Photo 101 Day Sixteen: Treasure & Close-up

‘In the absence of a wooden chest full of gold doubloons, any object or experience that is deeply meaningful can be a treasure. Items, places, people — we all cherish something, or someone.’

On Wednesday last week, we took a little time to cherish the sunshine and each others company and this sort of occasion is like treasure to me. You may notice that someone else unexpectedly joined in the feast. Enjoy your weekend 🙂 x

‘Landscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject.’

We took an evening trip to a local pub on this gorgeous sunny afternoon. Who doesn’t love a balmy summers day. There were a few others, like us, couples enjoying a good meal and a few rays of sunshine. Families with young kids running around in cute little shirts and shorts combos whilst their sisters wore colorful dresses with bows in their hair. We came to this pub because of its remote setting among the pretty shades of green and gold. The landscape did not disappoint.

‘Observe your scene before pressing the shutter, considering how all the elements in the frame interact with one another. Make an object appear larger through a ground-level POV. Place two things side by side in an unexpected way.’

It’s back to those glorious flowers again. This time featuring my pretty ball of fluff. She sat so neatly unaware she’s a muse of mine.
