Flowers were buy one get one free at the store last week! You know what that means . . .
I made it into the grocery store myself the other day and couldn’t help but buy some tulips. It’s nice to have a little bit of spring inside, especially since Mother Nature doesn’t want to grant my wish — it snowed twice last week, and there’s another big storm on the way 😦
Composition was a big focus of Photo 101 last week, and it’s definitely something I continue to work on to elevate my photos from looking like basic snapshots. Below are a few shots I submitted as part of my homework and the techniques I was attempting to use.

Rule of Thirds and Perspective:
The last part of Week One’s homework assignment for Photo 101 was to shoot a Day in the Life series about anything. I was foiled (again) by the lack of small living things in my care (read: no pets, no kids), so I needed to think a little outside the box on my main subject. After a few suggestions offered by my husband (day in the life of a bottle of wine, anyone?), I eventually settled on a little blue owl figurine that lives around my desk at home.
Even owls need a little boost in the morning sometimes.

Russia sounds cold . . .
Dreaming of warmer climes. Good night!
Eh, I tried to “tell a story” with the series, but I still don’t feel very creative. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to photograph around the house when it’s too cold to go outside?
