Weekly Photography Challenge: Motion

28 Apr

Portland Ballerina in greenhouse A couple weekends ago I was able to follow along with another Portland photographer Gina Neal to photograph three ballerinas in a couple of Portland locations. We started at this green house located at the Pomarius Nursery in NW Portland.

I have to confess my camera has been acting up and this space was difficult for my lenses capabilities, but it was a lot of fun because everything these young women did was beautiful. Hopefully I will get around to posting a few more of the photographs from this day, but for now this one seemed to fit my needs for the weekly photography challenge motion. It could go along well with my 8 Week Black and White Photography challenge as well, but I am hopeful that I will add an additional photograph from this day to cover that one.

I hope you are having a good week.

Weekly Photography Challenge: Between… post 2

This week I had the privilege of photographing this sweet new baby. He was a bit older, but very cooperative. I thought this particular photograph fits well with the photography challenge this week, between:

Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Move

13 May

Hi there. I love the photography challenge this week, it is on the move. I enjoyed photographing some flowers blowing in the wind during a hail storm. I also took photos of the hail and rain, as well as our apple tree blowing in the wind.

I enjoy the abstract quality of these photos.

I have also included some photographs of this really exciting machine that we saw in West Linn. My kids loved watching it and my son really wanted to try it out.




Doesn’t that look like it could be a blast?

I hope you all have a good week.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

4 Apr

Here at Neskowin Beach my children stood at the threshold of the ocean’s bone chilling water, playing a sort of tag with it. Of course talks about ocean safety, concerning sneaker waves, occurred multiple times, but my anxiety at this game was still very high. Luckily there were many adults around to stay close (although I did a good job of keeping them out of the photographs).

The ocean’s edge is the threshold between land that is solid below your feet and a seemingly endless ocean that only appears to end at what looks like the end of the world.

I hope you enjoy the photos!










You can join the weekly photo challenge too.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

29 Oct



seneca3  senecasailboats  senecaclouds  seneca2  seneca1These are all photos I took during my trip to New York that I recently returned from. My Grandparents live on Seneca Lake, which is one of the finger lakes. They have a small sail boat that they still sail, at least when they have another person to ride with them.

I also visited Corning, New York where my other Grandmother lives, which is where the photo of the bridge was taken.

That’s all for now, but I still have a few more photos from New York and a few I want to share from Maine!
