Taking photos in Woodward Park in Tulsa is one of my favorite things to do. I just lose myself in snapping photo after photo.
And I’m not just looking for pretty flowers. I like texture. And layers. I like how one tree looks in front of another.
What I Like To Take Photos Of:
Shadows, impressions of trees reflected in bodies of water. The silhouette of one thing against something else.
I love to photograph anything in nature.
Also, I like to go out to the countryside and take photos of barns and farm animals. And sadly, I haven’t done that in a long time.
I just hold my camera and keep turning and snapping photos one right after another, never knowing really if I captured something good until I get home and download them to this laptop.
Yesterday morning I nearly scared myself half to death because I dropped my camera. With my breath held, I picked it up to see if it was still working.
I just bought this one last year. And the one before that I had about 8-9 years. I like Canons. Remember I was saving the other camera when I broke both sides of my ankle in 2012.
It was fine. I took 235 photos at the park yesterday. In about an hour’s time.
I wanted to go on over to nearby Swan Lake, as I typically do. But I was worn out by that time and went home. It was getting pretty hot too.
So here we are on the cusp of a holiday weekend. I don’t know about you. But I have no plans. Just staying in with the pet babies and trying to keep cool. Summer is upon us.
I once had a big pond with probably at least a dozen koi in it. It came with the house I had at the time. They were gorgeous. I so love to watch these at Woodward Park.
For two days the tornado siren went off. Then yesterday it was a new siren I’d never heard before. It was the flood siren. Lots of places are flooded around here.
As you know we’ve had multiple problems at this complex with mature trees breaking up the cement and going underneath apartments.
The basil I dug out of the cement crack looked pitiful for a few days. But now it’s looking pretty good.
I’ll be surprised to see if even more plants come from some freaky place and wind up growing in the crack. They sure are surprise plants.
Nothing real exciting today. I’m tired from my little excursion this morning. Have a nice holiday weekend!
