Sunday Post: Black & White

 

I have to say that Black & White Photography is my all time favorite.  Ansel Adams is my favorite black and white photographer.  If you are not familiar with his work, google him or stop by a local bookstore.  For this post, I am including one of my black and white digital shots.  I have quite a few black and white film shots that I have not taken the time to upload that I know you would all enjoy seeing.  For more information about the Jake Sprinter, Sunday Post and the Black and White challenge, click here!


Weekly Photo Challenge – Merge

20120818-165933.jpg

When I was younger I loved making/creating collages. I would sit for hours cutting out all of my favorite pictures and quotes from newspapers and magazines and then arrange them on a piece of construction paper or poster board. This weeks photo challenge – merged brought that memory back. The first thing I thought of was a collage. I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Branches in the sky

When I took this picture, my husband and I were sitting on a bench in the park. I looked up and the lighting was beautiful. For me, the simple moments mean the most. I hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by.

Ordinary Beauty


FREEDOM

Spicebush Swallowtail: Photo taken in Lakeland, FL in July 2012. My heart was beating what seemed a million miles per second when I saw this raving beauty fluttering around without a care in the world. It seems a butterflies job is to create beauty in the world, and if you really observe, to make us humans realize how free we really are.  It’s the internal freedom that I strive for!  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Thank you for stopping by!

Tia

Meet Tia. She is a healthy 12 year old feline with lots of personality! So lovable. I could not imagine my life without her.


Confidence

Taken in Tampa, FL. I was walking and saw this flower bush. It stopped me in my tracks for a few minutes. Mother Nature has that affect on me. 😉 I have always considered shades of red the color of confidence.
