Serenity Project – May 2017

Welcome to the Serenity Project for the month of May. The Serenity project is a collaborative photography project in which we want to share images that convey peace and calm.

“Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower” ~ Hans Christian Andersen

One of my favorite things to photograph are flowers, macro style. When I put my macro lens on, there is a sense of peace and contentment. This past weekend I purchased some tulips. They have such grace and beauty about them; they make me smile. Here are some of my favorite images from the ‘session’ with them.

Follow the circle to see what my wonderful and talented photography friend, Carri Peterson is sharing this month.

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, keep calm, keep smiling, and let serenity be part of your daily life.

Until next time,

Macro Monday – Volume 35

Welcome to Macro Monday and can you believe it? Happy May!!! To be honest with you, I have no idea what happened to the first 4 months of 2017. I have shot more than ever before in 4 months. Not only have I photographed with my Lensbaby, but also with my macro lens. It continues to be my favorite genre since last year.

This past week, I purchased some beautiful purple tulips. I wanted to get different looks, with the beautiful light coming in on our patio, I believe I have archived my goal.

For more beautiful macro images, please visit my amazing friend and macro teacher, Tiffany Kelly of Tiffany Kelly Photography. Also, if you are on Instagram, in May Tiffany is hosting an incredible challenge and giveaway.

Thank you for stopping by today…until next time – keep smiling.

Serenity Project – April 2017

Welcome to my first participation of the Serenity Project. Up to the present time, I only followed this beautiful, monthly project. This changed last week when my photography friend Nadeen Flynn invited me to be part of this project. You may wonder what the project is all about. It is a collaborative photography project in which we want to share images that convey peace and calm.

With this project in mind, I want to share some of my favorite images I took over the past month. Given that the macro lens is on my camera 50% of the time, lately I have been using my Lensbaby optics more often. Together with my macro extender and the Sweet 35/50, my belief is that these images convey peace and calm.

This last image was taking after the Sunrise service at our church on Easter Sunday. The light coming in on the right of image, mesmerized me…

Until next time,
