Do These Photos Make You Want to Go Here?

The topic of this post was supposed to be "What place do you want to visit based solely on beautiful photographs that you've seen?" I decided to turn it around and show you my photos of where I have been and see if they will entice you to go there as well. As a bonus, one of my photos includes a sun flare for the photo topic. Double score! These are from my last trip; my third, my husband's first....more

How Often Are You In Your Photographs?

OK, I was going to do the photo post of "My Love," but my husband didn't want to pose for a picture. So, I'm doing the question instead. As previously mentioned, I am not a big selfie fan. I am not in most of my photos, as I like recording my environment, looking for something new in the everyday; a new angle/perspective to something ordinary, new lighting situation, new way of looking at something....more

Photo: Far and Filters

Trying to get caught up on NaBloPoMo posts today. I'm combining two in one with this pic to show "Far" and "Filter Me This." This glass block wall flanking one side of the sidewalk with trees on the other side seems to go on forever! Used the VSCOCam Sepia filter....more
