Ground: In Black &White

How I do adore nature! Part of my fun in photographing nature is to look for the different perspective in what I see around me. Maybe you’ll find that little spider crawling on the flower or that beautiful burst of color in the center of the fall leaves. So Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is ground. ¬†The first of the photos is one of the beach in Maui ¬†where in the early morning I found a child’s footprints in the sand. The second of the photos is a fall photo with some leaves and rocks. The third of the photos is where I took some liberties with the challenge. Since we love to snorkel the “ground” becomes the floor of the ocean. So with that in mind I am sharing a photo of the ocean, also in Maui, which has one of my favorite little creatures in it – an octopus. I hope you enjoy!

Bird, Beach & Clouds a winner in Contemporary Art Gallery exhibit!

So excited to share my joy with y’all! I placed 5th in the Contemporary Art Gallery All Women exhibit for February!

My photo that placed was Bird, Beach and Clouds. It was taken in Cannon Beach, Oregon of Haystack Rock back in November of 2010. It is one of my favorites – though most are my favorites….
