Reflections Of The Day

This was taken the night of the tragedy of Newton Shooting in Newton, CT. I will never forget standing in my driveway and marveling at the beautiful sky. Wondering how can a day finish with so much beauty, but have had a horrible tragedy unfold that day. When I went to editing the photo, my feelings where to add a reflection of the trees and the sky. We have to reflect and think about how lines have blurred in our world. The stark reality of our world is with lightness, there is darkness around. With beauty there is a darker side to our world.

Reflections Of The Day

Photography Friday

So here is the deal. I would like to make a commitment to myself and post some of my photography every day. Knowing that I am a stay-at-home -mom with a brand new puppy, I am forget at times. I would like to give it a try. A saying that has been heard around my house recently is ” You won’t know unless you try” . Here is me trying. This Friday is all about flowers.

Please click on each photo, I have a  neat description about where I took the picture.

Spring is here, new beginning for all. I took this photo at Epcot’s International Flower & Garden.  When I saw this Monarch Butterfly, it inspired me feelings of new beginnings, spring celebrations, and an inner peace and happiness.  I felt that this picture was perfect for different celebrations.

I am always working on branching out into the blending modes and layers of photoshop CS 6. I just purchased the book “The Hidden Power Of Blend Modes In Adobe Photoshop” by Scott Valentine. I just learned about taking a photo and creating a graphic illustration. I hope you all like it! I am selling this photo on an iphone 5 g case and stickers from Zazzle.

Spirals Of A Red Rose

Spiraling inward to the heart, tears of frustration, pain, joy.  That is what makes someone beautiful, the presents of perspiration.
