Serenity Project – June 2017

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

“A Flower blossoms for its own joy” – Oscar Wilde

About three weeks ago, I purchased the Lensbaby Velvet 56. Up to this time, I have photographed my flowers with my macro lens. However, I have seen so many of my photography friends using the V56. Granted that it started to warm up here in Arizona when the lens arrived, I still had to try it out. On the day he lens arrived, I purchased some Peonies. At first, I took the flowers outside however I went immediately back inside due to the heat. With a large window in our laundry room, I believe I created some beautiful and serene images; and the light wasn’t too shabby either. 🙂

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,

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.

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.
