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!

Stand Alone

When we were checking out the I-20 Wildlife Preserve (www.i20wildlifepreserve.org/) last Friday, we ran across a field of wild onions just about ready to bloom!!!  EEP!  The scent of onions, all the gorgeous greens... yea, I was excited to spot them!!  It was really cool and that reminds me... I need to head back this week and see if they have popped yet.

Tell Me Who You're Thinking Of

Week 13

This one is #LyricallyInspired ... And I hope you like the song I have associated it with.

Song: Lights by Battle Me And The Forest Rangers - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HhBDnP0mT0

Lyrics:

I see you out there on the wall
Say you'll jump instead of fall
Thinking this is all you are
Sinking ships 'n' shooting stars_
Saying this is who we are

Tell me who you're thinking of
Out there beyond us all
Taking pictures on the wall
With heavy hands and static balls
Saying this is who we are

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!

Thor's Night

Taken last summer, this was one of the best storms Tucson saw all of the 2014 monsoon season.  While I might not be there for this upcoming season...I am going to try and make it back for a week each summer, just to try and chase my favorite storm systems.  

The good news is I am now in a place where I can learn about the high plains storms (tornadoes, open plains, amazing storm systems!)  and with any luck, chase them with someone experienced.  Know anyone I could talk to?  :D

West Texas Paradise

For the first time since I moved here, I went out and shot a sunset.  I haven't been feeling very inspired as I miss the mountains and the desert that Tucson is.  I have to admit though, there are some really breathtakingly beautiful spots around here.  I am looking forward to finding more.

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.
