Camera And Photo Linky Party | Whims And Fancies

 

Welcome to the month of October’s Wandering Camera linky party.  This photography project has been a wonderful experience for me so far.  I can’t thank you enough for visiting, for your lovely comments and for sharing your photos.

I experimented a lot with my camera in September.  I took photos of subject matter that is new to me.  I also played a lot with light, specially with sunlight.  I like photographing into the sun to see what effect that has on my photos.

Here are my photos from the month of September –

Telephone Box Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies

 

Working on Wandering Camera and creating the Lego Harry Potter quilt patterns is hardly leaving me any time for other sewing projects.  I have a stack of printed patterns sitting on my desk, waiting to be stitched.  However, while I was going through some old photos, I came across a few travel photos from the past.  I had to sneak in a little bit of drawing time on the computer to create this pattern and share a little peek with you.  Hopefully I will be able to sew it soon.

 

As I was compiling the sets, I was thinking how looking at every photo always evokes certain memories for me.  Places, surroundings, sounds, activities, just to name a few.

Then I came across this video.  Photography is so much more than just learning techniques.  So instead of writing a tutorial today, I will leave you with this –

 

Update – Unfortunately the video has been removed from youtube.

  

How amazing is that!!  Lets keep those shutters clicking.  Now it’s your turn to share.  I can’t wait to see your photos!!
