"Challenge is the pathway to engagement and progress in our lives. But not all challenges are created equal. Some challenges make us feel alive, engaged, connected, and fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us. Knowing the difference as you set bigger and bolder challenges for yourself is critical to your sanity, success, and satisfaction."
~ Brendon Burchard




Apparently I missed a challenge issued by +Sean Cowen regarding #flowers , so I would be remiss if I didn't answer the call to share some floral art. OK, buddy, here you go... This is my submission to the #SeanCowenLovesFlowers  hashtag theme. I don't know whether or not it's still trending, but I wanted to do my part to contribute. Hope you like it, my friend.

To learn more about this hashtag, check out the original post here:

And if you are among the many of us who love shooting and sharing flower pictures, feel free to play along, and let's see if we can change Sean's mind.

"The requirements for our evolution have changed. Survival is no longer sufficient. Our evolution now requires us to develop spiritually - to become emotionally aware and make responsible choices. It requires us to align ourselves with the values of the soul - harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for life."
~ Gary Zukav





Yeah, I know, I know, I haven't been posting very much lately... Lots of things going on in both my personal and professional lives. Once everything calms down and I can establish a new routine, I'll explain more about what I've been up to over the past few weeks. Thank you to all my friends and followers for their patience and understanding while I adjust to the demands of the constantly evolving challenges and opportunities. Hope everyone is doing well, and can take some time this weekend for some reflection and rejuvenation. 


To all my favorite #bokeholics , I apologize for my absence of late. Things have been rather hectic, and I haven't shot anything new in quite some time (at least not anything botanically related). However, I hope to shoot some new flowers next week, just as soon as I can square away a few more responsibilities in the meantime.  #FridaysAreBokehlicious , and I hope my fellow #bokeh  aficionados will forgive my recent lack of participation, and have an awesome weekend! +Paul Moody  +Leo Deegan +Robin Griggs Wood +Lauri Novak +Paula Contreras +Wesly Smith +Angie Smith +Michael B. Stuart and so many more that regret I can't remember off the top of my head...

Even when only posting once or twice a week, somehow I still manage to get behind on notifications... Apologies!

+Dylan Johnson​​ Heard a few people saying that when we were in Hawaii too... I was never able to keep my balance long enough to stay on one of those things for more than a couple seconds!

"A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won't be too bad."
~ Robert Wagner



While on vacation in coastal Maine this past weekend, we were walking along the beach and spotted this cute pup all decked out with a white bow and requisite lobster bib. Those folks from New England take their lobster very seriously, ya know...

Anyway, while browsing through the stream this afternoon it came to my attention that today is #nationaldogday , so I definitely had to jump back on the desktop and add my contribution.

+Harinder minty Thanks for the interest. This is actually a fun pup we encountered while on vacation last weekend. But I agree with you, isn't the bandana cute?

Thanks for the warm feedback. This is a fellow photographer in my region. At a recent Meetup we exchanged headshots, and this is a quick snap I grabbed while he was goofing around.

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my recent pet portrait. I was shooting at a street festival, and this little guy was plopped down on the sidewalk enjoying the sunshine.

Introduction

By day I work in Business Development & Marketing for an online retailer.  Some of the sandboxes I get to play in include Email Marketing, Affiliate Management, Social Media Marketing, Copy Writing, Copy Editing, Proofreading, SEO, and Google Analytics.

At night and on weekends I prefer a more creative playground, where I can experiment with Digital Photography & Photoshop.  I take my camera with me everywhere I go, but am finally starting to learn to take fewer shots and instead compose images before clicking the shutter.  As time permits, I enjoy sharing images in the +Daily Photography Themes.  I met a number of amazing photographers in this community, and constantly find new inspiration. Want to know what we talk about? Thanks to +Jari Huomo you can easily browse through some of the best conversations from my page.

Other places you might occasionally find me online include Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Klout just to name a few.

I regularly participate in +Chrysta Rae’s Photography Scavenger Hunt, which I highly recommend not only for learning more about your own photography, but for making lots of new friends.  Here are just a few of the incredible people with whom I have the pleasure of interacting: +Chrysta Rae +Alan Shapiro +Kimberly Pemberton +Gary Munroe +Mel Peifer +Eustace James +Gilmar Smith +Mark Rodriguez +LaDonna Pride +GeneBowker If you are interested in learning more about the Hunt, and perhaps wish to view some photos from the latest adventure, check out this post!

Car Sense has a very comfortable hospitality suite, complete with refreshments and free WiFi. The repair process can often be confusing and full of anxiety; but Scott left me feeling like I was in good hands, clarifying all the details and simplifying the paperwork I had to deal with. Even when I'm only there for a routine oil change, the staff is always friendly and helpful. These folks understand that an excellent Customer Service experience brings loyal patrons back over and over again. THANK YOU Scott (and the Car Sense staff) for taking such good care of my vehicle!
