see the beauty

So this week’s photo challenge is Free Spirit.  What does that mean? Well I’m not really sure…they didn’t explain it very well.  “To capture this idea of the free spirit, I would suggest breaking some rules. Sometimes it is necessary to overexpose a frame slightly and point the lens to the sun for a bit of glare to capture that sense of a different, free, moving reality.”  

I overexpose all the time and I’m not afraid of  ‘flare’ (aka sun glare) so I didn’t really follow the directions very well…This is mostly just me playing around with a macro lens I got to borrow from work, but I still think it can capture the Free Spirit aspect:

This macro lens is AWESOME!



Hee Hee! I just love how this bee looks!


Love the color of this car and maybe it follows the ‘free spirit’ because you don’t see these often anymore (Sure that’s it!)


So maybe this post was more of me being a ‘free spirit’ from the challenge, rather than using the camera in the ‘not supposed to’ ways (although I break the rules all the time….HEY! There’s that Free Spirit again!)

  1. Hey, nice photos… You’re free spirit will always be with you and it comes through in your photos…If being yourself means breaking the rules of the photography status quo, then always break the rules 🙂
