Fine Art

It’s finals week. Which really means that I should be studying for my 3 remaining finals. I am going to call this a study break, and blog some photos. All this sunshine outside (in Vancouver, in DECEMBER!!!) is making me sad that I’m cooped up indoors studying. Before any of you suggest that I take my studying outside, I’d like to point out that the weather is below 0C (that’s < 32F). Haha. So I’ve resorted to going through my photos from earlier this year (mainly spring and summer). Looking at them makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Plus, since I didn’t start blogging until June or so, these are still considered ‘new’ images!

Daisies. From the summer time. My first time using textures… (the added bokeh is a texture)

I’m not quite sure what this red flower is, but I also played with textures here; it’s pretty fun….

Tulips… My family went to this tulip garden/farm in Washington this spring. This was taken with my old D40X, which did NOT autofocus with my Nikkor 85mm f/1.4. Yes, these were shot using manual focus…

More tulips. More manual-focusing.

Shot in the summer time. Some friends and I tried to go photograph birds in this bird sanctuary. The closest we got were these crows…

Fresh strawberries 🙂 Yum. (Pier 39 in San Francisco)

This must’ve been from early spring… I can’t even remember. This is in my yard…

You may have noticed that it’s not chronological, because we’re back in spring! <3 I love cherry blossoms, and probably took 40231340 photos of them in the spring. Which I consider a feat, since it was all manual-focus. 😀

In this following photo, I dare you to spy a falling petal. (This is 100% luck. Not planned at all).

This photo is my current desktop photo. I love the warmness it brings…

Ok. Study break over. Must learn about cell cycle, stem cells and immunology. Oh, and metabolism. Whoopee.

  1. Love, love, love these! I think the red flower is a poppy and it was one of my faves. Also really love the one that has just buds on branches coming out of the right side of the image. It’s great to see spring in mid December!

  2. These were so great to look through as it’s snowy and blustery here today. The shot with the bird in the tree is probably my favourite and the cherry blossoms. Thanks so much for sharing these 🙂

  3. Oh my GOODNESS. Those are utter perfection!!!! I’m so in love :). I’m so sad we don’t have pretty plants in Las Vegas :(. Just tumbleweeds. 🙂

  4. The red flower is a poppy. it’s amazing what you could capture and the post-processing is amazing! Loved this post, so delicate and fresh and optimistic! 😀

  5. Ooooh a fellow Nikonian??? Nice! 🙂 Love the pink tulip, the crow shot is MY FAVORITE and I love the first cherry blossom shot. Gorgeous photos! (PS: Thanks for the C to F conversion hahaha!!)

  6. Hi fellow [B] Schooler (and fellow Canadian, I hail from Calgary even though I live in the states). Thanks for commenting on my blog. I have to say, I am so in love with your website! It’s warm fuzziness! I have wanted a blog site for like, ever, but can’t afford the upgrade quite yet. Your images are awesome, you have some serious talent! I so love Vancouver, I am also jealous that you live there. I also have an iPhone, and yes, I’m in love with it too. lol. I’ve added your site to my favorites, can’t wait to see what you come up with during the games here very soon!! (And yes, I’m jealous that you live there during the games, I was 6 when the games were in Calgary and so I don’t remember crap. lol)


  7. I want to eat your strawberries! I love your focus choice for the first cherry blossom photo, I love everything about that photo. I hope to distract you from your studying so you fail and have to finally realize your true fate!

  8. As I kept scrolling down, I kept seeing more I wanted to call favourites. I really, really like the shots of the tulips though – and the cherry blossoms are beautiful! Can’t wait for those days again 🙂 Beautiful Sherry!
