Untitled for Day 55 of 365 Project

While on a walk I came across this large, quite fantastic tree and it was almost completely covered in ivy. I couldn’t quite get the angle needed to really showcase the relationship between the ivy and the tree, but with this shot, I hoped to at least show how high in the tree the ivy had climbed.

“Bumper cars” for Day 49 of 365 Project

Today, we had a fun day instead of working and we went to Knott’s Berry Farm. We started the day with a scavenger hunt. Then, we had lunch at the chicken dinner restaurant. And after a short period for digestion, we went on all the rides we could fit in before the end of our day. This shot was taken while waiting in line for the bumper cars.

Taken with Top Camera using the slow shutter option and edited in Top Camera, iPhoto, and Snapseed.

“Over the bridge” for Day 48 of 365 Project

The building I work in is right across the street from the University of California, Irvine (UCI). There is a bridge that connects the center my building is located in and UCI. On the UCI, end of the bridge there is a rose garden. This shot is taken while standing in front of the rose garden facing toward my office building.

Day 46/365 Project

Untitled for Day 46 of 365 Project

There’s a neighborhood not far from where I live that is a hodge-podge of older homes in every style you can think of. I don’t know much about the neighborhood but I love it’s character. I love that every home is different from the one next to it. Some of them are really large and some more modest in size. I went for a walk through that neighborhood today and it seems I just couldn’t get the exposure right on any of my shots but I think this wild tree turned out ok. Not only is a neat looking tree, but I find the light filtering through to be lovely. Below is another shot of the same tree showing how far over the branches extend. There are actually pieces of wood and metal poles holding it up right as well.
