Posted in nature, photowalk, weather


Last year on this day, it snowed in Houston.  The next day, I went out and took engagement photos in temps in the upper 30’s/low 40’s.

One year later, it was nearly eighty degrees.  A perfect day for a photowalk.

I went out with my camera and my new compact macro lens.  At first, I started gathering fall leaves, which, in Houston, peak the first week of December.  I had many to choose from, but they were all one shape.

Then, I started walking around the complex, looking for more leaves.  I found a few.

Since I was out, I decided to check my mail and I saw some flowers and poinsettia’s by the apartment office so I tried my new lens out on those.
I saw some white poinsettia’s in the window of the office, so I went in and asked if I could take pictures of it. There was also a white poinsettia in the window by the pool.  
For some reason, even though I knew the water would be cold in the pool, it called to me anyway.  As usual, water always gives me great shots to take. (Try not to picture me lying down on the concrete poolside hanging sideways over the side as I tried to get these shots).  

I had fun getting shots of leaves in the water.  This required me to be thankful I do occasional yoga and that I was wearing yoga pants at the time.

 I loved this leaf. It reminded me of a butterfly.

Then I gathered more leaves, and then took them back to my apartment for more fun.

All in all, it was a good day of photography for me.  The new lens was interesting and I do like it, it will just take some getting used to as I continue to study the best way to get the best shots.

Tomorrow, by the way, it might get to a high of 57 degrees.


I seek to live, breathe & work creatively. Late bloomer. I survived breast cancer and so much more. I will meet each challenge w/determination, badassery & sass!
