I’m really enjoying the Two Takes class led by Tracey Clark and Bindu Wiles. It’s all about seeing things in two ways. The first prompt was above and below and I chose to shoot the same thing from two vantage points. The second prompt is new and old and I wanted to combine them in one shot.
These online photography classes such as the Big Picture Series with Tracey Clark and now Two Takes with Tracey and Bindu have been the guiding force in my photography journey. The photo prompts give me direction and an assignment of what I am looking for through my lens. I live life at a bit of a slower pace these days really taking the time to notice what is around me. The biggest bonus from these classes, which is something I didn’t even think about, is the friendships I have made with other photographers around the world. I have learned so much from these ladies and truly feel a kinship with them. I know that if we all lived nearby that we would be very good friends.

One of those friends I have made along the way is Becky Sue. We have kids similar in age and a lot of the same interests (hello shoes!) Her mom has been recently diagnosed with Alzheimers which has obviously been very overwhelming. Becky Sue, besides being a talented photographer, is also a jewelry maker. She is selling these bracelets and donating all of the profit to the Alzheimer’s Association. I just ordered mine so please visit her Flickr page and order yours today!
