Inspiring Macro

When I went to my friend, Trish’s house last weekend, I walked around the quiet grounds at Zeffer’s Farm Studio and found some interesting things in the landscaping.   I took some good macro and some other shots.   Am sharing for this Sunday.

get the drift?

get it yet?

surreal driftwood

I could NOT help but fall in love with this gorgeous piece of driftwood!   It’s otherworldly!   In front of it sits a huge piece of druzy quartz!    I did a macro of the druzy also.

And to illustrate that Trish’s artistic talents are not limited to the inside of the house…….

living art

Surrounded by such beauty, is it any wonder I was inspired and relaxed at the same time?    Zeffers Farm Studio is a great place to go on a retreat or take a class.   Trish is a wonderful teacher and inspiring artist.

  2. I love the drift wood close ups. I agree with Tamara, the blue color is beautiful. That druzy quartz is so cool.

  3. I could not decide which I liked best so I used all of them. I’m glad I’m not the only one who couldn’t decide which was best.
