Brandy Day278: Migraine Lousy

image

Rainy Sunday. Lousy migraine. No photos today. Slept more than most of the day.
This photo was taken out west atop some train tracks, looking down. I love the shot. I love the view. So peaceful. So soothing.
Enjoy the view & hope for a better tomorrow ❤

Brandy Day259: Open Roads, Open Mind

image

If someone tells you no, it doesn’t mean you stop. Sometimes finding your own way, your own path, is what makes your life come alive.
I shot this while driving through Virginia headed to North Carolina. A beautiful drive with a lot of peace & open roads.

Brandy Day237: Puppy Persistence

image

Oliver thought I should wake up at 6am today. I thought Oliver was crazy and with his persistence I was up and putting shoes on at 630. I was out the door, driving in the warm morning air. The sky started to lighten and the fog that had set in hours before, began to lift from its short slumber.  The country promised such soft contrast.
Thank you for your puppy persistence Oliver, sunrise was stunning.

Brandy Day155: What Lens Cap?!

image

Proof that I don’t use lens caps.
Turning my lens over to Canon was hard. Like leaving your child with strangers. Awaiting my new lens is like a 5 year old waiting for Christmas. I’ve been so anxious!! Hopefully within the next couple of days I’ll be feeling back to normal.
Home is where your camera and tripod are.

Brandy Day154: It’s Not Mine

image

I did not take this photo, however it was sent to me, taken for me.
I suppose I never realized how much my photography meant to me until I couldn’t shoot, nor how much my photos mean to others until things like this happen.
My friends & family send me photos they’ve taken either cause they know I’d be in love with the scene or because I’d be taking the same photo if I were standing right there beside them. I cannot express what it means to me to have made an impact on others lives with my photos and viewpoint.
Thank you for all the support and love from all those who surround me. It means the world to me.
We all view things differently, however if we were to take the time, we’d all see the beauty in life and that what surrounds us.

Brandy Day153: Straight. No Chaser

image

Shooting on borrowed time.
I couldn’t take it. I was feeling lousy. I needed a camera in my hands again.
Happy that the past two days had been rain filled so I felt I wasn’t missing out on too much. As the rain tapered off and the clouds broke, I noticed the orange glow in the sky. I wasn’t sure what I’d get when I headed out but it was worth the chance. As I drove I crossed over 69 and this is where I stopped. Where I shot until the sun set. It was beautiful. The sun melted into the horizon as the clouds ushered in another storm.  The onset of the looming storm didn’t matter and neither did the past couple of days, I got this shot and for that moment I was more than happy.
Shot from an overpass mid country facing I-69 south.
