Photos of the week

The purpose of this photograph was to capture the essence of elegance portrayed by an extra dining room chair up against the wall under the painting. Anyone who watches any type of design show on television has seen the unused chairs up against the wall by a piece of art. I guess had I been a magazine photographer, I would have spotted the outlet in the photo and hid it by positioning the chair leg in front of it. Lesson learned :)

I thought it might be interesting to try and capture the precarious position of the pup's toys. They are stacked in our log rack by the fireplace. Brody loves to go in there and raid the toys.

I knew what I wanted to photograph this day, but never took the time to actually take the picture.

Earlier during the day one of my AP students was telling me how many books she had on her bookshelf. It got me thinking that perhaps an angled shot that captured the different sizes, would be interesting. This would a shelf of one of my many bookcases throughout the house.

No photography ideas this night, so I took a photo of the norm that is seen in my kitchen each night-stacked dishes.I liked how the light was bouncing off them casting a shadow. Do you see them?

Yesterday was my favorite photography day this past week. I just couldn't choose one photograph to share with you, so I'll leave you with several favorite captured moments of this gorgeous day.

Hopefully my photography has inspired you to pick up your camera and not only capture those special moments, but everyday life as well.
See you next week!
