I just started this project and I’m already behind on posting about it. But don’t worry, I’m caught up in real life. And I also have a really cool instax photo album to put them all in! I’ll post more about that when it starts getting filled up.
NOT PICTURED: Zebras.
Yep, there are exotic animals about 1 mile from my house. Too bad it was too dark by the time I took this picture.
Apparently, I have this really cool habit of taking pictures at sunset, which for this camera means that part of it is dark. In person, it turns out alright but when I photograph it for my blog posts, it ends up looking like it has no detail. I took this picture a few weeks ago on one of the back roads by my house, I LOVED the sunset that night, so I took a drive.
This is easily one of my favorite photos that I have taken using this camera. I really like passenger seat rear view mirror shots with the sunset in the background. Are you noticing a trend?
I told you it was coming.
After some pretty intense repotting of many plants (and being on my to-do list for a good six months), it’s finally done and looking oh-so spiffy. I mean, everything is in the middle of the pot again and all the over grown-ness is no more!
They are all growing like weeds, thanks to the new soil I put in the pots. Which means I’m probably going to be repotting again soon. And I found out that I’m supposed to be using fertilizer more regularly, so we’ll see what happens.
I also got a neat new plant toy for my birthday from Kevin. It is probably one of the most unique devices and it’s one of those you-don’t-know-you-need-it-until-you-have-it, kinda things.
It’s called a flower power and it helps me know how often to water, fertilize, put in the sun, etc. I chose a low-maintenance plant at first just to try it out and I’m totally loving it! This little guy just sends info to my phone and then it puts commands into my to-do list so that I know if it’s time to water or fertilize! This is going to come in handy next year when I am planting veggies! The app shows your plant’s stats in real time, so you can see the water decreasing as the time from the last water increases. That way, you can anticipate a watering time even if you won’t be home a few days. The only downside is that the Bluetooth connection can only be made when you are within a certain range, which means that you cannot get updates on your plant when you aren’t at home. Even though this is a fairly new product, I would totally recommend it to the experienced planter and the novice and with new updates all the time, it just keeps getting better!
Recently, my friend Emilia showed me this really awesome way to share my photography portfolio. I used a website called WiX.com and in a few easy steps, I had my brand new page up and running. There were a ton of different layouts to choose from, but I really wanted to keep it plain so that I could make my photography the focus and not have it too cluttered with other things!
Here are a couple of screen shots from the page!
