100 Days of Summer Lensbaby Circle

Thought it would be easy to select a few of my favorite images that were part of the 100 Days of Summer celebrating my love and passion for all things Lensbaby.  Not as easy as I imagined, but here are a few that made my first favorite bunch.  If I had to guess, I would see updates to this post for sure!

Spirit TreeSpirit Tree Day 96

This is a tree in the parking lot of the church I attended while growing up near Pasadena, CA.  (San Gabriel, Church of Our Savior)  My parents, the Twining’s met one another at this church…ironically, my Aunt Carol (Dad’s sister) and my Godmother (Mother’s BFF) had been telling each of my parents they needed to meet a “friend” of theirs.  Nah, they met one another without that awkward blind date kinda thing.  Small world since Mother was born and raised in Lahaina, Maui and Dad predominantly on the East Coast.  Gonna have to go with “some things are just meant to be.”

My Mother was recently sharing their story and I never knew that my Dad fell asleep in the movie on their second date.  Mother said, “Well, I will never see him again…”  Nope, she was wrong on that account as he told her how he felt on date 3.”  He proposed at 6 weeks and they were married over 50 years.

Lady Bathing

Lady Bathing Day 100

I was fortunate to be able to attend my nephew Matt’s wedding to Hali.  Many advantages to having the newest DSLR lens, Velvet 56 on my Nikon, especially the 1.6 aperture.  I watched the candle melt during the reception and when I could clearly see a woman bathing–snap and a sentimental memory of a magical day and evening.

If anyone were to describe me as one who shoots flowers, I would have disagreed before the 100 images for Summer…yes, most were flowers and close to home.  Many were actually in parking lots of the various doctor locations I visit for treating my back and neck injury.  Once I switched to focusing on the “Lensbaby Love” and had lighter lens/optics on my camera it was easy to find subjects to share.
