I've been in a bit of a blogging slump for the past few weeks. I'm lucky if I get one or two posts done. I was looking back a my older posts and noticed the same thing happening, around this time, for the past few years. I blame the weather. (All Seattleites blame the weather.) I struggle with photography this time of year. In turn, I struggle with blogging because of the struggle with photography. Most of the time, I use photos as inspiration for what I'd like to write.
The process goes like this....
bake something, pretty light hits it, grab the camera, snap a few photos, edit, and blog it
When you leave for work when it's dark and get home from work as it's getting dark, the chances of pretty light hitting your homemade cookies are slim.
So, friends, I have nothing new. But, here are a few of my favorite photos to keep you coming back.
The first two were from my Food Photography class.
'Cause every blogger should know how to take pictures of food. It helps that a professional chef prepared the food!
Ahh. What I wouldn't give for a warm summer day.
And one more... just because I love taking pictures of "stuff" around my house.
(Side story: When I was sewing with my daughter's class, I brought my computer. I needed to know which child made which quilt block and I had all of the pictures on my computer. One of the boys asked if he could look at my pictures. I told him they were pretty boring, but he was welcome to look. The next few questions out of his mouth made me giggle. "Um, why do you take pictures of soup? Why are there so many of those donut pictures? Fabric... Really? Don't you ever take pictures of people?" I had a hard time explaining the purpose of my blog.)
Here's to finding some inspiration!
