Thursday, November 17, 2016

Good gracious where is November going?! I have not purchased a single gift, prepared for Christmas cards, planned a single meal, or even managed to take down all of the Halloween decor. I can't begin to think about how I will get it all done. I need it to be September again.

On that note, I also have very little to show in the way of an effort to photograph my own life and family. I really am feeling burned out and pressed for time with work, like constantly living in a compression chamber, and I can hardly think of picking up my camera for personal reasons. When I actually think about this, it makes me very sad because my children seem to be maturing at the speed of light. I just can't seem to keep up with it all.

Anyway, I scraped together a few random images for this post. I saw the moon coming up as I was heading home after client session and I stopped for a moment to try to capture the scene. I played with some long exposures and tried getting light trails from the passing cars. I didn't have a tripod so they are a bit shaky, and the highlights on the moon are terrible, but it was fun to just play for a minute. Despite their poor technical merits, I still rather like the effect. Other randomness includes a simple fall leaf snap from walking in the neighborhood (with a bit of a melancholy feel to the edit - seemed appropriate for my mood), our pup Bella who will turn 8 in a couple of weeks, and my silly gal - my constant companion when I'm not off shooting sessions.








Thank you for visiting! Link up your posts below and have a wonderful weekend!

All these images are so impressive. The landscape with the super moon peeping out is fantastic. The effect caused in the first image is suggestive of fleeting time. The girl is beautiful. Hope you can relax yourself before your next work.

These are fabulous shots for the week. I hear you on how quickly it all goes by. I have not done pics of the kids since last year for the card. Since then we have one out of braces, one in braces, the youngest turned 13 & my son not only graduated HS but also turned 18 & my middle one is turning 16 & I didn't document any of it. I'm failing in that department & life is passing my by as I work in this studio 14 hours a day. Sigh...

Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving my dear friend - love ya dearly!

Lovely photos - thank you for hosting - being a blogger can be tough sometimes, when we don't feel taking photos or painting or whatever....

Hang in there!

Woooh, look at that light trail shot, a stunner. If there's technical imperfection in your shots I don't see them.
