Recent Photography: Coffee Shops, Clouds, Caterpillars, and Cats

Yay! I haven’t posted in a while – I’m so glad to be back!

I haven’t done a recent photography post in a few monthsΒ (probably because they take forever to make), but I finally finished gathering all my photos together so I could post one. I’ve taken quite a few new pictures since I bought my 50mm camera lens. I hope you enjoy looking at all of them! πŸ˜€

We’ll start with this adorable dog that I saw in the Walmart parking lot last week. He kindly allowed me to photograph him while he waited for his owner. πŸ˜›

Isn’t he adorable?

Some colorful toy cars in the grocery store. πŸ™‚

I took this one right after I got 2 teeth pulled a few weeks ago. That was an interesting experience. XD

There’s this really neat coffee shop in my town, and I got a lot of photos last time we went there. They have this old bicycle out front that is so pretty!

Here are some photos I took inside the shop. πŸ™‚

This was an interesting old radio that was sitting by the window.

In the parking lot, there’s this amazing old pickup truck:

Isn’t it so cool?

Yep, I took this at Sonic. XD I wanted to get a picture of the waitress handing my mom her drink, and I succeeded. πŸ˜›

I love how the black window frame contrasts against the red bricks in this one!

I took this and the next few in the post office. It’s funny how f1.8 aperture can make almost anything look pretty and interesting!

Here are a few black-and-white pictures. πŸ˜€

My brother Abram….

And my sister Laura.

Here are a few more pictures of Laura from a recent photoshoot I did with her. πŸ™‚

Now for some kitties!

Ember loves to sleep in the flowerpot. XD

Several weeks ago, I attempted to create a blog post that turned out to be a total failure. I did get a few fun pictures, though, so I thought I’d share them anyways even though the post didn’t work out. πŸ˜›

Yep, that’s me reading with a giant panda. XD

Ahem. Moving on to horses! πŸ˜€ There are some people on our road who own a huge herd of horses, and I got to take some pictures of them the other day.

While we’re on the topic of animals, here are some adorable goats. πŸ˜›

This is Stretch, and he’s pretty much the cutest goat ever.

We have a ton of cattle egrets that follow our goats around at this time of year. I tried and failed to sneak up on them in the pasture, but I did manage to get a picture of them as they flew away, so all was not lost. πŸ˜‰


I found this little guy on a plant next to Maude’s pen. She waited impatiently for me to feed her while I ran inside and got my camera.

This was a lovely sunset we had the other night. πŸ™‚ There was a huge rainbow, too, but sadly by the time I got my camera it was gone. 😦

PUFFY CLOUDS! I took these when we were driving somewhere… I forget where. XD

Now for a few random pictures. πŸ˜€

A round, ripe pear on our pear tree…

A little green lizard on the window.

Can you find the tiny snake? πŸ˜› This little guy has been living in our steps. Thankfully he’s not poisonous – he’s actually kind of cute!

A huge spider that lives by the barn. *awaits the “AHH CREEPY SPIDER” comments*

Dew drops on lettuce in the grocery store. πŸ˜›

Finally, here are some book pictures that I got in the library the other day. πŸ™‚

Well, that’s about it for this post! πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for looking at my photos. I know there weren’t quite as many as in my last recent photography post, but don’t worry, I have more photos coming very soon. πŸ˜‰ I hope you all have an absolutely amazing day! ❀

      1. Srsly. Wolf spiders are the coolest. The only ones that I’m not so hot on are black widows…for obvious reasons. But I think the only reason people hate spiders is because they don’t know a lot about them. My little sis got this spider guide one time, and I was shocked to find out that only three kinds of Texan spiders are venemous. The rest are completely harmless. That was when I decided that spiders were alright.

      1. You’re welcome! I think I’d rather have a donkey than a dSLR, but I’m not 100% sure. Maybe I could get them at the same time (anyone have $1,000 they’re willing to give away?) and take pictures of the donkey with my dSLR!! XD Brilliant plan, Megan.

                1. She’s actually a mail-lady! πŸ˜› And yep, she did! She actually left a thank-you note for me – I told you about it in the letter that hasn’t come yet. XD


  1. I LOVE your photography, and this kind of post!❀️My favorites were the ones of the truck nearish the beginning, and the one of Laura holding a flower. Also, I had a slight excitement attack because in one of the last book photos it’s the Anne series! I love all of those books so, so much.😊

  2. I LOOOOVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY EEP! πŸ˜€ Ha ha, I know, right? 1.8 mm definitely makes everything pretty. πŸ˜€ In fact, I challenge you to think of three really ugly things and then try and take beautiful pictures of them. πŸ˜›
    Ahem. Oh, at first I thought that dog in the beginning was Maude! He’s so cute. πŸ™‚ Ooh, that bicycle is amazing! I love succulents. OH MY GOODNESS THAT TRUCK IS SO NEAT! Rusty, but neat. πŸ˜‰ What a great photo opportunity! Ooh, I love the shots of the post office! Especially this one:
    The B&W pictures of your siblings are beautiful! Aww, the cuteeeee cats! You got some gorgeous pictures of them! Ha ha, Ember. XD
    Wow, that egret picture just struck me as really pretty. They look like doves of peace or something. XD AWW THE CATERPILLAR IS SO ADORABLE AND FLUZZY!
    Aww, the snake actually IS cute! I don’t normally like snakes but he’s alright in that picture. πŸ˜‰ Sigh Those poor unloved spiders.
    And lastly but not leastly, I adore this photo of bedewed lettuce! Soooo pretty.
    Question: do you take your camera EVERYWHERE you go? Hmm, what a good idea. XD
    I loved this post, as always, Clara!
    P. S. How are your classes going?

      Hehe, I’m glad you think the egret picture is pretty! XD YES I LOVE THAT CATERPILLAR.
      Yep, he’s probably the cutest snake I’ve ever seen! πŸ˜‰ Yes, indeed. Poor spiders. sigh
      Ooh, thank you! I like that lettuce one too. πŸ˜€
      Yeah…. I take my camera with me pretty much everywhere. XD It can get a bit cumbersome sometimes, but it’s almost always worth it! I get some pretty interesting photo opportunities that way. πŸ™‚
      Thank you again – I’m so glad you enjoyed my post!

      P.S: Thank you so much for asking! They’re going pretty well. πŸ™‚ I had to take a midterm history test on campus last week, so that was interesting. Thankfully I passed it! It took a LOT of studying. O_o I’m having to double up on my work since I’m going to be traveling later this week and I don’t want to miss any deadlines. How is school going for you? πŸ˜€


        Hee hee, yay!
        πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
        Yeah, I’ll bet! I don’t know if I’m brave enough to take it everywhere, but I do take it more places than I used to.
        You’re welcome again! I really did!
        P. S. Of course, dear! Oh good! Oh my, that must have been SO stressful. O.o I’m so glad you passed! Yikes, that sounds busy. Hope it goes well! And school is going pretty well for me too, thanks! I’m not loving Chemistry and writing isn’t my favorite either, but everything else is pretty good. πŸ™‚

  5. Your pictures are BEAUTIFUL!
    I mean, the angles perfect, the effects are AMAZING, the lighting… (proceeds to rant for the next couple of centuries)
    I love the books you’re reading! Lemony Snicket is one of my favorite authors. Your reading nook is also really pretty!
    Overall, OUTSTANDING photography!

    1. Ahh, thank you so much!! ❀ Haha, well, the pictures turned out fine, but the actual writing of the post turned out to be a complete failure and I decided not to keep wasting my time on it. XD
