My son’s history project.
A place where memories were made.
I treasure my hubby for helping me capture this shot.
Gotta treasure Mother Nature.
Love how well it photographs on rainy days.
Love adding more flowers.
This week for the WordPress photo challenge, Krista asked us, “What do you treasure? What’s important to you?”
There are so many treasures in this world. Personally, I’m grateful for the simple treasures like time spent with family, friends, our pets and Mother Nature. What about you? What do you treasure?
Creating a calm environment for sunrise.
Brings a smile to my face.
Just after a morning rain.
This week’s photo challenge by Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks that we share photos of the golden hour just after sunrise and just before sunset. I took the first three pictures during the golden hour.
However, the gallery photos are examples of playing with my manual camera settings utilizing the most recent advice offered by Wenjie Zhang for Photography 101 this week along with advice offered by Ming Thein in his two prior posts. These are not exactly during the golden hour, but with the cloudy afternoon the lighting was similar.
Mahalo to Wenjie and Ming for helping me to explore the manual settings on my camera. I even tried the live-view setting to help me with lighting. This made it easier to delete some of my bad photos before I loaded them on my computer.
I still have a long way to go before I perfect my settings, but at least I am no longer afraid to try experimenting with lighting.

Playing with camera settings and macro lenses.
How many can it hold?
This week Sara Rosso is challenging us to share photos that represent patterns to us. The world is full of patterns so I can’t wait to see what others are posting. My favorite patterns are from mother nature, but I also love architectural patterns. What about you?
Patterns in Hawaiian Ginger.
Patterns in Lemon Balm.
Patterns in Orchids.
Patterns on Turtles’ shells.
Patterns on Bulbul.
Temple Design Patterns
Patterns in architecture & clouds.
More architectural patterns.
