Focus On You - 2 views

By Carol H.

Our monthly focus for September is “mornings” and of all the wonderful morning images in our group’s Flickr Stream, I would like to feature two that captured my attention this week:

This first image from Jackie Fields is a wonderful black & white. The tonal range is fabulous, well composed, and the light and shadow play really holds the viewer’s attention. This is where our mornings begin isn’t it? Getting out of bed to become part of a brand new day. I like to think the person who slept here woke up well rested with a smile on the face. Jackie Fields is brand new to Flickr with 2 images currently in her Flickr stream, this being one of them. Her other image is also awesome and I look forward to seeing more of her work. Check out her Flickr Stream here jackie’s vision and make her a contact!

This second image is from Cathy Sly. The soft light of morning so perfectly illuminates the fern and highlights the cobwebs, and that bokeh! I’m in love. Actually I’m a big fan of Cathy’s work. She is clearly a light chaser with a keen eye who takes her time to thoughtfully capture her vision. All of her images have a sense of serenity to them. She has been a Flickr member since June of 2011 with over 2,000 images posted there. View more of her work here slycat54. She also has a lovely blog, which showcases her writing talents as well as her photography. Check out My Corner Through My Lens.

Our "mornings" theme continues for through the month of September, so be sure to post your beautiful "mornings" photos in the Focusing On Life Flickr stream.

I have been loving all of the beautiful morning shots that have been posted and these two are favorites. One of the best things about morning is the light and these two capture it perfectly! Thanks Jackie and Cathy for sharing them.
