Show your colors!

Show your colors!

When I do a photo shoot on location or in the backyard, I always envision what I want to capture. I have a plan and a vision for what I want to accomplish in the photograph. I knew when I planned to photograph motorcycles that I wanted to capture one in black and white but leave something in color. I wasn’t sure what that would be but it was going to happen.

So I captured my vision in the photo above. I just wish everything worked out like that for me!

Here’s another fall photo – colors reflecting on the pond. I love this time of year when nature shows off!

Spring!

Just a quick post tonight. It was a beautiful spring day today. I escaped work during lunch and was able to capture this lovely photo of spring colors. You’ve got white, pink, yellow, and of course, green and blue!

The original photo I had planned didn’t exactly turn out the way I wanted it to soooo, I got this one instead. Sometimes it’s oaky that things don’t go as planned. But, I have to admit, I hope to try my original planned shot again tomorrow. And yes, it involves water!

We’re getting closer to the weekend! I’m excited to see my college girlfriends this weekend. They are the best friends ever!

Missing someone

It was  beautiful day here – warm temperature and clear skies. I got out this evening to photograph the sunset at Presque Isle State Park. I just had a feeling it would be a nice one.

Yesterday was Groundhog Day and Harry’s birthday. Harry was my step-dad and a wonderful husband to my Mom. He passed away about four years ago and for some reason we were all missing him yesterday. My Mom cried a lot and it was hard to know she was in so much pain feeling the loss all over again.

Sometimes I just look up to the skies and wonder if he’s looking down at us. I’m sure he misses us too and wishes we could all be together.

Part of loving someone is the risk of pain. The more you love, the more it hurts. Some say why bother . . . . . actually I asked my mother that just before she married Harry. I was worried because he was much older than she was. But Mom said if we can make each other happy if only for a short time, it will be worth it. They were together for 12 years and then Harry got cancer at age 89.

I’m glad he was in our lives. Harry was an amazing man – full of love, humor, and wisdom. He was also a WWII Veteran and had a heart bigger than any man I have ever known.

So, don’t be afraid to love someone. It may hurt when things don’t work out or they leave before you’re ready for them to go. But, living in the moment with that person is such an amazing experience. Live it up!
