I like to dabble in photography. I really enjoy it and there are often times that I am proud of the pictures I take. I am far from a professional, but I still find joy in it. I honestly want to take a course or something in it, if I find the time. Photography is on my long list of hobbies. Who has time for those right? I want to find more time, but everyone knows how that goes.
There are times when you are lucky and get exactly what you are looking for and you find amazing beauty around you that you had not seen before. I was pleased in the picture below to see a bee flying around. I had no idea that I had captured it, glad while I was taking the picture I didn’t notice it, but now looking back I think it adds something to the image, just like in life when we might have missed something but then take a closer look.
For this weekend, I will share some of my favorite pictures I have taken of flowers. The saying “Take time to smell the roses” is so true (though they don’t have to be roses). With these images and words, just remember that life moves so quickly and we must always remember to take time out to do what we love and hopefully share that with others. Let our words, lens or artistic ability inspire and capture such beauty so that others can’t help but be moved. This world needs all the help it can get when it comes to inspiration and beauty. Share yours with the world, whenever you get the chance!
I have been looking and editing my photographs more lately. I set up a Fine Art America site even to promote and try and sell couple of my prints. You can find the link here for my Fine Art America site. I also started a Flickr just to promote my images more. I guess like anything else, you just sort of have to get yourself out there and see what kind of interest you can draw. I feel like I have many different talents and abilities and I am just now trying to see what it all can get me.
Yesterday, I posted about my new site follow the link here: Fine Art America Site. With Valentine’s around the corner, I created a discount code: ASGTXL which is in effect through 2/15/14. You can take $5.00 off your purchase.
Here are only a few of the ones I have:
Be sure to browse what I have, share if you think others would be interested and be sure to let me know what you think.
It’s the place so close to the water, that breaking point for the waves, the place where it is all contained, the shoreline. On the shore, you get the best of both worlds. You see the beauty that is before you as well as appreciate where you are. There are times that you can see your dreams or be in the midst of all you want, yet you forget to take time to appreciate it. The shoreline is the perfect example of remembering to do this. This is where we stand to survey all that is before and behind us. We see all that could be to come and remember all that is behind.
Short and sweet today. Remember to enjoy the sunshine and the beauty of the day.
