April Challenge

Spring is here – the season of eternal hope! Here in Alaska the winters are soooo long and dark. I am really enjoying the longer days and bluebird skies!

As an artist, I am always working to get better. I have already come a long way! In the beginning filters and presets were life! Surely, I am not the only one that went through that phase!  I understand the basics of photography…the triangle of exposure (ISO, shutter speed, aperture – blah, blah, blah) but I am still defining my style. This is the fun part of being a creative! Your style is ever-evolving.

I made a promise to myself to take at least one good picture a day – this can be a challenge after working 12 hours in the OR passing gas 😉 (I’m a nurse anesthetist). But, no matter what I pick up my camera and capture one moment a day! So I thought it would be fun to have a “Spring Challenge” – really I just want to share my art and more importantly see what other photogs are creating!

Here are a few from Easter Sunday. Egg Hunts are very different in Alaska compared to home in the Midwest….poor kid has to dig eggs out of the snow. It’s not cold – but the snow is still lingering. Also, what is it about a little boy dressed like an old man? Suspenders are the most darling thing ever!

I hope some fellow creatives will join the challenge and share some Spring-Themed moments!
