Photography ~ Finding Inspiration

Macro Photography

If you are a creative type, where do you find your inspiration? Who lights or inspires you to study in a certain direction, technique, or subject? One of my inspirations are the large flowers painted by Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986), artist and ‘Mother of American Modernism’.

“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” ~ (Georgia O’Keeffe).

No… I cannot draw or paint and I am not anywhere in comparison to O’Keeffe’s art, but I do have a camera and the desire. She inspires me to keep working on my images, including this one of my many flowers. There are always such surprises and beauty found in their structures and essence. Like many other artists, progressive improvement is the end goal throughout it all and to keep working at it, no matter your medium.

Terre’s Blog – Journal

 

 

Today is Friday and moving right along with the seasons. This is also my first journal entry in Terre’s Blog – Women of All Seasons. The world still remains primarily in shutdown and non-travel mode which is hard on everyone. Being home more though, has probably put me more in touch with my local nature, more so than other years. We even noticed the day that our tiny hummingbird friends took off for their sunny, warm vacation lands. They were so very entertaining as they guarded their feeders and sometimes flew up looking in the windows.

Even though I love Fall, the changing color of the leaves, pumpkins, apple cider, and warm sweaters; I find it bittersweet to say goodbye for another year to the gifts of this summer. This summer was the first time that our tomatoes did so good that we actually had green tomatoes on the roof of the house! We had never seen that ever here in Indiana. But I guess these gifts  gives us more reasons to look forward to summer again next year. When it comes to Fall though, I don’t think I would make a very good tree. For I’m sure that I would have an argument about having to change colors knowing that I would have to then be bare, even if I would be beautiful first.

On another note, I still keep plugging away with my blog, though I haven’t been able to figure out SEO and some of the analytics that just don’t make sense. I so appreciate all my followers and readers that have been hanging in there with me on this learning journey as I try to get better.

Here are just a few images of the last of summer. Enjoy ~

Gathering pollen,

buzzing bee’s searching, busy.

Blossoms stand waiting. ~

The Gardener’s Surprise

Terre's Blog - Women of All Seasons (11)

I may not know what a dahlia be,

even if the package lists you as that to be,

But a beautiful, huge lily you are,

it is plain to see … even to novice me. 

 

Thank you for stopping by today and letting me share my garden surprise with you. Hope you are having a lovely day in your neck of the woods on this great planet of ours.
