The Drop

the-drop-13.jpg

I once again am back to the water, I do love to photographer water.  I did get some ideas from this endeavor, so look for more water photos soon.

Today I was in a mood, feeling not quite myself or maybe truly myself, just unable to control my feelings.  I prayed, listened to music and then I thought …  I shouldn’t let my mood control my actions and this worked for the most part, unfortunately I did have a moment when my rudeness escaped, but luckily it was one moment and I was forgiven.  It really is hard not to let your current circumstances control your mood, being anxious or just completely freaking out.  I have no others words for tonight, I am tired and just need to close my eyes.

Good Night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Misty

The Mist

So I am pretty happy with this although not 100%, so I shall work at this one again.

Sometimes I wish we could just love one another, no strings attached, no criticizing, just love each other, accept each other and be there for each other.  What a wonderful world it would truly be … I think I shall try harder on this, be better for others.  So there you have it, what is on my mind this evening.

Good Night my beautiful friends or maybe it’s Good Day for you.  Which ever it maybe make life count, make others feel better of themselves, love them and one more thing … always remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!

The Look

The Look-6

Really had fun trying to get this girl in a fascinating lighting, seldom disappoints me.

I almost didn’t take a picture tonight, I almost didn’t post my blog, but since I have not posted anything since Thursday, I thought I needed to show some initiative, so there you have it, tonight’s picture.

I have been thinking about the mistakes we all make from time to time and day-to-day.  We all fall short of people’s expectations from time to time, after all none of us are perfect.  The thing is, we need to decided whether we can move on and forgive or do we hang on to this mistake and make them pay for it forever.   For me, it’s so many things that cause me to make so many mistakes …. I am currently working on my patience, controlling my sharp tongue and this forgetful brain of mine.  If I don’t write something down or put a reminder in my phone, you can pretty much forget it.  Well, we just need to help each other, forgive each other and not give up on our friends.  Not sure if that makes sense, but just some thoughts for tonight.

Good night my beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Eyes

The Eyes-4

Here I sit half asleep and working on yet another cat picture.  I thought the lighting in the eyes makes this one a little interesting, plus the color.  I am crazy about different lighting, but tonight I am just so darn tired.   I had some work to do, but I feel a sleep when I got home, yes I am that tired and I am patiently finishing this blog so I can go back to sleep.  Hopefully this weekend I shall get some rest and I will produce something other than a cat picture.  But the way I see it at least I am using my camera everyday and getting ideas, I just need to be a little more diligent at producing these images.  So be on the look out ….. wait I do believe I have typed those words before, hmmmm, well let’s just hope I follow through …. at some point.

Good night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!

The Peek

The Peek

Okay, yes it’s another cat picture and there is a good reason for it.  You see I need to focus a little more on some of my other projects, so every now and then a cat picture will be here, after all I have four of them and little Miss Josephine loves to have her picture taken, so yes a cat picture is an easy choice.

I have this really great thing I wanted to talk about tonight, but I can’t remember all the words.  When I am driving to my destinations in the morning I have all these brilliant subjects, both deep and meaningful.  I have the right words, but when I get home in the evening, I have trouble remembering.  I need to record my thoughts as soon as these precious thoughts pop into my head, so when I get home I can type them out.  So for tonight, I shall pass on my sage, at times useless advice and go to bed.

Good night beautiful friends.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

The Glass Tunnel

The Glass Tunnel-2

Okay, so this glass tunnel has some wax stuck at the bottom, but still pretty cool.  I have some really cool ideas I am working on, but requires timing and well, my timing is the greatest.

I have to tell you something friends, today was a serious character builder.  Equipment problems, slow computers and lots of students to photograph.  I stayed calm, for the most part, fought the good fight, kept my hot head in check and made it  through the day.  I can make quite a scene at times, just the other day someone told me “I could calm down now”,  she obviously has no idea the amount of crazy that can escape this old lady’s body and she is very fortunate that at that very moment I was able to control all that craziness.  So there you have it, another piece of the puzzle that makes up me, I am crazy.  Have a fantastic week my friends!!

Good Night, sweet dreams all that stuff.  Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive (like I did today) and smile!!!

 

The Bulb

The Bulb-3

I love photographing light of any kind, in this case a light bulb.  I bought this bulb today while shopping for another type of light bulb, I saw this pink bulb and just had to have to it.

I have so many good thoughts that come to mind through out the day, unfortunately it’s usually when I am driving and once the car stops the thoughts stop.  lol  I also sound so intelligent and always say the right things, but then once around others, it’s like the brain stops functioning.  Of course, fear is my driving factor in this … fear I will sound stupid, fear I won’t say the right words, fear of failure!!!! I sure there are a lot of us out there that have this unreasonable fear, but we really shouldn’t be afraid to fail.

That that sink in while you try, try again.

Good Night beautiful friends!!! Remember, be a blessing be blessed, keep it positive and smile.

 

The Moon

The Moon-4

The moon was sitting there up in that big old sky just waiting for me to take a picture and the trees are just framing it perfectly.

So I know this really extraordinary person, she is most definitely a go getter.  She is a great photographer, she makes t-shirts, tutu’s and so many other things.  She works hard to get clients in all her ventures and she makes me feel like I am standing still (which most of the time I am, because I really do very little).  With all her ventures she has going on, she inspires me to get up and run with my ideas and to work harder to achieve my dreams. There was two things I wanted to accomplish with this blog, to improve my photography and improve my writing skills, which I do not feel as though either has improved much.  I bought two books several months ago, one on how to improve my blog (to draw more folks in) and one on improving my writing skills (so I can entertain folks and hopefully find some enjoyment in my blog).   Well, they have set on the self since, the nice why to say it is “I am a procrastinator”; however, I think I am just plan lazy with a little bit of “I think I am to stupid to do any of it”.  So once again, I am going to attempt to push myself to do more, be more and accomplish more (or in my case … accomplish something), so watch out, again!!

Good Night beautiful friends!!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!

 

The Fork and it’s shadow

The Fork

So this isn’t exactly thrilling and spectacular, but I find it quite fascinating and interesting.  I have a few more ideas that I would like to try with shadows, but tonight I was tired, as always, so I went with the easiest tonight.

Here I sit on a Friday night, in my pj’s, watching  ‘I dream of Jeannie’ and looking through my photos on my computer ….. yes my friends, I lead an exciting life and I am totally happy.  I have a hubby whom I love to spent time with and of course four cats, whom love to play, love me and need a ref every now once in a while when they get a little carried away.  It’s really love how different we all are, how we have many different interest and things that we like to do.  One persons enjoyment may not be for someone else, but isn’t that what makes like interesting.  I am a home body, but as a seen from Facebook, that is not so for everyone and guess what …. that’s okie dokie!!!! So go out, have fun or stay home, enjoying the company of your family, which ever you choose, just be happy.

I am so happy, but so tired so I shall bid you all a farewell for the night, so to all those who read my little blog, good night you beautiful friends.  As always, remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile!!!

The Circles

the-circles.jpg

I was just having fun with my flash and a wine glass, since I don’t drink wine, I need to use them for something. lol

Fear, self-pity, defeat, anxiety, despair, hopelessness and resignation, for years (like 40 or more), I have struggled with these things. I kind of had a break through a couple of months ago and I was able to let go of the reason I let all these things creep into my life, however getting rid of all these self-destructive habits are hard to break. Along with this all these bad habits are things that make me try to make myself look better, such as trying to prove I know the answer, always, gossiping to make myself look better than others and so many other nasty characteristics … I know God loves me, but it’s still a struggle to love myself and not beat myself up for every mistake and misstep, but I am learning to let all that go and just learn from the experience and move on. Hanging on to the mistake and reliving it every minute of your day is also very destructive … Live it, learn from it and move on from it!!! 

Good night beautiful friends!! Remember, be a blessing and be blessed, keep it positive and smile.
