A thousand words

I like to take photos but I am by no means a photographer. I’ve never invested the time to learn about apertures, white balance, or shutter speeds – but I like photos and so I joined a May photo challenge on craftsy.com. It’s one of those “take a photo every day for a month” things with a list of daily topics.
The first three days were “up close”, “from afar”, and “handcrafted”. I really had to think on that last one, because my immediate thought was to take a pic of my knitting! But since the whole point is to make me think differently about taking pictures, I went with a couple of old wooden boats. Here are my first three pics:

The 4th was “moon” and I wasn’t able to find anything… It was cloudy and no other inspiration struck – so I’m going to keep my eye out and fill that one in later.  Today was “sun”, and on my morning commute there was a beautiful sunbreak that I was able to capture from the train.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
