This week our theme is the sky.
We went to the zoo this past weekend and I noticed a cluster of birds in the sky. They were all spiraling around and I wonder what was beneath them on the ground. What were they circling around? Or were they just soaring because they can?
I am looking forward to seeing what Melisa’s sky looked like this week! Click here to find out!
In the quiet space between the chaos of school and homework, work and meetings, appointments and obligations, beauty and serenity can be found on a walk around town.
Taking a walk with my family and my camera is my favorite way to spend a morning. It’s a great way for us to discover our city, whether we have lived there a month or a year.
I love taking photo walks. You never know what you will find.
You might even find beauty under I-35!
What else is summer for, if not discovering magic?
One of my goals with photography is finding a place of mindfulness, simplicity, intention and serenity with my images. I am thrilled to join the Serenity Project, a collaboration of photographers striving to capture a sense of peace and calm within their imagery. Please continue to follow the circle by visiting the talented Maria Russell and seeing what brought her some serenity this month.
We recently moved from Arizona to Texas. This is our 7th move since we’ve been married.
We lived in Arizona for 5 years, which is a very long time for us. We liked it there, and even thought for a time that would be “it” for us. Life had other plans as so often happens, and my husband decided to take on a few more years with the Air Force. Long story short, here we are. Same life, different city.
Arizona and the desert had its own unique beauty that I was fascinated with when we first moved there. I took tons of photos of cacti and desert plants. I hiked often (in the WINTER, as it’s too hot to do much of anything in the summer!) and loved all the hiking trails that were available. I took plenty of photos of my daughter on those trails and watched her turn from a toddler to a school-aged girl.
One thing Arizona made me appreciate, though, is big trees and cloudy skies. We have those in Texas! A change of scenery is always good for inspiration and I’ve really been enjoying exploring (and photographing) our new town!
I’ve been meaning to start a blog/website for a while now and with this change in our lives, now seems as good a time as any. Hopefully I will make it a habit and stick with it. My hope is to post words and photos and use this as a spot to keep my personal projects.
