Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

I thought I’d respond to the Weekly Photo Challenge – Ambience. This photo I took at a wedding that my husband shot this past summer and I particularly like the atmosphere that it captures – a fun celebration, with a down to earth feel. This post is also part of a series, February Beautiful. 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

I began the afternoon grousing about the snow, the cold, and the general lack of…something different, anything new. Inspired by this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge (Fresh), I hunted through some old photos. What a glorious and unexpected journey through the seasons; now I’m celebrating the way that a little fresh perspective can make a … Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

Happened to come across a recent Daily Post Photo Challenge (Orange).  Went on a hunt around my house and found these treasures. What an enjoyable way to spend a waning afternoon, trying to notice and capture what’s around me.  View other responses to this challenge here.

“Dear Jenny, just a thought, but what if you spent some of the time talking to God that you spend writing to me about boys in your class?” Those words, penned by my camp-counselor-turned-pen-pal, set me on a course of talking with God that has spanned my life to this point. As I grew to … Continue reading

Brown, an invitation

Brown, an invitation

Wedged in between the pristine beauty of winter and the glory of spring is a time that  we in New England like to call Mud Season.  Gone is the white beauty of snow; the bursts of life and color have yet to make themselves known. The brisk excitement of winter has become wearying, and the … Continue reading

Self-Care

Self-Care

I am following along in a photography course that Ian sometime teaches. This particular exercise is to reflect on your own habits of self-care and take pictures of what makes you feel loved, relaxed and happy. Fresh flowers soothe and inspire me – in vases, one bud in an old honey bottle, anything green from my yard … Continue reading

Inspiration

I am unofficially following along a photography course that Ian is teaching. This exercise: create a mood board and photograph what inspires you.  Since I actually just cleared my desk of nearly everything in my attempt to simplify during Lent, it was fun to pull things out for a review!   Here are a few other inspirational things in my … Continue reading

in the corner

I’ve so been enjoying the February Beautiful series, I decided to keep it going with Lenten Beautiful. This photo is from some prayer time at my church (a 24/7 vigil between Ash Wednesday and First Sunday of Lent).
