Wow! I can’t believe we’re at the end of 2017.
There were many times when I wished I could get out with my camera more. However, when I review the year through photos, I’m amazed at all the photo ops I experienced.
A few highlights included learning more about studio photography, capturing a big wheel bicycle race, exploring the metro tunnels, and photographing holiday lights.
Here are just a few of my favorite photos from 2017. I hope that you enjoyed them too!
Here’s my submission for this week’s photo challenge, “cheeky”.
I really had to put on my thinking cap for this challenge. After searching my archives, I discovered a picture of Julia (Stranger #31) with her beautiful daughter.
Her daughter’s cheeks were so adorable and it made my heart melt. I’m so glad that I found an opportunity to share this heart-warming photo with you.

It’s been a long time since I’ve experimented with long exposure photos. Inspired by this week’s photo challenge, I went into the city with the goal of capturing light trails zooming around corners. It took some patience, but I walked away with a few photos I really liked.

Last October, I purchased a set of extension tubes with the intention of starting a new project…macro photography!
My first go round using the extension tubes didn’t go as planned and out of frustration, I stored the tubes away and forgot about them.
A couple of weeks ago, I took my camera out to a nearby sunflower field and it was the perfect opportunity to give the extension tubes another try.
I’m pleased to say that I’m satisfied with the results! Now that I’ve gotten the hang of working with the extension tubes, I’m looking forward to using them again in the near future.
What’s satisfying to you?

I recently went to the National Building Museum to experience an unusual and creative exhibit known as the Hive.
The Hive is built entirely of wound paper tubes (over 2700 of them) that are recyclable, lightweight, and renewable. The tubes vary in sizes and reaches a height of 10 feet. The paper tubes interlock to create domed chambers and a stunning visual effect.
The coolest aspect of the “Hive” is that in its’ smaller chambers, there are tubular instruments ranging from simple drum-like tubes to chimes suspended within the space demonstrating its’ unique acoustic properties. Here are just a few of the fun pictures I captured!
