Spring Therapy 2

Here are some more images from the tulip shoot
that I called spring therapy.

Hope your world is sunny and warm!

Through the Lensbaby Blog Circle: February

Stems cut, flowers arranged...
glancing downwards -
wow, clippings!

Loved the colors, shapes, lines, and randomness of them.

Have I told you that roses are one of my favorite flowers, 
and our daughter's middle name?

Spring Therapy

What do you do when your world is painted with a tube of dull and 
the temps outside are frigid?

Seek spring therapy in the form of tulips?

Hmmmm...sounds good to me!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Urban Stories

I've been using the cold, grey days of winter to catch up on some photo editing -
street photography, life in motion.

As always, I'm interested in design, creative framing,
 and storytelling juxtapositions.

Happy creating to you!

Sometimes we find beauty in the most unexpected places...
beside the garage, within the rocks -
a fresh dusting of snow upon autumn remnants. 

Happy creating to you!

Through the Lensbaby Blog Circle: January

Shall I tell you that the temperature was frigid,
the wind pelted stinging snow crystals unrelentingly at a rakish angle,
plus my parka and a ton of winter clothes made me look fat?

No, forget I mentioned any of that.....
instead just imagine a winter day upon a hill filled with snowy wonder
and a touch of Lensbaby magic,
please do!

Happy creating to you.
Now head over to my friend, Caroline,
 for some wonderful inspiration!

Shadow Play

Fixating on somber winter light, dancing shadows,
 minimalism, and abstract design today.

A fanciful world of softness, strength, curves, and lines.

Happy creating to you!
