IT. HAS. BEEN. A. WHILE.
Have I been keeping up with the r/WeeklyPhotos 52 week challenge?
No. Because I suck. And I barely have time to do extracurricular activities outside of my work/gym, in truth. However, I am determined to catch up, so stayed tuned.
In order to balance out my schedule, I took the day off from the gym today and I had some time to shoot flowers around the house. Our gigantic rose bush is in bloom right now, but tonight I’m going to share my favorite photo of the poppies in our front garden.
My earliest memories of poppies hark back to summers in the country side of Romania. Our next door neighbors’ backyard was FILLED with poppies and toward the end of summer, their youngest daughter Maria and I would pick the dried pods and eat poppy seeds like they were candy.
I recall everyone telling me not to eat too much because it would make me fall asleep. But while Maria did pass the fuck out, I would be totally energized. They have the same effect to this day. These poppies, however, are nothing like the tennis ball sized beasts that grew as tall as my 5 year old self.
They’re gorgeous nonetheless, so please enjoy and come back for more photos soon! It’s flower season!
I should have posted these about a couple months ago but instead of complaining about that, I’m just going to casually drop the goods for y’all.
Here’s some more flowers from late spring this year.
It’s officially a month since my last update and shamefully, I did not deliver on my promises of having queued up posts. Truthfully, I was so busy and mentally occupied in the time leading up to the cruise, I just didn’t get around to it. But excuses, excuses, we’re not here to talk about that, so let’s cut to it.
I have a few chrysanthemum photos I want to share from late spring this year.
I tried some different editing styles in Photoshop with these to bring out a more vintage, cooler toned look. I need to mess around with this style, cause I definitely feel like I can enhance them even more, it’s just about finding that balance.
Hope you guys enjoy.
Good morning from Minneapolis! I have one last floral photo to share with you all from this set. There’s more in the archive, from a different day, but I haven’t gotten around to editing any of those yet.
I’ve found these large colorful daisy looking flowers really fun to shoot in recent years. I have no idea what they’re called though.
I was browsing the Game of Thrones subreddit when I came across a DIY double terrarium someone had done, one with Jon Snow, the other with Dany. The Dany terrarium was filled with succulents – ‘The Great Grass Sea’. Anyway, this reminded me that I need to update here! With pictures of succulents. :)
