Photo of the Week! Quick Moving Clouds

Good day all! A couple of weeks ago some areas around us were having severe weather (there were six tornados within 60 miles of us). The storms went right over us, and this is sort of what the clouds looked like. I used a filter and changed the style with my Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro smartphone. Do you use the preprogrammed technolgy to change your photos?

Have a great week, y’all! And take some awesome photos!

Photo of the Week!- April Fool’s Day Faucet Prank

Good day all! Happy April Fool’s Day! Have you ever done this prank before? I haven’t on purpose, sometimes our spray nozzle sticks. In this photo I show it wrapped with a twist tie. You can also wrap a rubber band around it. When you do this, just make sure that the person turning on the faucet won’t notice that the spray nozzle has something on it. This photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro smartphone.

Have a great week, y’all! And take some awesome photos and pull some pranks!

Photo of the Week!- Spring Flowers and Growth.

Good day all! We’ve been having lots of cloudy days this month. I’m glad though that it has been warm enough for our flowers (crocus, daylily, and tulips) grow, and some of them are even blooming. Someone told me that the oak leaves looked rustic, I thought they looked like clutter. What do you think? This photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro phone.

Have a great week, y’all! And take some awesome photos!

Photo of the Week!- Squirrel Digging in the Snow, Part 3

Good day all! Have you ever seen a squirrel digging in the snow like this? The odd thing about this was that there weren’t any nuts there, just rocks and oak leaves. I opened the sliding door even more than last week’s photo to try and get better clarity, so I really startled it. Do you think it was looking for nuts? This photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro smartphone.

Have a great week, y’all! And take some awesome photos!
