10 on 10 – May // Macro Flowers

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // macro flower photography Welcome to the May 10 on 10 photo circle! We have a wonderful and full group of fabulous photographers sharing 10 images from last month. If you’re already following the circle, you came from the beautiful photographer Megan Wright. If you haven’t seen her stunning work, be sure to follow the circle all the way around to see all of the gorgeous images!

My sweet friend Kim and I met at the Carlsbad Flower Fields one bright morning for a little creative photo play. It was my first time heading out there, although I’ve seen the beautiful fields over the last 20 years from a distance, driving by on the freeway. It was a wonderful outing and I definitely encourage you to head over there if you ever get the chance!

I couldn’t help but want to play with my Tamron 90mm macro lens. I brought other lenses, but my macro got all the love that day and stayed on the entire morning!

Kim and I were inspired by our lovely friend Luca – she shared images from her family outing to the flower fields last month. As soon as we saw a sneak peek of her photos, we immediately made plans to head out! Talk about being inspired ❤

Now I hope you’ll be inspired to continue the 10 on 10 circle and head on over to the lovely Suzanne O’Brien. Her posts are always delightful and her images are always stunning – full of light, color and life! Be sure to leave all the photographers some comment love

My head is spinning with inspiration today! Ever have one of those days where everything you hear resonates deeply and makes you want to take action, or better yet actually moves you to take action immediately? Yup, one of those days!

Do you watch CreativeLive? There was a fantastic class today about creative blogging taught by April Bowles of Blacksburg Belle – completely inspired to step-up my blogging! She’s beyond adorable and informative!

When you take classes, online or IRL, do you build relationships with the other students? The chat in the class today was awesome – saw some crafty friends in there and met lots of new ones! Some even convinced me I need to be on Twitter {would love it if you follow me @ConnieHCreates} 🙂

Do you talk about the tools you use in your craft? Yup, got to do that too when I wrapped up the day chatting photography with some of my favorite photographers at Capture Your 365! Katrina Kennedy and Kelly Buss are always blast to chat photography with — equipment, composition, classes – it’s all good!

Yup, I’d say it was a great day! Hope yours was wonderful too! And perfect timing that the Daily Post weekly photo challenge: Spring! inspired me to post this photo I took at Balboa Park‘s Botanical Building last week. I just had to add a little quote — is the inspiration I felt today showing through?! Hope so!

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

Live creatively!
