It is pretty amazing how many photos it took before I figured out how to capture the lens flare AND keep the exposure light enough to see the leaves. I’d like to see it a little brighter still, but love the beautiful golden color + light. I’m a-lernin.
Can We Come In?
They are not allowed in the bedroom, but they like to peek around the corner. And before you tell me I’m cruel, they’re not exactly abused. They sleep in the house all day and get two walks a day.
Our house is dim, and we have old light fixtures that barely give off enough light to see. I had to crank up the ISO for this, and it got a little too grainy. It’s still cute, though.
Window to a Dirty Truth
Or roof. It’s the skylight in our house. It took me quite a few shots to get this right, I wanted a balance of total black in the shadows and enough clarity to see the texture of the wall.

I decided this every single day shit was a little too much with a job and a half already. So, I am not going to worry too much about whether I get a shot every single day. I will just do as well as I can. I have been shooting at least every other day, which is way more than I started out with. So, yeah, not going to beat myself up about it too hard.
