One of the things I absolutely love about this time of year is the glow of Christmas lights.  With the house decked out like this there are many opportunities to take a sparkly photo here and there.  These taken with the Lensbaby star aperture and modified with a sepia setting.  Looking at the current Lensbaby apertures, […]

I took another trip up the mountain yesterday to pick greenery for the Pacific Cancer Foundation event which is scheduled for this Saturday.  Taking my time, I also was sure to get in a few shots of this majestic place.  Ooh how I wish I could take all of you here… the cool air… the […]

I took a walk in the woods today.  I was on a mission to collect samples of greenery in preparation for an upcoming holiday event later this year. I was all alone up there in that forest, surrounded by evergreens, eucalyptus and various native shrubbery.  A strange combination I know, but still my walk was […]

Ken’s quilt is coming right along!  I’ve quilted it in an echo motif with the lines of stitching being about a half-inch apart.  This type of quilting will give it a nice pucker when the quilt is washed.  The cotton batting should shrink up just enough to give this one a cozy drape.  I also […]

Goodness, I love this app!  It’s called Pano and it transforms my phone into a panoramic camera by splicing together a series of photos taken from one vantage point.  It’s so easy to use, I simply shoot, rotate, shoot, rotate… and so on.  Check out this amazing photo I took yesterday while watching the setting […]

First, I’d like to thank all of you who have been kind enough to leave comments these past days.  Venturing into new territory can be frightening and it helps to know that despite my trials and tribulations, you are right there with me urging me along.  I’m taking a little bit of a break from […]

On a recent walk I looked up and saw a most glorious site… it was the color chartreuse, one of my favorite all time colors were contrasting brilliantly with a cool blue sky.  I’m not kidding… this photo was not enhanced in any way… it was really that beautiful. I’m so energized by these colors, […]

{Bokeh, my Thursday routine, where I continue to explore the aesthetic quality of the blur.  Soft and ethereal, I’m interested less about the subject matter and more about the feeling these photos elicit.  Come visit my flickr group, Bokeh Beauty, and feel free to share your own take on this delightful way to shoot!} Sunlight […]

Weekend View… a snapshot or glimpse in time of something from this week worth remembering. This time its fresh eggs from a neighbor’s coop.  It’s a simple thing really, walking up the street and handing a lady and empty carton and a few dollar bills, but in return I’m rewarded with not only a beautiful […]
