The first one is my Lily Pad Spiderweb. From the moment I took the shot, I knew that this was going to be a good one! I was out taking photos of the windchimes out by the pond in my backyard. The wind was blowing all over the place, and I couldn’t get a decent picture of those. So, as I turned to go inside, I stopped to look at the pond. And that’s when I saw it. A curled up lily pad with pond algae growing on it, so that it looked like a spiderweb. And if you know me, you know that I find beauty in all the weird places of the world. This was one of those places. I thought that it was just beautiful! I brought it in, got on the computer, and showed it to everyone, who all said, “EWW!”, well, at least my mom did. But, to this day, on DeviantART, it’s still my most popular photo, and quite big on Redbubble too.
The next is a more recent photo. It’s of my tree, Airos, when he was starting to turn color and lose leaves. I lied down underneath him, so that it almost made this weird, upside-down effect. I love it. I love weird angles, so this is of course one of my favorites. There’s not as big of a story behind this one, but that’s alright, because I still love it. Airos is a wonderful tree!
So, those are my two favorite photos of the year. I hope you all enjoyed the little backstory behind them, and, of course, I have others that I wanted to add, but, there’s just so many that I couldn’t add them all!!
