Camera Clicks – Guru Shots

Anyone else using this App? I have alot of fun playing around in this app. One of my photos was just selected for a digital photography exhibition in Melbourne Australia!

Ok. This is very cool and one day I will visit Australia. I’ve literally dreamed of this place since I was a small child. My favorite animal was a Koala.

So on to this picture. This picture is very special to me for not only what it represents but because it “says” alot.

It was taken at the Korean War Memorial in Washing, DC. I have a separate post about this part of our summer vacation.

Here is a link to Guru Shots and the photo. NO I AM NOT DOING THIS FOR ANY KIND OF COMPENSATION.

I found this amazing photo on GuruShots

Camera Clicks – Moon & Jupiter

I have this cool app that notifies me of star events. So my app told me I could see Jupiter tonight.

Here is my first attempt…

What the heck? I see spots…I clean my lense and wait for it to acclimate to the 95% humidity, Hello Florida in August!

Ok, let’s try again…

Ok so the tiny spec in this picture, that’s below the white blob of the moon and to the right, is Jupiter. Yep, I have the big lense on. How do people get such amazing pictures of the night sky?

Ok, changing a few settings…

Bam! Great picture of the moon ๐Ÿ˜ but where did Jupiter go?

I use a Nikon d3500, I just love itโฃ

I’d also love any suggestions on settings and right now, I don’t edit my pictures. I am a big fan of Ansel Adams and often think, his pictures are magnificent and he didn’t edit a damn thing, just saying…I know I am a newbie…๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Camera Clicks – Queen of the Night (Epiphyllum oxypetalum)

I am SOOO excitedโฃ I know, it’s the little things that make me happy. Flowers have always made me happy. You put some work, a lot or a little, into a plant and they show you love by producing a pretty and sometimes super fragrant blossom such as these:

There are 14 flowers on this baby! One of the unique things about this plant is the flowers only bloom once and only at night.

So I’ve been watching these grow for a couple weeks now and thankfully my husband woke me up after midnight (๐Ÿ˜ด) to tell me they were all open. I forgot to check them before I climbed into bed.

There were so many blooming that you could smell the light Honeysuckle fragrance. Nothing says “Florida” to me more than Orange Blossoms and Honeysuckle ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒž

Looks like extra parts put together, poor guy had a limp, lost one of his 2 toes.
Zebra with a Mohawk on its butt! Who knew?!
This cutie! Made his rounds picking up all the fruit, he waved at us as he wondered by.
