A great big thank you to Sony for the camera and MeRa for the inspiration. Today, I’d like to share photos from the first day I used my new camera.
Ashley & Jesse (daughter & son-in-law) invited their Sunday School class to our land, “Lazy B”, for a skeet shooting party & picnic. Steve & I arrived early to get set up. On the way out to our property, we saw the Navasota River overflowing its banks, almost to the bridge. We had lots of rain the previous week. We were so thankful because we had a drought in Texas last year…and our pond was mostly mud.
When we got to the Lazy B, Steve wanted to see how much rain our pond had. I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story . . .
Before I share my wildflower photos, I want you to know that the photos of the truck were inspired by MeRa. One of the biggest lessons I learned was let your photos tell stories. When my kids look back at our photo albums, they love reading the stories that go with the photos. Stories are inspirational. Hopefully those photos told our story 🙂
Our picnic was smack dab in the middle of bluebonnet season – Texas State Flower!
If you never been to Texas in March or April, you need to plan a trip. The wildflowers are gorgeous. When we were temporarily living in Idaho, Gentry & I flew to Texas to get her drivers license. We were staying with my parents on their 50 acres. As we drove to town, we both said. . . Bluebonnets!
If you’re a Texan, you completely understand our story 🙂
No bluebonnets in Idaho, but we saw the most amazing fields of bluebonnets on that short trip in 2006.
I love bluebonnets . . .
Thanks, MeRa for some fun great photography tips. I tried the 1/3 rule. I also liked the idea of taking 3 photos to record an event – close-up, mid-range or group, landscape.
I’m still learning how to use my camera most effectively. I’m having a blast. Most of my recent photos for homeschool activities have been taken with my Sony Nex.
Thank You Sony!
