Creative Distraction

Wow, where did the week go? Things have been pretty busy around these parts, as I slowly take on more commitments. I realized yesterday that I'm an assignment behind on my experimental art course. Well, let me rephrase that. I have two new assignments to delve into! Fun :) Ooh, and I'm starting to get photos and requests for the two Creative Challenges I have on the go! Wanna play? Click here.

The one thing that I have been staying on top of is my photography. My homestead has proved useful this week, for my daily Project 365 photos and MCP's Project 52 shot.

The trees outside my apartment (the same ones I dreaded their leaf losing in the fall) have been fun subjects. A sparkly sun shower and moody sunset caught my eye and were caught in my lens.

Some natural light and a blank wall made for a fun silhouette adventure...

Now, for my two faves of the week. I was driven to distraction by some cheap tulips picked up at the grocery store (Is it spring yet?!).

Some bright tints in this macro wonder.

And the soft tones of this sepia sweetness...

Gorgeous tulip shot. The sepia really allows the focus to be on the shape & composition instead.

Thanks y'all for the wonderful comments. I'm guessing we liked the tulip shots? :) Perhaps one of them will make it into my BFA application portfolio...

Beautiful photos. I found you through the artist blog hop and i'm so glad I did. Art really does have healing properties, doesn't it?!

I'd be honored if you have the time and interest to give a little project of mine some consideration:
