Hello, I’ve know that I haven’t posted in several months, and I apologize. I just entered high school, and life is crazy. I will try my best to get a post in at least once in two weeks. And big news, I got a new camera: Nikon D5200. I’m really happy about this, I’ve been asking for a DSLR for a while now.
I’ve been taking a lot of pictures with my new the past few months. Here are some of my shots:
That was pretty much the summary my photography in summer and fall. Winter is just around the corner! If you are interested in seeing more of my photography, click on the one of the pictures from my flickr photo stream>>>
Today’s daily prompt from the daily post is Lookin’ Out My Back Door “Look out your back window or door — describe what you see, as if you were trying to convey the scene to someone from another country or planet.”

When I look out my back door, I see a series of things. The first thing which catches my eye is the vegetable garden. It is a couple of feet high, and has soil filled in it almost to the top. A wooden barrier or boundary surrounds the garden, with a step stool in front for people to tend to the garden.
Another thing I notice is the next door house. They have a fence which separates our property from theirs. There is a small rectangular window in the side of the home. There are two pine trees in the backyard, a little taller than our house.
Coming in closer to my house, there is a deck, a reddish-brown color. Robins, sparrows, doves, and occasionally hawks or cardinals perch on the railing. They play, fight, and feed. In the spring, sometimes I even see small chicks learning how to fly.

A beautiful sunset taken from a plane. I had to use an iPhone, since I didn’t have my camera.
Finally, all the leaves on the maple tree in my front yard fell to the ground. The whole yard was covered in red leaves, like a carpet! This gave me a wonderful photograph opportunity.
This afternoon I went outside with my mom and photographed bubbles. The pictures didn’t turn out too great, so I photo shopped them.
It’s a bunneh!!
This morning, my mom was using eggs to prepare a dish, so I asked if I could have the egg shells. The reason for this was that I had a photography idea.
This is my picture:
It’s kind of cute.
As a bonus, I took a picture of the almost-full moon. I believe the forecast said it was going to be very cloudy on the night of the full moon, so I decided to photograph it the day before.
Unfortunately, my camera isn’t too good at photographing night time pictures, so it came out grainy.
A few days ago, I went for a walk in the prairie. It was in the evening, at the time of the sunset. I took this great picture during the walk.
Yesterday evening I visited the arboretum.
As I was trying to photograph a tree, while I was trying to get the lens to focus, I saw a bokeh-ish picture through the camera. So, I snapped a picture.
It’s not that good, but this count’s as bokeh, right?
I did not post yesterday, but it is still day 6 of the post a day challenge. Strike 1…
Yesterday I climbed the Revanasiddeshvara mountain in India. There is a temple on the top. On the way up, I took pictures of the mountains and rock formations around the mountain.
As a little bonus, I took a picture of a few animals.
