Happy Friday – A Game, Repetitive

Happy Friday everyone! What I'm learning as a business owner is that you are simply not in control... I have to depend on other people and sometimes :roll: their schedule is not the same as mine.  I had hoped to be having the grand opening of Shelly Fry Photography in Battle Ground today to coincide with First Friday but my space is still unfinished. However, I have been told that move in day WILL HAPPEN on Monday (I will believe it when its happening) - I'm anxious to share this journey with you!  ;-) Also if you have tried to [...]


Around the Corner/My Weekend/A Selfie

Around the Corner 198/365 All last week our planned weekend visit to see Tyler was just {around the corner}... It was a long week... Then we finally hopped into the car and after many miles and many corners we were finally with our boy! There are many things lurking just {around the corner} next weekend when we actually get to be with both our sons at the same time... Saying goodbye to both of them at college... The opening of SFP is just {around the corner}! I'm anxious to drive by tomorrow.  They were supposed to have poured some concrete [...]


Any Favorite Snack/Loyal/Yikes

Any Favorite Snack 191/365 I am seasonal with my snacking... Sometimes something salty is my {favorite snack}... Most times something sweet is my {favorite snack}... But in the summer time I love to snack on whatever fruit or veggie is in season... I am the type that doesn't even look at a cantaloupe except for the few delicious weeks they are in season...Which is sad because I LOVE THEM! I also adore cherries! And we live in cherry country and when they are ripe I will gorge myself with them...besides the seeds are SO FUN to spit!!! Loyal 192/365 Being a [...]


The Sky/Hello/Me

The Sky  177/365 There have been some spectacular sunsets lately... Sadly, I have found myself without my camera or not in a position to capture one of these amazing light shows in {the sky}... On Friday evening I grabbed my wide angle 11-16 F2.8 lens for my {sky} shot... A huge part of photography is learning what lens will best suit what you are trying to capture... What I have learned is this is the lens to go to for any sky shots! I love how it captures the colors and broadness of the sky! I headed down my street to see what [...]


Favorite Time of Day/Nature

Favorite Time of Day 175/365 There have been times in my life where I have had to get up really early... I'm not gonna say the waking up/getting up process is enjoyable... But once I'm up, I'm up and usually happy about it... Early morning is {my favorite time of day} - unless I've been taking NyQuil (which I have the past few nights thanks to a wicked head cold!) then it's a struggle through the fog... It is quiet and peaceful early in the morning... The day is full of potential...I tend to wake up optimistic... As a photographer there is no question that [...]


Sprinkle/In My Cup/Today

Sprinkle 170/365 {Sprinkle} of freckles... {Sprinkle) of sugar... {Sprinkle) of rain... {Sprinkle} of chocolate shavings on my cupcake... In My Cup 171/365 I have to admit that while I did shoot with my big girl camera each day this weekend all of my "official" pictures I posted for my 365 Project were taken with my iphone... Sometimes I just didn't have my camera with me when I had the opportunity to shoot whatever the prompt was for that day... On Sabbath I had the opportunity to shoot a lovely evening wedding... But prior to that we had a last minute [...]


Explore/What Represents Me

Explore 168/365 - Mitchell Point, Columbia River Gorge Oh how I love to {explore}... It is absolutely my favorite thing to do! {Explore}ing to me could mean turning down a street in my own neighborhood that I have never been on... Or taking off passport in hand... Somewhere on Mt. Hood, Oregon For me, there is nothing better than wandering, {explore}ing something, somewhere new... Wildlife Reservation - Ridgefield, Washington Of course my favorite way to {explore} is to travel somewhere new and then just wander... I love turning down streets, wandering through buildings, with no agenda other than to see [...]


Special/A Habit

Special  166/365 Forgive me this post will be a bit personal... The picture for {special} was taken during the last few minutes I would be with both my boys for a long time... They have gone off and left me for the summer and they have gone in opposite directions... I'm sad because most likely we will not be together again here at home until Thanksgiving... They boys won't be together until September...  Jeff and I plan on visiting each of them as much as possible this summer but life has definitely changed for me... And I can't say I'm happy about it... [...]


Summer/A Pop of Color/Where I Stand

Summer 163/365 Oh my goodness it has been a crazy busy weekend... Which is a good thing! {Summer} is here the weather continues to be perfect which means I get to take more photo sessions!   Friday I made a day trip to WW to photograph this lovely family... They had one son who would be graduating from University that Sunday and the other son will be deployed to Afghanistan in a few short weeks and this was their opportunity to be all together as a family and have their pictures taken... So I grabbed my mom and hopped in the [...]


Abstract/Lunch/A Basket/Season/What I’m Looking At

Abstract 149/365 So it's time to play catch-up on my blog! These last few days have been a blast! I am so thankful I had the opportunity to go along with my sons senior trip to Lake Shasta.  The above picture is labeled {abstract} After driving all night long, arriving at the lake at 7am and then being out on the lake by 10am my brain could not process anything...I simply took a picture of the seniors on their "party boat" with the beautiful {abstract} designs in the water. Lunch 150/365 {Lunch} time on the party barge.  This was one [...]
