Dripping Down

Week 18

I am so addicted to this song by In This Moment, Adrenalize Me. I listen to it when I do my workouts and the beat and her voice just get me going! (It is hard rock, just so you know before you click the link.)

Song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXMfdpjnAHU

Lyrics:
I must confess,
I'm addicted to this
Shove your kiss straight through my chest
I can't deny, I'd die without this
Make me feel like a God
Music, love and sex
(Adrenalize me)
I crave excess,
Turning wine into sweat dripping down my neck
I can't deny, I'd die without this
Make me feel like a God
Adrenaline and sex

Glitter Me Foolish

Happy #FloralFriday  everyone!!! 

I haven't been around lately because I was very sick about two weeks ago.  I got a sinus infection that ended bursting my eardrum.  I still can't hear from it, but I am no longer dizzy when I try to stand up.  I haven't lifted weights or worked out in almost 2 weeks because even standing up, makes my heart race.  I am hoping that on Monday, I can start back at the gym.  

I haven't taken many photos lately - I haven't felt the inspiration.  I am hoping to get out more soon and I want to open a fine art portrait studio here.  With any luck, that will all come this summer.  If anyone has any tips on that, PLEASE share them with me!

Hope your Friday and your weekend is awesome!  Don't forget to tag myself, +Beth Akerman, +Eustace James, and +Kiki Nelson in your #FloralFriday  posts!

Imperfect

Oh, trying to capture these dragonflies is like trying to rope a star!  LOL!!  This was about as close to perfect focus I could get this time.  It seems I need to practice more!  With any luck, there will be more at the little pond I found - more of the big orange ones and more of the other varieties as well.

Hope your Tuesday is going well!  And if you have tips on getting close and getting perfect focus on these fast flying insects, let me know!

Instagram Anyone?

So it does seem that G+ is dying or perhaps growing in a direction that leave the rest of us in the dust. That makes me incredibly sad because G+ has been my home since beta days. I love G+ and everything it has been for me.

Since I am no longer on Facebook (haven't been there for over a year, but it seems that I may have to go back), I thought I would share my Instagram account and see who is there.

I don't just share my pro photos there; I also share behind the scenes and snippets of my daily life, like the phot with this post. I have been lifting weights for over a year and I share those types of things as well.

Let me know if you're there. I am tama_tee - https://instagram.com/tama_tee/.

Made To Taste Your Kiss

Week 17

My oldest and I have been reading the "I Am Number 4" series for a while now but never had the chance to watch the movie together.  Well, we finally got that chance!!  Loved the movie, though there were some changes and we are hoping for an eventual sequel.  

At the end of the movie, during the credits, "Letters From The Sky" by Civil Twilight played and I fell in love.  LOL!!  

Finally, I have some inspiration to keep moving forward with my 52 weeks project.  I have struggled and struggled with this one this year.  Too many things going on in my daily life to really devote any time to it.  

Lyrics: 
One of these days the sky's gonna break
And everything will escape and I'll know
One of these days the mountains
Are gonna fall into the sea and they'll know

That you and I were made for this
I was made to taste your kiss
We were made to never fall away
Never fall away

Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Wa7dFR09vU

Story
Tagline
I am a nature photographer and avid knitter. My photography site is www.throughtamseyes.com.
Introduction
I am a photographer, knitter, mother of three living children and one angel baby, wife, sister, niece, daughter...I try not to let those labels define me.  :D

I am on a quest to find myself through my photography.  I am finding that I do a lot of floral work and I would like to break out of that mold and try new things.

As of right now, I do sell my prints and I do sell portrait photography.

I have a website - www.throughtamseyes.com.
