Picturing the Rain

Working on a new background for a website so I was playing with a clear glass vase and a blue piece of construction paper. I sprayed the vase with water and the got as close as possible to focus on the water droplets.

Need a unique website with an artistic touch? Give me a call. I would love to help you out.

Thank you,

Playing with Long Exposures

The moon was at it's closest the other night, and though I was outside to capture the brilliance of the moon, Washington weather had a different agenda. As the clouds rolled in, covering the face of the moon, I began to look at the few stars that I could see. Then holding the camera as still as I could (it was too late to go and grab my tripod, maybe another night) I shot some short long-exposure shots. I am excited for summer now, and to get to play a little more with this concept once the skies clear up.

Thank you,

The Moon at Night, Is Big and Bright...but Behind Clouds

Big Bright Moon on Saturday night ... well at least bright, I am not sure it was any bigger than normal though it was nice and full. The clouds crept in too soon, so I had to settle for some eerie artsy shots.

Thank you,

Some of Your Favorite Things

I must thank you all for your patience this year. I promise I will find the ball at some point (it is probably lost under the couch). But until then, I figured I would pose a question. I was going through some statistics on my Etsy shop and wanted to see what the most favorited photographs were.

The top three:

The Pearl Nautilus: 16
The Dandelion: 10
AR Apart: 9

Though my Etsy shop does not contain all of my images, I want to know...

What is your favorite of my photographs, any of them NOT just the three above?


What would you like to see more of?

On March 23rd (aka next Wednesday) I will pick one lucky person to receive an 8x10 of their favorite shot, so spread the news.

Thank you again for reading,

Hello Again!

It's been awhile. How have you been? I have been busy with Ardent Life Designs, taking photographs of the new pieces that are created, and chasing after three little munchkins. Junktastic is coming up on the 20th of this month and I will be there with prints available framed and unframed in various sizes. I hope to see you there.

Starting next week, I will be posting a photograph a day and getting back on the blogging path.

Thank you for reading,
