While taking my dog out for her evening constitutional, I noticed that a lilly had started to grow where my daughter Lilly (not a coincidence; she chose the bulbs) and I had planted earlier in the spring. The dim glow from a path light was just enough to pick up the highlights in the leaf. This photo was originally published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

I wanted to capture an image of the rain late last week for an Instagram post. But with all the rain we have had this summer - I had already posted plenty of interesting rainy day photographs. I was determined this one would be different! I spotted red raindrops on my kitchen window in Glenview which were created by a red hummingbird feeder, a foot outside of the window. I attached an Olloclip 21x macro lens to my iphone and captured the colorful macro close-up of the colorful raindrops, including a hint of the bright green colors in our yard - which was of course -- enhanced by all the rain this summer! If you want your photographs to standout on social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Flickr - make them different! We are all competing on social media for attention from our family members and friends - and many with the general public or customers for views and likes. Taking and posting photographs that are different will move you up the social media ladder. Also viewers will take more time viewing the image and may read the material with it and possible making a comment - versus just scrolling on past to the next post. This photo was originally published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

Oil pastel artist Pamela Hamilton, of Geneva, works on a still life while people peruse her tent of artwork on display at the Art in Your Eye festival in Batavia on Saturday afternoon. Hamilton started working the medium in college, took a break to raise her family, and has been actively creating again for the past four years. She enjoys working with pastels because the "pure ground pigment" is "so colorful" offering a wide range of vibrancy. For more info, go to artbypamelahamilton.com.
