As part of my #RetirementJoy I have started A Photo A Day: 366 Photos of 2020 to challenge myself to get up, get out there and practice, practice, practice my art to improve and excel! I will add each day to this Blog Post so that you can view them all in one place. The latest photos will be at the top. Decided to make them into 75 day Blogs.  Starting 3rd one on Day 151.

Day 189 of 366 Photos of 2020

One of my goals for Winter (now my Covid Goal πŸ€ͺ) was to learn how to convert some of my photos into Black & White pencil sketches in Photo Shop, print on watercolor paper and use my new Arteza Watercolor pencils and marker brushes to colorize them for a specialized line of cards.  I plan on working on these in the winter when Photo Sessions are slower and I can spend time in my studio. 

Today I converted one photo to try it out. Haven’t done the watercolor part yet but am excited about this new line❣️

First photo is original. Second photo is the sketch version. 😊 Looking forward to the watercolor portion.

Day 188 of 366 Photos of 2020

My first shots with my "new" Nikkor Micro 200mm lens were more than I could have hoped for! I'm lovin’ this lens already. Can’t wait to go to Fuller Gardens with it❣️ Hard to choose my favorite from today. I love the blur in the background with this one. πŸ₯°πŸ˜❤️

Day 187 of 366 Photos of 2020

I always hate lighting the grill for the first time after replacing the propane . . . even after checking the connection for leaks. I prop my back door open, light the first burner and run in (like I could outrun a gas explosion!πŸ™„)πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜ If it doesn’t blow up I go back and light the other 2 burners! πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œ

But it was worth it for my grass ged beef tenderloin tonight. Almost time for a Hannaford-to-Go run again.  I got some new slicing gadgets so I think I’m going to try a lasagna using thin, flat, zucchini slices instead of noodles. I might use meat although I loved the raw vegetarian lasagna with macadamia nut “cheese” at the Inn of the Seventh Ray!

I got to the barn a little late for getting detail in the moon tonight. Should have gotten there as it was coming up over the trees. But all was not lost . . . I did get one with the fireworks in the background.

A few late day painterly photos of my climbing rose bush.  I forgot I had the camera set to double exposure for the first photo. Love the pale pink ones.

Day 176 of 366 Photos of 2020

I thought I'd go to FULLER GARDENS early before working on my taxes because if i started those, I'd never make it to the gardens especially with rain coming in.  It is really PHENOMENAL right now!  My HaPpY Place!  I mostly used my macro lens handheld today. They don't encourage the use of tripods especially at this time of year with a lot of people in the garden as it  blocks the pathways.  Maybe I'll bring it when I go late in the afternoon one of these days. Or I could try my monopod that I never use!

Even though I’m not back in the saddle as far as booking sessions for my photography business, it was FUN to get out and “shoot some people” rather than just flowers today when I took some pics for my friend, Julie Croteau Lambert  before the Winnacunnet High School graduation. Congratulations, Matthew Lambert, on your WHS Graduation and all the best as you fill that brand new canvas at Wheaton College & beyond!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ“πŸŽ¨

Day 173 of 366 Photos of 2020

It had been a few days since i went to opening day so this afternoon I went to Fuller Gardens for an hour around 4 p.m..  The clouds rolled in just enough to cut the harsh light.

The roses have exploded in 3 days with the heat and are beautiful!  My favorite rose was always the Sherbet rose, but I have a new favorite now. The COLORIFIC ROSE!  I'm in love with it! i even did some multiple exposures of it to accentuate the ripples.

Here’s one of my faves. I LOVE the ‘ombre’ effect❣️

I don’t do a lot of Black & White Photography, but every so often a photo speaks to me in monochrome. This was the case this morning as this photo called to me in LightRoom and here’s the result. I like it❣️

One quick Milky Way edit before I head to bed! Need to go back again to perfect this!  Ran into Deb Boulanger and Lisa Tutinas who came to the barn after they saw Chris Lutton's photo from last night. No lightpainting needed for the barn with the strings of lights along the edges of the roof and sides. Just wish the giant flag was up!

Just some yard flowers as I count down to the 2020 Member Opening of "MY" Fuller Gardens on Wednesday! The purple flocks are growing behind the house. I alway remember my mom having “ground flocks” at our house when I was growing up.

Celebrating Lupine on the NH Seacoast in Hampton.
A few years ago I photographed these lupine  from the road and left the residents some lupine cards.  She told me to feel free to photograph any time so I have gone back since when I am around during lupine season.  I've been watching them and since it wasn't a beach day I decided to go take some photos with my 70-200mm lens. I may go back with my macro and 24-70mm  in a day or two.

The peonies are opening . . . slightly and still make for some interesting photos! I think a few buds may open fully. They don't look too crinkled. My new vase arrived , too.πŸ₯° They have a beauty of their own. . . in a unique way.  There are a few buds that are not wrinkled and I think might still open.

Well, Holland Ridge Farms was very nice and refunded my money. It wasn't their fault my peonies didn't arrive. They mailed them Priority on June 1st.  They sat at the Nashua USPS from June 2nd until last night when they arrived at the Hampton PO.  This is what they looked like when they arrived!  Still hoping they open "a little!"

Tried my luck, with a side of skill thrown in, for Rotating ICM again.  Irises in the garden. I used my 70-200mm Nikon lens on a tripod where I could loosen the collar.  First 2 were partial rotation and the other 6 were full 360° rotation. This is one of the 360°  rotations. I like it❣️I flipped it upside down, but like it both ways.

Today I went to take a few pics in my neighbor’s yard and found these beautiful yellow irises in my yard with another patch that hasn’t bloomed.
And some irises and Columbine in my neighbor’s yard. Maybe I should stay home more often❣️
Also picked irises and brought them inside to play with macro. 
Taken with my Nikon 105mm 2.8 Micro lens

Used my Nikon 105mm 2.8 lens along with my Arsenal camera Assistant for some of them.  I need to try some Focus Stacking with the Arsenal Assistant one of these days.

A Photo A Day: Days 76-150 of 366 Photos of 2020!

As part of my #RetirementJoy I have started A Photo A Day: 366 Photos of 2020 to challenge myself to get up, get out there and practice, practice, practice my art to improve and excel! I will add each day to this Blog Post so that you can view them all in one place. The latest photos will be at the top. Decided to make them into 75 day Blogs.  Starting 2nd one on Day 76.

Day 150 of 366 Photos of 2020
After a wonderful Webinar by Hunt's Photo with guest, Laura L Gingerich  this morning, I got outside and tried changing settings with my camera to my eye and also did a few Impressionistic pics with in camera multiple exposure and Intentional Camera Movement.

Memorial Day 2020
"Those who have enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget  in tie that men have died to win them." ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
I was motivated to take a Road Trip 2 miles away to my favorite Flag spot in North Hampton when Don Toothaker put up the new 26x2 Challenge on the Hunt's Education FB page. 
They have added steer to the mix and the poor little sheep are quite afraid of them.  They stay in a pack and move as one to the opposite side of the field! Perhaps they will relax when they get used to them.  Fog rolled in giving a nice effect. 
I loved the one I called “Until the Cows Come Home,” but i do LOVE my little sheep so this photo wins for my Photo of the Day❣️

Day 145 of 366 Photos of 2020
As dandelions turn to seed, children everywhere rush to pick them, so that they can close their eyes, make a wish, and blow the seeds into the air. ... In addition to granting wishes, many people believe that dandelion seeds will carry your thoughts and dreams to loved ones when you blow them into the air.

A few pics from the yard. I had to clear some photos off of a SD card until my replacement arrives. Waiting for the irises to bloom. They are one of my favorite flowers.  I also photographed a few pics intentionally out of focus to try as backgrounds. This photo is  an image  with my own background.

It’s a GREAT day to be a WILDCAT❣️
I saw a post on FB a while ago asking if any alumni would like a yard sign delivered? They were originally for incoming freshman day but that didn’t happen and they were too expensive to ship. So they reached out to alum! And I said YES❣️ Made my day❣️

I need a lot of work with my Macro lens so I got out of “lazy mode” tonight and put my camera on a tripod to explore depth of field with my Macro lens. I’m a narrow depth of field type of gal. Here’s one of my brightly colored pens probably somewhere around an f3.3

Well, my camera card went bad and I lost today’s photos (even after running my photo recovery software😒) . . . Sooooooo my photo of the day is an iPhone photo of my leftover Shrimp Scampi from tonite. The camera photos were of my dinner in a beautiful bowl atop egg noodles (decided to have a change from linguine) but it is what it is.

Day 136 of 366 Photos of 2020
Baaaa Baaaa black sheep, have you any wool? 
 I took a ride to North Hampton this morning and I did park briefly in the bike lane by the sheep.  When I got out to take pics I noticed my SD card wasn't in my camera. I snapped a few with my phone and headed back home to pick it up.
Then i headed up Atlantic Ave. (Rte. 111) to get some barn/sheep photos with my camera. 
Next i headed up Willow Ave. and did some "Drive-By Pics" from my car. I really wanted more tulip photos but there really wasn't anywhere to park. With the apple blossoms I pulled over (on the wrong side of the road), hung out my window and got as close as I could to them. 
I did notice a lot more barrels blocking parking on Rte. 1A. I guess people were ignoring them! 
I know, I know; call me a rebel!

After my walk I returned to the marsh with my camera to see if the egret was still there, but the tide was coming in and he was gone.  I enjoyed the neighbor's tulips and a new flower blooming in the yard. The paper white opened up late in the afternoon. 
I love the heart-shaped leaf at the bottom of the frame in this photo❣️

Day 130 of 366 Photos of 2020
I tried a little “Rotation ICM” today but I couldn’t get 360 degree rotation with my camera on my tripod. After a few failed attempts on some tiger lily greens outside, I moved in and photographed the starfish design on my carpet❣️ I set my camera for a 5 sec. exposure at f22, ISO 200 at 38mm and walked quickly in a circle around the centerpoint of the starfish while trying to keep my feet out of the photo.

Day 129 of 366 Photos of 2020
I had to go out and work on my ICM after Don Toothaker, of Hunt's Education & Photo Walks, did a webinar last night on Intentional Camera Movement. I also saw tulips along a fence across the street so I HAD to snap a few photos of them as well. This ICM PHOTO is at beach at the end of High Street in Hampton. I was next to the closed parking lot where people normally play beach volleyball or sit on one of several benches to watch Mother Ocean❣️

Day #9 in NH of 2nd order from Holland Ridge Farms in NJ. My last post from them for this season. I'm posting with a grateful ❤️ for being able to enjoy nearly 3 weeks of beauty through 2 orders of Holland Ridge Farms tulips.  The tulips brought me joy (and lot of photos!) I will definitely order from them again if they do delivery in the future❣️🌷❣️

Day 126 of 366 Photos of 2020
Giving my fans another break from tulip photos. 😜 Here’s one of The May “Flower Moon”
The full moon of May, also called the Flower Moon, will occur the morning of Thursday, May 7, at 6:45 a.m. EDT (1106 GMT), according to NASA's SkyCal site. This full moon will come just two days after the moon reaches perigee, or the closest point to Earth in its orbit, making this a "supermoon," according to NASA.
If you choose a time, we can catch the moon
I'll see you there
Whenever it is, from wherever you are
Oh we'll find, yes we'll find somewhere.
Are you looking at the same moon?
~Phil Collins, “Same Moon”

Back to tulips for today’s photo❣️
Day #6 of my second Holland Ridge Farms Tulips delivery. The flowers have opened nicely and are sadly on their way out.  
Today, after snapping a few blooms, I started noticing little curls in the petals and decided to focus on those with some abstract photos.
I see a sleeping fairy’s face (side profile, face up) inside the curl of this photo with the hoodlike curl circling the eye with the point of it ending above the pink lips by the nose. Her golden wing is hanging down. Do you see it? 
Inspired by Chapter 1. Mindful Photography in Charles Needle’s  “Tiny Worlds” macro photography book. πŸ₯°

I am totally OBSESSED with these sherbet colored tulips from Holland Ridge Farms in NJ.. I can't get enough! The pinks, the salmon, the yellow edges. WoW, just WOW!  I LOVE them! And they change with the light as the day progresses and the direction of the light.
I did some ICM for a few and got a few that I liked a lot. BUT I love the contrast with the dark background and spectacular colors in this photo❣️🌷❣️

Day #6 and still loving my Holland Ridge Tulips.  Opening up now. I actually prefer the tulips pre-opening wide, but I do love the inside colors of the purple ones.  Last night I watched Mike Moats' video on How to Create Artistic, Dreamy, Soft Focus Flower Photography.
Today I used my 45mm 1.8 lens to try some.
On top of the dreamy pics I added some of Kathleen Clemons’ photography textures.
My creativity is flowing in abundance❣️

Day #5 of my Holland Ridge Farms Tulips.  Today I as greeted by a big whiff of fragrance coming from them.  Enjoy!
I explored some ROTATE effects from Charles Needle's Impressionistic Photography book again today. I like the results better than the Zoom effect, but need to explore some more. I set my 70-200mm lens on my tripod and loosened the ring so that I could easily rotate the lens.

I LOVE this photo because it shows the rotation yet you can still make out the tulips in the photo.❣️ Looks like a succulent plant.

My tulips continue to get more beautiful each day.  I cut the stems on an angle as recommended by Holland Ridge Farms and also put a copper "wheat' penny in the bottom of the Ball jar as recommended by friends. They seem less droopy and more "awake" after cutting the stems last night.

My first attempt at adding a textured background. 
The other day while I was on one of my FB Photo Groups, someone mentioned following flower photographer, Kathleen Clemons. I looked her up and she has some painted backgrounds for sale on her website.  I don't use Photos Shop much; I use LightRoom for 99.9% of my editing, but I decided to try something NEW!  Looking forward to exploring & sharing my images created with  more of these backgrounds.

Day 112 of 366 Photos of 2020
My tulips arrived today from Holland Ridge Tulip Farm in NJ.  Can't wait for them to open! You don't get to choose colors. It's a SURPRISE BOX!  Looks like purple with a yellow/red variegated. I used my 35mm 1.8 lens (that I hardly ever use) for the single buds. I had a colorful notebook on the table that provided some fun, vibrant color in the background.  For the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) photos I stood on a step ladder and shot down on the tulips in the vase while zooming in or out with my 24-70mm Nikon lens. 
Here’s one of my ICM photos❣️

Inspired by Chris Lutton's PS Twirl, I looked it up and had to try it myself!   This originally was a single azalea blossom. Fun technique to try. Here are 2 Twirls and the original image.

Yesterday was a busy day and I forgot to post this! πŸ™„
I finally got my time slot for Hannaford-To-Go so I had to go to Exeter this morning.  I got tipped off about the magnolia tree next to where I lived in Exeter. Even though it is starting to go by, it is still beautiful especially with the vinca minor (also known as creeping periwinkle or creeping myrtle) on the ground under the tree. I also took some new "Signs of the Time! Later in the day when I checked my mail I noticed the Japanese cherry tree blooming in the yard.

The other day when I drove up Rte. 1A the white egrets were out but I only had my 24-70mm lens with me.  Today I took a "Rye Road Trip" with my 70-200mm lens and my friends were having lunch in the marsh.  I also got a few more signs for my "Signs of the Times!" 
I practiced patience while waiting for one to take off❣️

Today a friend asked me to take some photos of the daffodils by the North Beach bath house and the ones by the gazebo in town. So I decided to head out and also to take some photos of thee "Signs of the Times" for the NH NOW Documentary Project. 
And YES, the ocean is still there!  Not too many people around 4 p.m..  There were a lot more at lunchtime!

Here’s one of today’s “Signs of the Times!”

A very rainy, windy day on the coast of NH today.  I decided to open the door to take a few Intentional Camera Movement shots.  

I love the movement while at the same time being able to see the tree branches and twigs on the left side of the image.

I was exploring some Intentional Camera movement using my silk flowers: Birds of Paradise, Lilies etc.. Vertical movement , horizontal movement and my favorite circular movement giving a very ethereal effect! All handheld with my Nikon d750 and my Tamron 45mm, f1.8 lens
My favorite with the motion dancing around the lily. ❤️ This was either circular or U-shaped movement.

The Pink Super Moon, largest of 2020.  I walked down the street, not to the beach, but just by the marsh. Handheld with a bumped up ISO.  I like the effect with the marsh grasses dark and mysterious!

Took a little walk in my neighborhood before the rain heads in tomorrow. Needed to go back because I didn't get the full sign lit up.  Went back out and I just "knew" the giant flag would be on the barn! Funny how the signage still didn't fully show up. Things that make you go Hmmmm!

Appropriate ‘Sign of the Times!’

Day 83 of 366 Photos of 2020
Drum, dance, laugh, sing, play, paint, draw, photograph! Take some time “to be,” to be your authentic self! 
This is a silk scarf I painted back in 2003.
Seventeen years ago, on March 20, 2003, the Iraq War started. I was living in LA and at the time my creative outlet was Silk Painting. I had moved, alone,  to the City of Angels in 2001, two weeks after being diagnosed with cervical cancer. I am overjoyed to say that 19 years later “I’m HaPpY, I’m Healthy, I’m Hungry” (my mantra during my nauseous time! ☺️)❤️  So as a diehard Celtics fan, I will admit that Laker Land holds a special place in my πŸ’š since it truly saved my life moving there! 
It seems like a lifetime ago, yet at the same time it seems like yesterday! It kept popping up in my mind last week (March 20th) as I photographed. Not so much the war, but the scarf I created during that time. 
I was taking a Silk Painting class at Otis College of Art & Design with Robin (I’m sure her last name will pop into my head later!) We continued our class at her artist loft apartment in the garment district of LA once the original class ended. That  loft was an artist’s dream! 
I can remember working on a particular piece when I heard the news of the war beginning. I painted abstract drummers & dancers with a starburst in the centergold of the scarf and used bright, vibrant colors! Now might be time to bring my djembe out as well! 
Silk painting , very much like watercolors, can be very therapeutic and soothing. I don’t have the space for silk painting anymore, but when I made plans for my #RetirementJoy I bought some Arteza watercolor brush markers with plans of creating a line of cards by printing some of my photos in black & white and adding watercolor to them. This could be the perfect time to launch that idea. Or maybe just some abstract designs without my photos. I’ll just see what evolves. 
I just noticed that the colors in my starfish rug are very close to those in my scarf! I’m still all about bright, vibrant colors. 😊
During these trying times, we have the opportunity to be brought to our authentic selves . . . who we are and are truly meant to be! How has this time changed you? What are you creating? What are you drawn to? How are you using this ‘forced slow down’ to make your world a better place for YOU that will have a ripple effect to others?
Tomorrow, March 24th, 2020 is the New Moon, a time to set our intentions & release them to the world. I may do some drumming to Michael Drake’s “Rhythms of the 7 Directions” ( https://youtu.be/qqTf8dAmiEo ). I may photograph, I may draw & paint. I may work on my Vision Board. I may reflect, journal and set my intentions. I may “just be.”
What will you do? ❤️ 
Peace ✌🏼☮️

My Ahhhhhhhh moment of the afternoon! 😊
I had a productive day being in my  decluttering, reorganizing, cleaning out mode! Took time for an outdoor photo break at low tide to get my Zen on! 
You’d think it was summah! Plaice Cove and North Hampton State Beach and the Beach Plum, all very busy. During tough times, people find “Peace at the Beach!” ✌🏼😎☀️🌊πŸ₯°
Lots of cars at the beaches but I think most must have been sitting in their cars because there weren't that many ON the beach! 😁It was beautiful!

Day 77 of 366 Photos of 2020
I LOVE this aqua vase, that my Mom made in ceramic class years ago, especially with pink tulips in it. Just something about that combination! πŸ’• 
Those of you who know me know that I LOVE spending time alone and am a homebody. Funny how it has a different feel when you are told that you "should" stay home as opposed to when you just choose to stay home. I imagine it could be very hard for those who need a lot of social interaction or don't like staying home, even when not alone. 
I continued with my cleaning out, rearranging and organizing my house today.  How do I accumulate so much "stuff" in such a short period of time? 
I relocated some of the "stuff" which will need to be cleaned out of the storage room now! (eyeroll), trashed some of the "stuff" and organized some of the "stuff."
One of my rearrangements was my kitchen/dining  table which I moved in front of my little fireplace electric heater.  I think I like it! But then again I rearrange quite often so it may not stay there very long!

Ordering Charles Needle’s Impressionistic Photography book because I really love his style!
