On a photo walk the other day, I was greeted with this beautiful image. Lucky thing too because the clouds and wind quickly rolled in cutting our walk short! It’s captures like this that remind me of the beautiful outdoors around me. It’s easy to get normalized to your surroundings, so you have to make a point to hit that reset button every once in awhile.
Here is my latest reset button push.

This beautiful sunset seemed so much more magical in person than what my camera originally captured. So, to make it look more like how it felt, I made it to have a slightly painted feel to it. A dreamy touch on the already amazing canvas of clouds and ocean. Isn’t a peaceful scene? It sure was when I was taking it. I am happy that this image brings me back to that same feeling that I can visit at any time. This might have to go on my wall…

This chair sits alone in the middle of nowhere, decaying away into nothing. Its current condition speaks to its recent life where all value was lost by those keeping care of it.
But, I cant help but think about this chair’s times past when I look at such a contrast. This chair had a period in its life that saw gratitude from its owners.
Excitement when it was purchased.
Pride when the designer finished his/her design.
Relief and comfort when sat in after a long day’s work.
I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely young lady a couple of weeks ago. These are not her official senior portraits, but they are portraits…and she is a senior…so…. yeah. Anyways, it was a blast and I am happy to share some with you.

There was something magical about this sight to me. Maybe it was the fact that these children were playing carefree in the rain and this reminded me of a carefree time in my life. Or maybe it was the dramatic natural sunlight breaking through the forest canopy. It probably had a little bit to do with both of these reasons. Right when I swang my camera up to capture this photo, the young girl stared right at me, as if waiting for me all along. I had a pretty long zoom on my camera, so I wasn’t very close, which made all the more intriguing.
I received a new lens tonight and wanted to try it out! Below is a picture of a piece of wall art I have in my house and a self picture. I played with these and turned them into B&W and really liked the results! So, have a great day/night and here’s to having fun:
