FOTD – January 29th (zinnias)

Here are some colorful shots of zinnias from over the summer. They’re one of my favorite flowers.

Looking through these sweet flower photos has inspired me to start an exciting new project: seed starting and building a raised bed garden behind my apartment. My lady neighbors are on board, too, so it’s going to be an all women’s community garden effort. ā™€ļø

This year has been a real doozy, and covid will probably stick around for a bit longer. I’m really excited about creative new projects coming down the pipe. Stay tuned and here is to hoping that I don’t kill my sweet seedlings. šŸŒ±ā˜€ļøšŸ…

Dreamy Petals, Tiny Critters

I’m having a lot of fun capturing dreamy petals and colors. When I purchased this macro lens, I knew this would be something I could learn, document, and look back at when the annual and inevitable post-holiday seasonal depression kicks in. Here are some photos I took a month or so ago before the weather turned and the dahlias were still in bloom.

September Yellows

Septembers in Western North Carolina are beautiful. The days are still warm, but they seem to get a bit shorter and the nights cool off significantly. These shots were taken at my favorite place in the world, the valley below Sam’s Knob, located in Shining Rock Wilderness area. I found plenty of lovely yellows with my Fuji XT30 and the Laowa 65mm macro lens.


Here are some other fun shots from that day, too.


We went back to another favorite area just above Sam’s Knob a few weeks later. Here are some more September yellows from Black Balsam Knob.
