Everyday Life: The Corvallis Edition

{Photography helps me see the world differently and enables me to be less sad about my dad’s death. Since I’ve been taking so many photos, I decided to begin a new series on the blog called  “Everyday Life.” The series showcase’s images from my everyday life. Enjoy!}

My word for 2012 is experiment; so today I’m experimenting with an audio blog and during August I’m going to participate in The August Break. For more on that, listen in here:

Projects mentioned in my talk include: Corbae CafeThe August BreakWriting in the Digital Age, and this tiny house.

Here are a few snapshots from my everyday life . . .

    Beautiful photos! My favorite is the light and the leaves with the blue fence. Just gorgeous! This inspires me to get my camera out and start shooting again. Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve been documenting our summer adventures on my blog, and have been playing around a lot with photography apps for the iPhone. I’ve found the phone handy for photos primarily because it fits in my pocket and I always have it with me, but I haven’t achieved your level of skill with it yet. You’ve got quite a talent, Tammy. I’ve loved all your summer photos!

      @Caroline – That’s awesome! I’ll be sure to check out your site. Thanks so much for the kind words. 🙂 I take a lot of photos with both my iPhone and Nikon. I love both! Thanks for reading.

    Hello Tammy: Thank you so much for including your pics on the blog here. The place where you live is really lovely. Your pics remind me of how much we are all the same. I often notice the beautiful rays dancing across leaves, but you managed to capture it and share. Also the tiny birds in their house really inspired me. How brave and strong they must be! Ok, then, thank you dear girl, for staying with us, you are the hope. 🙂 Big hug!
