Something New...



I'm unveiling a tiny pet project I've been wanting to do for a long time, but I just never got nervy enough. Nervy or Nerdy? Pretty much both. Anyhoo...I have had this frustration lately. I like photography, I'm not a "photographer," but I want a gallery collection of my favorite personal photos that I've been collecting and holding on to for a couple of years...and I feel like an idiot for having a "photography" site. {and I never feel like an idiot, so it's not a comfortable 'place' for me to be, mentally, you know...} So I'm opening up sort of a gallery, if you will. There's no interaction there, just pictures.

Sometimes I think a piece of cake is the most beautiful thing ever, or a piece of fruit, so I'll photograph it and then what? And we all know my own obsession with this lady here who has my dream job! {well, and like a bazillion times more talent} Sometimes I'll see a building and go nuts over it, or a flower, or something very random like this one here. haha. So I blew the dust off of the old file folders, opened up my pictures, (copyrighted them, of course) and now they're up and out in the wide open! I'm inviting you to come visit, take a peek, and enjoy.

That's all I have to say. Now let's have a group hug...

Hi Dara! I totally did NOT receive your email - so sorry - and I've got my spam turned off so I should have received it. SO sorry. Maybe if you tried again, then we don't have to converse in this comment thing. I'll be looking for an email from you and I'll let you know if/when I receive it, K?!

Gorgeous photos, have you thought of making some into cards? I keep meaning to do this with my photography of flowers but have yet to find a company that makes them at a good price.

It's a beautiful site and the pictures are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it with us!

If you are ever wanting some inspiration or feed back from fellow photogs there are buttons on my blog under "need a creativity jump start?". They have challenges and opportiunities to link up and share. Everyone is always supportive and nice!
