Pausing Life . . .

“A photograph is the pause button of LIFE.”

On April 29th my first grandchild was born, a baby boy.  He is without a doubt, the most beautiful baby.  He has kept us busy with visits, snuggles and just loving him to pieces.

I took a few weeks away from photography, just to spend time with him, my daughter and son-in-law.  Now that they are getting acclimated to their new life as parents and a family of three, it was time to resume my photography.

I hope you are all doing well, I’m glad to be back.  This week I visited my friend Cheryl, Cheryl has a love for decorating and especially for growing flowers.  Her peonies finally bloomed this week, so I went for a visit this cloudy and rainy Memorial Day.

I photographed her yard in August 2016, the year my daughter was married.  That day the sun was shining and the temperature was in the 90’s, humid and extremely hot, quite a difference from the weather today.  I must say, it was much easier to photograph today vs. the 90 degree day of two years ago.  Of course, August is typically much hotter than May in NJ.

Nature gives us such beauty to behold.  The softness of each petal, with the hint of red poking though is breathtaking.  It was nice to get outside and photograph flowers instead of taking photographs inside.  Welcome Spring!

Until next time, stay well . . .

“A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder.” ~  Susan Orlean

This past Thursday the East Coast in the USA was blanketed by a blizzard.  While snow may look romantic and magical in photographs, it’s a completely different story when those beautiful white flakes turn into a blizzard.  If you are not familiar or have never been in an area that has harsh winters, snow can often times not be fun and it’s for absolute certain a blizzard is not fun.  For those who have never experienced a harsh winter let alone a blizzard, here is the definition of a blizzardContinue reading “A Snow Day”
