Happy Weekend!

Fresh flowers are always a terrific way to start the weekend.  This morning, on my morning walk, I picked up a few hydrangeas for the house.  They are such pretty shades of red-violet, violet and blue-violet I wanted to set-up a photo shoot to capture them. It looks to be another busy weekend around here.  […]


Happy Weekend!

I have been taking full advantage of fresh tulips this spring.  Last weekend, I bought a dozen pretty lavender tulips to brighten up the house for spring and this morning I switched them out for a fresh dozen of orange tulips.  I love having fresh flowers around, it always brightens up the house and tulips […]


Happy Weekend!

I pulled my camera out for the first time since Christmas this week.  It feels very satisfying to work on my photography skills again, but I think they are a little rusty after the long break. It is cold and snowy here today, this sweet bouquet of yellow tulips are really helping to bring some […]


Happy Weekend!

With Halloween coming up up next week, my neighborhood is decorated in full force!  I on the other hand, did not decorate this year for Halloween at all (can you believe it!?).  Since I am so behind this year, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite ideas from around […]


Fall at the Farmer’s Market

Fall was in full swing at the Farmer’s Market this week. I dropped by to pick up a few gourds and pumpkins (I’ll show you why next week). While I was there I couldn’t resist the opportunity to practice my photography.  The Farmer’s Market is an amazing source for inspiration.  What is inspiring you lately? […]

Happy Weekend Randomness and Photography Tips

Wow, today I have a lot of randomness to discuss.  First, since it’s “Photography Friday” I wanted to share a couple photography tips with you. A couple weeks ago, in this post, I explained a little about exposure and defined the three elements that create an exposure…ISO, aperture and shutter speed.  This week, I planned […]

Interior Photos

Remember last week when I said I had officially been bitten by the photography bug…and that I had finally started using the manual setting?  Well, I wasn’t lying.  I have spent a couple hours each day this week practicing my interior photography by taking new photos of  each room in our home. Once I started […]


Happy Weekend!

Wednesday, I spent some time today playing with my camera. Remember earlier this year when I said it was my goal to learn how to use the manual settings on my camera? My photography class didn’t work out as planned, I was away for the first three classes, so I decided to drop it. However, […]


Texture in the Park…

Thursday afternoon, I decided to step away from our kitchen renovation.  I drove to the local park to try and capture some photos for the P52 Challenge this week, shadows. Typically, I don’t find the small-one mile walk very scenic, but I thoroughly enjoyed taking time to stop and focus on the details around me. […]
