When I was a little girl I was fascinated by Holland. I loved the traditional costumes, the windmills, and wooden shoes… so, I guess it would come as no surprise that I also loved tulips.
I thought I had out grown my "tulip phase" until we moved to Williamsburg and I found myself looking forward to the lovely tulips planted throughout Busch Gardens (aka "the park") each spring.
When the park opens each year you'll find me strolling around with camera in hand. I like to take shots from several angles. I am always looking for the angle that will create a great Mosaic Moments™ cut.

I am also looking for that angle that will get me the most interesting shots. Lighting plays such a big roll in photo taking. In this case, I loved how the sunlit tulips (below) seemed to glow when viewed against the shadowed back drop.
I hope today is a good day for you and your camera to take a walk. You don't want to miss out on those first signs of spring! :)
Spring Soccer Season is about to begin - again. I have a ton of photos from last season; so, this year, I am giving myself a challenge to "change it up." I want to improve my sports photography skills and get a lot more interesting shots.
One thing I will be paying more attention to this year is the "sports accessory" shots. ie rows of parents sitting in folding chairs, team uniforms being passed out, and of course - the balls, in and out of play.

What are your GOALS for shooting the coming spring activities?
I've told you before how terrible I am at keeping secrets. I guess I m finally going to park the mystery machine in the drive way! :)
It has been REALLY hard not to chat about my current project. I've been watching it develop and getting very excited as more and more of the "pieces" come together. Knowing how these things can go (two steps forward, three steps back...) I realize that telling you "what's coming" is really such a tease! I mean, I can't say for sure when... but, have you guessed yet?
Mosaic Moments in Digital™ is on its way!
Just a little hint at the possibilities...
Notice the time stamp under each of the thumbnails. In a little under 1 hour - Nine finished 12x12 designs.
I can't wait for summer to come back. (I haven't gotten out much lately with all the coughing and sniffling at my house.) I am ready for warm days and outdoor walks. My longing for warmth and sunshine got me thinking about some of my favorite photo subjects...
Mosaic Moments Photo !nspiration: Week 9
love to take pictures of butterflies. They are sometimes not the most
cooperative subjects; but, then again, neither is my 8 year old son! Along with the butterflies I like to take pictures of the flowers they are sitting on. When I put together a page I can feature the butterflies and use the flowers as mosaic cut details.
What have you been longing to take pictures of lately?
