I was determined to still have my artist date with myself but this week it would have to be at home. I took lots of pictures of the snow and ice and it was fun. I have not taken any classes in photography so I have a lot to learn. But I enjoyed being outside (on my back porch) and taking pictures. I realize I need to learn more about lighting and how to capture the sun in all its glory. There were so many pictures of the sun reflecting on the ice that I just couldn't get right. But I will keep trying and maybe take a class or two.
.The picture I do like is the one of the snow on the gate. For some reason, I am attracted to gates. I was thinking about why this morning. Is it because they protect us from the outside or lead the way to new adventures? I decided it must be both. I love to feel warm and safe at home but I also love to go places, meet new people, and learn new things.
If you took an artist date this week or are thinking about starting the practice, I would love to hear about what you are doing.
