Once upon a time… I picked up my camera and took a pic. It was love at first click.
Once upon a time, I dreamed of being a part of Shutter Sisters. It was a magical place for women photographers to gather, share and connect on the inter-webs.
Once upon a time, I became a Shutter Sisters contributor. It was mondo-beyondo dream come true.
Next thing I knew I was on a plane to California to be part of the very first Shutter Sisters Photography camp.
(so FAR out of my comfort zone.)
Once upon a time, I landed in California, nervous as could be. And that’s where I met one of my closest friends…Xanthe Berkeley. Amazing, how life works.
And it was there, I decided (while looking out and over Monterey, California) that my home, this small yet BIG space was boring and flat …
Until last summer that is…when I rediscovered the beauty and peace of our tiny (yet BIG) space through the lens again.
Enter 2020. Corona. Never, ever… did I imagine this.
But there have been gifts, discoveries and ah-has along our ‘new path’.
And now, more than ever I realize the GIFTS of our slow, simple, tiny (yet BIG) prairie town.
I would NOT trade it at all.
I give thanks for…
The simplicity. The safety. The peace. And the big skies that go on and on …and on...How amazing is that?
Today’s photos edited in Lightroom with the Hygge presets…and a touch of grain here and there (from last week’s TT tutorial).
Enough about me… It’s TT. I haven’t forgotten this week’s download. 3 perfect paper textures to try out.
