Usually I like to tie my pictures together somehow, but I've been doing such random shooting recently in an effort to practice using my new speedlight and absorb what I'm learning in my photography class. Really it is good to expand my repertoire...really I have more in my life than Sunflower...but I do so like to match! Hopefully the real artists that visit my site are a little more accepting of an eclectic mix. Flexibility, flexibility, flexibility...some day I'll get it.
Then, of course, I do love playing with photos! I probably have enough photos to edit I could just stop taking pictures for the winter, but what would be the fun in that? In the meantime, I did finally have a chance to play with textures because textures are fun!
The birds did stay really still at times and let me get awfully close to them, making for a few sweet shots.
