Time is a fraction, and mine is running out….This month has been a month of adjustments. I started a new job which means my working hours changed, my travel time changed and I face a whole new learning curve. It also means my photography time has been affected as well. Added to that I will be having surgery on my foot on the 18th of this month and so I decided to work ahead and take my photographs early so that everything was done and prepared for the upcoming blog.
Working in advance means that when 30 Minutes decided to make this month a Five on Festive, I was not on the same page. Truth be told, I am not even doing Christmas decorations this year. While it would be easy enough to put it all up, taking it down will be another story. Climbing in the attic on crutches will be impossible for me. So I decided to get a Poinsettia and call it Christmas. Presents can go around that this year. So my blog will not be the same as the rest but I hope you enjoy it anyway.
A few months back I bought a macro lens, 85mm. The person I bought it from told me she never used it for macro but mainly for portraits. I have used it for macro but never for portraits. So when Amy came home for Thanksgiving I asked her to be my model while I tried out the macro lens.
“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively, unless you can choose challenge instead of competence.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt, The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt
This 30 Minutes marks the joining of a number of new bloggers and it will be exciting to see what they have for us in the future. Don’t forget to follow the circle and take a look at what the other photographers have for you this month. Stacey Markel Photography / Maryland Family and Child Photographer is up next. I always love what Stacey has to offer and I am hoping to live Christmas vicariously through my fellow bloggers.
As this year draws to a close I have to thank all the ladies I have been blogging with this past year. It has been a blast and I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this group. There is amazing talent in here and each one has helped me grow in some way.
May your coming year be full of love, peace, happiness and joy. May you dream big and may your dreams be a journey that you constantly strive towards.

Love the pictures, all of them!
