We didn't get home until late yesterday evening, which is why I'm writing about it today, but the weather was very mild and we brought Max home a new ball toss toy that was a gift from family. A video of him playing with said ball toss was promised, so there was a mild bit of obligation to go outside and try it out, which we did. Needless to say, Max loved the toy. He's a bit of a chonk, so he only lasted for about 4 or 5 tosses before he was tuckered out.
My sis soon ventured off and started taking photos of surrounding flowers, mainly daffodils - those things are everywhere right now, so seeing and photographing them was a given. I tried to get a couple pics on my phone, but decided to go get my camera since I still had my macro lens attached.
Spring is one of the best times of year to take photos outside. There are loads of blooms everywhere, the bugs come out of hibernating and the days are longer. That's actually my least favorite part about spring, the long days. I'm one of the few people that loves when it's dark out by 5 o'clock, but that is most definitely not to my advantage when I'm busy all day and want to go outside and take photos around 5 or 6 when it's pitch black.
So yeah, right now is prime photo-taking time.
I managed to get a few decent flower photos. Nothing spectacular, but decent. A bunch of little Matted Pratia are popping up all over the yard, which presented the perfect opportunity for me to flex my macro muscles. Since I'm So dangerously close to the subject I have to shoot live, which makes it difficult to stad still enough to get a photo without causing it to go out of focus. I think I managed a couple decent shots of the macroscopic flowers.
Well I suppose that's all for today, I have to be in Ironton around 4:30 today to get the car inspected. I'm the worst, I've put it off all freaking month and now I'm down to the wire. I legit only have until tomorrow to get tags. *eye roll*
