Serenity Project - April 2019 - New Inspiration

Welcome to our Serenity Project for the month of April 2019. The Serenity project is a collaborative photography project in which we want to share images that convey peace and calm.

I did not participate in the March Serenity blog circle due to the fact that I was uninspired by my work. Nothing really resonated with me. I had to switch gears after Click Away in California, shooting in a big city and the desert.

About a month ago, I received my own little camera (I had borrowed my hubby’s micro-four-third for our weekly walks). I always wanted a Fuji camera, and on March 20th, Fuji released a new camera, the X-T30. Needless to say, I am still learning to handle this little piece of joy in my hands, but I am getting there. The only real complaint I have about it is that the quick menu button is located in an odd place. With this being said, the good outweighs that little issue.

I love the focus tracking (great for street photography), the colors, the electronic level, and so much more. I have been shooting a lot of street photography, and once I get really comfortable, I will share more about it. For this month’s serenity circle, I went to one of my favorite places to find serenity: the Riparian Preserve in Gilbert.

Here are some of my favorite images from last Friday’s outing…Yes, these images were taken within 30 minutes. Our Spring weather has been insane. I started off with a blue sky and fluffy clouds…30 minutes later I had to scramble to get to the car, dry.

Thank you for stopping by today. And now, please follow along this month’s circle by visiting my friend Eileen Critchley, Ohio Photographer, as she found serenity in the Spring in Ohio.

Until next time, find some serenity in your life.
