Serenity Project - July 2017

We spent the 4th of July in Puerto Penasco, Mexico known to the gringos as Rocky Point.  I have been coming down to Rocky Point since I was a child.  It is my happy place.  I took this photo while we were floating in the ocean looking onto shore during sunset, one of my favorite versions of serenity.

Serenity Project - May 2017

"Let us accept the invitation, ever-open, from the Stillness, taste its exquisite sweetness, and heed its silent instruction."      -Paul Brunton

I was very happy to be asked to join the Serenity Project last month.  The Serenity Project is a collaborative blog circle that focuses on photos of serenity.  I haven't felt like myself lately and this rut I've fallen into just seems to get deeper and deeper.  Taking photos in my backyard have always brought me peace.  My happy place.  Lately even that can't pull me out of the funk I'm in but I'm still here.  Embracing imperfection. Looking for serenity.

"Maybe it's cold
And maybe you're tired
And maybe the road is long
But maybe conditions like these are required
To birth your most beautiful song"

Free 52 - January 2017

Some of my favorite images are freelensed.  They are dreamy and magical.  Unfortunately I have been in a bit of a rut these last couple months and haven't felt like creating much of anything let alone taking photos.     In the past freelensing has pulled me out of my ruts so this year I am committing to freelensing once a week and posting it monthly with an incredible group of talented photographers.  

Here's some of my freelensed work from January.
