Celebrating World Photo Day

It’s time for all photographers to rejoice: were are fast approaching World Photo Day on Monday, August 19, 2019!

As for me, it all started about two years ago as I began to think more seriously about taking better quality pics for my online site, Jaimee’s Plush Toy Greeting Cards (www.greetingcardjoy.com).

I soon found a distinct joy in going to local parks, beaches, and natural-scenery type areas and getting shots as nature simply played its course. Over the past 18 months, I’ve acquired lovely hilltop, mountain, bird, and ocean photos in everyplace I’ve visited, ranging from my home state of North Carolina, to Kentucky, to Washington, DC.

On a recent greeting card I gave to my 91-year-old grandmother, Ethel Canty, I carefully placed photos I had taken of her (she’s in the blue dress) and some fellow church members on Easter Sunday 2019. It was the perfect idea to share some recent photos with her, and to give her one of my handmade plush toy centerpieces all in one gift!

This is the handmade, plush toy greeting card below!

Greeting Cards & Nature’s Naturals

The beauty of nature is awesome.

About a year ago, I decided to buy a camera for my Etsy shop. My sales have remained about the same, but I was surprised to find out how much I enjoy taking pictures! After months of searching, I went with Nikon, and a few do-it-yourself videos online later, I’ve learned how to use it.

The picture above is from Ft. Fisher, an historic area here in Wilmington, NC. The brilliance of the sun captures the glassiness of the water, and the sea grass stands proudly before the rocks.

The foam of the sea tells its own story of power, splendor, and simple elegance.
