Hey you all! I haven't abandoned you...really...I promise. Summer is crazy busy for some odd reason and I have found a fun way to extend my photography. Are YOU on Instagram? OMG...Apple has made it so easy & so fun to snap, edit and post. I'm in the process of opening an INSTA-CANVAS e-shop. I ordered this photo below to see what the canvases COULD look like!

I took this for a weekend project called "lowdownground" for Instagram and I instantly fell in love with photo. They're Austin's Converse. I'm really excited to see it and hang it! I still can't believe these pics are from my iphone! You can find me on Instagram...kellykardos

I felt bad not participating in the Scavenger Hunt on Sunday, I had all but one prompt done and we decided to go on a day trip so that day came and went...Monday came and went...not sure what happened there...and here it is Tuesday already! But I wanted to come and say hi!
 Over at Beyond Layers with Kim Klassen, we are to look for fences this week.  
I didn't have to go very far for my first shot...just my patio in fact.

I went out to take an i-photo of a hibiscus over where this guy landed...Whoa, hello! I slowly slipped back into the house, grabbed my camera and slowly and steadily snapped and walked as close as he would let me.

*Look who had a baby...actually 3 babies! Our backyard bird with the wonky feathers is a mommy! All 5 came to visit today mom, dad, and the 3 kids...It was a good day!
Happy Snapping!


  1. Yes, insta-love! Can't wait to see what you think of the canvas. And ummm, wow on the birds. I'm getting less and less motivated to blog with summer. My routine is just off, if you know what I mean!

  2. Oh I don't even know where to start. I love that instagram shot of the shoes, and I too am anxious to hear how you like the canvas. And that shot of you is really cute, love it that you are leaning against a wall, nice composition. And that hawk...and the birds omg great photos, everyone!!

  3. Awww, what a stunning hawk! Love the mom and baby shot too, how nice to have so many lovely visitors on your patio! :)

  4. I never got into Instagram, but my sister is a huge fan...it might be the next thing I have to look into ♥ Love the pic of the sneaks!

  5. First of all, I've got to love on the Insta-Canvas e-shop and those converse shoes. I'm as thrilled as you are with how the pictures turn out. It's been just about too much fun for me this summer. (Hoping I can continue when school starts back.) And that hawk... is... gorgeous. Love the mom and dad, too. So sweet to have a bird family right there.

  6. That is gonna be such a cool pic! And birds freak me out but that's such a great picture.

    1. Aaahhhh!!! You're here!!! I didn't realize u had a blog. I can't find where to follow You!!!

  7. Hey Kelly....love that phone shot of the converse. I just started on instagram and have being seeing people mention their pictures being available on their insta canvas and I had no idea what it was. So thanks for enlightening me. I just started following you on iG (michelleocm). Your photos are fantastic.

  8. I can't believe you shot the chucks with your iphone. That photo ROCKS!!!

    I have been TRYING to figure out how to get better at phone pix, but I cannot stand looking at the LCD screen instead of through the viewfinder. It's always bright and sunny and I never know what I'm shooting! It's driving me crazy that I cannot do it well.


Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the blogging world. Your comments always put a smile on my face. Hope to see you again real soon.
