As KI and I begin our summer travels, I find that my trips for the first part of the summer are focused close to home. My mom came to visit, and we love to sightsee. At 87, she still can get around and we trekked to a nearby garden to view the flowers and butterflies.
I love shooting flowers. It never gets old. Just looking at the photos brings a peacefulness and calm.
Yes, I have lots of shots of these gems, but seeing a bloom in a different light or setting is what makes photographing them fresh.
KI and I are spending our next few weekends on the Chesapeake and in Lancaster County PA-home of a community of Amish. Some of these weekends are spent alone to recharge ourselves and others are with friends. Either way we love summer and a chance to get out in nature.
I took “Muted Tones” knowing I had taken a similar one before. I liked the composition, but wanted to experiment. I like the tonal and saturation changes I made in editing.
I know some think editing is a “no-no”, but I strongly believe it gives me more creativity with my photographs.
Check out “Recent Photos”, a tab above. I am always adding photos there. Today I added a photo of cans, taken at the Museum of Industry in Baltimore. Check out how Baltimore has made some lasting worldwide contributions that even those as far away as Germany, Japan and Australia benefit.
