Ivory: In a recent post I shared a secret...I have a cat! (not exactly by choice) I received a few surprised reader comments because it is obvious if you have ever read my blog before that I love dogs, I have a dog named Willow, and I am obsessed with her. Anyway, the cat does have a few positive qualities, one of them being her beautiful white belly and paws. She's not ready for me to show her face here on the blog, and for now we'll just keep referring to her as "the cat", but I took a closeup paw/belly photo (it wasn't easy):
Picnic: Or as I call it---"Stash Picnic". I used a bunch of yarn from my stash to substitute for actual food and drink. Then I played around with some soft focus effects and got this:
Multi-layered: I absolutely love hydrangeas. This bush is out in front of my apartment building.
Heavy metal: I live close to the George Washington Bridge and I love taking photographs of it! I know it's kind of literal but it was the first thing that popped in my head when I read the assignment.
Grow: The view out of our window is one of my favorite things about our apartment. It's kind of a rare treat when you live in Manhattan, and we even get a partial river view and a sunset during certain months of the year. The photo on the left was taken in mid-April when the trees were just starting to get their leaves back. The photo on the right was taken yesterday. Same tree, same view, but now the leaves have GROWN.
Fluid: Willow is not very graceful, and is always bumping into things, but she definitely looks fluid here:
