I’ve never shared an all black + white week (I don’t think)….so I thought, why not?! I also realized that every image here was shot with my 105mm macro lens. Not all of them are “macro” shots. If you like, you can see a recent post of my macro images here! Here is week 45 of my 365 project. I’m sharing images 309-315 from May 10-16. Annnnnd, I am linking up with the lovely ladies of and then we snapped. Seriously, I would’d have given this project up 44 times over if not for throe support! You can check out their work starting with the incredibly talented Cynthia Dawson. Here we goooo! Next, stop by and see what Cynthia snapped! She is a true talent, and I’m always wowed by her work!
June was full of water, and it came in a variety of forms. We (finally!) welcomed the return of warmer days, which meant playing in the sprinklers, splashing in swimsuits, and visits to our local beaches and lakes. We also experienced heaps of rain, which actually caused some flooding, but at least it was was good for a little puddle-jumping in the rain boots! Here’s what our Minnesota in June looked like! Thank you so much for stopping by to see My Minnesota in June. You can continue the blog circle by visiting Tina Fisher’s blog. And, you can check out her Facebook fan page here!
April’s melting snow and warmer temperatures made way for trips to the park, puddle jumping, and muddy adventures. We had so much outdoor fun, that I’ve decided to share our shenanigans in two parts. So, here are some of my favorites of my silly girls from the beginning of April.
Well, the spring weather came for a couple days and then it left again :(. We got another snowstorm last week, and in an effort to keep things positive, I let the girls go swimming…in the bathtub! They were very excited to get such a treat, and stayed in the water well past the raisiny-finger stage. I had fun watching them “swim” and play, and was so intrigued at watching them interact with each other. They are close in age, but have starkly different personalities. My little one is fierce and independent, observant and a real dare-devil. But, as I watched through my lens, I noticed she’s still very much in awe of her big sister, imitating her at every chance. My first-born is gentle, cautious, emotional and kind-hearted. Can you guess who each girl is?
Here are a few more images I was inspired to take while participating in the Magic of Light workshop at The Bloom Form. This is a series I shot in my basement using only window light. Oh, and pardon the dust 😉
