~ nature's umbrella ~

This is a shot from late summer of some of my cosmo leaves. I loved how it looks like an umbrella... I needed a vision of summer today.........

~ 1 -1 - 11 ~

A new year.......a blank canvas.
 I took this photo out of the window on my way to my moms house for Christmas. With the beauty of the simplicity and wide open space....I knew this would be my first photo for 2011. 

I have been feeling the need to simplify......today we were cleaning, throwing, sorting and organizing and decluttering.  It feels good.....I have a few more closets to tackle yet but we got alot done today.

Kim Klassen and others have posted a prompt to pick a word for 2011. I pondered and pondered and this word kept coming back to me.  INSPIRE .
I have been so inspired by so many photographers on flickr, learning new things and have even had others say that I have inspired them.  I just feel this year will be a big year for me for Inspiration....I have some challenges and goals I have set for myself for this year to accomplish and improve on. I want to take more photography classes in person and online and try to improve my skills this year. There are so many great photographers out that that have inspired me to keep learning more and push my boundaries.  

This stark white blanket of snow meeting the sky and this wonderful old abondoned house inspired me to make this vintage looking and make it look like an old postcard . 

  So heres to a great year! 
INSPIRE........the perfect word for me for 2011.
