My words and my pictures. All I have


Beauty by any other name…

Yay! Short week and long weekend for me!

It’s been real hard this week to stay focused on the good. I’m tired, teachers are insane, and I’m not a huge fan of winter’s browns. But then, I wake up and Nature has a beautiful gift for me to delight in and take pictures of, and I realize how lovely it is to live in a small city, I get my college stuff done and feel accomplished…

Mostly, it was the pictures I took this morning. Which reminded me of why I fell in love with photography; it can change a whole month of craziness in just a few minutes. So tonight, I go to bed a happy person. And for the first time in my entire life, I know for sure that happiness is there for my taking whenever I want.

Tomorrow I’ll edit the pictures that made me so happy today and post them, and for now I leave you with some of my project shots. Enjoy, and be happy!


Dahlias and dreams come true

Life has been kind of hectic this week, but luckily this weekend is a long one, and it started today at 5 p.m. for me, so I’ll have plenty of time to rest, take new pictures and edit old ones.

I’m planning to go photoshooting with my father tomorrow morning; he said he’s spotted a couple of possible pictures on his way to work, and we scheduled a visit as soon as we are free. I’m so happy, people, I feel like dancing and singing. What’s better than going on an adventure with your camera?

There are lots of little and big signs happening in my life, and I’m convinced the universe has my back. Photography is my calling in life, and no matter what challenges are thrown my way, nothing will stop me.
