Over the weekend, I went around and took pictures of things that I saw outside. I find photography incredibly relaxing and there are moments when I think, "If I had a DSLR, would my life be a little different?" I've edited some of these pictures with PicMonkey and others, I've left them as is.
I really liked how the sun hit this tiny plot of perilla (a type of herb, similar to mint).
I don't know what this is, but it looked interesting...
I was taking pictures of these flowers when I noticed a giant dragonfly. I ran the other way because it freaked me out so much.
The dragonfly that's perched onto of the flower. So, so big and it didn't even move a millimeter when I was prancing around in shock. I hate bugs. They creep me out.
I found this perilla plant interesting. It was growing between to slabs of concrete sidewalk and I found it so lonely, just growing there. It was the only thing standing, which projected such resilience. It's not like an ugly crabgrass growing between sidewalks, there's a slight beauty to a purple plant growing there. You don't see purple plants that much in life.
I leave you with this picture that I took of the setting afternoon sun. It was blinding to take it (I should have worn sunglasses) but I think the result was nice. I did some slight (minor) editing on PicMonkey to get the colors I wanted to come out.
