Serenity Project - July 2017

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

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses.” Alphonse Karr

As it is still very warm outside here in Arizona, I have to photograph indoors. As I have stated before, it is not my favorite. However I am making the best of it. Surprisingly shooting indoors has opened up my eyes to see the light better and how it impacts my images. As a result I challenged myself to photograph the white roses in different ways by moving them around. Here is what I came up with with the same subject, three different ways. The three images have all been taken with the Lensbaby, Velvet 56.

Follow the circle to see what my wonderful and talented photography friend, Courtney Rust at "The Rusty Lens" 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.
