Monochrome Monday: Magnolia Bakery

Happy Monday!


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!

Macro Photography: Classic Mini Car

A few months back, I purchased a classic miniature car to photograph. This weekend, I finally got around to pulling out my extension tubes and had a great time shooting this little beauty. I have a few more ideas for photographs, so this may not be the last time you see this mini classic featured on the blog.

100 Beautiful Strangers Project: Stranger #50

I’m happy to announce that I’ve met the 50th Stranger in my 100 Beautiful Strangers Project this weekend!! I’m officially at the half way point guys!!

This weekend, I joined a group of photographers from a meet up group to attend the annual Renaissance Fair. The event is very popular in this area. I was excited because this was my first time attending the fair. The fair was amazing! There was so much to see and a lot to photograph.

Since I knew this was going to be a great event, I made it my goal to meet a stranger for the project.

I did a bit of scouting around the festival grounds and came across a yellow wall that could serve as the background. I think it worked great for the picture.

There was only one thing left to do…find the next stranger!

When I saw Lavette, I knew in an instant that she was the perfect person to be Stranger #50 in the project.

Lavette was great! She was a natural in front of the camera and knew how to pose with various expressions .  Out of the few poses I took, these two were my favorites.

I hope that you enjoy the photos too Lavette! Thank you for being Stranger #50!!
