“ I ❤️ Orchards! ” It was a rainy, windy week around home this week, at least it was for any time I was available to go for a nature walk. So I settled for something close to the old house. On Saturday I returned to the house we're trying to downsize away from & the pear trees are in full bloom. I will really miss our little orchard of apple & pear trees when we fully move. I grew up surrounded by almond orchards & now my fruit trees are the best part of spring at the house.
“ Over There ” My son's girlfriend is in town and so I asked her to model this week. We're breaking the rule by having her walk out of the frame and I cut off her arm which was pointing towards the woods. The horizon is also a little askew. I added the impressionistic touch in editing.
I think I struggled like many others, but I did have some fun with a few other photos and editing processes. Those are posted below. #breaktherules #NicoleBeusHarris #NDBHphotography #flannel
“New Life” On Sunday we found a birds nest in our front door wreath. It had 4 eggs and an upset momma bird whenever we tried to use the door. On Tuesday we had this - a baby bird and 2 eggs.

On Saturday momma bird took off when I was looking out the window so I cracked open the door and grabbed a vi
“ In the Shadows ” Last year I planted some ornamental kale. Normally this variety is good for only one season, but one of the plants went to seed. Now as we approach December, under a layer of leaves, I found a new plant just a foot from where last year's kale was planted. I loved how the light and shadows were hitting the leaves with the low afternoon sun. I also liked how this reminded me more of sea coral than just a plant. #nature #ornamentalkale #ndbhphotography #nicole
