It is nice seeing you in my messages! I miss seeing new things from you. And even though yes, this has been in my favorites for a couple years, it's still nice to see. Hope you and your family have a great Christmas.
So nice to hear from you, Ms. Black! I haven't been active for a loooong time. Sorry about that. I've been busy with a new hobby since last year and photography has kinda fallen off the wagon. I haven't simply had any inspiration to take new photos to publish.
Everything is fantastic here. Hope all is well with you! I wish you the best and a lovely X-mas! HUGS!
I promise to be more active next year! My new hobby is not a hobby per se but a lifestyle. I've always been training at the gym but never actually got anywhere until last year when I found powerlifting which is old school barbell training with squats, deadlifts and bench press. I'm completely sold to it and train vigorously to become stronger. Unfortunately that has shifted my focus off photography completely which is why I haven't posted anything for a year. I just need to get my inspiration back and I can start creating and posting new material again
That's super cool! I admire your discipline. I'm supposed to start strength training after New Years for my shoulder to see if it helps. I hope I like it as much as you do! Photography fascinates me. I have no skills at it whatsoever. But I love seeing other people's work. Yours is very good. But if you don't have the passion for it anymore, that's okay.
I have a jewelry business. I make original pieces which sell very well sometimes, and not so well other times. LOL. It's all very cheap. I don't do high end stuff. Mostly stretchy bracelets with a variety of beads. Sometimes I get started and don't quit for hours. Sometimes I don't work on it much. Depends on how Mama says it's selling. I'd say it keeps me out of trouble, but that's not true. LOL. It does fill long hours though.
My passion is just hibernating is all, not gone Wish I had those long hours to spend but I guess apart from family time and training there's not much left. The only new photo I've created last year was our annual Xmas card and I didn't even upload it here this time, just in Facebook.
It's good to know your passion is just in hibernating mode. I did start strength/resistance training, right after Christmas. It did help, but I don't have a passion for it yet. And I understand the time thing completely.
What a beautiful photograph! First of all, the ornament is beautiful. Second of all, wonderful use of the focus. The blurred background really brings your attention to the ornament! And lastly of all, the lighting on this piece is very nice! The light glinting off the glitter, the ornament, and the background gives it a nice, soft light look! In all, this is a very lovely and simple wallpaper, with a wonderful use of photography techniques!
