Like Mother Like Daughter

This sweet girl snapping some images at a local sculpture park for her photography class. I love watching her come home each week with new assignments and helping her figure out the exposure triangle as she takes pictures in manual mode. She’s really starting to get the hang of it.

Large Leaf

Anyone know what type of leaf this is/what tree is came from? I do not know these things. It’s very big though.

The Marsh Filtered

Are you getting sick of pictures of the marsh yet? I have so many because it is one of my favorite places to walk. It is so close to my house and it looks different each time I go there depending on the time of year.

This one I took with my phone and put a filter on in Snapseed. Looks kind of dreamy.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

A Bend in the Water

I’ve been off Facebook for over two weeks now. I just couldn’t take the negativity and politics anymore. No matter where I go on social media, even here on WordPress, where all I follow are photography blogs, I still see it, but nothing like Facebook!

I also couldn’t stand all the ads. On the WordPress mobile app, there are no ads. Let’s hope it stays that way.

On Instagram people tend to post just pictures and not as much of the political stuff. There are some ads but not as many as on Facebook. Instagram is much simpler within my circle compared to Facebook.

I’m not active on Twitter. I only follow a few accounts like my kiddo’s school and a few friends who aren’t active either, so no problem there. I follow a few spiritual accounts, too, so it’s usually a pleasant experience to check out Twitter when I do and the ads aren’t too bad.

I must say I do feel better being off of Facebook, but suffer from a little of that fear of missing out on all the fun posts like people’s family pictures and updates especially from the people who aren’t also on Instagram. Honestly, those updates weren’t as frequent as the negative stuff, though.

What’s your experience with different social media platforms?
