Oh! I’m so excited that Spring is finally coming…(although we had a few snow flurries today)…I’m certain more and more color will arrive and be waiting for me to photograph it soon! Yeah!!!
Well today, along with these NEW daffodils and grape hyacinths, I want to share a couple of other NEW miscellaneous/random items that have caught my attention lately:
Here’s a NEW photography tip I learned this week, called the Sunny 16 Rule. Interesting! Since photography is very subjective to a variety of factors of conditions and camera settings, I was a bit surprised that this ‘Rule’ even existed. Too bad I didn’t learn this rule in the dead of winter, when I could’ve practiced it on the white landscape of December, January and February! Oh well, maybe next year!
Another random thing…I just have to say how much I LOVE being in a book club. First, it pretty much forces me to read books I’m sure I wouldn’t come across and read on my own. (And they have ALL been REALLY GOOD books)!!! But I think my favorite thing about my book club is listening to different perspectives. It’s kind of an added education, all its own. This month’s book was Unraveled by Julie Daines….
…and it was so interesting to hear the other women in the group comment how they’d really like their daughters to read this book. Since I have only sons, these thoughts obviously didn’t enter my mind, but I can absolutely understand their perspective…when I think about it. The book has a strong message about the importance of appreciating our inner-beauty – something I too would like my daughter to read (if I had a daughter)! I just really love reading and sharing thoughts about the books we’ve read in our group. If you don’t belong to a book club….FIND ONE TO JOIN! Seriously! 🙂
Have a great Monday! Do or Learn Something NEW!!!
