a study in color

I usually choose to photograph in bright, natural light.  

I decided to push my comfort zone a bit and capture these blooms on black.


It was definitely out of my comfort zone to photograph with a dark background.  But I love how it makes the color pop. And I'm reminded how good it is to change things up.  

Here's to pushing our boundaries and seeing where it takes us.

a few thoughts on photography

undefinedundefinedundefined Polaroid 660 Land Camera| Polaroid 600 film (oh how I miss my 600 film!) One of the things I love the most about photography is the ability to forever capture an instant in time.  And knowing that these pictures will live on much longer than me.  Capturing not what's there, but what I see - My perspective, my spin, my vision.  The funny looks I get in public when I am composing, focusing, and clicking away (most times with a baby on my hip) don't bother me at all.

In fact, sometimes I feel sorry for those people who don't see.  And I feel that if I could just put a camera in their hands, maybe, just maybe - they will be able to notice the beauty in their lives.

a time for tea

I enjoyed tea this weekend with a dear friend and our girls.  And although it rained outside, we were nice and cozy inside, enjoying our tea.

A little preview for you ~ I took film images as well, which I hope to share with you later this week!

weekend thoughts

I have to admit that I am picking up my film camera more than my digital these days.  And I'm truly loving it.....

I've included the last photo to show you how many of my photos are taken.   With my baby in my lap or on my hip.  And I wouldn't have it any other way!

I just want to thank you for your visits this week.  I truly appreciate your comments and emails ~

Have a wonderful weekend.
