Room with a view

view from the front gate

We went to Italy last month, and it was one of the best

vacations we ever had!  I will start off with the first place we

stayed:  Positano.  We rented this lovely apartment

from www.vrbo.com called Villa Fior di Limone.  We

had the best view from our balcony.  I would make tea

every morning, and just sit out there and enjoy the

boats on the water, or the village below.  At night, we

could hear music from one of the restaurants.  One

night we even heard a party boat in the water.  They

were blasting dance music, and I am sure the whole

town heard it!  Positano is a vertical city, with many

levels.  One day my husband decided to count the steps

up to our apartment from the main street level (the beach is

a few levels down), and there were 443 steps!  I can walk

on flat ground forever, but I was never good with uphill, or steps,

so it was a little challenge for me.  But the view was so worth it!

If you go to the Amalfi coast, I recommend this place, or at least

this town!

RAWartists.org-Nashville, TN

available at etsy.com

Calling Nashville area residents!  As you may know, this blog is linked to my shop at etsy.com.

Someone from Rawartists.org contacted me through that site and asked if I wanted to be in a

showcase.  I never even heard of it.  They have one every month at the Mercy Lounge on Cannery Row.

Not only are there photographers, there are fashion and jewelry designers, musicians (it is Music City), etc.

My husband and I are both going to have work in this show on Thursday, June 21.  It will be really cool

seeing all the different forms of artistry in one place.  So I am asking you to please come support

local artists by coming to the show.  And if you are some sort of artist yourself, you can be in it too!  You

can apply to be in a show on their website.  They are always looking for talent.  If you are interested,

please purchase ($10) tickets through this link: http://www.rawartists.org/lisa08.  I need the credit,

and they are more at the door.  The last day to purchase is Monday, June 18.  The photo here is

my husband’s, and it will be in the show.   I really, really appreciate you support.  Hope to meet

someone there who actually read my blog, haha!  Thank you, Lisa Long.

Sunset over the bay

available at etsy.com

When we went to San Diego last fall, the weather was beautiful.  Since it was clear

in San Diego, we were excited to drive up the coast to La Jolla and take some sunset

pictures over the ocean.  That didn’t happen.  We learned a new term that day, “marina layer”.

While its sunny inland, the coast is all cloudy, and kind of depressing!  So we went back to

Jim on the observation deck

the city before the sun set, and got some nice pictures overlooking the bay.

It pays not to sleep in!

My husband is notorious for sleeping in, and taking naps at the drop of a hat.  I am the opposite.  Because I start my work day at 7:30am, I am used to getting up early, and couldn’t sleep in if I wanted to.  This benefitted me when we took a beach vacation to Edisto Beach, SC last September.  The sun didn’t rise until 7, so I was up at least an hour ahead to prepare for my sunrise photos.  The weather was perfect, and the water warm.  I got up four mornings in a row before the sun came up snapping away.   You can see more of these at etsy.com.

A Sepia Sunrise

available at etsy.com

We stayed in Edisto Beach, SC last fall where the weather was more than perfect.  I woke up early every morning and took some colorful sunrise photos.  But I love the tones of this barrier on the beach without color.  You can also see this at etsy.com

Fun with the tripod

Before our trip to the beach, I was looking at professional photographer websites in places like Seaside, FL or Myrtle Beach.  People pay good money to dress up and have professionals take their photos.  We have a tripod and remote release, so I decided we could get those same type of photos ourselves, for free!  We really didn’t have “nice” pictures of the two of us on vacation.  We are in casual clothes since we walk for several hours a day, carrying a bag or camera.  So we dressed up, set up the tripod, and had some fun.  Luckily, no one was around that day to ruin our shots.

A day at the Beach

Jim and I wanted to rent a beach house somewhere where it wasn’t crowded or commercialized.  Going after Labor Day helped, and I had heard about Edisto Beach, SC from a friend.  We got so lucky.  The weather was perfection, not a cloud for 4 days!  I am an early riser, and I got up before dawn every morning with my camera taking photos of the sunrise since we faced east.  After that, I just sat on the deck drinking tea, reading a magazine, and listening to the waves.  The only vacation where we weren’t pounding the pavement trying to get photos of everything!  Please see this and other sunrise photos at Etsy.com
