Where we live, we have a great view from our backyard, looking west.
That means we get to see a lot of gorgeous sunsets and beautiful night skies and dramatic cloud formations.
And many airplanes, which makes Elliora happy. She loves airplanes.
I can’t seem to stop taking photos of the sunsets and Instagramming them.
I should really get out the DSLR and take photos with it more often, though. I mean, look:
The phone pictures are pretty, but the real camera captures the light and clouds and colors so beautifully and effortlessly.
No filters necessary.
I’m still way behind on Flickring photos, which is probably why I rarely use my good camera these days. Instagramming with my phone is so easy and, well, instantly gratifying. And it doesn’t put me even farther behind.
I am determined to catch up, though. I’m almost done with May. And it’s not like I did much over the summer, or anything.* Just hung out on the deck with the girls while they played in the water, went to Hawaii and met up with Lauren, visited family and friends in North Carolina, went to Omaha for three weeks, went to a Harry Potter fan convention, moved from DC to San Diego…just the usual summer stuff.** Only a few thousand photos to catch up on.
*I’m being sarcastic here.
**Totally, totally sarcastic.
