Spring 2013

Black Bird

This one was taken from my own back yard. I sat and watched the father and mother birds bringing food to the nest inside a hollowed out part of the tree. Earlier in the spring I got to see them working to build the nest that is now filled with hungry babies. This picture is of the father who is carrying some red berries, just before going into the nest.

If I had to pick a favorite season I would have to choose spring. Each season is unique in it’s own way but there is something special about spring. The return of the birds and blossoming of flowers reminds me of the renewed hope that we have every day. Every day is a clean slate and we have a choice of what we are going to do with it.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

Self Portrait: My Camera & I

My Camera & I

I’ve been drooling over Canon’s EOS 60D and 7D for what feels like a few years now, promising myself I’ll be getting one real soon. But as time has gone by, I’ve realized that I still have so much further I can go with my good ol’ PowerShot SX 1IS. I’m also not quite ready to dive into photography for anything more than a hobby since my time is already occupied with other priorities. I will still be getting a new camera, just not yet.

For now, my CanonPower Shot is still my #1 tag-along!

Alphabet Photography

You may be asking, “What is alphabet photography?” But chances are, you have seen it before.

It’s the process of taking photos of everyday objects that resemble letters of the alphabet, then arranging the pictures together to create your very own personalized letter photo art. You can make them in color, black and white, or even sepia if you prefer. All you have to do is take pictures of random things that resemble the letter you want, or if you’re really smart you can think of something that actually has to do with the word you are spelling out.

It’s been fun doing these because the possibilities are endless! The few I’ve made have become good wedding, anniversary, and Christmas gifts.
