This Saturday was my birthday. We have a habit in our family of not really doing presents as much as something special. I got a few presents. My kids got me a really pretty wind chime. I went out to lunch and ate chicken kebabs. My husband baked me a cake. My real present, however, was going to Red Butte Gardens and spending an afternoon doing some photography. I got a wide angle lens a few months ago as a YAY REMISSION present, but I’ve been too busy/sick/alive to use it. So I got the husband, and the kids, and my macro and wide angle lenses and just WENT. It was BLISS.
So, you get a sequence of photos this week from my Red Butte Gardens excursion.
As a fun (to me) side note, I have started an account on 500px to post my photos, start a portfolio, hopefully give myself somewhere I can actually send prospective clients to look at my work. If you are interested, or want to pretend to care, you can see what I have uploaded (so far) here. As a fun aside, YES YOU CAN BUY PRINTS of any of the photos on my 500px account. Just contact me for prices. I’ve had a few people suggest I start a store on Etsy for my photography, but for some reason that terrifies me. I’ll probably bite the bullet and do it eventually.
Here are the photos for this week.
I also went back and processed some photos from February. This photo was a HUGE chance, very different from my usual style, and it made me pretty terrified to post it. The more I look at it, the more I like it, so I’m shoving it here. I took this in the middle of nowhere Wyoming. I loved the color of the horse, and I loved the way the setting sun looked. So…. here you go.
