Photo of the Day 7.9.20 Peonies and Possibilities

Peony in Black and White

My peonies have long since ended their bloom cycle but I loved how this photograph turned out in black and white and had to share.  I also used this photo as the feature photograph on my new blog page entitled “Store”  that I just published today.  I hope you saw it! 🙂  There’s a link to the Store page on my homepage navigation bar for information on my marketplace website.

That’s the “Possibilities” piece of today’s blog title.  I launched my new project after months of work editing photographs and organizing those I deemed marketable into digital folders earmarked for the online marketplace website I created.  I’ve been dreaming of creating a way to share my photographs and generate an additional income stream for several years.  It’s been a journey and a challenge but I’m happy with the results.

I’ve never been particularly good at marketing my talents and remain very humble when it comes to my photographic efforts.  I’m encouraged however by all the positive comments people have made to me over the years regarding my photography.  It has given me the courage to move forward and take this to a new level.  One of my favorite quotes sums it up:

“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.”  – Langston Hughes

And now for some photos I actually took today!
