After hours of shooting portraits and family photos, I forget to take out my camera and photograph the little things I love, like the last viola defying the autumn chill, the water drop on my collie’s nose, and the look I get when someone doesn’t want his photo taken.
Being that it’s the first day of summer and the sky disagrees with calendar by producing gloomy clouds and a chilly breeze, I wanted to remind myself of one of my favorite happinesses (a word, yes?) of the season: violas. With a little playing around with new photo editing techniques, I smiled. I hope you smile, too.
I had a lovely afternoon/evening planting my flower pots today! It is one of my most favorite summer pastimes and after spending countless months (it seems) of clouds and rain, summer finally arrived in the Northwest. However, of course, today when I wanted to spend the day outside, the sunshine found itself to be scarce, much to my dismay. It did not stop me from enjoying the fresh air, though!
