Sometimes being spontaneous and letting things happen on their own is the best way.
Two examples of this, first, I was picking blackberries and the lighting was perfect and the sky was purple, I ran inside threw on a bridesmaids dress from one of my best friend's weddings and grabbed my camera and my cousin. (She had been wanting to practice taking pictures before getting her own camera.)
And we just went with it!
The little daisies were growing wild in the field and I had to crawl under a barbed wire fence in that dress!
It was all worth it though!
The second example of letting things fall into place was the dragonfly picture!
My dad and I were on the back porch early one morning and I was sneaking up on this dragonfly to take pictures of it.
Of course it kept flying away every time I approached, my dad stuck his pointer straight up in the air the next time the dragonfly took off, it landed perfectly on my dad's finger!
I guess the moral of the story is it's great to chase your goals and dreams but sometimes things that are meant to be, will be!
The deer was one that I spotted in a state park and because I was using a 50mm lens what you see was about my exact distance from the animal!
Basically I WAS CLOSE!!!
But this deer was pretty used to people so it wasn't all that shocking, it just made for an amazing picture in my humble opinion!!!!
