Soft & Tender

Soft and tender creations
Inserting my own images
from collected French holy cards
Many shades of white...
with tones of natural colors from the past
Choosing different textures and light
Creating a moment of pleasure 
Sharing that moment with you.

Shadows of Grey

Tarnished, rusty and forgotten silver & greys
Hidden on shelves until needed
I live for props in my experimental photo shots.
I try to use as much as I can to give my pictures depth.
Adding bling to simple and sweet tin cups
 This is part of my "grey" collection.
 I will be taking lots of pictures this weekend
and the table is full and ready to go
I hope to be playing around with filters and altering images
Joining in at "Grey Dey Thursdey"

Capturing Moments

So many times I use simple window daylight
to capture my images 
Because I work full time during the weekdays,
I depend on working at night in my studio
Which means, I use a table lamp
 for light in my photos 
It can be time consuming
and frustrating 
working with light that isn't natural...
but I've slowly learned ways around
the glass glare and the over-brightness
 my camera captures
Just as long as my subject matter
(or props) are this serene...
I will always find the patience
to capture a moment for you

Simple Beauty

As this new year brings us fresh beginnings....
I still find simple beauty in all of the treasures I found...
and all the treasures that were gifted this past year.
Simple pages from a French book make me smile, 
as I carefully unwrap a package.
Once again, I adore how every bit of a purchase or gift
can be used and enjoyed again and again,
when wrapped this way.

I hope you are enjoying your Blissful Whites Wednesday

Le Grey

 A custom order turns into a perfect Grey Dey Thursdey post.
Le French fabric ribbon
grey tags
  A French door faded to a grey and shabby white
Last, a wooden angel in my studio
Just a few greys here and there.
