These orchids were so beautiful, and I really wanted to photograph them in a way that expressed what I felt when I saw them - inspiration. Growing up, towards the light, from this perspective reminded me to strive for what I really wanted and needed in life.
Just go with it
I was really struggling with glare spots and couldn't get rid of them. So I embraced the concept, & climbed around on the hill until I could maximize the effect!
Remembering a very pretty pose and sunshine on this freezing day!
Not wanting to venture into the cold anymore, I started trying to find whatever I could to photograph. I love finding great subjects right under my nose to play with different perspectives of space!
It was 0°, horrible lighting, snowing heavily, and my fingers were beyond numb. But the awful, eery lighting actually turned out to be fun with the mist rising up and all the beautiful textures!
This deer was reaching for any food it could find in this cruel winter we've had, but it looked so sweet as if it were giving air kisses!
Mill Pond in Winter
Mill Pond in South Milwaukee at sunset. Although it's freezing out, there is still so much beauty!
On our morning walk I bent down to fix my boot, and noticed my dog staring intently... at (likely) nothing. I loved how the perspective drew me in, blocking out everything but him at this moment so that I didn't even care what he saw!
