Week 19

Guest photographer: This picture was taken by Rob, I had to share because think its such a neat photograph of our pets. We love how Sonora is in the background relaxing but always has an eye on Socrates...

Week 15

The Saguaro blooms in the Spring. Bats that are migrating through are provided nutrition by the Saguaro blooms. This photo was taken on a hike in White Tanks State Park on the Waterfall trail.

Week 14

The tree of Arizona, the Palo Verde, turns bright yellow during the Spring. One of my favorite trees in my favorite time of year in Phoenix. This tree stands next to the road where I live.

Week 1

We spent Christmas in Indiana with Rob's family. They literally live in a log cabin in the woods. They have a beautiful property and I took advantage of some neat winter scenes outside their house one afternoon.

This photograph I converted to black and white to really highlight the detail of the spiderweb like delicacy of the frozen flower.

I found this frozen hydrangea in the snow next to their pond beautiful. Hydrangea's are one of my favorite flowers and in this winter snow it still holds a beauty.

The birds nice and plump for the winter enjoyed feasting in the bird feeder located right outside the back windows.


Rob and I just invested in our first really nice camera...a Nikon D3100. We have a mutual love of photography and hope to start learning more about photography and taking some really neat photographs. I wanted to start a blog where I could document my photography endeavors for a year...but I wanted to wait until I had a nice camera to do it with! Well, now I have the camera so I can start this blog!

I am looking forward to capturing a years worth of photography with my goal being one picture a week. I bet it'll be an interesting but challenging journey but I (think) I'm up for it! The graphic above I designed today in Adobe Photoshop specifically for this blog I am titling "Amanda's Project 52".
