Hi everyone! I know it’s been a while since I posted any of the photographs I took at Old Tucson in 2012, but after all the photos I took of the Spring blossoms, I wanted to take a beak from posting photographs and post all the other things I have to talk about instead.
The photos I’m posting today are the back and white converted photographs. All the photographs in this post are of the buildings and scenery found in Old Tucson.
Converting the photos was not very hard, but I did have some trouble getting the photographs with a large amount of light colored objects in it to convert correctly. This seems to be a common problem for me when I convert photographs from color to black and white in Photoshop Elements 12. Still, I was able to manage and work with the photos enough to make them look the way I wanted them to.
Earlier this week, I talked about the Ironwood tree blossom photographs I took this past spring. For today’s post, I wanted to share the Ironwood blossom photographs that I converted to black and white.
The photographs in this post are the last photographs I took of the 2018 spring blossoms. I’m sad I do not have more to share, but I’m happy I have photographs of the blossoms I feel comfortable sharing on my blog!
For the last few weeks, I talked about the photos I took of peach tree and Saguaro blossoms. This week, I wanted to share the last set photographs I took of 2018 spring blossoms.
The last set of photographs are of Ironwood tree blossoms. Normally, the Ironwood trees near my home do not blossom as much as they did this year. Every single Ironwood tree I saw was covered in lavender purple blossoms. They were so beautiful and I’m so happy I got to see them and take photos of the blossoms!

Near the end of April 2018, the Saguaro cactus began to blossom. The Saguaros near my home blossomed for about two or so weeks before they closed. During this time, I made plans to take photos of the blossoms, but I was only able to take photos of the blossoms two times, near the beginning of the blossom season and at the end.
Hi everyone! Earlier this week, I shared the photos I took of the blossoms on peach tree near my house. For today’s post, I wanted to share the black and white version of all the blossom photos I took.
Hi everyone! It’s time for the yearly post of all the peach tree blossom flower photos I took this year! It was hard to take photos of the blossoms this year because the blossoms are very late. Normally the blossoms come in February, March at the latest, but this year they didn’t come until April. The amount of time I could take photos of the blossoms was very short as well, but I was able to get some very nice photos of the blossoms!
Hi everyone! On February 22, 2018, I took photos of a beautiful sunset. The sunset didn’t have the normal spectacular clouds near where the sun set in the sky, but there were clouds. I really liked the textures of the clouds so I took photos of them…
Even though the clouds didn’t cover the setting sun, I was able to take some nice photographs of a saguaro cactus as the sun set…
Hi everyone! I’m back from a two week blogging break! I had to take some time off because of the Easter holiday and to focus on my day job. But I’m back now with a new post about my trip to the Arizona Renaissance Festival! I’m also doing some cross posting of the photos in this post on my second blog, The Estella Imitative, so if you see photos with this blog’s watermark in a post on that blog, I’m just too lazy to reedit photos with the right watermark. 🙂
On March 3, 2018 I went to the Arizona Renaissance Festival. Unlike previous years, I didn’t buy a season pass so I only went to the festival once this year. Since the festival has themed weekends, I wanted to go to Time Travelers weekend. I’ve gone every year during this weekend for a few years now and I enjoy it so much I keep going back.
Since 2018 is the 30th anniversary of the festival, Lego Discovery Center in Arizona Mills Mall created a sculpture out of Legos to celebrate.
Hi everyone! In my last photography post, I showed and talked about photographs I took of the desert after a rainstorm. While I was outside taking those photographs, a rainbow formed and I began to take photographs of it.
The rainbow started out as small, but it became a full arch.
It almost became a double rainbow, but I didn’t take a photograph of it.
