I love the depth of field in this photo and how it focuses in on the flags and headstones. You can feel the honor and remembrance in this shot. It also seemed fitting for this week. Thank you for sharing and for linking up Dina!
Jaymi at Live, Love, Travel
This perspective is stunning! I love the lines of the staircase and the way that the black and white adds a sense of softness and a sense of drama. Thank you for linking up each week Jaymi!

I mentioned last week that I drove my brother to a wedding in Lake Chelan and had a brief opportunity to photograph the sun setting over the lake. For me, the feeling of this sunset was of a quiet drama with the dramatic colors and the stillness of the setting. I haven't been shooting much lately with the start of school and my 6th year of teaching. I have been reflecting on my photographic journey lately. I am a bit conflicted about the fact that I shoot so many sunsets. On the one hand sunsets are always an amazing experience for me. I feel at peace and connected to my faith and my self in a way that I don't often find in other moments. On the other hand I want to push myself and find other subjects to photograph to broaden my style. How do you push yourself, yet remain true to what you love to shoot?
Settings: ISO 100, 18mm, ss1/40, f/5.6
