Spring is forcing herself into view and I am looking.
Their dirty little secrets are clean.
We all know this book by heart now. Thank you Godmother, Michelle.
My heart considers sea glass to be a message from my dad and this big one caught my eye on my run.
Still considers these treats.
Everyday I am thankful for this being just a walk from my home.
The great bathroom crocodile.
I miss our Japanese Maple that greeted us at the front door of our LA home. This one is too dear. Someday we will grow another.
A spring Sunday in 15 frames. Practicing my Two Role Rule (bare bone info: 72 frames, no in camera deletion, think and purposefully make the photographs), I shot just 72 frames for this 10 on 10 edition. I had a hard time narrowing my favorites down to just ten, so I broke the rules a bit and added a few more shots. It is just so nice to be back at this monthly project after failing August…consider the extra five images as credit from the missed month.
I am also finally getting the hang of the Nikon D3200 that I picked up in NYC. I love having a lightweight DSLR to record our daily lives and now that I am learning the quirks of this little machine, I feel like I can rely on it for what I need it to do. These were all even edited from JPEG instead of having to do any RAW processing. In addition to having less weight around my neck, I wanted to spend less time at the computer on my photo blogging. Check and check! So many times I have spoken with hobbyist photographers and moms who want to record their kids’ childhoods beautifully and in frustration they say to me, “But you have such a nice camera…” and to that I say, “This is the entry level Nikon.” You can do it too. In the next month or so, I will let you know more on how I can help you with that…get your “two rolls” ready to shoot.
The best part of this continuing 10 on 10 project is the amazing blog carousel you get to go on by clicking the links at the bottom of each post. It will take you through to some absolutely wonderful photography and each month I am honored to be a part of it all. You are in for a real treat as joining us this month with a post filled with delicious candy hued film photography is Wendy Laurel | Maui Family Photographer.
