Sunday Stills: 25 and 50 Steps

Here's the challenge:
Choose a starting spot, walk 25 steps in any direction and take 3 photos. The 25 steps can be outside your home, inside your home, in your neighborhood or away from your neighborhood.
Once your steps have been counted out, you must anchor one foot, you can pivot on that foot but your anchor foot may not move.

Here's my starting point:

25 steps took me almost to the end of the path.  The path is lined with coyote bush when you get around the bend.

I had to look closely at the bush, and then use my macro setting to get my pictures. 



I don't pay much attention to the coyote bush.  It exists as a ground cover for the slope between the front garden and the arena.  It was fragrant and buzzing with bees. 

I continued on another 25 steps which took me to Camille's pine tree and Oreo's grave.  Oreo was Camille's 4H rabbit and she buried him here between her tree and some boulders.



Passage followed me around while I was taking the pictures.  She was in an affectionate mood today, joining me in the garden and the barn, insisting that I take breaks and hold her.

  3. Very nice. You must have a serious camera to capture the detail on the bee from afar.
