    Sharing some of my work with newcomers!

    I haven't posted much lately, simply because I've been doing a challenge with a group of friends, doing illustrations ever single day, according to a list. I've always drawn, but much rarely since I do photography, but with all the AI art that is floating around, makes us want to do some of our...

    From the past...

    You'll see most (virtually all) of my photos in the macro forum, but I needed to do a photo with the theme "From the past" so I cobbled this still life together.... They were all found at my late mother-in-laws house and date back to various ages from the past: Brass vintage soap dish...

    iPhone versus 50MP Medium Format GFX for Still Life

    I get complaints when I invest my time, effort and skill in developing an image concept with a mobile phone! Here I was attracted to the bright red seeds that are pushed out of the dried remnants of magnolia flowers. I paired them with dark plums.

    Retrospective of my tulips.

    Since a few years I've been taking pictures of tulips and posting them here, but at the end of last year, the cost of my website kept creeping higher and higher and I finally let it go. It did have consequences though and all the images I had posted here were hosted on said website which left...

    Some lovely poppies.

    I have friends that have a beautiful zen garden and for the second time this year I've gone to visit it. This last weekend, I had a helper so brought along some black and white foam core to separate some flowers from the myriad of flowers growing there. I so enjoyed my time and would like to...

    Moments of Frailty

    This is a video I created last fall. Still waiting for spring to arrive here. As late as it is, we still have no green leaves on our trees. Everything is late, so I thought I'd share this video. I would recommend it be watched with a bigger and higher resolution. Easy to do, simple choose...

    New planets!

    When I did the 31 day challenge, I did a photo of a soap bubble and it was very tricky to do. I ended up with a nice one, but still had to crop quite drastically as there were so many reflections I needed to cut out. So this weekend, I figured I'd try and get some bubbles without any weird...

    Leaves Part VII

    Here is another one from the shoot; I think I may be able to pull one or two more out in the next couple days -- no promises though. Here, they are standing up in somewhat of a pyramidal shape. A Trinity of Leaves - © Maggie Terlecki 2014

    Leaves Part III

    A darker feel for these leaves. A bit of Yin to balance out the Yang. [/image] Swordfish ©Maggie Terlecki 2014

    Although I'm not a fan of the huge carnations that people used to put in their lapels during weddings, I do like the simple 5 petal dianthus you see in so many gardens. They have a very spicy, cinnamony smell. Dianthus - ©Maggie Terlecki 2014

    Floral Conversation

    Named this way because this flower sort of spoke to me. The little squares behind are my curtains. I debated if I should take them out, but decided that I liked them. Floral Conversation ©Maggie Terlecki 2014
