A Sea of Blue


Monday, I think it was, I promised you some shots of clay pots.
Not exactly exciting stuff to hear about, but hopefully you'll find these as beautiful as I do!

There were aisles and aisles of glazed planters!
All colors of the rainbow, all sizes and shapes and textures.
Oh my!

Clay Pots


A few years ago, shortly after my son was born, I took a pottery class. It was mainly to get out of the house and have some "sanity time", but also as a creative outlet.
And when I look at these pots - especially the bird bath below - I am craving that 'get-your-hands-dirty' kind of creating! Now, mind you, there is NO possible way that I'd be able to jump in and make a gorgeous bird bath! In my class I managed to make a bowl, a votive candle holder that was supposed to be a bowl, and a plate...perhaps I should do a shoot with those???

Bird Bath


And of course, I can not resist cranking that lens out of focus!
This one may actually be my favorite.
I can see it now - blown up to a large scale and hanging in a crisp white cottage over the fireplace.
POW!

Sea of Blue

  3. Those are beautiful!! :) So I suppose I wouldn't look weird if I was lugging my camera around taking pictures of everything?! I am often tempted to do that, but resist.

  11. Katie, someone put me onto your photography several weeks ago. I saw this post and tried something similar today. Then came back and read about your equipment--was so encouraged that you're not using multi-thousand dollar lenses! Then went to your 365 from last year and...WOW!! That was an amazing trip. You have a truly special eye. You have also been working hard, but seriously. It makes me smile to think of what joy you must have in it.

  12. Hi, there! I'm just a few days late on this one... hehehe! But I did want to say that blue is (one of) my most favorite colors and this is awesome!! Wow! And you know what else, I'm lovin' the whole 'out-of-focus' thing you got going --- I sure could see it hanging up in some big fancy place! :)
