c & c photography assignment ~ light & abstract

of sadness....
our class with camilla and carolyn has come to an end.

here is my last assignment.
we were to focus on light....
i do love LIGHT.

you can see the details of the assignment on their lovely site.
i headed to the trail in search iof at least one prairie crocus.
it's a little early for blooms around our parts.
i found several, along with a surprise. :)

close up #1

close up #2
different angle and a surprise guest


and wow!
pretty darn cool

and for my reflection images

i have a whole stash of pond images.  but i took this one today while andy was cooling off.

the browny green is the reflection...
not necessarily the prettiest image, but a pretty cool reflection.

and a landscape
i took this yesterday while john and i were out scouting for abandonment.
(sweet little crooked shed)

my favorite image from the workshop
not sure why?  just cause... :)


"class reflections"

i found i tend to overthink things when an assignment is involved. :)
i "flow" much freer when i am just doing my thing...

i already know that i leave things til the last minute.  and this class was no exception.

i discovered some incredibly kind and super talented people thru this journey.
cheers to you all!

i'm so grateful for this amazing, uplifting community that photography
has introduced me to.

this class was a gift.
a true gift.

thank you camilla & carolyn.

love to you... ♥ kim

happiest weekend....xxo

Unbelievably beautiful, Kim! That crocus is stunning and the ladybug...what a great bonus. Your reflections are so pretty, too, and the shed, of course.

Your flower close ups are great Kim! And what luck to have a ladybug helper stop on by to give you tose amazing shots there! I find soooo much of photography are taking advantage of those by chance fleeting moments. I'm so glad to have found you through this workshop.

and a giggle.

I do so love your photos, and have enjoyed seeing your assignments...the ladybug shot is truly amazing! I tend to wait to the last minute too, I always need a deadline it seems. But sometimes that is when I do my best work...
