So, I went back to the doctor about my ankle, and he scheduled me an MRI. It was vaguely terrifying to me, but once I got settled in I almost fell asleep because I was so tired. After it was done, I left, and saw this statue just hanging out outside of the building. So I took some photos and this is what I came up with. It’s pretty cool.
Results from the MRI- still pending. Hopefully my ankle is not too messed up this time!
After watching Drums Along The Rockies, I didn’t want to have to deal with the hordes of traffic, so I sat in my car and listened to the radio a bit, and texted some of my friends and my parents about the shows. (Me: “THEY PLAYED THE FIREBIRD SUITE! DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW AMAZING THE FIREBIRD SUITE IS? STRAVINSKY IS A FREAKING GENIUS!” Dad: “Okay I can tell you are excited.”) But, it finally cleared up enough, and I set out of the parking lot around 11:30. But then I saw downtown Denver, and HAD to take a picture. I took a few and found that this one had the best exposure. Then, I stood there and watched the city. Not like Fort Collins or Greeley is that small, but I still consider myself a “small town girl.” (Seriously, when I was in high school, I was late to school one day because there was a traffic jam…. Because there was a dead cow on the road. I’m not even kidding.) The city perplexes me and gives me a slightly claustrophobic feeling at times, because of the tall buildings and all of the people. But, there is a certain beauty about it that you can’t find elsewhere, with the lights and the buildings, that I can appreciate.
Ah, here it is. Fort Collins, the place where my home fires burn. I drove up in the foothills to get this lovely picture, which turned out quite nicely and was my favorite out of the batch of photos that I took. I’ve been wanting this photo for a while, and when I finally got to take it, the view was better then I had imagined. Unfortunately there is no place in Greeley high enough for me to take my picture there, which is why I haven’t had the chance to take this until now when I went home for a brief visit.
Ah, here it is! I have worked very, very hard to get a successful picture of “star trails.” (See how I did it here: https://myownphotoproject.wordpress.com/2012/03/13/how-i-took-watching-the-stars/ ) This was me setting up my camera on my tripod in my backyard and rigging it so the shutter would stay open for thirty minutes. I decided to throw the windmill in front of the chicken house in the shot, and it turned out VERY well. It looks like the windmill is watching the stars, hence the name of the photo. It couldn’t have worked out better, and I’m glad that this is the photo that I’m celebrating my 100th day of this project with! Hopefully more of these pictures in the future. 🙂
Featured again are the butterflies on my window, this time flying towards to moon. I really like the photo, except it just look weird because the outside of the window was dirty which is sad. But I like how the colors turned out and I like the composition.
