Weekly Photo #31

Hello! My regular weekly photo posting schedule became discombobulated mid-year, but after a couple of batch photo postings, I think we’re caught up now. This is the new weekly photo, taken from an observation pier in a nearby neighborhood, with the iPhone. It was a lovely weekend, and we enjoyed some neighborhood pools, and the company of friends.

Weekly Photo #22

Well, I caught up on some sleep and am getting back into my routine. As promised, here is Weekly Photo #22, also taken in Barcelona. This is a dusk shot of the Port Vell area, after the lights came on and the evening crowds started developing for a night of entertainment. Taken with my iPhone.

Once I sort through all of my Canon 5D photos, I’ll be posting some of those too. Enjoy!

Weekly Photo #21

You may have wondered where I was last week…where was the weekly photo that some of you so eagerly anticipate (slight hint of sarcasm there)? Well, I was traveling in Barcelona and Catalunya. I didn’t get to post, but I certainly got to take a year’s worth of weekly photos last week. Here is one taken with my iPhone. It was taken in Vall de Nuria in the Spanish Pyrenees. I will catch up with Weekly Photo 22 soon, when I’ve recovered from the jet lag.

Weekly Photo #20

Here’s the weekly photo…we’ve been getting so much rain lately, resulting in plants and flowers looking so lush. So, I thought this photo would be appropriate. Taken with iPhone and adjusted in PS Express.

Also, three of my photos have been submitted for a Fine Art America photo contest. Please vote for my submissions here (shameless plugs are indeed allowed and encouraged by FAA for this contest):

Weekly photo #19

Here’s my weekly photo #19. In the midst of being worried about medical test results, I decided to take a lesson in seizing the day and not letting life pass me by, despite my worry. It’s a beautiful day and I decided to use my good camera and take a walk in the park. The dappled sunlight throughout the woods was lovely. Taken with my 5D mk ii and adjusted in Camera RAW.

Weekly Photo #18

This week has been hectic with medical appointments, work, and projects. But I managed to get in a little time with friends while strawberry picking. This week’s photo shows the results of my picking. Taken with iPhone and adjusted in PS Express.

Weekly Photo #17

Here’s weekly photo 17. Since I seem to be indoors in my cubicle a large portion of the week, this week it seemed a struggle to find a good outside shot. Even my commutes tended to be rainy or dreary. So, I figured I’d take a shot of something in my cubicle, however it also reminds me of the great outdoors, particularly the ocean. I found this sand dollar myself on a remote barrier island off the Eastern Shore of VA. They nickname this spot “Sand Dollar Island”. My husband and I visited there on the weekend before my dad’s death last year, so it is bittersweet for me. Taken with my iPhone, converted to black and white, sepia, and cropped in PS Express.
