Photos of the Week: May 8th

Oh boy did I struggle this week with quite a few of the prompts.  In fact 3 of my photos were taken on the same day because I finally decided I just needed to shoot SOMETHING and make it work.  All in all I am really happy with what I came up with!



-Mail I received a beautiful mother's day card in the mail from my mother in law. 



-How You Feel Today Like I was hanging on by a thread... 



-Reduce-Reuse-Recycle Every spring I reuse the same grapevine wreath to make a new floral wreath for our front door. 



-Shoot from the hip I had so much fun with the idea of shooting from the hip that I took multiple landscape images using this technique. 


-Your Choice
These clusters of pinecones in the sun caught my eye while out hiking this week.

  4. Great pictures! I really like the one of the pinecones. And finding different angles (like shooting from the hip!) is always fun. Prompts like "how you feel today" are always really tricky for me!

    These are all great shots, love them all!! What a great idea to re use the same grapevine wreath, I had thought about it a few seasons ago, but then didn't do it but also never purchased another wreath so I've not decorated any more besides the one I

    1. As the end of the school year approaches I thought things would get easier but they feel like they are ramping up... only 5 weeks left to go AND they're suppose to return to fully in person next week so I'm hoping it will feel easier with less snafus to navigate.
