I love the look of photos when taken during the 'golden hour' of the evening while the sun is setting. These flowers look especially beautiful with the sunset glow on them.
I think I'm prepared for whatever snow storms Mother Nature has planned for us this Winter...
Blank pieces of paper are so full of promise. So much space to write thoughts, ideas. To draw or doodle something unique. Yet quite overwhelming too! I love the look of empty clean pieces of paper and the possibilities are endless to what will be written or drawn. And yet I am often overwhelmed with … Continue reading Overwhelmed by blank pages

I absolutely love paper crafts! Ever since my friend introduced me to the world of scrapbooking, several years ago, I have gone 'nuts' on card making as well! Currently, I have so many 'scraps' lying around from several years' worth of card making. I have made several hundred cards for friends, family and OperationWriteHome.org. If … Continue reading My Personal Card Challenge

as a photographer who loves to capture moments in time which pass in a blink of the eye, there is one thing i absolutely hate. it's when people run away from me and my camera or say 'don't take my picture.' how many times have you heard that? children love the camera, it seems. they … Continue reading please allow me to photograph you!!
with all of this talk and media attention on the upcoming 'zombie apocalypse,' i just have to join in. you see, last evening we had no electricity for several hours. this spanned a very wide radius (over 20 miles around) and noone has an answer. there were sirens alarmed but we don't know why. it occurred to … Continue reading zombie apocalypse
