Around the Farm, VII

aria-photo-6 (2)

Time for the seventh episode of Around the Farm! For those of you who are new (because my last episode was June 2018), I basically go around the farm, take pictures, and then post them on my blog. :) They’re just fun ways to document what’s going on or such. You can visit the tag which has all the posts here. :) You can see how my photography has improved, especially since I first started posting these in May of 2016. Wow. More has changed than just my photography.

Last Saturday was a really lovely day! It’d started out all cloudy, but the clouds broke way for sunshine and warmth. I took a walk, and then went back home for my camera and drove up to the orchard because ONE OF THE TREES WAS IN BLOOM. I wanted to take a picture for my business social media accounts, so I got my cousin to get one of me and the one blooming tree.


He actually got a couple really good ones, hence the new profile picture. Also GUYS. Look how green my eyes are! I didn’t even alter the color or enhance them all that much!


A few of these pictures are Christian’s, by the way.


The trees are still just budding, and I can’t wait until the entire orchard’s in bloom!



I took out the macro lens Allison gave me for my birthday and tried very hard…but I’m really quite bad at macro photography. IT IS SO HARD TO FOCUS, YOU GUYS.

      Awww, thanks! Welp, the short answer is that we don’t need her; what we really need is another full-size.

    Great job on these! I’ve got my favorite little category of photography–portrait, events, and families, and I practically never branch out to nature. I really should do more of it this Spring. 😉 Do you recommend the macro extension kit? I’ve thought about purchasing that. Great job on those photos, they are stunning! And I’d love Baybel, but I don’t think my parents would, haha, so I’ll pass sadly. 😉
