Today as I was going to grab my coffee, I noticed that the trees behind the office were looking quite fallish and then I noticed the flowers I've been meaning to take pictures of for some time. So I decided to kill two birds with one stone.
These are the flowers that are planted behind our cafeteria. I have no idea what they are but I do enjoy the looks of them.
I was trying different angles with my camera. I think I like how this one turned out.
Not quite as sure about this one.
I also like how this one turned out.
Then I wandered the trails behind the office for a bit. Saw these flowers. I think I've identified them before but I don't remember what they are called.
Same with this one.
These remind me of little daisies but I know that is not what they are.
We have some pretty nice trails behind the office but for these next two shots, I decided to mess with the white balance. This picture is set with the Auto White Balance.
I think I like this one that was set to sunshine white balance better. It seems more colorful. What do you the reader thing?
A group of those flowers. I really need to find myself a decent macro lens. My friend has one that lets you get really close.
More of the mini daisies.
So after work, I decided to wander over to Lillie Park which is at the corner of Ellsworth and Platt. I was going to take the road that would lead me where the trains usually hang out, but that was closed, so I had to go down Morgan. I kind of liked the way the trees looked with the railroad tracks, so I took a picture.
As I was heading back to the car, I liked the off center shot a little more. Which do you prefer?
One more train related picture.
And then I met my friend at the park. It was kind of a walk and photography session. There are lots of cool things there to take pictures of. Like this plant.
I really liked the look of this flower, especially against the green background.
I thought the leave was pretty cool, especially with the brown around the edges.
More purple flowers.
Not sure what these are but I like the color. Sadly, they are starting to match all the other plant life.
A clover flower. I think.
I kind of liked the way the trees were in the reflection. I think I would have liked it more had the wind been a little calmer.
I'm not sure what kind of plane this but everytime I see a plane, I have to look up.
More of a shot of the reflections in the water., Almost makes an abstract piece but I think I'd like it more if the water were smoother.
I liked the pinecone.
I was trying to get a picture of this while illuminated by the sun. Not sure how well I got it.
I saw my friend taking a picture of this dandelion. I figured I would give it a shot. I definately need more of a macro lens for this type of thing.
