Week in Review: Weeks 117 & 118

I stayed in most of the long Memorial Day weekend…but got out on Monday for my nephew’s (actually my ex’s son but I’ve always been Aunt Bettye, which is nice) birthday party. It was a nice day to sit outside….

    1. Thanks for the compliment, Jodie. Photography is not my livelihood (fortunately!) but I have been doing it professionally on a (very) part-basis for several years – events, weddings, portraits, that sort of thing. I shut it all down last year when i was incapacitated…and I really don’t have the heart for it this year. Nothing can kill your photography mojo like shooting almost exclusively for other people. This year I’m just shooting for me (and I shoot our work events because that’s just part of my job now) and trying to find the joy again. Most of the pics in my week-in-review posts are just from my cell phone.

      I’m happy to help if there’s anything in particular you’re challenged by.

      1. I can totally relate to that Bettye!!
        We usually end up having to take our photos during the day (and not the golden hour), so I feel limited by taking them in the shade. Is there a way to create a wonderful photo in the sun??

    1. Ha, yes, I did one of those Paint’n’Sip classes with my daughter a few years ago. I don’t know how long it’s been in the back of my car but something poked a hole right through the canvas. It’s okay. It was fun to do but was not a great work of art 🙂 I’m getting ready to try my hand at watercolor painting. Eek. Ha!

  1. I love your fence goals! I can’t wait to see your backyard with that fence with roses pouring all over. I love the Chinese Scholar garden. Does it differ from other Chinese gardens? Like is there a Chinese laborer garden and a Chinese law practice garden and and and… Keep the sunsets coming!
