I love the long June evenings, sitting in the sun on the deck, delectable sweet cherries. And, of course, these two beautiful images!

I'm finding inspiration in wildflowers, sunshine, evening walks, summer's colors, and kayaking on the lake :) Beautiful images!

Gorgeous !

I'm inspired by this photograph of yours...the flowers in the old flour sifter (and loving the use of flower/flour!). I'm staging my mother-in-law's house as it goes on the sale market and looking for ways to brighten up an old house. I'm painting and old wooden table for the kitchen and was trying to come up with a centerpiece...and as soon as I saw your photograph -- I was inspired! Thank you!

Lovely textures! You tease with those peonies. Oh how I wish I had some. My blueberry bushes are small but one day I hope to get a bowlful like that!

Barbara said...

Ah, you've convinced me I just need to open my eyes. Your photo is gorgeous - not many flowers left around here, but maybe that means I need to look around inside (in the a/c!) Or maybe, even better, hit a flea market...

I love that blueberries photo! I'm inspired by the fresh food at the farmer's market and the warm glowing light lasting late into the day.

Beautiful!!!

Oh sweet Mo....what stunning pictures...at the moment the things that are doing it for me are (in no particular order)...bokeh flowers, b&w portraits, film, foreground blur...

Oliag said...

These are both so wonderful that I have no words! I have been inspired recently not only here but at Picture Color and Picture Inspiration...the prompts get me out there taking photos every day.

Kat Sloma said...

Mo, love these images. And thanks for reminding me of BLUEBERRIES. It will be blueberry season still in Oregon when I move home. YUM!!

Kirstin said...

And grasses....I forgot the grasses...

SuperDewa said...

Both of them are beautiful. The blueberries are making me hungry. I am so bummed -- I didn't manage to pick any of my peonies before the torrential rains came and destroyed them.

I'm inspired by my grandson, who everyday makes me smile and gives me great opportunities to photograph. Oh and he always inspires me to laugh a lot more than I use to.

Ania said...

Your post came at the perfect time... I felt so uninspired lately. But you are right, there is so many little, everyday things around me that should be an inspiration, I just have to open my eyes and look at them differently :)

Those peonies are so luscious!

Thank you Maureen for featuring my blueberry photo, I'm thrilled!

The blueberry still life is wonderful - the light, the tones, the textures...and the composition. Simply perfect!
