“Lonely Lifetower”

I was cruising down PCH earlier and it was so pretty out! However the lighting was at 12pm so as you know – the worst time to shoot pictures! But I had to be somewhere by 1:00pm…. I liked this lighthouse… it was neon green! 🙂

“Angry Birds”

So my sister Cris, my nieces, my little H and I went to the park where we grew up at (Downey) and we are sitting quietly by the lake watching the duckies and ALL of a sudden this SWARM of birds come whisping around our head, over the lake, around the tree, up to the sun, and around back towards our heads again. They did this three times so I got a series of birds flying around the lake. I like the sun one.

“A Precious Moment”

I was planning on a specific thing for today but when we got to uncle Adrian’s house we walked to the lake to watch the duckies. This is the sweetest thing in the whole world! He’s so good with her and she loves him so much!!!! It had to be today’s picture.

“Neon Food Coloring is FUN!”

Didn’t know what to do for my photo today. I was staring at my bedroom floor where lie empty water bottles that didn’t make it to the recycle. I was playing with food coloring yesterday so that hit in my mind and here we are. Its not exactly what I wanted but time was running out and Im super tired.
Speedlite 580EXII was lit under and up behind the water bottles against a white foam board. Another white foam board is under it with a piece of plexiglass.

“The dolphin appeared”

High Speed Sync – Stopping water can make amazing things appear… can you find the dolphin?

Used a Speedlite 580EX-II off camera slightly to the left with a blue gel. Two lights on either side of the white plate slightly behind it and white foam board behind. I added pinkish purple food coloring in the water because the water clear color was coming out too light. If I tweaked the contrast a bit, you could see it, but I actually liked how the food coloring came out!

I zoomed into this photo and it looks like a dolphin is coming out of the water… I think its the coolest thing in the world!!! I couldn’t do that if I TRIED!
