Back to my {fruit} roots

The day after I took my final exam I was a bit lost. I had no idea what to do with all the hours in my day, and couldn’t decide if I wanted to sleep them away or be productive. …and by productive I mean sitting outside doing next to nothing. To my surprise, I ended up going on a crazy cleaning spree and having a crazy desire to take pictures of the pretty plants in the backyard. Especially the plum tree that has copious amounts of plums growing.

Its been too long since I took a picture of a fruit tree and I started to think how much I used to do it in the beginning of me learning to shoot in manual, and I wanted to get back to that feeling. I started late in the morning, which meant the sun was high in the sky, so I had to get in the silliest squatted positions to get these, but I had a lot of fun.

With the one flower photo, I had to lay flat on my back on the patio in order to get the sun in the shot, which ended up giving it the unique effect it did. I think next time I do this, I’ll be smarter and get an earlier start. Regardless of all the neck and back strain, it was enjoyable to do. Here’s only a few of what I got that day.
