Theme: Trees

week of April 25th
So, I have admittedly had a bad attitude about these themes lately. Life has been busy and I just haven't felt really motivated by the topics enough to want to make time for them. I thought about just calling it quits and forgoing the rest of the year, but I don't like to give up on things so I just couldn't do it. Today while the kids were playing in the backyard with their friends I wondered around our trees, which are one of my favorite things about our house, to try and find some interesting pictures. It was overcast, so the light wasn't doing anything inspiring and now that the trees are in full bloom there weren't any really great spring shots to be had either. But the beauty of these assignments is that it forced me to take tree pictures anyway, and what do you know, I started to have fun with it and actually was really happy with a lot of the pictures that I got!

Thanks! I bumped up the color a little, but that's it. I had my aperture really low and I loved how it came out.
