Thoughts photographed

“You don’t take a photograph.  You ask, quietly, to borrow it.”

There are some things in life that keep me from sitting and writing posts every day (which would be ideal for me. Just for me)…I’m sure you know what I mean when I say ‘life’. I have a lot to talk about… inspiration is everywhere and I can go on and on… but the good news is that I just got this amazing new camera… it forces me to create a new hobby: photography.
Not that I didn’t take pictures before but that camera is a sexy little piece of machine, that allows me to take shots of my rugs, room settings, samples, drawings and paintings…anything. It’s just that…when I take photos with the new camera I’m actually sitting on the ground, aiming at a subject…adjusting…exposure…light…composition…you know…almost like a pro. 😉
calla lili flower…and this is only one example…of the many things she can do for me…
Amazed at the new perspective…when all is contained… in one tiny lens…
… the night was so gorgeous I had to get out to my backyard and take some pictures of my plants…
…while my husband is shouting from the inside…the plans for our next project…


I’m all for…ambiance…

plant, ambiance

…through my new “eyes” darkness is already looking better…
plant at night

…drama and ambiance…
oh, I could imagine all kinds of things happening with these two words…
tree trunk

…a tree trunk that looks boring during the day…look at it now…
star burst flower
This is my next botanical painting.
…this plant took over my backyard…now takes over the neighbor’s…hope he wont mind.
…looks like a giant illuminated pink umbrella…
simply stunning.


…and the ambiance changes…

early morning…very early…
calla lili flower
Love calla genus (lily).
I illustrated this elegant flower in pen and ink and gave it to a friend as Hanukkah present. We are not friends anymore (she didn’t like my painting?…) ha.
I can always make a new one…(friend or  illustration?)

purple flower

Can you see the hair on this gorgeous purple flower?? It looks right back at you.

pebbles


green leafs…a neighbor’s butterfly-weed took over my yard…now I don’t have to buy it…
pink flower
…every girl loves pink… right?…bright…light…gorgeous pink…right?
orange treeHave this orange tree for a couple of years now…and only one orange…

doesn’t even smell like one…
you can tell by the leafs…
maybe it needs some vitamin c…

water fountainLast minute change in our backyard makeover design (yay)… few hours later we installed this beautiful noisy fountain.
I love noise.
Can’t wait to experiment more with my camera.
But like anything else…
practice…practice…practice.
