1. Against the Light
I took this backyard picture of the grass blooms "Against the Light" of the morning sun rising. I caught on camera the beginning of another beautiful day.
2. Frame Within a Frame
The door frames are reflected in the framed mirror hanging in my foyer. I like the contrast of light and dark in this photo, depicting frame within a frame.
3. Best Part of Your Day
This one was easy for me...I'm totally a morning person and I love exercise, so the best part of my day is riding my bike in the morning and enjoying the peacefulness and beauty of the countryside, before the busy day begins for most.
My grandmother, who I never really knew (she died when I was 1 year old) was a seamstress and my mother had saved many of the buttons that she had in her collection of goodies. My mother told stories about the advantages to having a mother who could sew anything...she would look through Vogue magazine and pick out an outfit she liked and her mother would make it for her. I have an old box filled with some of the treasured notions, so it was perfect for photographing. If only some of these buttons could talk...
This is a page from my grandmother's cookbook (probably close to 100 years old). Of course back then all of the recipes were hand-written in ink. And the pages even had a few stains probably from the butter, milk or other ingredients used to make the goodies...
