a NEW quote that i somehow missed


Happy Sunday!  Here’s a quote I ran across recently which I LOVED…and I also love that it is referenced to this great man:  President Dieter F Uchtdorf!  However, I’m pretty sure I listened to this talk (I just don’t remember that quote…maybe I just needed my memory jogged!)  The talk was ‘Grateful in Any Circumstances”.  Such good advice!


Have a great day!  Do or Learn or jog your memory with something NEW!

ps: This quote was on pinterest and it wasn’t linked to a site where I could give credit to the graphic designer.  Sorry!  (I really would if I could :o)



a NEW iPhone Friday Photo


I took this photo on my phone on JUNE 17th!  It was rainy in the valley and snowy in the mountains that day!  Around here we say, ‘If you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes and it’ll change!’

This view was from a ‘Parade of Homes’ house my sister and I were touring through…they had a lovely view of the mountains, but they were covered in fog and clouds that day.   Have a great Friday!  Do or Learn something NEW!

trying out a NEW photography tip


I recently read this article titled, “The Photography Tips that 96 Photographers Wish They Would’ve Learned Sooner”  and I thought there were some really good ideas in it.  I’ve been known to ‘Go out shooting’ and hope something would pop out and inspire me.  But today, I tried to implement Lesson #1 from the article.   I envisioned this shot, planned and then created it.  You’ll probably find this shocking, but it wasn’t raining today….I spritzed the window with water from a spray bottle!  Before I read this article, I might have felt like that was cheating!  🙂

Next, I’ll have to work on Lesson #2, because I could REALLY get better at reading my histogram.

Have a great day!  Do or learn something NEW!
