My garden photography is featured in the Spring 2017 Gardening Issue of Your Home & Lifestyle Magazine, a publication for real estate professionals and their clients. The article (by Detroit design journalist Jeanine Matlow) talks about how I’ve “decorated” my garden beds with outdoor ornaments I’ve collected over the years. I’m thrilled to see my photo blog mentioned in this lovely article, too.
Few things are more rewarding than reaching a creative goal.
My photo blog, Something Beautiful Every Day, began last spring as a personal challenge to share something positive every day for one year. Looking for an escape from our nation’s brutal political climate, I decided to spend part of my day putting something lovely, or thought-provoking, out into the world. So I started carrying my camera everywhere — and not just for writing assignments.
I scouted for beauty in my neighbors’ gardens, the local farmer’s market, my kitchen drawers, my bookshelves, my husband’s art studio — and everywhere I traveled. Then I posted my images with a meaningful quotation every morning.
The project, which has been featured in several lifestyle magazines, will end on March 23. After a short break, I plan to start another photo blog, or I might put a new spin on Something Beautiful Every Day. Meanwhile, I’m back to those writing deadlines!
