Monochrome Monday: Week 2

Week two of monochrome monday is here and week 8 of Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness has past and I continue to be inspired and amazed by the talent of the bloggers’ work that is displayed in these posts. It’s so hard to pick favorites, but these week I really liked Leanne’s photo of an old abandoned car at a place called Pink Lakes. To read more about it, visit her blog!

Monochrome Monday: Week 1

After being inspired by the growing weekly challenge called “Monochrome Madness” started by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky, I’ve decided to create my own post on Mondays showing my contribution to the upcoming Monochrome Madness post as well as my favorite(s) from last week’s Monochrome Madness.

My favorite from last week’s post is Laura Macky’s submission. I love macro photography and I love taking pictures of flowers as well so this one caught my eye (it also helped that it is featured larger on the post, but wasn’t why I chose it). I’m curious as to what color the flower originally was, but I like how Laura chose to not do straight black-and-white but to give it a somewhat sepia tone.

Flower Friday

I would love to commit to doing “Flower Friday” every week, but I know winter will come eventually, so from now on I will try to put together a post with a common theme that has a compilation of macro pictures. This week just happens to be flowers (and I like alliteration). These pictures were all taken with my new camera this week on Liberty University’s campus. This one would probably be my favorite this week:

I love the sunshine in this picture and the texture it creates. These are the only red flowers I've really seen on campus so far.

It finally looks like Spring and as I walk around campus I just love taking pictures of all the blossoming trees on campus. I hope you enjoy the way these look as well!

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 5)

This past week did not afford to many opportunities for iPhone photography so here is what I have for you this week. The other day I was standing outside my girlfriend’s dorm and like the way the sun was shining through the trees so I whipped out my phone and got this shot. Enjoy!

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 4)

Once again, spring flowers have made the photo of the week! This time, we have daffodils that were in Washington, DC behind the botanical garden. Most of the daffodils I’ve seen this season have been all yellow, so I had to get some pictures of these daffodils with orange centers. I’m so grateful for spring and the new beauty it brings to nature, God’s creation.
