Texture: What is your favorite texture… touch feel… It has been so hot here in NC that the first texture I thought of was the fountain that sits beside my screen porch.  I love the sound but more than that I love the splashes in the water.  It looks so cool and refreshing.  Second, the texture that God gave to all fruit, but especially strawberries.  These are one of my favorite fruits.  I have many friends and even Alex, my soon to be daughter-in-law who do not like fruits because of their textures.  I am so thankful that I do not mind the texture of fruit,  because what a special treat I would be missing out on.  Third, but not least, is my favorite furry friend.  This is none other than Gracie.  I love her and the beautiful hair that she has.  I love it because she does not shed.  These are just a few textures that I was able to photograph this week.

Now continue over to Jennifer Hill, South Georgia Photographer to see what texture she feels is special.

Silhouette: Awesome for a summer evening! Boy has it ever been summer here in NC.  It looks to me that almost everyone in the US is HOT!

On Monday night I once again talked Josh and Mary Grace, who are getting married November 5th, into allowing me take some photos of them.  My dear photography bud, Amy went along as well.  We always have such a great time and I so enjoy her company and all her mentoring.  We decided we would go down to the venue where they plan to wed, MacGregor Downs CC and the night was beautiful, a little muggy, but super light.  I wanted to try this shot and use it as my silhouette, it is not the best, but I love it the same.  They both thought it was cute as well.  We are so excited to be gaining such a sweet, sweet daughter and very soon! :)

Isn't LOVE Sweet!

I know that  Linsey Stuckey of Houston, Texas will have an amazing silhouette to share with everyone.  She always has such super, colorful shots so go and check her out!

Wow half way and still going strong.  This week we were to capture trees.  This is really a wide spectrum to try and capture the perfect picture.  Trees  provide great shade, a cool place to rest out of the sun.  They take in carbon dioxide and in return, through photosynthesis, give us oxygen . . . . . .  (thank you google).  They provide a beautiful green back drop to our life.  When I thought about what I could capture, a reflection came to mind.   I took this picture at an old mill near my home where I grew up.  Such a peaceful place that gives a true sense of serenity.

Freedom: What does this word mean to you? What in your life best defines it? Also an opportunity to show off Fireworks! Well to be honest this week I guess I went in a different direction.  When I think of freedom, I think of my Freedom in Christ, thankful to live in a country where I can worship freely, thankful for all the men and women who put their lives on the line each day for my freedoms.

The 4th of July  always is a day of celebration and we usually walk down about a mile from my house to watch the fireworks in Cary.  This year it stormed and they were cancelled and rescheduled for Tuesday.  I decided I would not go and so no fireworks pictures for me.

Decisions, decisions!  What do I take for my photo this week.  I decided on our cat, Itty Bitty.    Each night I put him in the garage to stay safe and every morning I let him out. I leave a tiny crack in the door so that he can have his “freedom” during the day.  He is always happy to come out and greet the world and get some fresh air.  He is 16 years old and still going strong so today I share with you Itty Bitty!!

Hey let me out of here!!

Yes, free at last!

Really? Can a cat not rest in peace. Just want to grab a little sun!

This week was all about movement and shutter speed.   I did not take this photo this week but it was one of the first ones that I thought to use for this week.  While in NYC I was able to capture the movement in Grand Central Station.   My husband works in NYC and we have a condo very close to Grand Central.   I went up to NY for a photo workshop with Nikon and we were able to take tripods into Grand Central which normally is not allowed.  This gentleman, in the middle, is my model.  He was one of the mentors that led the group.  It was a great time and Grand Central is one of my favorite places to people watch because it is always full of movement.
