I'm posting my pictures first on Instagram, then uploading them here. Enjoy!
Here are days 11-15:
Day 11: Close.
This is my favorite flower, the Gerbera daisy. This particular plant was given to me as a going-away gift when I quit my long-time library assistant job for a different library assistant job in 2011. I left behind some wonderful friends, and this flower always reminds me of them. When D and I moved to Seattle last fall, I had to leave the plant behind with my mother for a few months, but ever since I got it back, I've been treating it as royalty and, as you can see, it's really started to bloom!
I love Gerbera daisies because they are always so bright and cheery. We actually have three different [color] varieties in our yard (including this one), but none of them mean as much to me as this one does.
Day 12: Far.
Like most cats, Betsy is a big fan of getting up high and looking down on D and me. She's a really big fan of shelves in general, but because of the location of this bookshelf, she hasn't had much of a chance to get on top of it. Of course, as soon as D helped her up, she did NOT want to get down, and that's where the fun began.
Day 13: Bokeh (Out of Focus).
I had to look up the meaning of "bokeh" because I really didn't understand the concept. I still don't think I captured it very well with my iPhone, but at least you get a general idea.
These flowers were a gift from D, just because.
Day 14: Sun Flare.
Obviously, I can't really capture a sun flare with my camera, because a) I am not very close to the sun and b) it would literally burn my eyes, BUT I can capture rays of sunlight, which is what I did on a walk D and I took the other day. That's how I grabbed this shot of sunlight beaming through the trees.
Day 15: Black and White.
