    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

    Dianthus

    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

    Still Life : Lit by a window!

    Well, I put a new set of windows in my kitchen, so no there's light! I watch the light strike objects early in the morning as the sun comes up over the large hedge outside. Asher Kelman: Fruit in a Black Bowl Canon 6D Hope to see a myriad of images by your favorite window light! Asher

    My World: Tulips Encore - Still Life

    Until a week ago, it was still winter here, but finally a few tulips have poked through brave heads out of the ground and have given us hope of spring. Unfortunately, they are announcing a bit of snow for tonight, but I went out and brought one tulip in and took some images in the warmth and...
