Photos from Home

While I'm awake, I figured I would double post (omgz!) and share some photos that I took Thursday. I passed these sights when I was riding my bike, made it home, grabbed my camera, then pedaled back. The day was hot but too glorious to pass up a photo shoot. Sometimes I take for granted how beautiful it is where I live.

I adored this giant bumble bee because it seemed to be lolling about the pollen.  Us, the neighbors and many others have these bushes around their yards (I'm blanking on the name of the flower, of course).
 
 
 
 
As I was climbing back onto my bike to head to my next destination, a man was pulling into the driveway at this field and asked me if I was lost.  I smiled sweetly and replied, "Nope!  Just taking pictures of the hay bales."  He nodded skeptically then continued onward.  Hey, why not?  There's something about their spiraling textural madness and shimmering gold straws that I could not pass up.
 
 

Yup, I really am loving my camera.  Looking around, what's your favorite part about home?

I'm loving all these gorgeous pictures - you're doing so well with your camera!
I also love that you stopped to take those gorgeous pictures of the hay bales and didn't care what anyone thought! Sometimes I don't take out my camera to take pictures, and later regret it - I need to be less concerned about people giving me funny looks/wondering what I'm up to because I miss so many opportunities!

As for your last post, I am totally guilty of spending WAY too much late night time on the internet too, haha. But ah, all of those (free!) concerts look like so much fun. Especially getting to see all of the crazy bearded people, hehehe.

And all of these photos are so pretty! And awesome hay bales. :D I'd totally stop and take pictures of them too.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's enamored by hay bales. Thank you.
