Lighthouse at Sunrise

I had the opportunity to go to Marblehead, Ohio up near Lake Erie for the weekend to celebrate my anniversary.  It was such a lovely time.  One morning it was windy making the lake look more like an ocean with crashing waves.  The next morning it was a peaceful lake full of fishermen and sailors.

This is the Marblehead Lighthouse, which I think is the oldest lighthouse on the Great Lakes.  It was beautiful.  I did a lot of photography, and this first one is one of my favorites.

Prints are available here for those that are interested.

Seashells and Driftwood

Today is a good day to be near the water, so here’s one of my recent photographs of  seashells and driftwood that has been added to my beach decor gallery at my print site.  Summer has been good so far!

Prints available here.

Shells on Black Background

Here are little seashells to remind you of the ocean!  I like the white against the black background with a little splash of color from the shells.  The heavy use of black in the image might be a little different from the typical beach decor, but I like the bold look.

You can see more beach/shell images and find available prints here.

Swirls

In honor of the first week of summer, I thought I’d share some of my seashell or beach related photographs.  I’ll start off with one of my favorites, a macro photograph of a seashell with its beautiful swirl design and soft colors.

Too Sick For Art?

Too sick for art?  Nonsense, right?  That’s what I’ve been telling myself over the last few days that I’ve been sick at home.  I’m not so sick that I’m confined to my bed, but just sick enough that I can’t do much or go outdoors.  To keep myself from getting bored, I pulled out my camera in attempts to find a creative outlet through macro photography.  One of the reasons I love macro photography is that there seems to be an endless supply of interesting things to photograph because it helps us to see things from such a different perspective.  It can take the ordinary and make it very beautiful and creative.  And, when I’m sick, I can set up some photo opportunities right on my couch.  Here are a few of my favorites.
