights of Blogvember to share some new stuff with you guys, and tonight I want to share another ‘finny waves’ macro picture of the fish fins I photographed last week.
I’m not drunk anymore! Which is unfortunate, but also good for this blog because I gotta update this before I head out for work tonight.
Anyway, my dad went fishing a few days ago on Lake Michigan and caught a couple fish. I sat down and photographed their fins with my macro lens and I’m really satisfied with how they turned out. I feel like if I didn’t know they were fish fins, I wouldn’t know what they’d be, and I like that.
Heyyy. I didn’t get a chance to update last night cause it was basically midnight by the time I got home. I also didn’t manage to take as many pictures of ALL OF THE LIIIIGHTS as I had planned, but I did get a pretty sweet shot of this highly lit up polar bear at the end of the walk.
While summer is and always will be my favorite season in the year, I am a total “white girl” when it comes to autumn. I love everything pumpkin. I have definitely rolled my eyes more than a few times at some of the pumpkin flavored products out there (let’s be real, pumpkin barely has a flavor to begin with) but I still pick some up. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are my Starbucks lifeblood.
That said, we bake fresh pumpkin periodically throughout autumn in my household, and if you’ve never had fresh baked pumpkin, YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON A GIFT OF GOD HIMSELF YA’LL. My parents recommend pumpkins that aren’t orange pumpkin colored. Like you know those big white ones or the big taupe etc? Those generally make the most delicious sweet baked pumpkin. Sooo good.
My dad bought a taupe one the other day and baked half of it this morning. It’s delicious! The other half was chillin’ on our kitchen table, so I grabbed my camera and took pictures of the innards, which looked like a really cool stringy orange cave of seeds and tendrils. Here’s a neat little closeup.
Sometimes when I go through my archives searching for something to share, I find photos I overlooked in the editing process.
Tonight’s one of those nights!
