Monday's Muse: It's what I see...

For my Monday's Muse on March 9th I wrote about realizing that my creativity branches out from the written word and my desire to show that through photography. Since that post I have continued to notice beauty around me and attempt to capture it on film... uh, to capture it digitally.

With photography, like mostly everything else that I do, I am impatient. I want to get a perfect picture the first time and move on. What I'm learning is that I often have to reposition, relocate, try again, try again and still try again. I don't always do that, but I haven't given up on trying. And, the best part is, I've found another creative outlet that pleases and entertains me. I also hope it gives you a little pleasure too.

Here are a couple of my most recent attempts:

I am completely enthralled with the sky. Although I've always noticed its beauty, there's something surreal about capturing it.

Each and every one of my children are beautiful and photogenic, but I am always amazed at how natural my son is. He and his oldest sister can throw on a model's face in a minute and without prompting. I love the colors in this shot.

What has you feeling creative this week? Share here or hop on over to Maternal Spark to participate in Monday's Muse.

See Jo, I'm well on my way to finding my favorite photo to put into the frame that you gave me. :)


  1. WOnderful pics, Petula. How are things with you? Thanks for stopping by

  2. Aw...what a genuine smile and those eyes..I think you did a wonderful job!

    And I know what you mean about the sky, for some reason I find the sky to be more entrancing in photographs then I do in real life. That's only the sky though.

  3. I'm so glad to have you back at Monday's Muse! You are doing a wonderful job with your photography (how could you not with models like that!)

  4. I was inspired to try photography by one of my favorite authors and it is new to me as well this year. I think the photos really add to a story or vice versa.

    Isn't it funny how you are into skies? Your photos of them are great--you have a good eye. It's funny what we focus on (no pun intended) and work to perfect--I do that with the frogs here and paths on vacation. I think it says something about you, don't you?

    Keep up the good work!!


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
