This site has been in transition recently. My photo journey has been in flux, as well.
I’ve been doing more flower photography lately. This is my favorite shot from this week, from that group of shots. This is the planter by our mailbox.
I love all kinds of photography. However, I had stopped doing photography here at home. I had stopped just getting the camera out to catch candids of the kids. I had stopped shooting in that lovely ACROS black and white simulation I love so much.
My intent is to focus more on the fine art side of my photography. I found that side of myself early in my photo journey and I’ve ignored it over the past couple of years. In these last few weeks, though, I’ve re-discovered that nature and still photography is a balm to my soul.
My hope is there will be limited prints, probably on canvas, of a lot of this work available at some point.
This week has been about getting on a regular housekeeping routine. I know that’s not exactly photo-related, but it is life-related. I instituted a laundry day and it has changed the way I look at housework, for the better. We could have folks show up right now unexpectedly the whole house is in great shape (aside from the garage, which is in flux as we take trips to Goodwill). This is a much-needed change for the better and we are all enjoying it.
Occasionally, I like to pull out the manual focus lenses. My favorite is a legacy lens from my parents– the Minolta 50mm MD Rokkor-X 1.4. It’s so much fun to slow down and really think about the shots I want, as well as choose precise focus points. This lens, aside from my Fuji 35mm f2, is my favorite of the bunch for fine art-type shots.
Happy Easter, everyone!
