Etcetera #20: Bunnies, Bread, Fireworks, & a Very Disgruntled Toad

Hello friends!

Today I have a fun mishmash of photos for you from recent (and not-so-recent) adventures. We have some marvelous sunsets, adorable pets, pictures from a wedding I got to photograph, and more.

I hope this adds some joy to your day! (Especially the toad part.)

A Family Fishing Trip

Hello friends!

My grandparents recently took our family on a fun adventure – a charter fishing day trip! It was insanely hot and thus exhausting, but other than that it was a great time. 😀 I of course took quite a few pictures and wanted to make a post to share them with you guys.

Read on for pictures of my family being sailors for a day, a collection of the fish we caught, and a pretty sunset over the water.

Etcetera #15 {Doughnut Making, a Spring Festival, and Old Hotels}

Hello, my friends!

Get ready for a LOT of pictures today because I haven’t done one of these miscellaneous photography posts in five months! I still haven’t shared small adventures from way back in December, like making doughnuts and going on a rather spontaneous road-trip. Not to mention more recent events like a spring festival our friends put on with barn dancing and competitions and lots of fun memories. And, of course, plenty of pretty nature and landscape photos as usual. 🙂

Enjoy this mixed-up collections of moments from the past half year!

Hidden Treasures & Airplane Skies {a Golden Hour Walk}

Hello, my friends!

I have more golden hour pictures for you! While on a walk the other evening, I got in that photographing mood where I try and make pretty pictures out of the most random or unphotogenic things. It was great. 😀 So today I present you with a selection of dramatic thorns, color treasure hunts, airplane clouds, and candles in windows.

Want to go on a walk with me? Well yay! Let’s go.

Etcetera #13 {Skyscapes, Self-Portraits, Mysterious Feathers, and Inflatable Pineapples}

Hello, dears!

I’m finally back with a collection of the random photos I’ve acquired since my last Etcetera post! 😀 Some of the pictures for today include vibrant sunsets, undignified cats, friends’ engagement photos, a baby turtle I rescued, my brother playing drums, and a large collection of paper butterflies.

I’m never quite sure what I hope to accomplish with these posts, but if you’re interested in pretty photos or hearing random bits about a farm girl’s life, mayhaps you will enjoy this scrapbooky collection. 🙂 There’s only one way to find out, isn’t there? So, onwards! To the pictures!

Explore with Me 002 | Sunset Silhouettes

Hello, dears!

It feels like I haven’t done a sunset post in AGES! Remember when I used to do them all the time? I should get back into photographing them more because ahhh! Sunsets! Enough said.

Before we start, a note: I made this series to motivate myself (and you!) to get outside even on days when it seems so much more productive and useful to stay in front of the computer. I don’t know about you, but can only stare at a screen for so long before my brain starts getting frizzy. :’D So! I shall take you with me on a walk around our farm, adding in a little twist or art/photography prompt that you can try too. 🙂

Today we’ll be looking for interesting ways to capture the colors of sunsets other than just taking a picture of the sunset itself. (Future Allison: LIKE FRED! AND AUGUSTUS!)

Ahem. Onwards!

Etcetera #9

Hello, dears!

I’m back with another etcetera post today! If you’re new here, I use these posts to combine all the “orphan photos” and mini topics that aren’t quite big enough for their own post. It’s basically a virtual scrapbook of little moments from the past two months. 🙂

Enjoy this collection of summer adventures, memorable explorations, golden hour photos, etc.!
