On the first day of summer I photographed a bunny at the bottom of my field before it ran into the shrubs and raspberry bushes.
Bunny I had good intentions of loving.
I left the area for five minutes or so to get my tripod and walk back up with my parents.
When we walked back up to the area, my dad spotted a hawk crouched in the mowed field.
The hawk hiding something beneath it.
I immediately thought, “The bunny!”
I walked back over to the area, without phasing the hawk one bit.
Then, it bent it’s head down taking a tear out of the sweet little bunny!
It spread it's wings.
And carried the bunny away.
I couldn’t help but feel that it was my fault the bunny got eaten.
But then again, I couldn’t have intervened. That, in itself, is disrespectful to nature.
Time and time again, growing up with animals, it’s just part of nature and the “circle of life.”

The first sunset of summer on the longest day of the year.
Last night’s sunset wasn’t particularly spectacular, but I took a few photos anyways. Nearing the sun’s completion over the hills of the Valley, I snapped two exposures, I’m actually quite fond of. These two pictures of roses in my parent’s garden reminds me of the tones of Rossetti’s paintings. They were taken with on my DSLR with a slow film speed, low F-stop, and a shutter speed of around a second.
Probably the most fragrant rose in my parent's garden.
A pretty busy last few days, unfortunately, can mean less cool photos.

There's nothing like starting the morning with a kitten who thinks she's a princess.
Usually when it rains, me and every other photographer it seems takes photos of the rain drops as the subject matter. Not wanting to make this cliché photo mistake, something sparked inside of me to use the rain drops as a texturing tool rather than the subject matter.
No background bokeh for these rain drops.
I was sitting at my family’s computer, which involves a lot of waiting due to our dial-up connection. the sun was setting and I turned to the window in which it leaked in and hit me in the face.
In one window pane, remarkably, the pane that the sun rays were shining through was covered in glistening rain drops. Then, the spark came! Photo of the day!
But, of course, I had to get this classic shot.
Ran to get my camera, threw the rain drops out of focus, the fence in focus, and snapped away.
This further inspired me to go outside and take more photographs while my email waited to load, thus, today, I bring you a new, beautiful, and hopefully not cliché photo slideshow.

This photo isn't necessarily about what's the focus of the frame.
