Art and Photo Prompts - Week of May 11th, 2014

I've been working on a bunch of time-intensive projects over the past year or so and not posting much to my blog.  Recently I searched for prompts to inspire me and found about 20 art and/or photo prompts that I plan on visiting and posting images to ---when I can.

There must be hundreds of memes out there and I cannot do them all, so I will pick and choose, based on what inspires me on a particular day.

Although I may create a new post for each, I may post one photo that will qualify for or fit the theme of several prompts or post a few images for several different prompts on a single post.  Even though I have a ton of photos and art work to choose from, I will create something new when I have the time.

I am a professional artist and an amateur photographer, so I try to combine both of my loves in many of my images.

Today's theme for NF Inspiring Photography is: CATCHING LIGHT

I 'm  also linking to Sweet Shot Tuesday Week 20.
P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday with Kent Weakley
Wednesday Around the World is for
women to show what is happening
where they live ---anyplace in the world.
Spring blossoms found along the path during a morning walk
at a community park in western Pennsylvania, USA.

I've been experimenting with blurring and textures in
my backgrounds in an attempt to add an artistic touch to my photos.

Oh that is nice, is it by Photoshop? I don't know how to use it, so i just make do with the camera, on whatever it can do on its own. By the way, thanks for dropping my post on Catching Light, unfortunately we don't have spring. We only have two seasons, the dry and the wet!

Beautiful picture - it shows in your photos that you are an artist.

It was an enjoyable and informative comment you left on my blog. It is a "Podophyllum peltatum". The flowers will be white and the fruit yellowish.

Thank you to everyone who left comments, Unfortuately I don't have accounts on some of your platforms and was unable to leave comments for you. Frankly, it has gotten to the point that I am already registered at so many places online that I am reluctant to add more.

However, everyone had absolutely beautiful photos which I enjoyed seeing. I can't wait until more things are blooming in this area.
