Flowers for you

Hello there.

For Valentines Day, Chris brought home flowers for Grace and I. Roses for me and tulips for Grace. We were both very pleased!

I took photos of the bouquets, of course. While I was photographing them, Grace stood watching.

I made the comment, ” Aren’t they just so beautiful? I wish they lasted forever!”

She looked at me for a moment and said nothing, as if contemplating my statement.

Finally, she nodded solemnly and said, “Yes mommy, that would be nice but then they wouldn’t be so special.” I was floored. She says the most profound things sometimes! She amazes me.

Anyway, here are the pics…a little late.

As usual, I couldn’t resist playing around with some textures. This last one is from Kim Klassen’s collection. Go check out her awesome blog. She has some amazing photography (gallery here) and lots of ideas and tips!

Have a lovely Tuesday.

I heart my camera

Hi there! Hope your Monday is going smoothly.

On Saturday, I took a fantastic photography workshop with Peter West Carey and I’m completely in LOVE with my new camera (now that I understand it)!  I look a little silly walking around the house and yard in my yoga pants and sweatshirt with my Canon around my neck but I don’t really care. Every time the sun peeks out behind the clouds, I squeal and run outside desperate to capture the beautiful light.  Here are some of my humble attempts. I’m learning and loving it.

This lovely camellia is the first bloom in my garden. I was so happy to see her.

My poor kitty has been very patient with me…

I will leave you with another pic of my beloved camellia. I played with some filters on this one. So much fun!

Have a fabulous afternoon and thanks for having a look.
