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 – 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!

I bought these cute buttons for a project a couple of years ago and came across them the other day and thought it would be a colorful entry.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with Color

Here are the rules:

Pick an item or scene and photograph it for five minutes using different angles and light.

I do not have a green thumb so I can’t believe that I actually went out and bought several plants for my back porch.  But I’d love to get more bee and butterfly captures so hubby and I went off to the garden store.

Orange Coneflower 2

I’ve fallen in love with coneflowers – I think their umbrella shape is beautiful.  I also bought trailing verbena, dianthus and lantana.

So here’s hoping that the bees and butterflies will find their way to my door – and that my new plants survive the summer under my care.

Five Minutes – Regular Random

Desley Jane hosts Regular Random each week.  The rules are:

Choose an object or scene and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting and try not to interfere with it once it’s set up.  I confess – I have problems sticking to five minutes but I did with this post.

These are photos of my home office where momaskedmeforarecipe.com, photographyinpearls.com and photographyinpearls.photoshelter.com come together.  On my desk is an encyclopedia of birds and one for flowers (I really want to know what I’ve just captured!) as well as several photography books and different cookbooks.  (The flower on the monitor is a plumeria.)

Trust me – it’s much neater than my “real world” desk!

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.
