I love this “heart” scarf and thought it would look really pretty with a candy bowl I borrowed from work.  I’m working on another post with the bowl and lighting so watch for that one later.

What could be more fun than puzzles with my grandson?  We “oinked”, “woofed”, “clucked” and “neighed” all weekend with some “choo choos” and “vroom, vrooms” thrown in too.

Regular Random: Five Minutes with a Bouquet

Desley Jane hosts this challenge each week and the rules are to pick a subject and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting.

I tend to overthink each shot so I’ve always gone over five minutes in my previous attempts.  But these challenges have helped me realize that I can just trust my instincts and for the first time, I’ve gotten several great shots in five minutes.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with the Sun

The rules of this challenge are to pick out an object and photograph it for five minutes only using different lighting and angles. ( I underscored this because I have problems following the time limit.)

Fortunately we have missed out on the worst of Hurricane Irma but we are still experiencing a lot of rain and wind gusts up to 50 – 55 miles per hour and losing power off and on.  Hurricane Matthew last year was enough for us, thank you very much!  Anyway, there’s no sun today so I decided to make my own.

I love suns and have one in just about every room of the house.  This one sits in my hall and I pulled it out in front of the window to get what light I could.

Regular Random – Five Minutes – Flowers on a Grave

The rules for this challenge are:

Choose a subject or a scene and spend five minutes photographing it using different angles and lighting.

On my way home from work the other day, I had a sudden impulse to stop by the cemetery near my home.  I don’t have any family or friends buried there (at least I don’t think so) but it’s calming to walk through and the chapel and grounds are absolutely beautiful.

And for once, I was able to stick with the five minute time limit for this challenge – but only because it was so humid outside!

A neighbor found this flower and gave it to my husband knowing that I would want to photograph it.  It’s a Maypop and it’s a favorite of bees and butterflies.

Regular Random – Lemonade

Desley Jane hosts #regularrandom each week and I’ve enjoyed playing along.

The rules are that you spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with the subject as little as possible.

Regular Random – Orange Tulip

Desley Jane hosts #regularrandom each week and I had so much fun last week that I decided to play again today.

The rules are that you spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with the subject as little as possible.

I have to admit that I didn’t follow all the rules.  I loved the first set of pictures so much that I took photographs the next day with different lighting.  The bright color made me smile!
