As well as painting, I like to take photos. The first is a shot of my side garden in the late afternoon, looking north.
The second is a moment when I captured rays of light over an area of my garden looking west.
The third and fourth shots are of a little chipmunk I feed every day. This little creature lives in my rock garden and has many many exits and entrances and he zips all around in and out as he pleases. I wish I knew what his home was like from the inside!
As he/she is not tame enough to get very close to me, I had to sit on the ground for about 20 minutes, being very still and wait for him/her to come out to eat some seeds I left out.
I used the zoom in my cheap camera for the chipmunk and then cropped the photos when I downloaded them.
