Two To Tango

Happy #FloralFriday  everyone!!!  It has been a long, LONG time since I participated or curated this theme.  Things have been so busy around my life that I haven't even shot flowers in a long time.  I figured this one would be perfect for today.

Don't forget, the #FloralFriday  theme is curated by myself, +Eustace James, +Beth Akerman, and +Kiki Nelson...though I know those three have done way more than I lately.  And thank you immensely to them and to everyone who participates!!

Come A Little Closer

Well, we made it to Texas on Saturday, got the kiddos to their new school on Monday and are waiting on the rest of our stuff to get here today.  Then, the real unpacking begins.  O_O

This is one of the last images I captured in Arizona, when +Christina Lawrie came down to visit for one last time before we had to leave.

A Little Sunshine

After a very 'rainy' day on Tuesday and the photo that came from it on Wednesday...

Today has a bit more sunshine in it.  (Even though it is actually cloudy... ;) ).

Finding A Way

I found this while walking the dogs on our way back from our Texas trip. Just a small patch of plants growing through some asphalt.

They made me stop and think for a minute, about how my husband is living in Texas and the kiddos and I are in Arizona. Somehow, just like these little plants pushing through asphalt, we are finding a way to keep going, growing and thriving.

I know that these plants will be stronger than ones grown in sand because of the adversary. Just like myself and my family.

If anyone is over at Instagram, I'm over there too!! I am @tama_tee. I typically don't put my cell phone pics here - they are usually at Instagram along with behind the scenes photos. I would love to see you there too!

Week 7

I am still a week behind but at least it hasn't grown to two weeks.  LOL!  I am hoping, again, to try and catch back up this week, but we will see.

Pray

For right now, I am posting photos that I have taken in the last month or so...because I am super far behind on my 52 weeks project because of our move.  Ugh.  I want to catch up on it, but I am feeling a little uninspired.  :(  So...if you have any ideas or thoughts on getting reinspired, please feel free to share!  I could use the help.

Chaos' Beginning

This was taken last summer.  I know I will miss these storms and chasing them all over southern Arizona, but I am looking forward to the different types of storms that are around west Texas.  It will be something new and exciting to see and photograph.

Most of my lightning photos are named after god/goddess mythology and this one is no different.  Chaos is the nothingness from which all else sprang and she also represented the lower atmosphere which surrounded the earth.

Kiss Me, Baby

So... I even got to see +Amy Heiden before I left Arizona!  She flew in for a last minute workshop and, of course, we had to get together!  We went out to the Desert Museum with my kiddos and had fun checking out as many of the animals as possible.  

We might have even dropped a Barbie into the porcupine cage - NOT ON PURPOSE!  Actually, it was my youngest and the cries could be heard all the way up to the office.  Fortunately, they were able to rescue Barbie and save the day.  ;)

Long Goodbye

Week 10

This week, we are moving from Arizona.  We head back to Texas after almost 10 years of living in the desert.  

The desert is my home.  I was born and raised in the the high desert of New Mexico and when we had the opportunity to move here in May of 2005, it was my dream come true. 

I have born two of my three living children here and lost one.  We found a great house in a great neighborhood, a really awesome school for my children, and lots of new friends. And the storm chasing... Oh how I love thee.  LOL!  If it wasn't for Tucson, I wouldn't have began my storm chasing journey, that will continue in tornado country.

It is hard to close this chapter of our life.  So many things have happened.  But, a new adventure awaits us and I am excited for the next step.

This is the Rattlesnake Bridge in Tucson... I wish I had come here more often.  It is pretty amazing.

Week 8

We went to Texas this weekend to visit my husband and of course... It snowed.  Here we are, coming from Tucson where it was mid-70's, into Texas where it was snowing and freezing.  Yes, this desert rat was COLD!!

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.
