Serenity Project – August 2017

Welcome to our Serenity Project for the month of August 2017. The Serenity project is a collaborative photography project in which we want to share images that convey peace and calm.

“The skies and land are so enormous, and the detail so precise and exquisite that wherever you are you are isolated in a glowing world between the macro and the micro.” ~ Ansel Adams

Since it is still very warm in Arizona, and I don’t want to put my equipment in jeopardy, I am learning to shoot indoors. However, shooting indoors has taught me where the best light is in my house. I usually do not pay that much attention to the light in the home because I love to be outdoors. With this being said the light in our laundry room is better good for macro photography; who knew.

Here are the images I captured of a beautiful, tri-colored rose. This time I chose to photograph with my Tamron, 90mm macro lens, with different depths/close-ups.

Follow the circle to see what my wonderful and talented photography friend Kathy Roberts, of Kathleen Roberts Photography. Kathy lives in the beautiful area of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. I always feel serenity when I visit her site featuring the beautiful area she lives in. Go check our her work for yourself.

Thank you for stopping by today; until next time, keep calm and smell the roses.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by Kathy. Yes, who knew I could get some great light in my laundry room, with one small window. I guess this summer has stretched me, in a good way.
