~Paul Strand


I have to admit, I have hit a creative wall these past few days. I have totally lost my steam, my umph. But unlike some people who have ten things going on at once, this is the only project I have going  on at the moment. Really? I’m going to quit? I don’t think so, Faith. And so I blunder on. Taking photo after photo, unsure if they even measure up to my potential. I have begun to think of myself as an “accidental photographer”. If I got a great shot, it was purely by accident. 🙂 It is my determination that I need to start educating myself in order to grow even further. Take a class or read a book, it doesn’t matter. I’m just tired of being accidental.

Anyways, enough of that. Moving on.

Day 7: “Fly”

This one consisted of me chasing around this bee all over my yard, cursing him to stay still for more than 2 seconds.


Day 8: “Ornament”


Day 9: “Drizzle”


Day 10: “Full Bodied”

    You may have had a hiccup but those are great pics.
    I especially like the ornament one…don’t know why exactly, probably the colors….I’m into those colors these days.

    I love the composition of “drizzle.” And I have photog books that I will bring you when I pick up the G-dog. xoxo

    ummmm…..these don’t strike me as accidental at all. they’re very creative and wonderful.

    and besides…an accidental photographer doesn’t get her photo on the front page of the creativity boot camp.

    just sayin’
