52 Frames: Frame #5 – Dirty

Here’s frame #5 from the 52 Frames Challenge which is “Dirty”!

I hope you have a great weekend!



52 Frames: Frame #4 – Macro

Hi Guys!

I wanted to share frame #4 from the 52 Frames Challenge which is “Macro”!

Macro photography is the art of taking close-up photos that highlight details you may not catch with the naked eye.

I chose a tiger lily as my subject because it’s one of my favorite flowers. Macro photography was a great way to bring out the details of the lily (such as the curl of the petals, the colors, and the lovely spots).

Have you tried macro photography? If so, what did you choose as your subject?

52 Frames: Frame #3 – Hello From…Washington DC!

This weekend, I captured frame three for the 52 frames challenge. The 52 Frames community has photographers from all over the world and this week we were challenged to share our corner of it.

Washington DC is a great city! It’s known for it’s historic monuments and memorials.

I wanted to showcase a unique structure known as the Air Force Memorial. The memorial is a tribute to the service and sacrifices of the men and women of the United States Air Force.

The structure’s soaring spires reaches the height of 270 feet and can be seen for miles. A hidden fact about the memorial is that it emulates a famous maneuver by the US Air Force Thunderbirds known as the High Bomb Burst!

If you are ever in the area, I recommend planning a short visit here. It’s amazing to see this memorial up close!

52 Frames: Frame #2 – Red Snowbird

I couldn’t believe my luck this morning when I looked outside! There was an amazing winter wonderland scene and this magnificent, red beauty perched on my neighbor’s fence.

It took a little patience, but I finally got a shot of the little guy!

What does your winter look like?

52 Frames: Frame #1 – Self Portrait

Happy New Year!

A new year means new opportunities for photo challenges. I recently found a wonderful community of photographers at 52frames.com!

Each week, a new assignment is given that will challenge photographers to elevate their photography skills.

The first assignment of the year…Self Portraits! I typically shy away from being in front of the camera, but I knew it would be a great learning experience.

I took a lot of selfies, but finally settled on a simple self portrait to share on the blog that I liked.

I hope that you like it too! Have a wonderful week…

A Memento of Autumn

Today we got our first real taste of winter. The temperature dropped down to the 30s and we got sleet and snow .  Although the snow didn’t stick around, it’s a true sign that the autumn season has come to an end.

I’ll miss you Autumn, but I have this lovely memento to remember you. So long and see you next year!

Monochrome Monday: Old Town Firehouse

Happy Monday! 🙂
