Magical, Macro, Creative EveryDay



Macro of Mother's Day Orchids



Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.


MAGICAL MONDAY MEME 
'linky' below to join in


While attending an 80th birthday of a friend and former neighbor, I was feeling a bit low on energy due to a cold, yet when I began taking photographs of the people socializing and having fun, I found my inner spirit being lifted because I was feeling creative. It was the same all weekend as I took photos of the orchids (photo above) and photographing my art work recently hung in a space at local gallery that I felt my spirit soar.

So today I am sharing that creativity and viewing others expressing their creative selves at Macro Monday and Creative  Everyday. It is also our own blog hop day and hopefully will be viewing even more 'creatives' in action as you link up at the end of the post after Quote for the Day. A photo which I took at the party I attended is below in honor of a wonderful friend.

Hope you enjoy all the wonderful creative photographers, artists and crafters. Have a magical, healthy and loving week.


Hugs and namaste,

  5. Hi there - orchids and cut flowers are such a great subject for close up work. Even when I am really tired I find that taking pictures gives me a bit more energy.
