Ivy Climb

A product of a walk to a friend's. One of those gigs where you get all into the exuberant photographer's pose with the crouching and the muttering and the camera constantly connected to your face. This is one of my dad's favorite concept with trees - go see his page. Link at the top of the page.

Paper Birch

I've been taking lots of walks lately because my good friends Emily and Hannah live about ten to fifteen minutes down a nearby road. Emily is my best friend from Field Hockey and also my zombie killing accomplice. (We always play Left For Dead at her house.) Hannah is a musical genius and one of my bandmates. I've taken my camera for these walks because there are plenty of oppourtunities for macro work. I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. It has a great macro function and I really recommend it for anyone. It's a little heavy because it's made of metal, but all the better for me. I'm a menace to all things electrical, especially headphones.
This is a Paper Birch tree. Its bark splits every year in the winter. They're really pretty up close, but from a distance they just look like they're moulting pitifully.
Sorry for the delay. I have half days at school this week, so I'll get back into the posting groove.

Forgive Me

For the delay with new photos. This week at school had been particularly rough and Midterm Exams are coming up, if you know what I mean. I just haven't had any free time. New pics coming up really really really soon.

In Miniature

On a trip to Old Town Ellicott City, I discovered this miniature deity. She was placed on the table outside of a Gypsy Palm Readings and Fortune Telling shop, along with a spare Crystal Ball and some decorative, potted plants.
Macro Photography is my second love, after Animal Photography. Expect to see lots of it.

I returned to Elk River Falls yesterday, and who should appear but Jodie, the stray! He has a very handsome trotting gait and makes his way towards you like he has a purpose, but has a very aloof additude. He allowed me to pet him many times, and even ate cheese out of my hand. When I started humming a song, his ears picked up and he came trotting right up to me, sticking his nose in my face. I doubt he has a person, but there are surely plenty of scraps to be had from nearby trash bins.
