Donna asked me to search for messages in photography this week. The options are endless. Does the message from your last fortune cookie resonate with you? Clouds? Does street art, neon signs, or storefronts grab your attention? What about the underlying messages from marketing logos, or the message you want to portray in your photography. Just have fun! This blog hits my photographic pursuit ideally.
People leave signs along the way. A message, I was here!
Signs of Peace and Love
February 14 and hearts abound
Walking about I see hearts in nature
Hearts were created to show the loving spirit
I collect stone hearts and they sit in my room in a candy dish. There are some things that you don’t really know about its history. You just know that it has been with you your entire life. It holds my love stones perfectly.

So ends my small contribution to messages I find all around me. I stayed with positive thoughts, and I finish with the many faces of my Moxie. Her face is so expressive.
In this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141: Geometry Patti invites me to share images that feature geometric shapes. I am having so much fun looking through my library of images, and trying to remember the correct geometry names.
I photograph hearts in nature! I see hearts everywhere. Do you?
Hearts decorate our lives.

Curves are interesting to follow.
Yosemite National Park and Mirror Lake provided me with this image.
I enjoyed looking through my archive to find some geometry terms. I hope that when you are out and about you look a little bit deeper and see some shapes also.
Getting out with friends for a day of photography is how I get positive energy. My group of photo friends continues to grow, and our weekly shoots are great. I use Adobe Lightroom CC to organize and edit my images. I am up to date, and I set up a collection of my best photos from each outing.
I recently purchased the Nikon 70-200mm f4 lens, and I am pleased with the results. When I select a lens I take into consideration the quality of the glass, and the weight of the lens. I don’t want it to be too heavy that I dread carrying it around. This is a solid lens and it can be used with both a full frame and crop sensor camera. I use it with the Nikon D7100, a crop sensor.
UC Davis Arboretum provided the backdrop for this post. This is a place I like to return to because it changes so frequently. Today I chose to take a closer look at nature.
Several walking bridges cross Putah Creek. Students have placed Love Lock messages along the way.
Hope you enjoy this closer look at nature. Getting out and looking at the world around me is good for positive karma. Take some time this weekend!
