5 on 5: september

I have missed the last few months of our 5 on 5 blogroll.  I was in a bit of a funk due to some scanning issues I was having.  Thankfully, my sweet husband bought me a new scanner for my birthday.  It not only got me scanning some very old rolls, but it got me…

5 on 5: July

I have been in a major photography funk.  I missed last month’s 5 on 5 and am barely making it this month.  The only reason I have picked up my camera is a weekly blog I do with my friend, Meg. To be honest, I have been so deep into the funk, I haven’t even…

5 on 5: May

Life has been full.  It has been full of good things, but it the business of it all can still be overwhelming at times. We have had so many BIG life moments in my home, it has had my head spinning a bit.  I haven’t picked up my camera much lately, but I do have…

5 on 5: March

I am totally breaking my own rules for this month’s 5 on 5.  I usually post my favorites from the previous month, but these photos were taken in April.  On April 2nd, my daughter became engaged.  It was a big day for all of us.  We love her beau so much and are so excited to…

5 on 5: February

I have just returned from an epic trip to Iceland.  Real life has me running and I haven’t been able to scan my film or get the images off my camera yet.  I do, however, have some iPhone images from the trip that hold some of my favorite memories from the trip.   For more…

5 on 5: january

I can’t believe we have sailed through January so quickly. I hope this isn’t a sign for how quickly 2017 plans on going. One thing I noticed about my favorite five images this month is that they are all film images. I hope that means there will be more film in 2017. When I have…

5 on 5: december

And just like that, 2016 is gone.  For me, it was a long and difficult year that was plagued with sickness and injury and loss. I spent much of December grieving the year so that I could enter the new year in freedom and hope.  While I loved these five images in color, I felt…

5 on 5: Novemeber

I was only home for 14 days in November.   I am finally home for the rest of December and I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed.  While I missed my home terribly, I had some wonderful adventures. This month’s 5 on 5 is going to be a little different.  I had three…

5 on 5: October

October was very full.  I am getting much better at taking my camera out when I don’t know if I will really use it.  I am enjoying capturing the everyday moments and the really fun and special moments with my people. I took my camera with me on a road trip through San Fransico with…

5 on 5: September

September was so full and busy that I am not sure I properly remember it.  I was fortunate to have some time set aside to be quiet and still, just me and my camera.  Here are five of my favorites from the peaceful moments of the month. Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly…

5 on 5: August

August was a very full month.  I am still getting used to my new camera and lens.  The lens is more difficult to get used to than I thought, but who can complain about having to learn how to better use their dream lens?  Not me.  Well, that isn’t wholly true.   Here are my favorites…

5 on 5: July

I have had some film hiccups lately. I was bemoaning about it over on Viewfinders  yesterday. This is why I love this project of looking back at my month.  Even when I have had a rough month with film or photography, I have the opportunity to look back and find the good.   I am also…
