Snow Day!

About 6-8 inches of snow blanketed our neighborhood last night. Today was a beautiful day for a walk in the snow, with some playfulness along the way. The contrast of the white snow against the dark bark always draws me. These are just a few images I captured.

Dragonfruit, Studio Style

One of my Christmas gifts was a small set of LED lights I can use for small studio lighting projects. Like this Dragonfruit. A little table top setup with a black cloth and two very bright LED lights, shining on the Dragonfruit to provide drama, detail and color.

This is also my January 1 image of A Picture a Day for a Year. 

Mama said there’d be days like this

Month of Mornings is a great exercise for a photographer!

Today, however, the skies darkened, the rain began to fall, the thunder was loud and the lightening flashed. 

The song “Mamma Said” popped in my head and I began singing, reminding myself that there will always be days like this, with imperfect light, bad conditions, no blue sky, and shadows everywhere!

There is Beauty in the Common wherever you look. Did I capture “beauty” in this image?
