My really awesome photo

December 7, 2011

You know, I have a lot of reasons to be grateful to blogging – the friendships, the opportunities, the creative expression, yada yada. But one of the things I really love about it is the way it’s encouraged me to be a better photographer – and I owe a lot of that to The Gallery.

I’m not usually one to boast about photography – I have so much to learn. But I took this photo at the start of the summer and it’s one of those shots where everything just came together: the light, the perfect rose (Brother Cadfael, in case you’re interested), the works. If you breathe in, you can smell that heavenly fragrance.

This photo would look FANTASTIC blown up huge on my bedroom wall. Am I right, Tara?

    I think you’re right – and if you can make it snow over the picture too it would be super-awesome 😉 Seriously, how are you all getting it to snow on your blogs at the moment??

      Snow on wordpress is through settings, and there’s a box at the bottom to click snow til Jan 4th.
