After the rain, the air is so moist and just at the right temperature that the fog rolled in. I walked down to the intersection to get some photos of the traffic lights in the fog. Now, I kinda regret, I didn’t bring my tripod for long-exposure shots with me. But there is always a “next time”.
When Kevin, the girls and I drove home from shopping, we saw quite a few show cars in the parking lot by one of the corner stores in our community. We’ve decided to make a short stop and look at some of these beautiful old cars. The Hope Fellowship Church hosted this event in The Colony, today. This is their third car show event. Of course, I’ve captured some photos of the oldtimers. Oh my! I came home and looked at the pictures, I’ve noticed I did only photographed the red cars. 😀
Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa)
Happy Dragonfly Summer!
I never can wait for May to arrive in Texas. This is the most colorful time of the year, when the Texas Prairie is in full bloom. We live in the Blackland Prairie zone, and I always love to “discover” new wildflowers. Several years ago, I stumbled across this beautiful and delicate purple flower named “Venus Looking Glass”. While I can’t find it on our property, I always sneak over to catch a few photos in my neighbors’ yard. Right now, they have several spots growing along the grass strip in the back alley.
Today, I had some fun playing with the filters on my computer. I wanted to see, how the photos come out. Hmm, they look very interesting compared to all the colorful pictures. But the filtering is not something, I’d do on a regular basis. I like the natural colors so much better. 😉
On Sunday evening, while I was waiting for the Moon to get behind the Earth’s shadow, I took another shot of the constellation Orion. Waiting for the big event of a Lunar Eclipse can be very boring . Meanwhile I always try to make the time feel shorter by capturing photos of the night sky. Orion was the perfect object in the January Winter sky.
