Macro Monday ~ Volume 16

Welcome to Macro Monday – Volume 16. For starters, I did it again. I wanted to stay away from red flowers, however the daisies were too beautiful to pass up. So I worked with shadow and light this time around. The backside of the flower is very interesting and more yellow than red.

  1. Beautiful Iris. I just love this perspective looking at the underneath side. Beautiful textures and I love the light and shadows. 🙂

Print Your Memories

Last year, my mom passed away after she suffered a stroke. Even though I live 6,000 miles away, we were always close. It broke my heart when I visited my mom the very last time. Just 8 months before we celebrated her 75th birthday. Thankfully I was there for that celebration. During that visit I mentioned to my mom that I only wanted one thing. Her photo album that contained photographs of her youth.

Little did I know in 2014 that it would be the last time I would see her laughing. I cherish that short time I had with her. And of course I took photos. Now over a year later, I am starting to scan the photographs of my mom for my sister. Today I want to share some photographs of my beautiful mom and my handsome dad.

The first photograph is of my mom sitting on a Vespa. She was always smiling, and that is what I remember most about her.

The next photograph that I scanned, is showing my mom as she was – beautiful, young, and full of life.

And the last photograph that I have scanned thus far is of my dad. He was stationed in Bodenteich as a border guard when he met my mom. He was so handsome.

You may be wondering why I am sharing these. It is a reminder for you to print your memories. Your children will be thankful one day that you did. And I practice what I preach; I print my memories. The below images were printed at Artifacts Uprising.

Until next time…keep smiling 🙂

Macro Monday ~ Volume 15

Welcome to Macro Monday ~ Volume 15. This time I wanted to share something different. I truly believe that part of my photography is to share part of me and who I am. During the winter month, I enjoy a great cup of tea. Loose tea especially. You may think that the writing is incorrect. Not so; it is just the German word for tea. 🙂
