The beauty of everyday life

With my creativity flowing again, I always feel like I’m looking at life in a different way. Instead of just seeing a pretty flower, I think of ways to frame it it and how I could make the color even more vivid. And with the fantastic cool fall morning, I begin to imagine just how I could capture that in words. It always seems like the little things are what spur the best creativity.

A couple weeks back, right after purchasing my new camera (a Nikon D90), I ventured into my backyard to test it out and see what I could capture. Not only was I very much out of practice with the whole photography thing, I was just a little bit intimidated by camera. I bought it so I could grow into it – and that’s just what I plan to do. Wandering around my backyard made me realize just how beautiful the little things are and helped me to see my own surroundings in a completely different way.

The next few images are images taken in my backyard and edited using HDR Darkroom Pro.

And so I discovered that one of the best places to go on a photographic adventure is in my own backyard!

Check out my Flickr for more images and please don’t take any of these without permission.
