You know it’s springtime in Texas when you start to see purple Texas bluebonnets lining the highways and covering random pockets of grass. For about three to four weeks, they can be spotted just about anywhere and everywhere! And they are beautiful! Each year we sneak over to my mother-in-law’s front yard in Sugar Land to take pictures of the kids playing in the bluebonnets! This week’s theme came particularly in handy because my mother-in-law lives in a typical suburban neighborhood (not in a field of bluebonnets – Ha)! One slight move of the camera would capture multiple houses, cars parked in the driveway, cars whizzing by, a black paved street, people walking their dogs, and anything else you’d see in your typical neighborhood. Creative angling and wide aperture to the rescue!!
P.S. I just now realized that my kids are wearing the same clothes as in the last post. LOL. Wanna know why?! These photos were totally impromptu! After Easter dinner I raced the kids outside for some quick Easter pics. I got so busy the next two weeks, that these became our bluebonnet pictures this year, Easter outfits and all!
Next up in the blog circle is Amanda Fraser from Brisbane, Australia. Continue the circle to see her take on this week’s theme.
