Wandering Camera Revival

 

 

A couple of years ago I decided to take one photo per day for 365 days to expand my photography skills.   At the same time, I also hosted a linky party called Wandering Camera and invited you to join me by linking up your monthly photos.  Project 365 ended, and so did Wandering Camera.  Since then I have travelled quite a bit and have taken a LOT of photos.  Sadly though, they have stayed locked up in the darkness of my digital storage.

 

 

 

 

I am getting back to photography and Wandering Camera is also making a return.

On the last Thursday of every month, I would love for you to join me by linking up your photos.  Posts with your project photos (sewing, painting, etc.) are most welcome as well.

You can add any number of links to your posts from the previous month, or write a new post to link up.  It was a lot of fun last time, and I can’t wait to see your posts again.  The first link-up with be in June.

I have already started wandering with my camera again.

 

 

 

 

Last week it was fairly cloudy outside, perfect weather for flower photography.  Despite my deadly allergies, I hazarded spending a little time outside in the garden, taking photos.

 

 

 

 

I don’t do much macro/close-up photography.  Every now and then I get the urge to play with that though, and flowers make great subjects.  So out I went, camera stand in the crook of one arm and camera dangling from the other.

 

 

 

 

Knowing how much I love iris and larkspur, Mary from Needled Mom, sent me a box of iris rhizomes and a packet of larkspur seeds from her garden.  Thank You so much, Mary!

 

 

 

 

Now they are blooming in our garden and swaying in the wind.

 

 

 

 

All those flower photos made me finish this drawing of thistle flowers based on photos I took in Scotland.  I started this drawing so long ago, now I can finally start painting it.

 

I love capturing the world with my camera.  Sometimes the world is right outside my door.  I hope you will join me once more on Wandering Camera.  Last time I found new pages and made new friends, looking forward to doing that again.

    What a great idea to try and release some photographs from their digital jail! I must try and remember to join in as I have thousands of photographs stored from all our travelling.

    Beautiful photos! I love taking macros, and especially of flowers. It’s so nice to look closely and see all the beautiful details. Most of my photos, unfortunately, tend to stay parked on my hard drive too. Sometimes I wonder why I bother carrying my heavy camera around at all. You make me want to go out for a wander with my camera too now!

    Love the softness of the colors in your post, Soma! Wishing you great success in your revival of your previous meme!:) Am curious how your painting of the thistles is going to turn out! Be sure to keep us up to date at All Seasons. Have a bright and summery week (not too hot):)

    Your photos remind me again that photography is indeed art. I’ve never thought about making a sketche of one of my photos and painting it. Guess what I’m going to do soon. :-)

    So beautiful photos! I’m glad, that Wandering Camera will be back, whithout it I never had found you…
    Allergies are very bad, I well know this, sigh! I make a self-therapy with gluten and casein free nutrition since last september. It helps a lot, but the nutrition is truly a torture (especially, when you have a very small pension and cannot buy alternative foods), not sure, should I advise it –
    And I hope, that I can go back to normal foods in 1-2 years.
    Enjoy your time :)

    Your flower photos are breathtaking! Taking close-ups of flowers is my favorite photography thing to do. I love to see all the details in the flowers and to occasionally catch a bug in the picture. I’ll try to join in on your Wandering Camera this time. :O)
