A Point of View


The Daily Post Photo Theme – Scale

This photo was taken after an overnight flight to Dublin, Ireland. We dropped off our bags at the hotel and headed right to Trinity  College to see The Book of Kells. While waiting for it the exhibit to open, I was taking photos around the campus and this sculpture caught my attention. I took the shot from below and it varied the scale, making the art appear much larger in relationship to the buildings around it.

Finding My Purpose

Dare to live

Purpose is the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

I am an aspiring artist, photographer and designer. This empty nester is looking for my creative purpose. My background and career before becoming a parent was in advertising and design. Although I enjoyed the creativity, after having my children I knew I wanted to be home to raise them. I have found that through the years of doing volunteer work and supporting my girl’s activities that I really enjoy photography and have always loved the fine arts.

Now I find myself taking it seriously, trying to keep up in todays technology and finding my personal creative style. I am currently taking a self guided photography class, new painting class, stepping in to produce a yearbook and giving a try at a lifelong dream of illustrating a children’s book.

I am by no means a writer, but keeping a blog has been a way to share with friends and family my inner voice, what I see and love. It is also a way to connect and share with other creatives out there… learning and being inspired by others as I wish to inspire as well.

I hope you will come along on my journey as I document my adventures in creativity.



Iced Maple

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Depth.”


Photo Challenge – Depth

I enjoy shooting Depth of Field photos and blurring out the background. In this shot I love the layers of iced branches on our Japanese Maple tree. Not every one is in perfect focus but it really creates a depth in layers and you can feel how cold it was that morning!
