Still time for submitting something to #SundayStillLife! My family and I picked over 18 pounds of blueberries yesterday! My freezer is now full -- but before I froze them I had to take their portraits (and make a blueberry cake and eat handfuls of them!)
 
We picked a lot of blueberries this weekend so of course they are the feature of my #SundayStillLife  shot! : )

I think this black background still life is going to become a series. I'm suddenly flooded with ideas. : )

You know how sometimes a photo just comes together and you KNOW within a few clicks that you've got the image? And then sometimes, you arrange and rearrange and redo and nothing seems to click? Sigh, this was one of those images. The only thing I really liked was the extreme  crop -- which probably just proves that sometimes its the suggestion of something that is more informative than the whole. 

I blame the guitar. My husband (who decide to help me today) blamed the white hydrangeas. Something tells me we were both right. : )

The neck of the guitar makes a nice diagonal, and the tablecloth is sumptuous. The toned-down hydrangeas work well, while the citrus adds just the right pop of color.

Here's my latest for #SundayStillLife! I'm busy working on two "behind-the-scene" posts for this and the sunflower shot from my public stream. One of the pictures is all natural light and one of the pictures is all flash. Can you tell which is which?

I'm a bit behind in sharing but here's one from the weekend: Koi "flying" in the sky.

It was for my collaborative blog, "Call and Response" with +Cheryl Ruffing. The prompt (or call) was Confusion. It's just an in-camera double exposure with some contrast tweaking in LR and a bit of cleaning up in PS. Nothing all that fancy but I like it! #doubleexposure   #koifish   #surreal

Hello friends!

I have a quick request for you all -- I don't want this group to become a massive post and dump kind of group -- but it could be more fun and interesting if we got our membership numbers up a bit.

To that end, could you please take a moment and invite a friend to our group that you think might like this type of photography community? Or could you also share this group on your public stream? Let's spread the word.

Thanks so much! 

Looking forward to seeing everyone's contributions this weekend. I've got my idea for a shot -- now to just get the time to set-up and shoot. : )

Here's  my latest still life study. I really like the stronger directional light in this one -- I think I've finally hit the mark I was aiming for! You can check out the behind-the-scene post on my blog, Living in a Still Life: http://wp.me/p2v9Qt-Jj

I just found out that  it made #12 on Flickr Explore today! : ) I'm so excited!!!! (bit.ly/1nQmA8b )

And don't forget to get those still life photos ready to share for #SundayStillLife! (bit.ly/1nRVf4g)

Photographer of Real Life & Still Life | Lover of the Light (both natural & artificial)
Introduction
I do a lot of laundry and drive kids around to all sorts of baseball games, scouting events and other action-packed kids activities. In between it all, I try to take some interesting pictures and do my part to add a little bit of beauty to the world. Most importantly, I’ve met many other blogging moms out there doing the same thing! Over the years, we’ve formed quite the close-knit community.
Bragging rights
Did I mention that I've got seven kids?
