May Day May Day

It is May! Already! I’m not ready…   It seems like just yesterday that I was posting to the blog and there was snow on the ground.   I have photographs to take!  An evening surrounded by chocolate at the the AWP Chocolate Lover’s Fundraiser More photographs to take!  Birthdays to celebrate…  my two kids who are three years apart but only two calendar days apart (not to mention a couple nephews, a neice, a brother, and, of course, my dad) ♥ Mother’s Day ♥ And even more photographs to take! My road trip… super excited! ♥ Then prepping for and finishing up the month with friend & co-femme fotog and our first arts fest of the season. Squeeze in a little bit of the day job here and there and …whew…I wouldn’t have it any other way!♥!♥!

Til next time,

p.s. If anybody can tell me more about Tara Chishom (who is credited across the internet with the above quote), I would be very appreciative, as Google wasn’t much help in finding her.  Oh, there are plenty of Tara Chisholms out there, I’m just not sure which one to credit.

It is the courage to continue . . .


Do your photos talk to you?  In my search tonight for a photo that would make a nice note card that would “speak” to runners, I found that I gravitated towards photos that spoke to me.   This one in particular spoke loud and clear.  The start of the race, the pack,  the green lights.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  It was actually 5 years ago that I ran my very first 5k . . . this 5K!  And on Saturday, it will be my third year that I will be shooting this race for the Chalfont Borough and the first time for the Bucks 5K Series.  It was just about three years ago that I hung up my running shoes and picked up my camera. What’s that saying . . . when one door closes, another opens . . . well you get the idea.

Speaking of sayings, I also found that finding just the right saying or quote to translate what the photo says to me and something the viewer can appreciate is quite a challenge.    I have a new appreciation for those motivational posters you see at A.C. Moore (a local craft/art store for you out of towners).   I don’t know if I really hit the mark here for the runners, but for me it pretty much sums up that first 5K and so many challenges since then . . .
