President's Day, a day off from school, and a snowstorm
were the perfect reasons to try to capture some snowflakes.

Sub-frozen fun!

The highs yesterday were in the teens and it was windy. The stubborn Irish in me wanted to give frozen bubbles another try.  Dressed in layers, I went outside to find a location somewhat protected from the wind.  I was semi-successful and even tried again this morning with slushy bubbles (that's what happens when you leave them in the unheated porch) and managed to get a couple of shots of a bubble imploding on itself!

These would only stick on the hot tub cover-

These stuck to a black blanket-

Valentines Day

White Roses
for me this year.  
I'm a lucky girl, but not high maintenance.  Any kind of flowers make me happy.  I just like knowing that's he'd thinking about me!
I just love how simple, yet complicated, and beautiful these are.

P52-Weeks 1-6

P52 is a project I'm working on in 2016.
A group of ladies who took a composition class with me are joining together to continue to hone our skills.  Each week the group leader gives us a prompt and it's up to us to find a way to incorporate that prompt into our images. 

Week 1-A selfie

Week 2-Intentions
In lieu of a New Year's resolution, I promised myself to make every effort to learn to use my flash off my camera

Week 3-Routine
I'm beginning every day with a  short, inspirational passage 
and I end each day reading whatever happens to peak my interest.

Week 4-My favorite thing
My favorite thing(s) to shoot are flowers, with my macro lens.

Week 5-The four seasons-Part 1
Winter in my backyard

Week 6-Finding the Light
