Week #7 - Hanging Out In Seattle

The long weekend provided me with the perfect excuse to hop on a plane and head out of town to the Seattle area to visit my son who recently moved up to the Pacific Northwest. Saturday was raining so we headed into Seattle to check out the Conservatory in Volunteer Park. The Conservatory is small but had a good collection of plants and flowers. They are offering free entrance through the month of February. If you are in the area I would recommend a visit.

Some images I took as I focused on lines, patterns, and shapes.

Week #3 - Finding Time For Creativity

 “The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.” 

RIP Mary Oliver

I often feel like there is little time in my daily life to carve out space for creative endeavors.  For me the best way to capture some time is to simply schedule a class . Whether a week long class in Paris or a half day class in my home town, making this commitment to my photography brings me great creative happiness.
