I hate winter.
Here in NJ the air is chilly, the sky is gray, and everything looks blah. I needed to jazz up my mood a bit so I went to the local Produce Junction and found this beautiful flower.
Each petal is soft to the touch with a rich purple color. Its center is a burst of sunshine which is desperately needed today. Unfortunately I do not remember what it’s called.
Thanks for visiting and sharing my piece of sunshine today!

Todays assignment for Blogging 101 is to revise the tagline. Personally I like my tagline “A peek into my Soul”. I feel that it goes with my title and what I am about since I believe that each photo represents a piece of my soul that was saved since I found photography.
Take a look at the “Who I am” post from yesterday to see the direction that I ultimately want to take my blog to and let me know what suggestions you may have for changing the tagline or if you think it is GREAT as it is let me know that too.
All post must have a picture or two so here are some shots of two miniature Orchids that I treated myself to.
The third photo also shows “Depth” for this weeks WP Photo Challenge.
Thanks for visiting and let those suggestions FLY!
I have signed up for the Blogging 101 course and the first assignment is to introduce myself and explain why I blog.
I am a laid back easy-going woman in my late 40’s who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2000 and again in 2003. I am a survivor now for sightly over 11 years. Between diagnosis, treatments and life my mind was on over load with a lot of negative thoughts.
During this time I treated myself to a camera and began snapping away. I viewed each picture as a small piece of my soul that was saved. As long as I was taking pictures I wasn’t thinking those negative thoughts again. It was a time of peace.
In May of 2011 Reflections for MY Soul the blog was born. It was initially for uplifting quotes, positive thoughts and the occasional gentle vent session with a photo or 2 sprinkled in there somewhere. This went on for just under 3 years with roughly 20 post made during this time.
April 2014 I set my mind to truly get into this blogging thing. I have posted and additional 240 post with all of them centered on photography, since that is what saved my Soul.
The goal is for Reflections for My Soul blog to work hand in hand with Reflections for My Soul the book (a work in progress). Eventually I would like to open this blog or another so that others can share how they were able to save their soul when they were facing a medical crisis.
Thanks for visiting and of course comments are welcome!
While out yesterday taking pictures for this weeks Word Press Photo Challenge: Depth (of Field) I also took some pictures just because. Here are a couple of outtakes from the days shoot.
In the next set of photos I wanted the DOF effect on the swing to be more pronounced like the pictures posted yesterday. It does show slightly on the last couple of swings but not enough for what I envisioned.
