Photo A Day|| June 1-5.

Hey!

I’ve been taking part in monthly photo a day challenges on my Instagram account (heyyitsashley) and I’ve been having a lot of fun with them (when I don’t fall behind on pictures). I figured I would also cross post them to my blog as well. I think for the purpose of blogging, I will post 3-6 per blog post that I do throughout the month. That way I am not spamming my blog with a million photo a day posts back to back. You can follow me on Instagram (linked above) if you want to see them daily though! Some of these pictures will be taken with my Nikon. There will also be some taken with my iPhone.

June 1st-5th.

Camera: iPhone X.

I went to Target on Friday and noticed that the balls they have outside of the store were dressed like Mickey Mouse. I was pretty stoked about it, so I had to get a picture. I remember when Pokemon Go first came out, Target painted them to look like Pokeballs. I was curious why about the Mickey Mouse ears, but when I went inside I noticed they had a new section of the store dedicated to all things Mickey Mouse.

Instagram Caption: found a bunch of these guys munching on leaves at the beach today. 🐛🌿 || photo a day • snack.
Camera: Nikon D3400.

I went walking around the beach with my mom and aunt for a little bit and snapped some pictures. It finally stopped raining, so I was able to take my camera out. I seen a bunch of these caterpillars eating leaves. They look so fuzzy and a little creepy. 😛

Camera: iPhone X.

On Sunday, my cousin Michelle came to hangout and we went to the beach and then wen to grab some tacos from a taco place on the beach. It was just her and I, so that was cool. The sun wasn’t too bad when we first got there (we went really early around 9am). We ate lunch around 11am and then went back to my house. I got in the pool to get a lot of the sand off me and because the sun really came out while we ate lunch and it was pretty brutal having to walk so much back to the car in the sun and heat. Our beach has a lot of restaurants and bars on a little strip, so we walked a pretty far amount to the taco place. It was a lot farther than we both actually thought it was. Still a fun time!

Instagram Caption: “that dope ass beat in your heart, vibe to it.” || photo a day • this is so me! • i don’t know why, but i’m forever taking pictures of my shoes.
Camera: Nikon D3400.

Just a random picture. I don’t really have any explanation for it, lol. I tend to take a lot of pictures of my shoes for some reason. I’m not entirely sure why, but I guess it’s my thing. It was also perfect for the topic of “this is so me”, since it’s just something I always do.

Instagram Caption: forever heart eyes for this apartment building every time i see it at the beach. it’s so huge and so pretty. || photo a day • favourite.
Camera: Nikon D3400.

This is a huge apartment building on the beach. This picture isn’t even half of it. It’s also so pretty. It’s probably one of my favorite buildings along the beach, lol. I actually really love how this picture turned out too.

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a regular picture/life update, so I may do that soon or at least at some point this month. I’ve taken a lot more pictures over the last couple months that are not a part of the photo a day challenge, so I want to post those on my blog as well. I have a few reviews that I need to do, so those may be coming next week.

Days 25-31 of May.

I did end up skipping of the days, but not sure which one since I don’t number the days on my IG account.

Instagram Caption: i am over this rain 😒☔️🌿 || photo a day • macro.
Camera: Nikon D3400.

I really love this picture, but it does look a little fuzzy to me because my camera lens kept fogging up. As soon as I wiped it away, I had only seconds to get a picture before it would fog up again. The humidity, plus taking my camera from a cold house to a really hot humid rainy outside resulted in my fogged up lens UGH. I took multiple shots and then just gave up, lol. This was the best one.

Instagram Caption: my mom has a little pineapple growing in her garden. 🍍 || photo a day • garden.
Camera: Nikon D3400.

My mom’s pineapple plant is going strong. It actually looked like it was pretty dead only a couple days before this picture. It came back to life though! It’s so pretty. I love when it gets pink and starts to get little purple flowers blooming out of it.

Instagram Caption: it stopped raining long enough for me to snap a few pictures outside today. || photo a day • make.
Camera: iPhone X.

OMG, it stopped raining for like a couple hours! I was able to take my camera around outside my house to snap a few pictures. I think the rain is finally going to stop for awhile though and I am stoked. I am hoping I can actually go somewhere this weekend. I’m tired of sitting at home every single weekend due to this stupid rain. This is a picture of my new Nikon D3400!

Leaf & October. I love these girls so much. They love to sit and look out of the sliding glass doors. There is also always cats that run around our backyard, so they like to watch them too.

Instagram Caption: a year ago today i walked around an entire city and then walked up 87 steps to hang with my dude, abraham lincoln. probably one of my all-time favorite moments in DC. 🇺🇸 || i need another vacation, ugh. || photo a day • temptation.
Camera: Nikon Cool Pix.

I ended up reposting two pictures from my honeymoon for this day. These are from when we went to Washington DC. I loved Washington DC so much. It’s probably one of my favorite cities that I’ve been to so far. We literally walked around the entire city and it was ridiculously hot outside too. The Lincoln Memorial was one of our last stops. Saved the best for last! After all the walking, we finally decided to catch a bus, and then a taxi to a pizza place. After we ate, we caught the metro back to Virginia. Such a fun day though! I still need to do my honeymoon post, ahh. It’s been a year since I’ve been wanting to do it.
