Texture Tuesday

Short and Sweet

Yes, that’s me..but I am referring to February. The month of my birth… as of yesterday, 23,360 days youngish at heart. Today I am savoring the sweet day I had, blessings that came my way. Thankful to embrace the days of my life.

Blue Smiles Today

DSCN3890

Stephanie over at Life With a Yellow Bike inspired me to put air in Blue’s tires and go for a ride. The sun was out all day. The sky held a few wispy clouds and there was a slight breeze. Yellow bike has had a lot of adventures and Stephanie offers plenty of good reading about their outings. I highly recommend a visit, when you have some time. It has been brought to my attention that there are people here at WordPress that have needs. I won’t be specific but there are hurting hearts, there is illness and then there are needs that animals have too.. Sometimes I wonder how different our world would be if people truly looked out for one another.. May the  season of winter not be a forecast of what is in your heart, may there be plenty of sunshine and laughter to get you through to spring.

 

Desperate Measures

I have had a great time setting up props for experimental photo shoots. I have to laugh at myself for the following. The title of this posts reveals the extent I went to for the look. I am not a painter but I have a desire and I have some of the necessary tools. You can laugh with me, if you’d like…

Winter looms and for some it is no laughing matter. My heart goes out to all that are not seeing light on the horizon.. This time can test ones patience and as I have been experiencing a mental low and slight struggle, I realize that I am the one that has to take the steps to do those things that make my heart merry.. Letting my inner creativity come out to play makes my heart merry. Reading a good wholesome book makes my heart merry. Taking time to pray and mediate makes my heart merry. Letting go of what I have no control over will make my heart merrier… The four seasons will either bring out the best in us or the worst. That is life as each of us go through our own personal seasons. No one else can do it for us.. If we faint not we will reap so much. And as the spring flowers bloom, we will be right there amongst them, blooming and looking pretty good.

Texture Tuesday

Downloads128It’s Tuesday and time for Texture Tuesday. I am also using this for the Be Still 52 course. I started with my make shift photo studio. A large cardboard box and threw some burlap over it. For Be Still, this week, the highlight of our lesson was about  sidelight. Kim suggested that we set up near a window. I purchased a small table a few days ago. I will be able to move it easily and follow the light in our home. I don’t have a lot of options, so I am  working  with what I have. Well, we have windows but some provide better lighting than others.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

I look forward to the weekly Daily Post, photo challenges. For me it’s like going on a scavenger hunt through my files of images. I get to revisit places that I have been to. This weeks photo challenge is Symmetry. We are always free to use our own interpretation on the challenges which makes it interesting. I didn’t go back to far for these. They were taken on December 27,2014 at Deepwood Estate in Salem, Or. It is a beautiful historical home.
