peonies and evening light

"the air was full of exquisite sounds - sleepy robin whistles, wonderful,mournful,soft
 murmurs of the wind in the twilit trees.
rustle of aspen poplars talking on  silvery whispers and shaking their dainty,heart shaped leaves,lilting young laughter from the windows of the rooms where the girls were making ready for the dance."
Rilla of Ingleside

I'm not a bit changed...

--not really. I'm only just pruned down and branched out. The real ME--back here--is just the same."

on lilacs and learning...

lately i have been really struggling with my
photography, getting business things organized and coming
to the mid point of my 365 project i have felt a little bogged down.i haven't felt very inspired or inspired at all sometimes . i began second guessing every idea i had for a image based on weather it would work for the blog , would it help attract clients. combine that with warmer weather and more activity in the family and less time at the computer and i was really questioning if i was progressing or just taking snapshots.my prospective changed a little when i revisited this session of Bronte` last night . i took these shots a year ago and at the time i was utterly thrilled with them. i have had them in the back of my mind lately as it is lilac time again but when  i went through them last night to blog them i was shocked. as a mom i still think she looks beautiful and i have great memories of that lovely warm evening but as a photographer i couldn't believe  how bad the shots  were. the white balance was off in most, the focus is questionable in all ,non are tack sharp.i wasn't shooting in raw format so i couldn't change much now and i was still shooting in auto mode .i realize that even though every image is NOT a masterpiece , using my camera everyday is still a worthwhile exercise, i have become a much, much better photographer in the last year and even though it doesn't feel like it i am growing even now,
