The snow has finally melted 134/365

It took 8 clicks to get the image I wanted and here it is. It's underneath a huge flower pot in the park and as the ice has melted it was dripping.
It's been a wonder two days here - 50 & 55 degree temps and sunny!
Yes Spring!!!

I read a book today called "How to Photograph Your Life, capturing everyday moments with your camera and your Heart" by Nick Kelsh

It's a very basic photography book, for beginners and Hobiest's. I highly recommend it for anyone learning. Some chapters were refreshers a few were nice challenges. Like these two pictures here.

"Appreciate the effect light is having on your feelings now and how it will affect what - and when - you photograph in the future. Now apply a similar experiment to photographing a house. Take one picture at noon and another at that moment in the evening when the interior lights on the house and the background sky are balanced.

It's the difference between a real estate ad and a photograph of a warm, inviting home." pg78
Camera on tri-pod first image taken at 5p.m. last image taken at 7:30p.m.
I took pictures every 30 minutes.

This is the side of our home. The grapevines,the glass structure on the viewers left is a green house, the large window is our dinning room, directly under that is our basement/laundry room, the stairs take you to my studio. I tied the curtains open today to let the sun shine in. You can almost see the kitchen in the night picture.

There are two other challenges I will be trying in the near future.

I love your water drop, excellent! I just read your note about your hubby's cast ironware too. It's good stuff!...and it's funny I mentioned food photography as an interest, and you have that beautiful chocolate strawberry, that is looking so scrumptious! Nice.....
