Serenity Project – November

Oh my goodness!  Where has the time gone.  It feels as if November is flying by.  I know for a lot of people, November is a gloomy month.  The days are growing shorter, cooler and are often fraught with rain.  I’m not going to lie and say that my heart doesn’t do cartwheels when it’s hot…

      Thanks my friend. I was pretty low on that first image, but it was too wet to be down on my stomach.ReplyCancel

    You find such beauty in everyday Sue. These images reflect that so well! (the first thing I visualized was George dragging you around on your walk though) 😀ReplyCancel

    Your words are photos pair so well together, Sue. Having been to your neighbourhood, I can understand why you love your urban macro sessions – there’s so much material right at your doorstep. Beautiful images. I love the soft light you’ve captured even though they were taken on rainy days.ReplyCancel

Serenity Project – October

This fall has proven to be hectic despite the fact that I don’t have to do the back-to-school thing anymore.  Finding time to slow down and relax is a challenge especially when I want to spend time taking pictures.  One of my favourite photography genres is macro photography.  My Nikon 105mm f/2.8 macro lens used…

    These are absolute perfection, Sue. I’m so glad you pulled out the macro lens again <3ReplyCancel

    • adminOctober 22, 2016 - 8:18 am

      Me too!! I’m not just saying this to be a suck-up, but your session was really a kick in the pants to pull it out again. One of my favourite things to do is to walk through my neighbourhood and search for things to photograph with my macro lens. I hadn’t done that in long time and I needed too. Thanks for the spark.ReplyCancel

  • WendyOctober 19, 2016 - 3:19 pm

    These images are really beautiful. Likewise put the same lens away for over a year, but took it out again recently and loving using it.

    So good you are enjoying not only shooting macro, but post processing also. Therapy 🙂ReplyCancel

Serenity Project – September

I am a lazy creature.  I love to put my feet up first thing in the morning with a cup or three of coffee and ease into my day.  This is especially true up at the lake, where I have the luxury of not having anything on the agenda.  My laid-back approach proves to be…

    The photo of the tree and the chair… just waiting for someone to sit down. That is beautiful.

    Your area of the world looks a lot like Kentucky!ReplyCancel

    Sue, you sound so much like me. I cherish my quiet, alone time with my cup(s) of coffee in the morning. It’s so hard to get going, knowing that something photographically wonderful could be waiting for you if you would just get moving! Exceptional images!ReplyCancel
