My New Hobby

This is Julia by the way. Just recently I found out that I am totally in love with nature! Well I've always loved it but now I go outside almost everyday just to look around and explore. But that's not my new hobby. My new hobby is photography! I love it, and I'm actually good at it And all of these pictures are just of our backyard! Anyway, here are a few that I took a few days ago. Enjoy! And please comment.


This was a nest that I found in the cornfield. It's a killdeer nest. (That's a type of bird, just in case you don't know...haha) Anyway, just thought is was cool.


This one is my favorite!


Isn't this cloud gorgeous?!










Isn't the sky just amazing?!

Julia, you SO have an eye for it! Keep it up! Take as many classes as you can! I took photography in high school several times, and won an award for one of my photos, I was into nature photography too. (I was a complete nature freak anyway) I'm terrible at photography people. :) Take classes, and keep practicing! Also, look at LOTS of books, check out every book on outdoor photography in your local library, they are SOOOO helpful! (I do that with whatever art medium I am currently into, since it's always changing with me) Your home is so beautiful Julia, you could probably spend the next year JUST taking pics of all the little details around your home, nature is amazing! Well, good luck, and keep posting your favorites for us to comment on! :)
