Wish you were Here Project

A group of photographers from around the world are participating in a weekly year long project called Wish You Were Here. We shoot a photo each week that captures a moment of our week then share them on the Wish You Were Here blog.

I met these ladies through Deb Schwedhelm‘s wonderful photography workshop, Continuing the Journey. It is a continuation of her workshop Breaking the Mold. She is offering the Breaking the Mold Workshop again this spring. Details are here, if you’re interested in taking the workshop this spring. It was the workshop that turned my photography around. Started me shooting what I love. Helped me think outside the box.

Anyway, I’ve met some fabulous photographers from her workshops. There is such a flow and a contrast to seeing all the photos, one after the next on the blog. Summer, winter, family, landscapes-a mix of whatever captures the photographer that week.

Here are my first 4 weeks’ photos for January:

The morning after. Let’s just say we had a really fun weekend with all the boys coming into town to surprise my husband for his birthday.

Just Before Dawn

Another image in The Awakening Series. I did this image early one morning on our trip to The Outer Banks. The stars were still barely shining and dawn was breaking. I used a slow shutter speed and walked into the image and back out, to create the “ghost” image.

Sometimes, just before dawn, she believes she can fly.




For more information and an explanation of The Awakening Series go here to my first in the series She Longs To Dance in the Rain.

Second in The Awakening Fine Art Photography series, She Floats a River of Red Satin.

Another photo from  The Awakening Series. More information about The Awakening Fine Art Photography Series is here. I must have re-edited this photo a dozen times. Adding to it, changing, adding more, taking more away. I don’t promise I won’t edit this one yet again…
