Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Spring

Our prompt this week is “spring”.

Spring is meant for a walk in the garden. The photo above is one of my favorites. I sat in the middle of the grasses taking photos as the light wind blew the grasses around me.

Yellow flowers always brighten my mood.

The purple and pink flowers were gorgeous also.

Don’t these lilies look like they’re reaching out for a hug?

Pearls Creative Designs is my newest project. I’ve been playing with Photoshop and Illustrator making patterns and graphic art elements and have them put together in collections. I’d love it if you’d take a look!

Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists – Hello April

So it’s been awhile since I have posted – too many things going on and not enough time – but I was determined to post this weekend.  And Amy’s topic this week is definitely a fun one.

I’ve already gotten tons of pictures of  flowers the past week or so – reds, yellow, pinks and blues – that it was a little hard to decide which pictures to post but I finally decided to share these beautiful “Lady Bank” roses.

Several years ago my father had this huge Lady Bank shrub that totally claimed ownership of one side of his fence.  He gave hubby a cutting who then planted it right outside our back door.  I thought we lost it when Hurricane Matthew came through several years ago but it has come back beautifully and gets bigger and bigger each year.

There are so many different clusters of blooms and no two are identical.  Since they are located at the entrance of our breezeway, they move constantly so it takes patience – and sometimes a sweater!- to get the perfect shot.

Photo 101 – Day 8

Today, we are asked to capture the natural world with our cameras and to look for lines that lead our eyes to different parts of a frame.

The pollen has arrived!

Spring has officially arrived!  Well, maybe not by the calendar – it’s March 26th – but you’d think otherwise if you stepped outside.  Everything is blooming and you can see purples, reds, blues, pinks and greens everywhere.  And yellows – that seems to be the prominent color right now.
