Week 15: Anonymous

Week 15 of the 52-week photography challenge. Inspiration: Anonymous “This week’s inspiration is Anonymous. Interpret this how you wish.” At first I had no idea how to approach this week’s challenge.  After looking up the definition for inspiration, I found it in the third definition. “3 : lacking individuality, distinction, or recognizability” (Credit http://www.merriam-webster.com) On…

Week 13: New Beginnings

Week 13 of the 52-week photography challenge. Storytelling: New Beginnings “Our world is full of circular patterns; as some things end, others begin. Tell us a story of a New Beginning.” One of the first areas to pop when spring comes around.  This small area is always one of my first signals of the change…

Anticipating Spring

Drumming my fingers on my desk I look outside.  The sun is shining.  It looks warm outside.  But it is not.  With the average highs ranging from the lower 40s to mid-50s I am awaiting consistent temperatures in the 60s and 70s.  (All temperatures are in Fahrenheit.)  Over the last few weeks we have had…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Spring/Wood

This challenge was perfect for going out in our beautiful forest as spring starts its emergence.  Normally, I look for photos in my archives to go along with the challenges.   For this one, I took the Nikon out on a quest for spring/wood.  Easy to find!

Bent trees, an oasis, spring, space & time travel. March recap!

Hard to believe March has drawn to a close.  The forest is now waking up and literally changing before our eyes on a daily basis.  April will be a fun photography month! My absolute favorite tree on the property.  This is only the lower third.  I love how it bends out and again as it…

Changing Seasons – March

March has been unusually warm at times.  Spring is here! We spent an afternoon on our neighbor’s lake enjoying the warm weather.  Josie went for her first boat ride & played with his dogs + a wolf (all through a fence). During one of our hikes, Josie chased a raccoon up a tree.  He was…

Sustainable Sunday – End of Year 1

It has been almost a year since we moved to our little home in the country.  What a year it has been, full of wonderful changes!  After living through all 4 seasons out here, I realize how in tune we are with nature.  Each season brought with it so many new things to enjoy.  Spring…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Change

Although we are entering fall here in the U.S, I choose this photo from the spring for this week’s photo challenge.  With the “change” in the air it’s nice to reflect on a season past.  This past spring, these little guys (well their parents) were quite noisy as they “called” for mates.  Here are the…
