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.

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.

A good sunny day for busy bee’s. Caught two different species working side by side on this brilliant yellow mid-west wildflower. You just never know what will catch your eye when on a walk about. Have a great day and thank you for visiting!  ~ terre

Hello on this lovely Spring day! At least it’s Spring for those of us in the northern hemisphere. Today, I took just a little short walk in my little patch of woods. There is nothing like nature to lift your spirits! I found these Spring Beauties, yes that is what they are commonly called and it is easy to see why. I hope you enjoy them. Take care and hope you too get out a bit and enjoy some fresh air. Happy Earth Day! Thank you for visiting today.

Change of Seasons

AmericanGoldfinch.tch c2020 (1)

I see you gazing into the silver light,

before taking flight,

Gold finches, collecting grassy threads

to build their nest,

a place to rest at night.

 

Hope you too are enjoying the signs of the change of seasons. Thank you for stopping by today~.    Terre’s Blog – Women of All Seasons

Hairy Woodpecker, USA (3)Here’s a little female Hairy Woodpecker, crooked beak and all, who has taken up residence at our house with her mate this winter. About anytime you look out you will see her. Have had other resident birds before, but not woodpeckers. Fun to watch and always learning. Maybe she had her beak where it shouldn’t have been? Happy day & birding~

Pileated Woodpecker ( Dryocopus pileatus )

” Hey… You need a bigger suet block! ” 

This big bird surprised us today with a visit to our backyard feeding station. He actually made it onto the suet block by wrapping himself around it. But he made it work. There were actually a pair of woodpeckers, but only one was tempted by the bird food.

Have a great day & thank you for stopping by today!
