I went on a photo walk in Riverside yesterday and I got some fun photos but I think this is my favorite. I don't get very many pictures of her so I take them when I can get them. You can see the other photos (and be jealous of the beautiful weather we had) at my flickr account.

The end, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

My tulips did not last as long as I had hoped. I took about a hundred shots of this one trying to get a petal that looked like it was falling off. Stood there with the remote in one hand and a few petals in the other dropping them one at a time. Definitely not an easy shot to get!

I had some fun trying to shoot the tulips handheld last night and kind of liked the look of them.

Tulips, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

I bought myself some tulips yesterday so the next few days will be photos of them I'm sure so I'm apologizing in advance. They are my absolute favorite flower and I think I could spend hours taking pictures of them.

The Klatch, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

Our local coffee shop recently changed its decor from unique and kitschy to the franchise look of a Jamba Juice. I'm not a big fan, but I did like the pattern of the orange. :)

It's been in the 80's here... ugh. Nothing better than ice cream on a hot day, though, right?

Photo LA, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

We drove out to Photo LA yesterday. So amazing to see work that I've only seen in books or on a computer screen. Very very different experience. Makes me want to print more of my work.

Sick day, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

I had a horrible migraine yesterday so spent the afternoon watching Eat Pray Love. No matter how much I wanted to like it I really didn't. The book was so much better.

Me, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

You all are going to have to put up with a lot of photos of me. I've been practicing with strobes and modifiers. None are very good but it's the only thing I shot yesterday!

Oatmeal Bread, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

I have been having a lot of fun baking this winter. I bought a huge package of yeast from King Arthur Flour (what a fantastic site, btw) and have been trying to use it up. I think I need to figure out wheat bread, though. The more I hear about "enriched" flour the more I think I shouldn't be using it.

Protection, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

I went to my favorite place for shooting poppies yesterday. Across the street from my apartment complex is a strip mall (IHOP, Pizza Hut, etc) and this time of year they always landscape with poppies. I probably end up there once a week. This was one of my favorites... I loved how the red one blurred out and framed the yellow. :)

Farewell, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

I went to the foothills at sunrise and loved the way the electrical towers stretched out through the valley.

The inside, originally uploaded by nicoleraephotos.

I need to do something to push myself out of my comfort zone and setting up the tripod on my balcony for all my neighbors to see in order to take a picture of myself is definitely a way to do that!
