Snapshot


Sometimes you take a photo and you just love it, not for any particular reason, the lighting can be wrong, it may not be as sharp as you had hoped, and no one else may even share your enthusiasm for it, but that's ok.




When professional photographers shoot a house for a magazine or a book, they have to make sure of all of those things, like lighting, and composition, and it truly is an art to create photos like the ones we oooh and ahhh over each month.




These were all taken at my friend Sheryl's house, you may remember her as the person who made my wonderful living room chair slipcover, and I just love these shots.  They were taken before I got my new camera, and although the lighting isn't just right, I still like the way they turned out, and isn't that what it's supposed to be about anyway?

My one story is done, woohoo, but now it's time to buckle down and clean this much neglected house of mine!  At this point, I'm pretty sure the dust bunnies will scare away the Easter Bunny!!!  I hope you are having a productive day too!

  1. The pictures ARE very nice, Kat. Sometimes good things happen when we aren't really looking.

    I'm off to shop for Easter dinner. I hope I am beating the crowds!

  2. I can't say I have been productive today. I will be later this afternoon though. One of the pup, Handsome needs a trip to the vet's office.... it's always something when you own a rottweiler. :-)

  3. You are so right about it being a lot of work to get photos just right for publication. I feel like I'm in WAY over my head most of the time.

    You always make it look so easy. :-)

    Just gorgeous!

  5. You had me laughing out loud about the dust bunnies, must have hit me just right! The photo with the nest atop the oval ironstone platters made me sigh! All of them are really beautiful Kat. xo ~Lili

  6. I love the pretty tea cup set! I wonder what pattern that is! I am having a very productive day! Hubby is helping me with some little tasks...like putting some hooks in my closet! I love getting things in better order! ♥

  7. When dust bunnies and Easter bunnies merge, you get gremlins~

  11. I really like your photos! I will be glas when our home renovation is over, and I can get back to taking some myself. I did take a minute outside today to capture a few flowers. Might as well, since I am totally missing spring working on the house every day. Thanks for the inspiring shots. Happy Easter! carrell

  12. That would apply to most of mine. If I like them that is all that really matters since this is a hobby for me. I love the green table. Always enjoy visiting your blog.
