This past summer living in Carman, Manitoba I did not have many people to practise my photography on, being new in the town and not knowing anyone before moving! And so, in lieu of people I took many many pictures of flowers. Yes, flowers. They are quite good subjects to practise photography on because they, unlike people, don't move. It was also a really great way to learn about light and how it impacts your subject, and it was helped me try to get different perspectives to make a photo more interesting. Probably the main thing it helped with was boredom, I had waaaaay to much free time for my own good last summer.
I realize that most of these look like they belong in a calendar; but, I spent too much time with flowers this past summer not to give them a little blog recognition.
