ranunculus love.

yellow ranunculus

My mom bought these for me while we were at Trader Joe's yesterday.
They are sweet and sunny just like she is.

Okay, first of all those are some beautiful flowers and a wonderful image!

Second of all, I read your last post through google reader, which I suppose you deleted because it wouldn't take me to the original post. I just want to say you're not the only person who feels that way from time to time! Each time I make a blog post, I also link to it in my personal facebook account. I have over 300 "friends" and family and I'm lucky to get one or two "likes" from them. I sometimes wonder, do I post so often that people are sick of me? Are they laughing at me for attempting to start my own business when all I ever post are photos of my son and my dog? Then I come back to the realization that I don't care about the people waiting to see me fail (if they really are) as much as I care about doing something I love, now that I've finally found it. I didn't always have aspirations or goals for myself. In fact, quite the opposite. Pretty self destructive to say the least. But now, with my just barely entry level dslr (Canon Rebel XS) I've found a new way to see the world... even if I fail miserably at the business aspect, at least I'll save myself hundreds and hundreds of dollars on getting plenty of memorable shots of my son. And my dog.:D

You photograph things. You are a photographer in my eyes. I see every one of your posts, and I've thoroughly enjoyed them all. I'm terrible about not commenting on blogs I follow and I think for me it comes down to feeling like I sound like a broken record. Everything is either beautiful, gorgeous, adorable, or ....well see I've already ran out of descriptive words. :)

oooooh, i <3 ranunculus!! I'm going to TJ's tomorrow and getting some.

And I read your last post in my google reader, too, and have to say that you expressed everything that I've felt with my blog. Honestly. I have a love/hate relationship with it and have thought about not blogging for a while now.

I absolutely love your blog. I love its clean and simple design and have often thought to myself "man, she's DEEP! i wish my posts were well-written and insightful like hers are instead of being so random and dumb." i read all your posts and LOVE looking at your images. I completely relate to feeling inadequate in photography. I think EVERYONE does. Even the pros. I'm a firm believer that it's not the equipment, but the person behind the camera that makes the images. YOU decide how to compose your image, WHEN to click the shutter and HOW to process it. I love your stuff in the Picture Inspiration gallery (that's how I found your blog), and you will only keep getting better as you keep doing it. Check out this post here: (specifically #14). I know I totally fall into that trap and it sounds like maybe you do, too.

All I know is that I am constantly cleaning out my google reader because I tend to add blogs too often and then don't end up reading them. I added yours a while ago and it's still there because I really enjoy you. I totally relate to so many things about you. And yes, my Max is a Maxwell, too!! So please keep blogging, ok??
