Serenity Project - December 2016 - Collaborative Project
Welcome to our collaborative blog circle where the topic is “Serenity.” We are all different, and so too is our work and style. The genres which the group share each month vary and may include landscapes, still life, portraits, macro, etc.... simple moments where we have individually found calm at some time during the month.
This month I've craved serenity more than at any other time this year! It's been a month which includes all the busyness of preparing for Christmas whilst at the same time preparing to move to our new home. As you can imagine, it's been good to step aside from all the preparations in-between times to re-charge and soak up a little peace and calm.... a must need to restore sanity in the midst of all the activity!
Next in the circle is the very talented Nadeen from Nadeen Flynn Photography. Please click here to view Nadeen's serenity moments this month and enjoy following the circle around.
Excited to share these vintage-style images I took of an old black and white photo of my mum and dad on their wedding day. I really want to create something special in their memory. Mum's favourite colours were pink and cerise which I incorporated into the story. Hoping to capture more images when I get a chance to go through more old photos and afterwards create a family heirloom photo book. I haven't edited the other images yet, but this is a little sneak preview.
The vase in the background is one I picked up at a charity shop recently for a bargain costing £1.50. I love to browse in charity shops for photography props and inspiration. It's amazing what you can find if you take time to look around.
