If you were thinking that this might be a post about green tea ice cream, that won’t come until some time next week. I need some time to make it just right, and it’s almost there, but I know I can make it better.
Instead, this will be photography post. Because I’ve really been enjoying viewing the submissions to The Pioneer Woman’s Photo Assignment this week. Guess what the theme is.
I love the color green, and believe me, if “The Green Hut” had only managed to make a little more sense than the already-nonsensical “Ivory,” you might be calling me by a different name. Green also happens to be my husband’s favorite color. And as I repeatedly gasped in amazement at the incredible talent on display this week at The Pioneer Woman’s site, it also inspired me to take a quick look at my Flickr account and see if I had any old photos that featured the color green.
Here are a few of my favorites.
This one was taken using an old Canon videocamera, on my first trip to Trinidad. We visited a couple that had an orchid nursery, and all these dangling tangled up roots just fascinated me.
This was one of the first photos I took with my then-new Canon S5, less than an hour after opening the box. I ran outside to take a photo of the first thing I saw, which happened to be my neglected flower bed.
This was also taken with my still-new Canon S5. This time, I was outside at night using the full moon to test out the super-zoom capabilities of the camera. I happened to notice our lamp posts in the front yard, set my camera on the porch railing, and figured I’d test my camera’s long exposure capabilities as well. I ended up with an unplanned photo that remains one of my S5 favorites.
I’ve always loved macros. Then again, you already knew that. This was with the Raynox DCR-250 attached to a lens tube adapter on my S5.
So it this one.
I also have this thing about taking photographs from my plane seat. You might have read about that before.
This was from my last trip to the Philippines. We have such gorgeous sunrises and sunsets there, and during our four-day stay at this particular place, I woke up every single morning at dusk just to take photos by the beach.
Now, I suddenly have a hankering to go shoot everything green in my house. Except maybe for the mold on the forgotten jar of yogurt that I left in the back of the fridge.
And okay, just in case you didn’t believe me earlier when I said I was working on that green tea ice cream recipe for you, I’ll leave you with this photo.
You know I would never lie to you. Tease? Yes. Lie? Nope.
