Photos I’ve Been Taking – June Edition

I guess one could technically argue that this isn’t the “June edition” as all of these photos were taken in May. Either way, June edition it is because it is in June that I am sharing them!

There was a decided theme to my photos for this month’s post. It was totally unintentional but it seems appropriate for the season. Flowers always make it feel like spring. Although it has been feeling an awful lot like summer lately, we just aren’t quite there yet.

And without further ado. . .

Spring Tulips at Victoria Park
Tulips at Victoria Park – I love these colours!
Lilacs!
Lilacs! – Seeing these and smelling them really made it finally feel like spring when I took this photo in early May

These first two photos were taken with my (now lost) HTC smartphone and were edited on my phone as well using some simple filters. I think these photos help to prove that you don’t need to have a fancy camera to take good photos. I am pretty proud of these.

These following photos were taken on my outing to the London Civic Gardens I wrote about recently. I took these with my Nikon D3100. I took easily 80-100 photos that day, and it was VERY difficult to narrow it down to just a few. I managed to narrow it down to these five though:

Pink Flower
Pink Flower – Not sure what kind of flower this is, but I love the colour!
Star Flower
Again, I’m no good with flower varieties, but this one I have liked since I was a kid…
Periwinkle Blue
Such a vibrant periwinkle blue!
Note Tree
Note Tree – A well-used and apparently well-loved tree!
Water Droplets
Water Droplets – Probably my favourite photo of the day!

These photos were watermarked and touched up slightly in Photoshop. I am still very much in the learning stages with manual mode on my camera and as a result, I had minor issues with exposure that needed some fixing. I can’t do much of anything yet in Photoshop aside from these minor fixes. As my camera skills improve, I am sure my editing skills will improve as well! After all, I do have a pretty great teacher.

Well folks, until next month then, when I plan to have many more photos to share!
