Winter’s Gentle Touch

Winter's Gentle Touch

“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year…
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Black and White Thursday

It is Thursday and that means I posted a black and white photograph on Monochromia.  The image I posted on Monochromia today is one that I had previously posted on this blog.  You can find the original post HERE.

I am excited and honored to tell you that this picture was selected in a juried exhibit, “Americana” at the Pennsylvania Center for Photography.

Honor

“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.” ~ Bradley Whitford

Merry Christmas

Sharing some News

Happy Sunday!  It’s been a big week for me!   First, I want to share a blog post by Leanne Cole in which she featured me in her weekly introduction series.  I have been following Leanne for years, and find her to be a true inspiration.   With that being said, I am very honored to be featured by her.  Leanne’s blog post about me can be viewed HERE.

This photograph was taken in front of the New York City Public Library during the afternoon Leanne and I spent together in New York this fall.

The other piece of news that I would like to share with you is that I was contacted by Nelson Education/Cengage Learning, a Canadian publishing company, last Monday.  The company asked to purchase one of my images to be used for the cover of a textbook for colleges and universities.   The print run will be 13,240.   Needless to say, I said yes, and am more than excited about this opportunity.  “Love Intertwined”, the image purchased by Nelson Education/Cengage Learning, can be found in a pervious blog post HERE.

It’s the Little Things…

It's the Small Things in Life

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.” ~ Khalil Gibran

Wishing you much joy through little things and many blessings to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Black and White Thursday

Please visit Monochromia to see my Black and White Thursday image.  I think you’ll enjoy it, especially if you appreciate a shallow depth of field.  Be sure to let me know your thoughts and I promise to get a new blog post up here soon…I’ve been busy editing family portrait sessions and time has been limited – a good thing…really!
