Okay GP Fam... more random shots taken this weekend. Please let me know what you think.

First, I'll start with the Rose Center.. I've been trying to nail this shot for a while now...

Last year, I had an assignment to photograph a building or City Landmark that everyone uses. This is what I submitted for my assignment, and got a B+ on

I received the grade I did b/c of the power lines and the light/pole being a distraction and drawing attention away from the Rose Center itself.

This is what I came up with yesterday afternoon...

Does this deserve an A?

I took some extra shots at the Rose Center and found these hidden gems by the entrance to the main part of the building.

On the left side of the entrance


On the right side of the entrance


I call this one "Reflections", for obvious reason


What used to be the local Grocery Store, before Food City, Ingles, Food Lion and Walmart moved into town, lol.


This lil bugger I spent about a good 15 minutes trying to photograph, and he jumped on my camera twice, and I had to very calmly and carefully put him back down, lol.



This was the best of the group of shots I got of him...


A pigeon was on watch duty when we first parked and got out down town


I cropped a second shot I got of the pigeon and sharpened it up a bit...


I found this fantastic guy in a tree at the park and had to get a couple shots of it...


To get this shot, I had to stand on the tree roots that were sticking out of the ground, and put the camera up as high as I could reach, and shoot blindly. I think it came out great considering I couldn't see what I was doing lol.


I have more photos to share, but I'll save some for later. Thanks for looking everyone!

No, I just took them yesterday, but with my digital camera I bought myself as a late christmas gift (tax return money). I forgot to buy film today when I was at walmart, but that'll be my next thing is loading that bad boy up and going hunting, lol.

Great photos! I say you cant put a grade on a photo, Each picture is different and has its own personality!! Happy shooting!
Thank you for your kind comment. It was for my photography course I was doing last year, hence the grade lol.

Zomg, it's so friggen cute!! <3 Awesome shot
Thanks Celeste! I have no clue what kind of Spider it was, but he was very bold, and just as inquisitive about me as I was about him (or her) lol. My kids freaked when he jumped onto my camera lol.

Thanks Jessie! I had fun shooting the whole group of shots, but I'm proud of myself for finally nailing the Rose Center... Gonna try yet again with that camera I found.

Amazing shots. Kudos to you for not screaming and freaking out when the spider jumped on the camera. I probably would have peed myself and ran screaming like a little girl.

The reflections shot has to be my favorite. But they are all wonderful. :)
