benchmark

How delighted was I to snap this lovely bench in the snow last weekend on my early morning walk in the midst of a snowfall.  I have always loved black and white.  I think this deserves to be framed which inspires me to take more of my own photographs of things that strike my fancy.  It will be a sort of "benchmark test" as I admire so many other photographers.  Would you like to see more of my photographs or shall I just stick to what I do best and draw or paint it?  I am on the bench.

I love seeing your paintings but you're equally as good at photography so take more pictures please. Your bench picture and the way it catches the contrast is beautiful.

This photo is lovely! What makes it so appealing is the composition- love the contrasting, vertical lines of the fence behind the bench. It is a crisp, sharp shot.

You are an artist- whether it is with a brush or a camera, so I for one would love to see it all!
This photograph in contrasts is beautiful!

This is so pretty! I would love to see more of your photographs. To see what an artist sees through her lens is always fascinating. I wonder how many people walked by that same bench and never even paused to see the beauty.

You are doubly talented...so I say bring on the photography as well as the drawings!

Get off the bench and into the game. You're ready and the blog team needs your inspiration!

Please DO post more of your photography. It is lovely. And don't ever judge yourself by other photographers - or artists or writers for that matter. There will always be somebody better. But if we all gave up because we felt that we couldn't match Hemingway / Picasso / Avedon, etc, then none of us would create anything. Your work is your own and that's what makes it unique - and beautiful! Janelle
