I had some roses at home that my son gave me the other day. He wanted me to keep them "forever". I explain they wouldn't last that long. So I decided to get my camera with a macro lens and take a photo of one of them. That way we would be able to have them forever in our memories. I believe that is what I love most about photography. It allows us to keep memories that are special to us. I'm sure that in the future when my son and I look at this picture, we'll remember when he went to the store with his dad and brought roses for me. That was very special!
Since my kids were home today, we decided to go for a nature walk which they enjoy very much. While the kids brought binoculars and a toy camera. I decided to bring my camera. Bringing this thing with us gave us the opportunity to appreciate even more our surroundings. We looked for details and interesting things along the way. We made several stops to take pictures of things that caught our eyes. This is my favorite picture of the day. I love how the light hits the plant and brings all that texture and color to life.
It's been a while since we posted a daily picture. I thought this picture that I took yesterday would be a nice one for a come back to our blog. I took it yesterday while we bbq. I was glad to have the camera with me. We try to bring it out as often as possible. You never know when an opportunity comes out.

One of the fun things of photographing outdoors in spring is that we find lots of opportunities to take pictures of bugs and flowers in bloom. You don't have to go far to find interesting subjects to photograph. Any park, playground or backyard would do it. You just need to look very closely. Use a macro lens or extension tubes to very close to these tiny animals.
