New Website

I broke down and bought a website awhile back, hoping to look more professional and maybe someday sell some photos. I really didn't want to announce it until I got the theme looking exactly like I want it, but that has proven difficult. I'm a photographer, not a web designer! I know a little CSS, but no .php. Try to focus on the photos :)

Website Under Construction

I'm moving to a "real" website that hopefully will be more professional. I don't know how long it will take, but I'll let y'all know!

Bead Blocks

I found these beads in a drawer and loved the colorful stripes. I had fun stacking them up, moving them around and changing the focus. They came out just how I wanted them too.

Connection, originally uploaded by Orchid Photo.

I noticed the spirals on the right-hand limb, and then I realized they were created by the left-hand limb reaching out and wrapping around. I'm not a philosophical person really, but it made me think about different connections, and also how people can grow together over time.

'Moses in a Basket' & Raindrops

This was originally named 'Purple Plant & Raindrops' but thankfully my friend Jessica knows the real name :)

This might be the best raindrop macro I've gotten so far. I've been envying other people's techniques with this on Flickr (and I'm still not as good). Cate at has some great raindrop macros, so check those out for more.

KC & Cate in Sepia

This was toward the end of our fabulous day with Cate & KC at Bull Creek. A tired KC came over to get some love from Cate. I love her expression!

I got SO much bokeh, wheeeee! Kevin and I spent Sunday afternoon at Bull Creek in the most awesome spot that Cate found. Denali and KC got to see each other again, swim, chase each other, fight over sticks etc. The adults got to laugh at them and get a lot of sun. And photos, of course.
