Ignite. A Creative Discovery. August


Inspired by Nichole Van and her group {Elevate},  several photographers and I have decided to take some time each month to explore the fine art side of photography.  Each month, we will post a photo or series of images focused on art and photography. There are no rules. Just post what comes from the heart and ignite those creative juices, allowing the inner artist a chance to explore and fly.


It’s sunflower season here in the mid-Atlantic.  I hope to make a trip soon out to the vast fields of those beautiful smiling sunflowers and capture some of their beauty.  For now, this is one from my archives.  It’s one of my favorites, I have it a large print of it hanging in my bathroom, reminding me to begin each day with some sunshine.




Now head over to my very talented friend, Jan Madert, Jan Madert Photography, Atlanta, GA
