I Spy Photography Challenge 14

Happy Sunday! I didn't think I was able to get enough photos together this week to join in the I Spy Photography challenge, but I found 2 recently taken pictures on my phone and then cheated a little by using one I took a couple of weeks ago, so here they are :)

This week the prompts are:
  • Wood
  • Music
  • Easter (or Sunday)
  • Button
  • Your Choice


I'm cheating a little here...this wasn't a brand new photo taken but was taken about 2 weeks ago. 
I love how this photo turned out at sunset with this fallen tree inside the lake.


I love listening to nature's music and I knew I wanted to take a photo of a cardinal sitting on this bird feeder I have hanging in my backyard for this photo prompt. But, while they are always around, somehow I never got the chance to take a picture of one. But I did catch this little sparrow on it when I was sitting outside with my phone.

I don't get the best photos with my iPhone 6, which is the reason why I so much more prefer my Canon DSLR camera...but don't really see the point in upgrading my phone right now as I know I'd still prefer using my Canon camera. 


A basket of colorful Easter eggs. The brownish eggs were done by boiling them in red onion peels. Next year I want to try a few more natural colors!
This is another one that was taken with my phone, no idea why I hadn't thought of using my Canon camera... 


Buttons are my favorite accessories for adding to my  handmade cards so I have plenty of them. At some point during my 18+ years of papercrafting I had them sorted by colors, but a few years ago I decided to throw them all together into a plastic pencil holder box.

My Choice:

2 Daffodils in my Backyard. I don't think there is a type of flower I don't like, but daffodils are my most favorite spring flowers. 

A few more more flowers - I used an antique filter from the free PhotoScape app. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. I love the colourful egg decorations for Easter! :) I do prefer photos with my digital camera too but I most often have my phone on me so I take a lot more photos with that I think! My phone camera isn't the best either so I try take my big camera on days out to get better pics then :)
