We had our first big spring thunderstorm tonight.
So I went out and tried to catch a few shots.
I really wanted to get a good lightning shot
(which I discovered is VERY difficult to do), but
several of these others are pretty good too.

From the Farm

These two pictures are from my parents' farm. I took them
a few weeks ago, and played around with the Picasa
editing program. The tree just went from color to black and white,
but the old, iron wheels went from color to sepia, and I added film grain.

Last Class

On Monday night, during my last photography class,
we went downtown to Court Ave. to shoot some pictures.
Below are just a few of the shots I took.
I am so glad I took this class. I know I still have
TONS to learn, but I also know I learned a lot!!

Gray's Lake

Today we had beautiful spring weather here, so I went down to Gray's Lake to take a few shots.
I hope you enjoy them.

April Blizzard

Today we had an early April snowstorm. Yeah. Not exactly my idea of spring, but...This is Iowa.

It was pretty windy, and the snowflakes were the really big, wet flakes that stick to almost everything.

Of course, there isn't much you can do but hang out inside on a day like this.

Although, Paisley had the best idea of all...nap time.

Photo class

So, in my photography class last Monday, we were supposed to be working on capturing "movement" in our pictures. We were trying to take pictures of the flag waving in the wind, but I was distracted by the rays of sun coming through the clouds in the background. I liked
taking pictures of those much better than the waving flag.
