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.

Angels

Angel

Angels have been mentioned throughout history and depicted in art, sculptures, stained glass and many other creative expressions across the millenniums. Regardless of your personal beliefs, they can be found in many cultures and religions. They are most seen as messengers or protectors sent to help you even when you cannot see them. They have been a favorite image to capture from the very beginning of my photography days. Since I can’t take a picture of a real angel, I capture them where ever I find them. I haven’t really shared them much with others until now. I hope you enjoy my collection of angels that I post. Here is the first one. I would love to hear from you if you love angels too. Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre

Photography ~ Places I’ve Been

Glasgow Cathedral or High Kirk, Glasgow, Scotland.

Here are some images from my 2016 trip through Scotland. I captured these with my old Nikon D50, which I have kept as my backup camera. I was so surprised when we arrived at Brig O’Doon… I thought it was only an imaginary place! I am so intrigued by the centuries and centuries of history when I travel in Europe and all the beautiful sites. I have no idea of who painted the man with the bird on the building or why, but it is just beautiful. If you know more, please enlighten us.

Photography ~ Indiana Fall Road Trip

Otter Creek Covered Bridge, SE Indiana, USABlack and White Photography, Fall, Indiana, USA

Caterpillar with Medium heavy coat

What a beautiful warm Fall day in Indiana! No problem with social distancing on this great day to be out. Just out looking to see what I could find and capturing more images towards my goal of photographing all the covered bridges in my state. Warm days like this is a true gift as we know there won’t be  many more before old man winter is blowing his icy breath. Maybe the not too heavy of a coat on this wobbling caterpillar is a prediction that this winter will be a more mild one. Hope you liked this little sharing of Indiana.

Photography ~ Places I Have Been

One of the things I miss most about todays world is the ability to freely travel. There is no better way to connect with other people than to share time, food,  and learn about their world.  It is so meaningful to share hospitality and just being in the moment with another within their own culture. I believe it is true that our world shrinks and can become more caring as we learn about each other’s culture and people.  While on one of my many walks,  I just happened to come across these beautiful doors while exploring about Rome. To say there is so much to find in Rome is an huge understatement! This is truly where  I learned and understood the phrase ‘Rome was not built in a day’.  Besides all the beautiful art, architecture, and friendly people… they have great music, wine, coffee, and make a great margarita to just sit and sip in one of their lovely piazzas. Yes, I enjoyed everything about Rome, including actually walking on the very same road as some of the greatest Roman rulers, and so much more. Oh, someday  to go again. ~

It’s fun to find something you didn’t plan on when you started out. Great Americana!

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 ~
