It’s not often I get my mug in front of the camera, but I know how much I cherish the pictures I have of my parents, so I try to remember to ask people to snap a picture here and there. This month’s blog circle challenge was all about getting in the frame — fitting […]

Please continue on through the blog circle, starting with Lisa Jones, to see her take on this month’s challenge. Make sure to come back and visit this same time next month for our […]

For this month’s exercise, I wanted to try my hand at food coloring in water in a clear, glass container. While I didn’t quite achieve my vision on these, I do love the abstract nature of the resulting play of dye and water. It was a lot of fun and I will certainly be trying […]
This month’s challenge was all about interesting perspectives. For this exercise, I grabbed my wide angle lens (16-35mm) and headed to Pike Place Market with some girlfriends.
