Photo an Hour 10/20/12

I've seen photo an hours done before, and it is something I've been wanting to try as a method of practice. It's one thing to take photos of a place or person I find interesting, and it's another to make myself take pictures of something I'm used to or have never photographed before. It's good practice in finding a way to photograph with different angles and ideas, as well as making something that may not be so interesting into something unique. Also, it's an excuse to use this amazing new 50mm f/1.4 lens...

Always the naughty bear mug!

This succulent I harvested from Arcata is mighty fine.

Simba is 15. I named her when I was 10 and really into the Lion King.

Eric and I on one of our many walks from that day. We went to Goodwill and found nothin'.

Some nice cacti peaking over a neighbor's fence.
I certainly wouldn't mind having a back yard filled with them.

Maybe I'm over using the bokeh effect this lens creates... but then again maybe there is no such thing.

I love the photo of that shrub... I love perfect symmetry. Also, I think your cat Simba has a soulmate. My boyfriend's family has a 15 year old orange cat named Nala!

Aww, if cats could write I would suggest that they be pen pals.
