25 @ 25: Boots and Blossoms

In mid-March I went to the fantabulous Longwood Gardens.  While there I took quite a few pictures (about 500 by the end of the day).  Here is one with my boots near early Spring blossoms.

25 @ 25: By the Dock

Although I went up north over a month ago, I’m still in a Maine state of mind.  This week’s 25 @ 25 features a picture on a dock in Maine (pretty awesome view, eh?).

25 @ 25: Shadow Play

I am currently in the gorgeous state of Maine visiting some dear friends.  We headed to the beach yesterday and I went nuts with my camera!  The scenery is breathtaking.

The sun was brilliant that day, so I decided to play with shadows for this week’s self-portrait:

25 @ 25: Artist at Work

I’ve gotten quite crafty over the past month or so.  See?

This week’s 25 @ 25 features a picture of me getting my hands dirty with an X-acto knife, glass, scrapbook paper, and craft glue:

25 @ 25: These Black Boots Were Made for Walkin’

I’ve been taking a photography class over the last 5 weeks at CCA Bedminster.  Tonight was the last class.  During the critique, the instructor pointed out that three of my self-portrait shots could be the start of a series. I’ve never done a photography series before, but the idea is exciting!  So, this week’s 25 @ 25 post includes three pictures that may become part of a larger project (I’m thinking the common thread will be the sassy black boots!)

25 @ 25: Reflections

There was (and perhaps still is) a trend of photographers who take self-portraits with their cameras looking straight into a mirror.   But what about reflections in other surfaces?  I was recently out taking a lot of pictures which focused on texture,when I discovered I could see myself pretty clearly in the bumper of my car.  And this is the resulting shot:

Can you tell I don’t like showing my face in self-portraits?  Maybe I’ll change that trend next week….
