Spring?



"The front door to springtime is a photographer's best friend.:  -  Terri Guillemets
"The sun has come out... and the air is vivid with spring light."  
 -  Byron Caldwell Smith, letter to Kate Stephens
"Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul."  -  Henry Ward Beecher


The sun has been shining.  It brightens my day.  
  
I am cautiously optimistic that the early spring weather will continue, our snow is almost melted, the temperatures are above freezing and we may see a 60 degree high temperature this week.




I have become rather lax about my winter gratitude list.  (You can read my first list here.)  I do keep it in mind, even if I don't officially write anything down.  My winter gratitude list has really helped me keep a better attitude about winter.  I plan to continue my gratitude journal because it seems if I count my blessings, I find even more to be thankful for.  I keep an eye out for blessings to write down, or just acknowledge, and guess what?  I always find something, no matter how small, to be grateful for.  It reminds me how wonderful life is truly is...  

Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday and the class Be Still.  The assignment for Be Still was Glass...Light...Shades of white...Airy.  I textured my images with Kim's texture mondays.

Thank you for stopping by!!
Have a great week!!

  2. Lovely photos, Michelle. You've nailed the airy, light, shades of white brief beautifully. Your winter gratitude list is a very positive way to approach the tail end of a difficult season. If possible I think it's always best to focus on the good things: "Smile and the World smiles with you", in the words of the song. All the best and wishing you lots of warm spring sunshine, Bonny

  3. A little bit of sun makes such a difference, doesn't it? Your images are beautiful.
    Finding beauty in small things and being grateful for them - it does make things lighter, life easier. And there is always something to find to be grateful for, things we often take for granted.

  7. Oh Michelle, I seriously LOVE your images! Yup, you surely nailed the light and airy!
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I normally don't shoot at night either (LOVE the natural light) but if I can't get it, I'm not afraid of the dark....... It at least feeds the camera hunger.

  9. I love these light, airy photos! I wanted to do some this week but so far it's rain, rain and more rain to come. But as soon as I get some brightening of any kind, I'm going to be out on the back porch with bottles and vases and whatever I can think of. My soul needs it. Great idea about the winter gratitude list. The spring gratitude list will be much easier!

  11. I just adore the dreamy quality of the last photo. So awesome! I just want to touch it. I should work on a gratitude list. Especially before the holidays when I get in a funk. I will put this on my list for October for sure.

  14. Warming up here too and the snow is melting. Now we have water and mud, but it will be so worth it in the long run.
