I intended to do some painting this past weekend. I have this wonderful bench I bought from a friend:
But the weather didn't cooperate at all as it rained the entire weekend! I didn't mind really - it was very relaxing - and I was able to decorate for Halloween too.
First up was flipping my double-sided sign over and adding a bow to the top:
Then I redid the entryway table. I added my ceramic pumpkin and crow, along with a clock about to strike midnight, the pumpkin with mice, a flameless candle and crow plate;
Then I started playing with my camera. I learned some really cool techniques this past week:
Then I focused on the clock and zoomed while firing the shutter. Can you see the large clock shadow?
I've really enjoyed the photography class - the teacher is so nice and very informative! I am finally feeling comfortable using my camera plus I've learned those fun techniques. :o)
Outside, during a lull in the rain, I got some nice photos.
Acorns on the driveway:
American Beautyberry bushes with their pretty berries:
Had fun photographing the raindrops dripping off:
The lantana is still in full bloom:
More raindrops on these pretty yellow wildflowers:
Loads of mushrooms everywhere - most were white but I found these red ones peeking out:
The surprise lilies heavy from the rain:
And I managed to get a good sunburst picture through the trees:
The dogs loved the pond having water in it again:
Time to head back to the house:
I enjoyed the rain and playing with my camera. It was a relaxing weekend and those are always nice!
Have a wonderful week!
