Practice Sessions 1.1 | A Rose in Bloom












Playing with contrast and learning about low light/indoor photography. There is so much to learn and so much with which to play. That poor little finch couldn't figure out how to get back outside... the window was closed. I assume he made it out eventually as he was gone when I returned home from work. The rest are random photos. I saw some beautiful opportunities at Coffee Times here in Lexington while stopping for a coffee and some reading. I swear, that place is the best. Best coffee, best store front, best environment. If it paid a living wage, I would quit my office job to work there! Those little tins are candles! Aren't they incredible? And of course you can find horse paraphernalia all over town. I mean, it's Kentucky.

Everything else are things I put together just for fun. My favorite cookbook, my favorite mug, my favorite hairpins, my favorite boots, and my favorite teacup. Life is better with a few favorites.

P.S. Zeke wouldn't leave me alone when I shot the boots, so here's his face when I told him to step aside. Even his attitude is handsome.

    1. Hah! My husband and I call him our Uh Oh Baby. Basically, we were not looking to get a second dog but my brother and his girlfriend at the time rescued a litter of puppies. Found homes for all of them but Zeke. So... they decided to surprise us 3 Memorial Days ago with a little present. Not gonna lie, I was pissed at first. I offered to take the dog and re-home him because I didn't feel like we could really take care of a puppy properly. My husband and I were both gone a lot at the time and I felt like he needed more attention than we could give him. So I put an ad out...

      The first guy that called wanted him as a toy for his 3 year old and would not set up a neutering appointment like my ad required! He told me puppies from the shelter were too expensive... like do you even know how much neutering and vaccines are dude? The shelter is a helluva deal! I turned him down and he was mad. The second offer I got was from a recent high school graduate getting her first apartment with her boyfriend... Yeah, no. It was at this point we realized he needed some medical treatment anyway and shut the ad down. Best decision ever because he's really a very good boy and he was attached to my husband at that point anyway. I was right that raising a puppy would be hard and take a lot of time, but apparently we were going to do a better job than that first guy at least. :/

    1. Do it! I hesitated for a long time because I'm not a "real" photographer. I am really glad I bought my Nikon now!
