Easter Garden Photos

Happy Easter!
(Yeah, sorry for such an interesting title.)

I just got back home after a weekend at my grandpa's house, and I am SOOO not ready to go to work tomorrow. I just can't, right now. To console myself, I'm currently watching Pewdiepie's livestream on Twitch and surfing Reddit + Tumblr. The Holy Week holiday was incredibly stressful and frantic, and I want more (of the holiday, that is). Oh well. Life.

Since it was the last day of freedom, I woke up this morning with a purpose: to take photos of my art and mom's garden while the lighting was perfect. (Note: This post will be photo-heavy.)



Got around to practicing my strokes with water brushes. I'm still not able to draw roses (ugh), but I guess they're sort of looking like flowers more, now? Hahaha. Alessia Cara for the win! I love her and her music so much. They're relatable and has clean lyrics. Also, the BEAT. Funky as hell.




This (above) is by far one of the best shots I've ever taken. I love how well the color of the flower went with the sky and everything. It was meant to be, for sure.


Quite ironic since it's Easter and the flower should be blooming. It looked like a gown though, so I took a photo. 





Photo above is currently my wallpaper! Haha. It looks good on my mac with a dark themed doc and bar. I might release this as a wallpaper soon. I'll need to know how many people want it. 


Nestled in between the greens, this flower has been well taken-care of. :) Just the thought puts a smile to myself.

Took these photos a few hours before lunch time using my Nikon D5100 and my aunt's memory card (forgot mine - only to find out as we were going home that I had it in my bag's secret pocket all this time).

  4. You are so talented! I am amazed at what you drawn and how beautiful your words look on your free time. Your pictures are beautiful too. I love flowers at the beginning of Spring because they are a breath of fresh air for me. My favorite picture is the "gown" flower. Even though it is not blooming it is so beautiful!

  5. Your pictures look very pretty and it seems that your Easter was full of sunshine. In the UK we had one of the worst storms so far this year, with winds of over 100mph, which made Easter an "inside" holiday, hoping the windows won't shatter.

  6. I love your Easter garden photos, they are very Pinterest-worthy! And also very apt for the spring time. My favorite is the second picture, the fuschia(?)-colored flower really stands out against the light blue of the sky. Did you use any filter for these?

    1. Thank you! I started around a year ago, it was actually unplanned since some of friends were also just starting, so I thought I'd try. Next thing I know, I've come to love it. :)

  15. Absolutely loved all the photos, very crisp and vivid. Nothing is a refreshing as nature indeed, eventhough we only have little pockets of it in our homes. Awesome job!

  16. I love the photos you included in this blog post. I especially love the flower that isn't blooming but looks like a gown (as you described it so aptly). I can almost feel the serenity in the garden just by looking at the photos you shared. I'd love to do this as well when I visit my parents in a few weeks.
