A View from my part of the world

I love to take photographs and enjoy experimenting with my camera.

When I saw Soma's challenge to take a photo each day, I was intrigued and set out to capture my part of the world.   I didn't quite manage to take photos every day but here are some of my favorites.

We had a storm in January that dumped mainly sleet but then dusted it off with snow.

Since a lot of my blog in progress photos are taken inside, I need to practice choosing the correct settings on my camera to get the best photo from available lightening.   See the artistically staged dust in this first photo?


I've committed myself to taking a walk everyday.  Some times with a friend and sometimes just me and a podcast.   There is a beautiful lake near my home and after I did the walk around the lake trying to avoid the mud, I grabbed my camera.

I love that little pink in this photo from a young girl feeding the ducks.

There you go - this is a view from my part of the world.

I'll be joining the linky part at Whims and Fancies here.

Happy Stitching!


  1. You don't perhaps live in the Apex-Raleigh area? Looks familiar. Lived in that area for 25 years before I left for Montana!

  2. artistically staged dust - I love it. That's what I'll be using from now on. :)

    Your photos are lovely.

  3. Lots of artistic dust around here :) You have some very nice snow and nature pics here...I think the leaves cupping the snow is my favorite...and Fred? really? You name plants :) I had a rubber tree plant named Boris in college. So many stories I could tell about dear Boris!

  4. Thank you so much for linking up. Yours photos are really beautiful! I enjoyed every one of them. I love that you name your plants! That is fantastic :)


  5. I've joined the Wandering Camera challenge too. Next month, I hope to do what you've done, shown us your world! And what a lovely one it is.
