Beauty in the Creepy Crawlies

I took these pictures a few months ago. I was just going through some of my old pictures on my computer when I ran across them. And  thought that you guys would like to see them!

I remember it was one of the weirdest things. My mom and I were out side, I was doing some studying for an exam, and this caterpillar just fell out of the tree and landed on my book! Literally, just PLOP. Right there. 🙂 And it just crawled around the book for a while. Eventually I picked it up and put it safely on a plant. But not before I took these pictures.

It’s cool how just the most random little things (like a caterpillar falling from the sky), can make for such a great photo subject! 🙂

It’s pretty amazing how there is beauty in just about everything. It reminds me of this song by a band called ‘Gungor’. In one of there songs, there are these lyrics that go; “You make beautiful things, You make beautiful things out of dust.” (It’s a super duper fun song to sing by the way.) 🙂 Here is a link if you are interested in hearing the whole songhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ4yNYY1hHM

Hope you all have a beautiful day! 🙂

Beauty in Your Own Back Yard

The other day I was sitting in my back yard, not really doing anything, just sitting and thinking. Not too exciting right? Well, I happened to have me phone (which has a camera on it) with me. So, I decided to start taking pictures. Not because I saw something and thought that it deserved a picture. But mainly because I was board and taking pictures sounded like fun. Well, I got a bit of a surprise! I started taking pictures from different angles, and in the process, discovered that  just by doing a different angle, you can get some really cool pictures! (And just so you know I, didn’t edit any of these.)

 For this one, I simple held my phone super close to the ground, pointed the camera up, and took the picture.

 When I was taking is one, I was actually laying on the ground, looking out over our pool.

 Same as the one above, I was laying on the ground when I took this picture. The only thing different is that I flipped over.

Pretty neat I think! 🙂
