Lavender Photograph: Part II Prints for Sale

16 Mar

These are the next three lavender photographs that are now available for purchase as prints in my spring collection. I particularly love these three photographs together as a set, but they  hold their own as well. These are a collection of photographs taken in southwest Washington state during spring last year.

I often wander my ne8ghborhood with my camera, especially in the spring when there are lots of new flowers out. On this particular  trip around my neighborhood I had the intention of heading to the local Camas Lily field to take photographs of the purple and blue flowers that were in bloom there, but along the way I got side tracked by the beautiful lavender with the bees working very hard to collect pollen. I ended up spending more time with the Lavender than the Camas flowers I had intended to photograph. 

If you care to see all of the photographs in this spring series now or to go purchase one you can find the link here. To see the first in the series, the lavender at sunset, the first post in the lavender collection here.

Fall Japanese Maple Photographs

10 Feb

At some point last spring I noticed the Japanese Maple tree in Camas, Washington by the library and grabbed my camera to go photograph it. When it came around to fall I figured it was time to take my camera back and take some more photographs of this same tree.

I often find I don’t have the time to sit down and look through my photographs,  but I have finally gotten to the photos I took of this maple tree in  downtown Camas, Washington in the fall.

I have seen photographs of the maple tree in the Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon that are stunning and I thought I was finally going to get there this fall to go photograph it, but the Garden was closed for the fall! Next year I hope! This tree is probably equally as beautiful, but it is difficult to photograph it without getting cars, street, or buildings in the background. Still I enjoyed taking the time to take these photographs.

Symmetry Photograph: Weekly Photography Challenge

23 Feb Photograph of ivy, taken in Portland, Oregon at Lewis & Clark College

I fell behind, again! At least the weather is making things easy on me though. The flowers in my area are starting to go crazy and are popping up like it is spring not winter. Really, daffodils, plum blossoms, crocus,  and even my azaleas are coming out already. Needless to say I am much more inspired to have my camera with me while traveling through Camas or Portland so I can photograph things! So keep your eyes open for flower photographs in the next few weeks/months. 😉

Although this is late to the game, I actually did take this photograph to represent symmetry during the week of the symmetry photography challenge put on by wordpress post a day, but due to my work schedule (I manage the online side of my husband’s Portland and Vancouver family law firm, Brasier Law), being sick, the kids being sick, and my computer needing a system update I just could not take the time to get the photograph from the camera to here until now. So hopefully it was worth the wait! 😉

So without further ado a photographic representation of symmetry! 🙂

Photograph of ivy, taken in Portland, Oregon at Lewis & Clark College

This ivy leaf was found at Lewis & Clark College, in Portland, Oregon. I was searching for a good representation of symmetry and this caught me eye.
