A few photos of the nature in my backyard. So happy to be taking photos again.
I’ve started up a personal/diary/whatever sort of blog. For those interested, it’ll be photography, rants, general personal stuff, plus reblogging anything that I wouldn’t consider fit for my minerals blog.
So relieved to get back into photography. It’s like a breath of fresh air.
With some help from Husband and having realized I had a LOT more saved than I thought, I was able to afford a new camera! It’s currently coming in the mail. I was thinking about maybe going back and retaking a bunch of the collection once it gets here, if people are interested. Maybe make it a little more showy, since they’re already categorized for the most part.
I don’t know, I’m just so excited to have a new camera coming ahhhhhhhh.
I am so, so excited about these. Both wonderful pieces made by bekkathyst. The first is a sodalite bracelet and the second is this opal. The wire-wrapping is so sturdy! I was worried about the funky shape being a hindrance, but if it was, it certainly doesn’t show. Beautiful, amazing work. I’m still gushing.
EDIT: FORGOT TO MENTION! You can find her shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/EnchantedCreativity It updates pretty frequently, and if you have a stone, she does customs!
Wulfenite from Red Cloud Mine in Arizona. Some more splashes of orange coming through… Very nice crystal.
As you can see from these photos, my 6-year-old camera is on its last leg. It refuses to focus properly and the flash hasn’t been working for a long time now. I’m going to be saving up for a new one, but in the meantime, I have no reliable means of photographing the few other new additions. My only other option is my phone, which will have to do in the meantime.
