Photo 92 - 365 Surviving the Storm

I know what you are thinking... She's showing us another flower shot... I can't help it, I love flowers. However, these roses have a special story. They survived Hurricane Irene. You can see that the fully bloomed rose is a bit battered but the new budding rose did well. This rose bush is right in the middle of our front yard and it was being blown back and forth for hours!

Photo 88 - 365 Birthday Flowers

In honor of my birthday this week, the folks at my office helped me celebrate with cake and flowers and a wonderful handmade birthday card. The cake was devoured quickly but thankfully I have the flowers which will last a little while longer and the card which will last forever!  I was able to get outside today and take some shots of the flowers. You'll see them again because I took quite a few photographs of these beauties.

Photo settings are: f/3.5, 1/200 sec., ISO 200, macro lens, no flash

Today's photo is of my birthday gift that was sent to me by my wonderful Husband. It really brightened my day.

He also got me some other things that I will share later. One is currently on backorder but will hopefully be here soon. It will be very instrumental in my future posts here. Hee Hee!
