10 on 10 – January // Doors of Balboa Park

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // doors of Balboa Park, Spanish Village, International Cottages, Junior TheaterMy dear friend and amazing photographer, Kim Bajorek, invited me to join her with a few other photographers in a 10 on 10 monthly blog posting circle, showcasing 10 (or more!) photos taken on the 10th of the month, and linking to the next photographer in the circle. This month, I’m linking to the fabulous Micah Hewett Images – definitely check it out!

Seeing that the 10th of January landed on a Friday, I had a chance to sneak away as both my girls were in school! I chose to head to Balboa Park and photograph the beautiful and different doors of the park. Spanish Village for the colorful doors, International Cottages for some more color and iron, Junior Theater for wood and iron and Sculpture Court Cafe for beautiful iron. I really love being at the park – there is always something to see, something to photograph, something I hadn’t noticed before.

And I’m totally serious that I always discover something new…

I had no idea there were so many caterpillars on some of the different trees around the park! I really wished I had a macro lens to get closer and better details as I grabbed these shots. Without a doubt, I was fascinated with these ravenous leaf-eaters and colorful creatures!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Don’t forget to check out the next photographer in the 10 on 10 circle – Micah Hewett Images  – lovely images and I hope her little man is all better now!
Live creatively!

Window // Balboa Park {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // doors of Balboa Park, Spanish Village, artists, blue, teal, turquoise, yellow, khakiAnother great theme this week at The Daily Post weekly photo challenge: Window! I just so happened to be at Balboa Park photographing doors when I saw the theme – lucky me! I found this partially covered/painted window quite mysterious, as the door is in Balboa Park’s Spanish Village where all the cottages are filled with artisans and their creations. I love that the items outside and visible in the side windows piques my interest. I love the colors in the door, and the light shining through the window where it is partially uncovered. It certainly made me curious! Does it make you wonder what’s inside?

I’ll be posting more doors from my outing as part of a 10 on 10 posting circle I’ll be participating in, so be sure to check back on the 15th for a post featuring many of the beautiful doors from Balboa Park.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!

Photographing PhotograpHers!

One of the best things about studying photography was all the outings we would go on during class and field trips. The creativity that came out of those sessions, being able to play with fellow photographers, was always a blast! I’ve written about some of those assignments here, here, here, here and here.

These lovely gals are some of the most amazing friends I made through our photography courses at UCSD. We’ve all finished the certification program, but still keep in touch and get together occasionally for a fun photo shoot. Last week was exactly one of those fun, creative, inspired, playful sessions!

And I have to admit, I was tickled pink when I saw my friend Luca was wearing her beautiful cowgirl boots. Aren’t they amazing?! Love them! I knew exactly what I wanted to photograph…

And you might remember my friend Jennifer from a blog post earlier this year “All is Not as it seams…”– you can read it here. That was during a class field trip. Miss those days!

We seriously had a blast getting these shots! Can’t wait for another session with these girls : )

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
