Photography as Art

Long before I ever got up the courage to try drawing and painting, I was seriously into photography. I still have a very nice digital SLR and put it to good use this week while watching a pair of bluebirds courting and the male working on building a nest in the bluebird house between the house and the hubster's workshop.

This is the picture I like the best so far:

I also find this one to be quite cute:

The Courting Couple

I am working on a handmade card for the sister I will be visiting for a few days next week. When I get it done, I will share it here.

That's all I have for now - I've mostly been busting my butt hauling things to Goodwill and the recycling center. The house is almost ours again. I just have a garage full of baby toys and accoutrements to sell at a garage sale soon.


  1. What a wealth of reference photos you must have for your drawings! The bluebirds are adorable. nancy

  2. Gorgeous!
    Such beautiful birds. Beautifully captured.
