i've always loved to take photographs, earlier this year i finally bought myself an okay digital camera. this pictures have been taken over the past few months.


this is a flower bud on an extremely large aloe plant that my parents have.


an apple blossom in my backyard, i really love this picture, except the bug right in the middle of the photo


cherry blossoms, again i get a bug in the picture


the over-grown garder filled with forget-me-nots


my dog clover


another one of clover, running though some grass in a field near my house


obviously its a bonfire


a sunset taken at the bonfire above


two of my friends at the same bonfire, i just love the way fire illuminates things


probably the most random of all, its a lamp base that just looked really interesting against my blinds

thank you for taking time to look at these photographs, any comments/criticism is welcome

Good job.  I really like your bonfire picture and the sunset. The people dancing(?) is fun to because its so random. But dont feel discouraged about getting bugs in your picture. I always go out of my way for little bees and flys. Ive spent the better part of an hour chasing this one little bee around because he wouldnt stay still for the picture.

Thanks. I think the one of the sunset is one of my favorites. The people illuminated by the bonfire were pretty much standing there (I think), their body language kind of makes it seems that they are arguing, but the one on the left is on her cell phone and the other is just gesturing to talk to the person on the phone (while holding her own phone, you can see a little bit of blue glow in the middle of the picture). I've also spent some time chasing a bee  around the yard trying to get a picture, unfortunately I didn't a picture of it.

my favorite is the sunset picture. it's the only one, compositionally speaking, that follows all the rules. you positioned the dock on the left, not the center, of the photograph, and that's what makes it art. placing the center of the interest in the center of the photo is probably the last thing anyone should ever do... even though that doesn't seem like it makes sense. next time you go to shoot a picture of anything, try moving the camera so it's not in the middle anymore. it reallly makes for a pleasing photograph. other than that, you have a really good eye!

Everyone seems to like the sunset. I use a Kodak z700.
