Japanese garden bell catches the last rays of the day.

A beautiful day in the garden as our North Florida sunlight warms with its late winter rays. Hopefully, we’re past our hard freezes and we’ll be frost free the rest of the winter.

Winter departs… Spring will pass quickly… Summer stays & sizzles

We enjoy our all too short Winter… the sky is bright blue and often cloudless. The humidity is bearable for once. Spring – one of the nicest seasons – departs quickly as the Summer sun returns north of the equator. The unrelenting heat drives us to seek water and shade. Boats and beaches – sea breezes and cool drinks – air conditioning and thoughts of the mountains. But Summer is our favorite season – it has to be – it seems to never give up or go away.

It’s also a favorite time to enjoy photography. The colors are amazing and if you’re lucky, the day will end with a cooling thunderstorm – light show included!

Bring on the Summer!

Studio Fun

Our first subjects in our studio (more than a few years ago)… some of our children’s toys – actually their favorites! Tim’s was Ash and Pikachu and Lindsay’s was Sailor Jupiter.

Crystals…

We didn’t have room for a proper studio – portraits of people and pets, but a nice corner in our sun room became our tabletop studio and playground. Mostly product pics and of course the endless stream of camera pics.

Yummy treats from Japan.

Not much really. Simple everyday items that struck our fancy. Nothing taken at 24MP – Sony Cybershot, Fujifilm FinePix and of course the trusty Samsung Galaxy S4.

Thanks for the visit!
