After It Rains || Macro Photography (Vol. 2!)

Hi ya'll.
It's 9:32 pm and I'm finally writing this! *Sigh,* I read so many posts by blogger ladies who always are saying their life is so busy, and they get around to blogging when they can- and they're generally mothers/college/high schoolers/ or other things! I'm a 12 year old blogging about my ventures and love for photography, and I am so busy. I'm not even in high school yet!

I am starting a blogging schedule soon to keep a better schedule of all that goes on around here. I've got big plans, hopefully coming soon, for this little corner of the internet. So please keep watch this summer as I keep hinting the little details! I have been wanting to change my blog style+website for a long time, (OK. Maybe just four or five months!) and hopefully late this summer I will have the chance to do something big like that. For now, please just pray! :)

Anywaay...I'm sure you didn't come for my rambles & shambles. I did a post like this just a couple months ago (Was that really April!?) and really loved how many sweet comments and kindness I got toward that post. As you know, I am a nature lover, and I show that through my pictures. Rain and raindrops especially. 😀

Okay. So I love bokeh. Bokeh is just one of those little pleasures in life that gives you satisfaction and joy. I am not sure why I love bokeh so much, but after a rainstorm and the sun's out, ALL I CAN GET in my pictures is... bokeh.  💎

I had so much fun taking all of these pictures! It was a tiny bit of a challenge though, trying not to get my camera wet (I was standing in a forest after it rained!) and taking all of these. But I am honestly in love with how they came out.

Some were SO MUCH better than others, while some were... blurry and a bit... ugly. You know, being a photographer has taught me to do your best and succeed. I am a bit of a perfectionist, so that is hard for me lol!  😉

I really did have fun taking all of these. The lighting- the bokeh- the feeling- the texture- everything. I feel like these should be on a card with a Bible verse... maybe a future business in store?

It was around four o' clock- almost Golden Hour but not yet when I took these, so there was some shadowing and harsh light, but I think I did alright...

Okay. Can I just say how much I love these TWO!!! Especially the one above ⬆ (!!!!)

Life has all of those secret, hidden pleasures that you don't discover until you are a photographer. Me, I've been a photographer for... exactly 10 months, not counting old selfies and pictures with a point & shoot. 😉  My Dad really got me interested in the whole photography thing, and also lots of inspiration came from my dearest shutterbug friends, Joanna, Charlotte, Aliyah, Petra, and okay, maybe not a friend, but I do love Joel Sartore's work. He's so inspiring as a National Geographic photographer! 🐯 (I couldn't help put in a tiger emoji!)

So that's me. That's my rambles and shambles for now. I hope you really enjoyed all the photographs. I have so much to share- but so little time. Oh, there's so much still left in this year. We're almost exactly halfway through it. 2017, where have you gone? Gosh, I sound like it's the New Year. I better go before I make a mess of myself. 😜

Do you like rainstorms?
Are you excited for 2017 to end- or do you feel like it's going waay to fast?
