Photo Friday – Ducks

Last weekend we had the good fortune of being able to hang out at a lake. Quality water time (on my part) and reading time (on Adam’s part) were spent. And to top it all off, just before we left we got to watch a very fun paddling of ducks swim by. Complete with a smaller paddling of not-quite-baby, not-quite-teenage ducks. Darling. And the brown and white duck just kept grabbing my attention. So I snapped away.

Photo Friday – Farm Fresh

Seeing Ben’s beautiful photos inspired me to get back on the wagon with photo fridays. And what better way than to capture the first delivery of summer produce from our local farmers’ co-op. With our cool, rainy season so far, most of the bag was filled with greens, but the items that caught my attention were the beautiful pops of red, pink, and purple mixed in. So this is really an ode to redish edibles. Redibles. 🙂

Ben Blood – Featured Northwest Artist

Ben Blood’s photography has a way of making me want to step into one of his pictures and experience the moment, but also wanting to keep my distance so as not to intrude on the beautiful scene.

Go ahead, read the article and peruse these next few pictures and then, when you can’t get enough, stop on by his site, BenBlood.com to see more of these charming moments. (P.S. Click on the images to make them bigger. Totally worth it.) 🙂

Tea – Eco Teas’ Holy Mate!

Confession, I love elephants. So I may have been swayed by the picture of the dancing Ganesha on this box when I purchased it. Okay, I was swayed by the elephant. You may also notice a theme with the calm energy. My last tea was stress relieving and rejuvenating. Yes, I’m busy and am trying to drink my way to calm. 😉

This tea tastes strongly of peppermint. With a hint of Continue reading

Photo Friday – Yummy

I like to photograph food. In fact I should probably write an Obsession Session on it. I take pictures of food all the time. Out at restaurants, at home, at friends’ houses. There is just something so magical about capturing a beautiful dish of food in a gorgeous picture. Maybe it is because it makes the experience last longer. Maybe it’s because it’s calorie free. 😉 I’m pretty sure it’s because food is such a multi-sensual thing and finding an angle where the dish looks beautiful is just a way for me to savor the meal in a different way. This last week I had the opportunity to go to the city for errands and (even better) to visit some friends (and a handsome new baby). It also didn’t hurt that I got to squeeze in a visit to my favorite restaurant. So of course I snapped away. 🙂
