Dryer lint dancing in the light

When one of my children emptied the dryer lint I was so fascinated by the lint particles as I saw them floating through the air highlighted by the sunlight, quickly got my camera and tried to see if I could capture the lint dust in the air. It was a helpful process to really noticeContinue reading “Dryer lint dancing in the light”

Birds on a wire

Just a quick shot I took from the passenger seat on the way to a neurofeedback appointment as my husband was driving us down the highway. Watching the scenery and taking pictures while in the car can be a helpful way for me to cope. It can be challenging and I see that as partContinue reading “Birds on a wire”

. . . a l o n e . . . (one week later)

Today I just realized I took this picture exactly one week after the previous image—the same tree, different clouds, and leaves a different color, while riding in the car to the another neurofeedback appointment. I took this picture while riding in the car about 70 miles per hour down the highway (my husband was driving)Continue reading “. . . a l o n e . . . (one week later)”

. . . a l o n e . . .

I took this picture while riding in the car about 70 miles per hour down the highway (my husband was driving) on the way to a recent neurofeedback appointment. Sometimes I bring my camera and see what I can capture as a way to cope with my severe mental health struggles. This tree, all alone,Continue reading “. . . a l o n e . . .”

Kansas Turnpike bridge + dirty car windows

Just a quick shot I took as my husband was driving 75+ miles per hour down the Kansas Turnpike a few months ago. Taking photos while riding in the car is quite an interesting practice—you never know what you’ll get or how an image might turn out as you’re moving down the road. I findContinue reading “Kansas Turnpike bridge + dirty car windows”

Rainy day—from the passenger seat

A motion blur shot I took as my husband drove me to a neurofeedback appointment on a rainy day at the end of October. For the past 10 months (at the point when I took this photo–now it’s been about 15 months) I usually spend 6 hours in the car each week on the wayContinue reading “Rainy day—from the passenger seat”

Kids were here

My son’s bear and water next to my blanket I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on my Flickr account. If you’re interested in seeing more of those images you can check them out here.

Roadside weeds blowing in the breeze

A slow shutter image I took this past spring along the road next to our home. It was an interesting process to experiment with and see the results as I gave this a try. I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on my Flickr account. If you’re interested inContinue reading “Roadside weeds blowing in the breeze”

Keep growing

For a few weeks I watched these branches of the rose bush as they grew taller and taller, mentally cheering them on, and gaining encouragement from them to try to do the same myself and keep growing. I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on my Flickr account. IfContinue reading “Keep growing”
