Can you believe it? When I first arrived in North Carolina, I missed the old terrain in New England.
I guess I was just trying to find home. Mindy Gledhill has a lovely song about Finding Home.
Now, I go out everyday and find wonderful places to photograph.
vineyards have replaced the winding country roads I love so much back home. Nesting in North Carolina has become a wonderful adventure.
And then there are new places to explore, like Old Salem, a favorite place to photograph.
As I walked the charming cobblestone streets, admiring the quaint cottages and picturesque gardens, I knew these scenes would be perfect compositions to paint.
A wonderful use for my camera is memorizing subjects that I would like to paint. Or simply to store away for fabric design inspiration.
I enjoy going for walks in the early morning. Of course when I go for a walk, I don't bring my good camera along. It's much too heavy.
This walk is in Reynolda Village. It's the path to Reynolda House.
Lots of shady paths overlook this amazing home and gardens.
I use my iPhone to capture the beauty around me.
Like the Waterlogue App. It instantly converts your image into a watercolor painting.
FINDING HOME…home is in your heart, so no matter where you go you are home.
