A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography


Week 1 – #23. If Flowers Could Talk

Welcome to another year of blogging! I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoy photographing items which I think represent each of the 2017 – 2018 themes.  During Week 1 on August 1st, I am in Tennessee and as I walked the road where I live, I saw a planter with beautiful pink flowers and I asked myself, “If flowers could talk,” what would these say?  I stood there for several minutes admiring the flowers and started thinking about my buddies who I hold dear, who I enjoy spending time with, and who I can share good times and bad times with.  Then it became obvious to me that these beautiful flowers were a lot like me and would say, “I enjoy hanging out with my buds.”

Week 41 – 17. Macro/Close-Up

_MNH7271When I saw this tiny flower, I pulled out my “macro/close-up” Tokina 100mm, 2.8 lens and focused with the hope of getting the stamens in focus.  After trying several times, I managed to capture this photo.  I have no idea what the name is of the flower so if anyone knows, please let me know.



Week 22 – #47. The Color Pink

I love the element of surprise.  As my friend, Mindy, and I were walking through Central Park during  a snowfall, we spotted two beautiful young ladies taking photos.  Their brightly colored pink umbrella provided a wonderful pop of color so we stopped and asked permission to photograph them.  This photo was taken in color; however, I elected to desaturate it and use selective coloring to draw 100% attention to the vivid colors.
