They are in full bloom here in South Town. So beautiful! I love how they dance in the wind. Makes it a little difficult for good macro shots though. Enjoy

Schiele Museum of Natural History and Planetarium

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July Weekend. This past week I took my children to the Schiele Museum in Gastonia NC. The main exibit is the CAVES which I highly recommend you see. The images below are from various parts of the Natural Trail. My favorite part was the Mill. Enjoy.

Manic Monday

Monday's are always crazy in my world. Regardless if the kids are in school or not, Mondays top the list as the craziest day of our week. And can I add that our pool is CLOSED on Mondays! In the South where its 90+ degrees and consistently hazy, hot and humid, a closed pool should be illegal but I digress.
Still on the macro kick. I took these images yesterday in my backyard. I think the reason I love Macro photography is because it gets your imagination going. You try to guess what you are looking at, what the object looks like as a whole and what type of setting the object is in. Please enjoy and have a great Monday.

Happy Father's Day

Good Morning and Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there including my own. So I have become a little obsessed with photographing flowers here recently. They are fairly easy subjects to work with. No worries about coordinating with their schedules, they don't talk back, they seem to enjoy getting their picture taken and I don't have to get them to sign a model release. So of course the natural progression would be to jump in and start to learn Maco photography. I have quickly learned that I am not a stable person. Physically for sure! Mentally, well that's up for debate depending on the day :) I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them.

The Matthews Farmers Market Watchdog

Unfortunately I was very late getting to the Matthews Farmers Market today. Upon leaving I spotted this pretty plant growing randomly and wild alongside one of vendor stands near the entrance. such a pretty and delicate little thing

Beauty in My Backyard

I wanted to share the beautiful Lily's that are in full bloom in my backyard. I'm embarrassed to say I don't know what type of flower the last picture is but it's just starting to bloom and is very pretty. Spring and early Summer are definitely my favorite times of year in the South. Please enjoy

A Walk Through Charleston SC

A very very quick trip to Charleston SC. 2 blocks was all I was able to see but I am still happy with the images I captured.
