Dragon Fly, What Big Eyes You Have!

It is interesting once YOU capture something in photo, it becomes yours, and you start noticing things you have not before.  I have noticed the beauty of dragon flies before, even commented on a blog recently about how beautiful their pictures were, but it was not until today when I looked at my pictures that I noticed just how large their eyes are.  Photographers truly do see through different eyes.  I am not in the class with the pros, I will never reach that point, but I am so excited for the eyes that I see through now.

It just amazes me daily the things I am starting to see anew.  From the sand on the ground, to the true beauty of flowers.  I have always thought flowers were nice, but never been one to notice the shapes of petals or drops of rain on them, or tiny creatures in their habitat.  I am so grateful for this photographic journey of healing and awakening to the world around me.  These pictures all come from Mother’s gardening.  I can see why she finds peace when working around it.

Yellow Flowers Are So Pretty To Me

I Took these yesterday. If I am correct, we gave them to Mother a couple of years ago. She has kept them alive.

Mother used to have a black thumb.  Through adversity she prayed that she would be able to overcome and help bring life.  Her relieves stress by  pulling weeds and tending her flowers.  I have a category dedicated just to Mother’s Flowers, to showcase her beautiful treasures.  I am so grateful that she found this talent, because I can look out my back window and see this.

My First Attempt, Kind of Funny

20130604-185953.jpg

This was one of my first attempts. I was trying to get the little fly on the leaf.

I need to explain that I am the person notorious for cutting heads off in important shots. I finally started handing the camera to someone else. This is huge for me to attempt to take pictures. My Mother has loaned me her Canon Rebel XT camera to learn with and help with my healing.

Mother created  island of wild flowers.  Each flower provides a playground for butterflies and hummingbirds.  These pictures were some of the first ones I took.
