86/366 – Biker

My boyfriend is finally here visiting. After being apart for 4 months (and the last time I saw him I was dealing with dry sockets) it is so incredibly wonderful to be together again.
My 366 may be a bit lame this week since I will be spending it with him, so apologies in advance.

71/365 – Tiger Lily

*Monday, August 8 – Stillwater, Minnesota

Monday was completely dedicated to editing pictures and getting caught up (which I am now!). That is pretty much all I did starting at 10:00 am or so. By the time evening rolled around I didn’t much feel like taking a picture, so I just wandered around my mom’s absolutely incredible garden.

The picture at hand is of a tiger lily that was just about done blooming. Tiger Lilies are some of my favorite flowers ever. They are so stunning and dramatic, so of course I had to use it as my 365. I used a technique called “freelensing” for this, which means I detach my lens from my camera and move it at different angles (while holding it close to the camera body still) to get some interesting things going on with the plane of focus.
