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.
The holidays are about being together with those you love. For me, this picture includes two things I love penguins and the idea of being together. I know that there are those who are far away from their families this holiday season, but for me it’s all about being connected and near those you love.
Here in Texas, at least where I am, this is the only snow I get this year. It has been cold, which is nice and helps with the season, but snow is very rare here. I have seen it snow here, even on Christmas eve one year, but those years are few and far between. I know that snow doesn’t make it the holidays, just like anything else it is what we make it, but there are times that I wish I could sit in front of a fireplace and get cozy with the one I love.
It has been quite a few months since I have traveled anywhere, but on my last trip I managed to take this picture out the window. I find comfort by the water and in the air. I love the open and vastness of the reach of it all, like I have heard it said, it seems to breed a dreaming spirit.
Cedars just embody the idea of the holidays, although not so much the rain dripping from the branches, still it has a holiday feel. When we think of Christmas, we think of the trees, stockings, presents, hot chocolate, family, friends, for some Jesus (depending on religious beliefs), and food!! Just like any other holiday, Christmas has become completely commercialized. All over the world it is celebrated in different ways, but if nothing else, it’s something brings us together.
