When a photographer is out in the field, she must think on how best to shoot. My number one influence is light. Then I consider what I plan on shooting.

Putting off for another day what could possibly be done today only produces a prison of sorts, (wouldn’t you agree?) … preventing us from moving in any direction which virtually gets us stuck in frozenality. Life is short and goes by fast and yet we all procrastinate at times but if we … Continue reading Procrastination

Sometimes in order for a photographer to remain sharp she must challenge herself which requires a good eye, at times overcoming a hostile environment, seeing art, a steady hand, and pushing beyond her “known” boundaries. Sometimes a photographer is willing to subject herself with discomfort and hardship all for … Continue reading Crystal Clarity
What is happening to time? I’m astounded that it is late November and the Ho-Ho-Ho Season is upon us. This entire last year in fact, whizzed by so fast it feels like a dream.

Out the door I ran camera in hand heading for my Forest to make magic far far away from the stressors of my life. What a week! Oh my goodness what didn’t happen?

Perhaps yesterday will be the last mad dash run for Fall Colors. If that is the case I have more then enough images to show you. I hear the white stuff is a-coming as soon as tomorrow. I had to take a real deep breath before I wrote that tidbit. Zooming like an electron within … Continue reading The Thrill Of Success
It’a unanimous. Slam-dunk. Across the board win. Everyone who commented on my last post told me they do not get tired of Fall Colors.

Now knowing how time is of the essence, Hubby quickly we became enthralled in what we were doing after an initial “hiccup”.

Hubby worked on his sound system project ALL SUMMER. [Interpret that as doing nothing other then the project at hand … the genius worked only on this project.] He designed and built a table, a stereo rack, two speaker stands, and researched until his eyes fell out, on which equipment he was going to invest … Continue reading Genius At Work
Eagerly taking a few steps on the path, Hubby was no longer next to me. Stopping then turning, I reluctantly retraced my steps back to the parking lot where hubby was rooted in place, gaping at his camera in complete dismay. Sigh … A bombardment of questions hit me as Hubby asked how? where? what?, … Continue reading The Walk
