August 31st, photo of the day: peeping daisy

I’m not totally sure how I feel about this one.

On one hand I think I like it alright, and on the other I think it might be too hazy…


Also, I’m beginning to think I need a more personalized watermark. Yes, it’s my name, but it’s just that, in a cursive font, and that’s not original. I want to come up with a design or image that I can start using along with my name. Any suggestions? What is your watermark? Have you seen one that stuck with you?

July 22nd, photo of the day: Sweet pinks

Though there aren’t as many blooms out now as there were a couple months ago, if one looks closely enough there is still plenty to see!

I can’t remember what these are called, but I found them sitting demurely on the side of the trail in the Black River Riparian Forest.

It has been fun to be in a place for more than one season, and to be able to see the different seasons come and go. The last time Isaac and I visited here, there were Indian Plum bushes blooming everywhere. Now, though I can still find those plants if I look, they are no longer the main character in the landscape.

This was intended for Ramblings and Photos weekly challenge, but I missed the deadline.

Doesn’t mean I can’t share it anyway! :)

I applied a slight vintage action. I played with it more after this, and I found a few different levels of color, ranging from all b&w to full color, and this was my favorite.

What do you think?


June 6th, photo of the day: A Sweet Flower in B&W

Morning everyone!

I got a surprise email yesterday from DK Miller at TheShutterbug Eye Photography letting me know I won! I won the giveaway for one of her pendant necklaces. She was throwing the giveaway to celebrate her photo pendants being gifted to the press at GBK’s MTV Movie Awards Gift Lounge. Check out her blog at! Thanks again Diane!

If you want one for yourself, head over to Diane’s Etsy shop!

And here’s a little color to black and white conversion fun for you today on a simple little yellow blossom.

Good Afternoon!

Today has been rainy and gloomy (too bad we were out of town for the weekend when it was a reportedly “low 70′s”!) but my mom and I did venture out to Value Village where she found a few little toys that I stuck in my light box when we got home (might post some of those later)

Also I’m excited to announce that the flowers are starting to bloom in our area!

Here’s a close up:

I would like the stamen to be a little clearer, but this is what I get while shivering in the drizzle! ;)

I have added this to Wordless Wednesdays with Words:
