A good lesson learned for this new photographer and that is some of your favorite photographs are taken at the most random times and locations. This photograph was shot while in a drive-thru line at a Dunkin’ Donuts for some much needed coffee on my way to work one morning a few weeks ago. I reviewed my results just recently and was pleasantly surprised. I hope you are as well.
The Venice Symphony Pops Orchestra played, students sang, guests dined, the International Space Station flew above and fireworks decorated the evening sky. As I was photographing the event, I zoomed in on the musicians and low and behold, the S Curve was staring me right in the face.
This event is the SCF Foundation’s annual fundraising event!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to become an author. I would hear particular character conversations play in my head and think which chapter it would either create or be a part of. So many of them came from life’s magical moments as they transpired right in front of me. I would envy authors being interviewed by host members from Good Morning America, The Today Show or my favorite weekly show CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood!
I did start a book called Running on Faith with approximately eight chapters written. Who knows, maybe some day I’ll actually finish it but since I’ve taken up photography, I’ve realized this to be my true inspiration!
The moth on the “book cover” was a photo taken outside the entrance of my office building. I brought the image into Photoshop and played with some of the filters. Hope it’s a good read! 😉
I find such peace driving anywhere south on a day off. No deadlines, no details, no tight schedules, no meetings, or no phone ringing, dinging, beeping or buzzing. My new puppy and I were lucky enough to witness this beautiful sunrise last Saturday morning down near Venice.
It was a quiet evening at home bellied up to a cozy candle and the warmth of my fireplace application on my i-Pad! The wine is being poured.
This week’s theme was a ton of fun!
My family and I were on vacation in upstate New York in the finger lakes region celebrating our traditional summer, family vacation. I mentioned our theme for this week’s challenge and shared with them the song title I had selected and the idea I had to help capture it. They all jumped right into “the kitchen” to help me line a nearby country road with borrowed baking equipment from my mother’s kitchen. As well, my niece helped me shop for the miniature baked pies and ice cream cupcakes that we then brought home and decorated with pink sparkles for additional color and fun and of course, later ate as dessert for our last summer family dinner.
We hope you enjoy these fresh baked goodies as well as this great classic by Gerry Rafferty. Until next week, keep clicking!
