« more woods photography, but colder this time »

so one of my goals this year was to do more photography. to my dismay, there are not many interesting things to photograph around my house.

i was planning on walking around the backyard to see what i could find, but i ended up at my creek again taking pictures of the water (which this time was actually the title of a really annoying and overplayed disney movie about a girl who somehow resurrects her sister with a hug).

silly me had the camera set for indoor photography which i didn’t notice until i had already taken all my goshdang pictures. so all of these will have more a blueish tint to them, but it’s not too bad.

anyways, i hope you guys enjoy looking at more of my pictures :))
[all pictures belong to me]

there’s a bush at the corner of our house that had little icicles hanging off the tips of the leaves :)) the picture above looks super edited but i actually left it the way it was.

i took a towel out with me a tried a couple pictures laying on the ground. i liked how this one turned out :D

at this point, everyone should understand my intro. yes, the creek was frozen XD

it was cool taking close-ups and seeing how the water looked in them.

around this time, i was quite tired of taking pictures from rocks and such, so i decided to test the strength of the ice by dropping huge rocks on it from heights. turns out, it was actually pretty THICC in parts.

here’s a picture of me being a dumb nut for proof.

IMG_5909.JPG
i got up the courage to lay my towel down and try and get some cool pictures, and i would say it kinda worked. at this point, the ice started making very scary noises. but, being the dumb nut i am, instead of getting off i decided to hop up and down to test its strength again.

no i was not putting myself or a $800 camera at risk of getting soaked, i don’t know what you’re talking about.

it was about 30 degrees outside with wind, and with my tendency to be cold ALL THE TIME i was quite numb.

that’s all i’ve got for now :))

i’m not super great at photography, but i just really enjoy it and this is the only place i can get people to look at my pictures against their will. so naturally i’m going to post them here.

let's chat!

while your down in the comments, how about you drop me some questions for me next q&a? if you do that, your questions will be featured in my part three and you’ll also get a shoutout/link to your blog.

  3. these are really cool, mckenna! i kinda wish it got super cold where i live so that i could take cool (pun intended) icy-water pictures, but it’s really hot in australia right now. :p

    also, those eyes are amazing! keep up the wonderful art-sy work. :)

    1. thank you! ooh, Australia! i wanted to live there so bad when i was little. i’m sure it does suck being hot all the time, but cold weather isn’t always fun either :P

      thank you!! :))

  4. I truly enjoyed your photography! Even more, I enjoyed your honest feelings about you skill and style of shooting pictures! Self questioning and inwardly challenging will make you push yourself beyond boring and stale photos. I too keep photos others would have deleted because they allow me to see the “art” of a picture that was not perfect. I believe you will flourish in you photography.
