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.
When I woke up in the morning a few days ago, the first thing I saw through my window was trees and bushes caked in ice. When I took a closer look, I notices that the ice had formed a spiky formation on branches and twigs.
What I heard was that if there is fog on a day in which the temperature is below freezing, you get these cool formations. Fog is made of water droplets. If the temperature is below freezing, the droplets a cooled, allowing them to remain a liquid in the air. After the droplets touched a freezing surface, they froze in that position and shape, creating these formations.
I just put up my Christmas tree this afternoon. My mother and I wrapped it in lights, and hung special ornaments all over it. It gave a nice photography opportunity.
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.
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?
