June 2017: Dreamy at Share Six | Fort Collins, Colorado Lifestyle and Fine Art Photographer

The June blog circle theme at Share Six is DREAMY / DREAMS. I hope you’ll take the time to link around the full blog circle (next link at the bottom), and then submit to the Share Six Facebook and/or Instagram pages for a chance to be featured.

Macro photography feeds my soul. I passionately love looking at the world – particularly the natural world – from new and different perspectives. Although it may sound odd to some, macro photography reminds me of my snorkeling experiences, in that it leads me to observe things I simply don’t see everyday. I refer to my macro botanical work as “buds and bugs” as I also love witnessing life at the scale of insects when shooting macro.

For this themed post, I took a little time to shoot in my gardens, something I hadn’t done in recent months. As an aside, you know how when you go biking or running, you often become aware of hills you hadn’t noticed before? The same thing happens when shooting macro in nature and breezes. Those tiny breezes magnify so much. I say this to say the breezes – nay – the WIND – in recent days made several of the subjects I wanted to include unusable, for lack of focus as the plants swayed about! In any event, I love the abstract qualities and the delicious, dreamy bokeh in these images, and hope you enjoy them, too!

I sincerely appreciate you dropping by to check out my take on DREAMY / DREAMS. Next in the blog circle is the highly talented Ceri Herd Photography! Please link over and see the post Ceri  has generated for the theme. For a chance to be featured at Share Six, please submit your DREAMY OR DREAMS images to the Share Six Facebook and/or Instagram pages (tag #sharesix and #sharesix_dreamy or #sharesix_dreams) by July 5th.

Camping Weekend Away

My family finally grabbed a long weekend, if just over 3 days counts as “long,” and got away from our house for the first time since moving here in late winter. We’re loving Fort Collins and as we drove away, I even told my husband that I was a little sad to skip a weekend here, but we have also been anxious to go camping. Due to the challenges with the little people in our lives, as well as a super soggy Friday and resultant wet tent, we didn’t cover nearly as much ground as we had planned, but we still managed to see some gorgeous areas that were new to us, and quite a few wildflowers. Even better, we met numerous kindred spirits, made new friends, and saw – and purchased – some fabulous art. My primary destination of Crested Butte will have to wait. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy viewing these, all taken roughly between Breckenridge/Frisco and Fort Collins.
