pink smudge

i've been missing 365 and wondering how to catch up or get back into it or stay with it. so i've decided to post every so often and enjoy catching up with your projects as much as i can. everything feels a bit in flux at the moment - not sure why - it'll probably pass - and hopefully good things will come out of it. i really hope you're all keeping well. at least in the uk it does feel as though there is light at the end of the tunnel at long, long last - though not just yet :) this is a lensbaby omni filter sunset from my bedroom window - the omni wand is useful for removing the unsightly street furniture and cars ...
GORGEOUS! I get in those down moods a lot. Just have to roll with it. I hope you will feel better soon and surely your suffering will produce good fruit! :)

This is so clever Clare, you sure have been putting the omni to good use. Wonderful to see you and your fabulous images again.

That is beautiful. I like how the sharp tree details get dissolved into the fuzzy atmosphere of the water-like surface.

there is no catching up needing doing on your photography Clare - that is clearly going great guns. Gorgeous colours composition and everything here - love that little cloud. Hope to see you here as and when, I am considering my own journey here - I can't seem to keep on top of it but I dont want to give up either.

@juliedduncan @kjarn thanks so much julie and kathy - not down really, just pondering where my focus is going to be :)
@helenhall thanks helen for your kind words - indeed we have to all consider our journeys here and i feel the same as you - don't want to leave but also kind of don't want to be half-hearted about it ;) hopefully we'll both stick around in some form or another :)

@pistache - claire, a favour, please. my moonlight sonata photo already won a challenge. can i withdraw from your finalists and you can choose another one from your roster to give others a chance? maybe someone who has less followers? thanks, kid.

Your photos are such an inspiration. This one is amazing--the colors, the silhouette of the tree, the reflections. Fav.

The crazy times we are in have certainly impacted all of our creative feelings. I think 365 is a place that you can enjoy anyway you want to. There aren’t any hard fast rules, that’s the beauty of it. I will always love to see your photos any time you put them on. Honestly more often than not your posts are true works of art. This is a lovely image, very peaceful and calming, to me.

Congratulations on TT!

absolutely gorgeous
I'm excited to see where your art journey takes you. You are so very talented.

I too am having trouble with having time for my other interests - because shooting, editing and commenting take a LOT of time. I absolutely love doing it, it has given me so much and don't want to leave. But I may decide to post less often in order to free up some time for other art related hobbies that are newish. I've already found that I fall behind in commenting. I hope you can pop in once in a while.

Clare, I want you to know that I so so much appreciate your past kind comments, suggestions, educational tips and favoring posts on my project. Meanwhile, I will follow what your are up to on Instagram.

@vesna0210 @framelight_byasli thanks so much! what a pleasure to find this when i popped in just now :)

@louannwarren i quite agree lou ann and love the fact that 365 is so flexible and such a delightful place to be! thank you so much for your lovely comments :)

I have never used a lens baby but the more shots like this I see, the more tempted I get!! Congratulations.

I love how you used the light stretcher omni wand. I saw Caroline Trans tutorials recently and I am thinking that maybe I get it now.

I completely understand the 'in flux and not knowing why'. I am of the opinion that there is no normal anymore. I seem to be able to post easily enough but keeping up with commenting is proving to be a black hole for me at times. I am trying to be forgiving of myself now, pandemic stress/anxiety is an ugly monster. Stay true to yourself and just be.

Hang in there, Clare! 👍❤️
