Thus Ends July

This is several days late, but better late than never! 🙂

My summer seems kinda run together, so I’m not quite sure what all happened in July. Thankfully I have pictures to look back over to see when we did what, and so I shall write about our adventures in July.

BIBPC the Fifth

FEATURED IMAGE MADE BY CHARIS.

Here is my semi-celebratory blog post for 1,000 followers. Boring Into Beautiful Photography Contest is back! (Ugh, I really wish I had named it something else but I don’t want to change everything now. BIBPC it shall have to be.)

Fairly Hard Decisions

Like my pun? Heh heh. 

Our county fair is coming up in a few weeks and I’m having a hard time deciding what to enter in the photography section. I actually haven’t taken that many great pictures in the last year, but I still like entering. I’m going to post a few of my top picks and see if you can help me narrow the choices down at least a little bit.

Decision #1: People Category “A posed or candid photo of a person.”

People Entry #1
people6
People Entry #2
people5

people4
People Entry #4
people3
People Entry #5
people3.5
People Entry #6
people2
People Entry #7
people1
People Entry #8
A few of these I don’t like very much, but I just wanted to make sure no one else did. 🙂

Vote below.

Decision #2: Pets “Your best shot of your companion animals.”

Puts Entry #5

Also, if you really liked a photo I’ve posted before that isn’t in this post, you can tell me in the comments and I’ll see if I’d like to add it.

Vote below.

Decision #3: Wildlife “Wildlife in a natural habitat or zoo”

Wildlife Entry #5

You may see some photos in some categories overlap. I can’t do the same photo in different categories when I’m entering in the fair, but sometimes I can’t decide which category to enter it in, so I’ll do both in the post.

Vote below.

Decision #5: Rural R* “A photo that defines our county”

Rural R2
Rural R* Entry #1
Rural R
Rural R* Entry #2
*The R stands for the name of our county. 😉

Vote below.

Decision #6: Architecture “A structure, such as a building or bridge that is the focal point”

architechture1
Architecture Entry #1
architechture
Architecture Entry #2
These two are the same picture, but I couldn’t decide if I should do it in black and white or not.

Vote below.

Decision #7: Close-up “An object photographed at very close range, with the subject clearly defined and recognizable”

Again, if you remember you liked a photo that I took and it isn’t here, comment away! 😛

Vote below.

Decision #8: Pictorial “A photo that conveys a feeling or an emotion.”

pictorialpictorial

Do you think this would work for pictorial? :/

Vote below.

 


Now all that remain are the categories where I only have one photo. I’m not sure if these would really count or not, but I might give them a shot.

Action “The focal point is a moving object.”

Assateague (19).JPG

Yeah… the focal point is my feet and they aren’t moving objects. 😛 It’s a pretty big stretch. What do you think?

Humorous “An amusing or humorous moment caught in the image.”

humorous

Do you find this amusing or not? I won’t explain to you what’s happening, because I can’t explain to the judges.

Abstract “Contains a design of patterns or shapes where the subject matter is not evident.”

silo tunnel Is this pretty obvious or not?

Artistic “A photo that has been altered using digital editing software or post printing.”

artistic

I combined three images into one in this photo.


And that’s all I have in the photo category! I’m also probably going to enter some inchworms, maybe a graphic design piece, and an elephant I sewed.

what is your favorite of all of my photos? 

do you think any of the last four photos would work?

Baby Bunnies (Again)

I need to work on my titles.

It’s time for more pictures of the baby bunnies! This time I’ll be posting pictures of the other three rabbits besides Basil.

Garden Photography

I recently went out to the garden to take some pictures of the gorgeous zinnias we planted, but I decided to take pictures of the other ripening produce as well. Continue reading “Garden Photography”

WordCrafters 3 Chapter 3

Hello everyone!

I hardly ever post writing stuff on my blog anymore. I’m not a huge writer, but sometimes it can be fun. My sister started a thing called WordCrafters a while ago and the third round started last month. Yesterday I wrote the third chapter and thought I’d post it on here for you all to see. (You can see chapters 1 and 2 here.) Continue reading “WordCrafters 3 Chapter 3”

Basil the Bunny {Three Weeks Old}

The baby bunnies have grown much in size and in fluff over the past couple weeks. They’ve also gotten a lot more curious. And we’ve named them all! The black one is Mulberry (named by Carmen), the white and black one is Herbert Nininger (named by Jeff), the brown and white one is Ginger (named by Allison), and mine is Basil.

At Assateague

Hello! We are currently at Assateague in our ‘beach house’. It’s not exactly on the beach, but it’s close and quaint, so I guess it fits the title. 🙂

We arrived here Monday night, so we didn’t do much the first day. About a half an hour before we got here, there was a big storm and we pulled over into a parking lot to wait it out a bit. That’s about as exciting as the first day of vacation got. 😛

Off to Assateague

This coming Monday my family is going to Assiteugue and Chincoteague Island. I won’t be gone long, just six days, so there isn’t really a need to tell you all, but I wanted to make a post anyway.  Continue reading “Off to Assateague”

Baby Bunnies

As you probably could tell from the title, we have baby bunnies now! Our rabbit Willow just had four tiny babies on Monday. It’s been over half a year since we’ve had baby bunnies, and almost a year since we’ve had some that survived, so I’m quite happy that we have more bundles of fuzz! (Although they don’t have terribly much fuzz at the moment.)

Thus Ends May

Wow. It’s already June? 2017 is already half-way done? Well, hooray for summer break! School ended for me in the beginning of May, but I’m still finishing up Math. (Ugh.) Also, it’s finally getting warmer! The temperature got past eighty degrees several times in May.

The Diary of Clementine {Final Entry}

Hello, everyone! I’m here with another entry from Clementine. But you’ll have to wait until the end of her entry to see why it’s the final one. 😛

Blossoms

Like you probably already know from the title, today I have some pictures of flowers that I took a few days ago. The lighting was kinda harsh for some of these pictures, but I think most of them turned out well.
